The screenshot below is the Content Navigation bar. It's found throughout the site. It's a great way to filter topics by content type. The idea behind the Content Bar is to improve user experience. We wanted to make it easy for... Read More

    This is the only site I've visited that doesn't make the members list available.

    Going to the breakroom, clicking on new content now brings up all content, not just breakroom content.
    Any update on this? Still happening as of today.

    If you are interested in feedback: I do not find this new setup easy to use at all. The pages are cluttered and hard to navigate, features that I used regularly, such as the "new topics" feature don't seem to be there. I can't stand seeing the ads all over the place. Also, that sick yellow banner at the top, (it never seems to go very far away) is very offputting and makes me think the site is back in 1997. I'm sorry, but have to vote this as the worst iteration in all the years I have been following the site, including the years I lurked before joining.
    I whole heartedly agree, i despuse the new format, I also can no longer like a post when using my tablet, and the breakroom felk off the new yellow navication bar.....awggggggggg

    Another issue with the Like moving to the top right -- long posts. No longer is it a simple click to "like" something after reading an essay or long post, now you have to scroll up to do so. This may seem like a tiny thing, but if you're going for improved "user experience" then that is a step backward. You are now requiring users to take extra steps - scroll up, click "like," scroll down to continue to next post or reply - than before. Great if you want to phase out the use of likes! Otherwise pointless.


    thank you i now xan like again, i hate reading directions, but were there any for this horrid new format?

    Not that I saw, and that is one of my biggest pet peeves with this site- upgrades just happen with no warning (an announcement would be really appreciated), and once they do happen, there are no instructions on how to access things that have changed. Then there's the insane amount of bugs that have to be worked out- some of them each and every time there's an upgrade. (Breakroom with the what's new button bringing up posts from AN and breakroom, I'm looking at you.)

    I do understand the need for upgrades, but it is rather annoying to visit the site one day and everything is how you're used to, and then suddenly the next day it's like unexpectedly visiting a site you've never been to before. We get alerts for each and every cartoon caption/article contest, why not for upgrades as well?

    Hello!

    The clock has been missing for a few days on my page - where you go look for the last 24 hours of posts. Any idea why? The last time I used it though it was still giving me a list of both the yellow and blue side of allnurses in one list regardless of whether you started on the yellow side or blue side. It used to be that you would get the last posts on one side exclusively.

    I'm not a fan of the boxes on the right with FB and Gmail, etc. I accidentally hit them when scrolling all the time and end up going there.

    Thanks!

    From day one of the change, on any given visit, the clock will be gone, and I have to go back to the "nurses" link, then look all the way to the left side for the place to click "what's new". Whoever sold this version to the bosses certainly sold a bill of goods. I don't see myself getting used to this one at all.
