Ok shock from me at the change, I do not see what I like to see, i.e. the nice clear format easy to use. I am sorry but this is not a change for the better so I do not see why it had to change?????
Lets have a poll on who wants the old one or this one...

Thanks all we will be working on little tweaks and adjustments next week also, report any issues here.

We can post up tutorials on who to use the site if that helps.

Okay so not many of you guys are liking the new look.Is it really that bad!!. I think it looks okay. Do you guys really have to leave its only different until you get used to it. If you have any complains list them and let the owners have a look at fixing it rather than spitting your dummy out and leaving.

Grumps, I hear what your saying but why was this forum changed with no notification or reasons? Tweaking it back to the old format is the best thing, worked well easy to use no need for tutorials. etc etc. I can see why folk are moving away from this which is a great shame. I have to my cost over the years fixed something that isnt broke and ended up with more trouble, this reminds me of that

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.

Members List has gone, private messaging seems to have gone, Search is now 'Google' sponsored. How much more of our information do they want?

I'll bring up these issues with the techs so they can work to get them sorted out. For the search option, if you hover over the arrow, you should have the choice of Google Custom Search or VB Search. With private messaging, what happens when you try to send a PM? Do you get some kind of error? I just tried testing this and didn't experience any issue.

Glad to hear that you're willing to give the new format a try. Hopefully it'll grow on you after awhile!

Cheers,

Erik

Thank you Erik. Where is the PM featured? Search option now shows, but what is 'VB'?

Is this site managed from abroad? Prior to log-in I noticed that the posts in the RH panel were timed at very strange hours. After log-in they reverted to UK time. Just interested.
