Admin - the couple of posts I made were under the old format. The new format dropped from the sky. However, I thank you for your admission that the change could have been handled better and for at least sorting out the foreign date format. Also my link to the site has now mysteriously been restored. The change is still disappointing for me because there is now too much information on the screen. What was a first-class site with a user-friendly feel and excellent member participation involving a lot of goodwill has taken a bit of a hit. This might be that some of us are just 'old gits' who are deeply suspicious of the modern world and its motives and certainly don't like being led by the nose like an audience in Top Of The Pops (and if you don't know what that was, I rest my case). I am sure you are correct in the matter of compatability with mobile communications, but as I use a desktop PC hard-wired to the router (I don't trust wireless for sensitive or vulnerable communications) it is irrelevant for me.
The old site was a bit quirky when compared to other sites for other vehicles. The Antara is a bit quirky when compared to other vehicles. Perhaps Antara owners are a bit quirky? (I would insert a Smiley but that feature has disappeared). The danger is that some experienced members will drop out and leave Newbies floundering in the dark, wondering what to do about sometimes simple problems easily resolved.
Presumably we have all learnt something from the experience and after reading your other posts, where you ask for our co-operation, I will certainly give the new site a try. Once again, those who control the web and its content in general can cause a great deal of inconvenience to the 'customers' apparently at the flick of a switch. I know this from previous bitter experiences elsewhere.
We'll see how we go.
By the way, as a condition of membership of the forum can submission of the vehicle details be a mandatory requirement, to appear in every post. I get fed up with "please help me" posts where you might as well be talking about a Ford Cortina for all the information that is on display.
