2Dec 29, '08 by pattymacMy first reaction? Bummer. Not because it's new but because the old one felt homey and this one feels cold, like they just updated it to look nice. Like updating your kitchen because HGTV says you need to and then no one comes in the kitchen to eat anymore. Change is not always necessary. Don't like it. I'll still use it, but I don't like it.
0Dec 29, '08 by FireStarterRNThere are a couple of things with the PM system that are different. When I click on the notification for a new PM it takes me to my PM inbox instead of directly to the particular PM. That means an extra click. Another thing is there's this new message verification thing. It's not necessary. If someone responds to my PM that should be verification enough. If they chose not to respond, then that's fine too, but why the extra verification thingie?

I see it as just common courtesy. I utilize the read request verification as some members choose not to reply to an important message, but clicking the read receipt let's me know they actually read the message and I no longer have to be concerned about the issue.

1Quote from CT PixieThis has been added.If someone makes a reply to a post their identity, stats, etc show, but if you are the the person who starts a post, no info is below the name automatically, unless you click the name of the poster, then the info is there.
Well, for me anyway. I have no info below Brian's name for the first post of this thread, all the following posts have the user identity stats, etc. If I click Brian's name, the the info is there. But you have to do it for each new post that you are reading if you want to find the info on the person who started the post.
You can find this by going to "My Account", then to "Edit Options", Pixie:
3Dec 29, '08 by WindwardOahuRNIt's obvious WHY they changed the design---more room for ads!!
It's sloppy, busy, cumbersome...a MESS.
3Dec 29, '08 by kythe, LPNI agree that this forum has improved much since the initial change. Thanks a lot to those who have worked hard to make this place user-friendly!
However, I still do not like the basic design. Everything is still in columns, with about 2/3rds of the page as text and 1/3 as either busy stuff on the side or just plain white space as you scroll down. I come here to read messages, so I tend to think they should take up the whole page once you click on a thread. The posts still look like separate bubbles with a lot of unused white space between. I don't know if it can be changed with the software, but other forums I have posted on do not look like that. This site is far more useable than it was a week ago, but it still somehow looks more spammy than professional to me.
2Dec 30, '08 by AnnorJust had to add my 2 cents....I dont like the new design.
0Dec 30, '08 by MulticollinearityI think I've found a glitch. When I click on another page of someone's friends list on their "my page" screen, it automatically takes me to the very bottom of the screen without the friends in view, on the next page of friends. I have to scroll back up.
Otherwise, looking good!Last edit by Multicollinearity on Dec 30, '08
2Dec 30, '08 by 3rdcareerRNAlthough I do not care for the new design, and will spend less time here as a result, I am more concerned about the News forum content. Now that "Nursing News" posts so many non-nursing or extremely geographically-localized topics EVERY DAY, that forum has become worthless to me.
Just for example, there is the cactus article (http://allnurses.com/nursing-news/st...es-358066.html) -- how does the growth cycle of cactus in Ecuador help me as a nurse? How about the one on pet stool samples' analytic value to a vet? :uhoh21: I know I can just browse past them...but before the Dec2008 change, this forum provided value without me wasting so much time. I'll now just skim the general forum here and go straight to WebMD for any news.
Thanks for letting me blow off steam here.

And click on 'click here for membership comparison' the link takes you to the allnurses.com homepage, not any kind of membership comparison.
