Ok...last night you were down and today...all new colors and everything... it's ok....just a shock! Doesn't anyone know that old ladies don't like
unexpected change???????? ..... a notice item or warning would have been nice.

Isn't that the truth! Yesterday missing my most favorite website, having withdrawals and then all this new stuff. I am missing being able to find new posts quickly. This happened before, but I was able to see things in the original view. Now, I guess we don't have a choice but adapt. We are survivors!

Is there a way to change it back to the old format? Don't like it.

There use to be a way to change it. Not sure if it can be changed on this one or not. I have asked. As soon as I find out I will let you know if it is possible.

Please make it possible for us to be able to go back to the old way. Can't get the hang of this one it seems.

Hi All!

We upgraded the server and upgraded to a new major version of our bulletin board software, and our old themes are incompatible with the new version, which I didn't foresee. I am working to get your themes back to you. Sorry for my oversight! Please pardon the dust.

Quilt granny and i certainl y would have anounced ir if we were informed there was going to be a change.But.....we were as surprised as you all.to the person who wondered how to get to new posts. If you go all the way to your left and look at the top you will see 3 lines .click on that and a list comes up then click. On new posts and it takes you there .hopefully we can switch back .... but in the mean time if you can't find something post it and there has to.Be at least one member that has the answer for you.. I am still trying to find things also.Rosemary

ok...well I've found most things and I like the new colors...especially the soft blue and gray on the posts...it's much easier on the eyes.

At the top of the pages is the search box...then a little flower or gear icon...that is the advanced search. Other than the colors and the type being
a bit different...it seems almost the same as the old.....I like it. :)

The type could be a little bigger...it's really small in some places.

Oldcrow, I agree. At first I thought What?? Then I took a minute to look around and found I can click on the three little lines on the top left, and get several choices. I like to go to "unread posts". Then when I'm finished reading what interests me, I click on "Board Index", which is just below the three lines. Then I click "Mark Forums Read," and I'm good to go. I really like the colors better also.

Oh shoot! I would have liked that poem too!!! Try renaming it..."Darnit Doll poem" lol! I know...it's not funny when you do all that work and "poof" it's gone...maybe JohnFD can fix that for you...I hope so.

Can anyone tell me how to bookmark things now? I have finally found my old bookmarks but I do not know how to do new bookmarks of things I want to keep. Thank you for your help.

I have this design in my library of course. I concerned about the person I posted it for.

Also I noticed that many replies disappeared , especially in old topics.

the Dammit doll poem was deleted because We are trying to keep sewforum G rated.To me it was not a G rated post. FYI John had nothing to do with it being deleted.It was strictly my decision. I talked with the only other active moderator. She agreed with my decision. Rosemary

At first it was my impression also,but when I saw this topic is still online and people are responding , I decided to help with this request and post my design too. :oops: Looks like for some reason it took a little too long to remove this topic, that is why I posted my design. :(
Thank you

the problem is there are only 2 of us that have been moderating this site. We miss things as we are like the rest of you ,have families ,quilt granny also works .We put in a request for more moderators but only 1 was interested. that has not worked out well yet .I kept bumping it to the top but still no response. We do not get payed to do this .Somedays we are too busy to spend much time here , we get a lot of spam that we have to deal with that you all do not see.I have deleted requests for the poem for these dolls in the past. But apparently we missed this one when it was posted. Newbie i can understand why you filled it if it was there for a while. no one is upset with anyone. when i first came to sewforum i asked for school logo not knowing any better. but i learned that was a no no .You are so good at helping to fill requests ,I thank you so much for that . It is greatly appreciated. Rosemary

Wow! Who would have thought! I hear so much worse now...didn't even know that was considered a bad word anymore. I am so pleased now when I
hear "that" word instead of the f word. Not complaining...just surprised. Rosemary and Quilt Granny...you two do a great job considering it's for
free...and on your own time!....I admire you both for doing this job...one I would not be good at!
