Anyone else pretty much stopped coming to SF after the change over? - Page 5  

post #61 of 176
OK, make that 'suckled in a creed outworn'. Clearly I'm under-caffeinated this morning.

More worrying to me is the absence of content I find interesting. But SF's focus was shifting (had shifted?) well before the changeover.
Both the above fit with my point of view.

That is an option of which I'm not aware. I might agree, but wonder if it would be a viable option.

Something simply must be done to keep out the riff-raff.

Yes you are right. Before MS became anything, when it was one of the others, there were several computer companies that had artist writing programs. Adobe was written for Apple computers and later started writing for MS customers. Taking Adobe software and using it for a website does not make art. The person using it is either an artist or not. The best artist have accumulated skills and knowledge. Many websites are made by non-artist and it shows.

PS: Also if this gets rid of all the newbs, good. Seriously, everyone in this thread who joined in 2010 or 11 sucks. Not even kidding.

Or 2008, for that matter.

+1 I was surprised this thread got any replies.

 

I am waiting for the unveiling of the new B&S and also the new site is sooooo slow, to scroll a page takes forever but apart from that i like it

Yes, the site is too laggy and the content has gone down hill

I think the new design has potential to be better than the previous one, but the transition has been kinda rough. The thing that concerns me the most is that the community vibe feels like its been fragmented. It's more difficult now to view the forum at-a-glance. Even though I'd rarely dip into, say, Health & Body before, at least I could see the recent topics on the home page. To me the real value of SF is the knowledge and camaraderie of its members. When that gets broken up, it's easier to jump ship than stick around searching for stuff. And as Doc mentioned, the quality of discussion has not been very inspiring lately. I'm still sticking around to see how things go. This is (we are) still the most active and entertaining clothing board. So, here's hoping the new design is tweaked for the better and adopted heartily.

Honestly, I have had zero issues. I'm on Google chrome with an IBM t60 and the site is basically lightning fast. I haven't browsed too much of the b&s but searching for things in my size is a lot easier so far. I really like the homepage and many of the other updates to the forum.

Hey genius, did you see the words "pretty much"?
Yes, that implies frequency significantly dropping, not eliminated.
I even addressed the irony in my own post (Read the 2nd sentence of the OP, Einstein)

Landshark: Yet another shining testament of the low IQ that permeates SF.
Easily the lowest reading comprehension ability of any forum I visit, bar none.

Desktop/laptop experience has been fine. But the mobile experience is still almost unbearable (e.g., on an iphone). This site is image heavy and heavy in general (likely due to its underlying web technology/architecture), which makes scrolling on a small screen not so doable.

It's not so much the empirical merits or faults of the redesign..
I was actually more curious if the mere disruptive nature of it was enough of an impetus to discourage members from frequenting SF.
Tipping point, if you will. Anyone can adjust to a new forum, that wasn't the point.
I was more attempting to address the psychological aspect of a "routine" being broken enough to disrupt a habit.

Nothing wrong with the new forum. It has to grow on people but it is a improvement from the old one.
