How to wreck a site in three easy steps…..

Update it to make it harder on the eyes.

Update it to make it harder to get around.

Remove tools that many used to visit, read and post with (Tapatalk anyone?). 
 

Have you tried going down to the very bottom of the page and clicking Theme? There are choices of Default, Uniform, and Dark. This may help with the harder on the eyes complaint.

In all fairness, as old and set in my ways as I am, I didn't find it that much harder to use, once I got used to it.

 

And yes, I know I had 1,000+ posts before, instead of the current couple of hundred. But that number associated with a given individual is probably far less important than the actual quality of their current content.

 

Granted, different users have different use patterns. So I surely can't credibly represent that my experience is typical. But if an old geezer like me can adjust to it, it can't be that bad...

Historically, the site does get quiet this time of year, meaning when the legislature is not in session, no rulings are expected in any major court cases, etc.  It's particularly noticeable in August and September.

 

For example, here are today's numbers captured a couple minutes ago, and captures archived by the Wayback Machine on dates close to or on 9/2 in 5 prior years:

You see how many people are on the site these days?  Guys, I really don't want to be negative, but the site is much harder to get around on. I pretty much quit coming ere because of it.

 

Sometimes new isn't better.

 

best,

You do realize we didn't do this on just a whim, right?  You do know we were on the brink of system failure everyday we remained with the old system? You should also know that after 17 years, the original system was no longer available.  Take a look at how others are getting around, follow some of their suggestions.  Everything is here, it's just a matter of finding it.  If it isn't worth the time and effort for you, then there isn't much we can say or do.  We have spent countless hours looking for something as similar as we could and more countless hours tweaking these 5(?) now available themes.  And the tweaking continues.

 

Better to have the new system than no system at all.  We chose new system.

Hang in there Molly!

You guys did the right thing.

I am getting a notification that says "this page isn't working right now " Each time I try to open a topic. I am able to open any of them if I do a right click and open in a new tab. This started today. Is this an issue with the site? 

It may be my PC but I have not made any (intentional ) changes. 

Just checking.😕 

The powers that be are aware of this and it is being addressed, according to another thread.

You can simply refresh the page, and not have to open a new tab.
