    So after one week with the new format: do you prefer the New Green or the Old Green?

    So after one week with the new format: do you prefer the New Green or the Old Green?


    EDIT: Modified post and title to reflect the fact that the new format has only existed for one week, not two as was originally stated.

    I"ll refrain from voting since it's an irrelevant poll. The new look of the board is here to stay & no matter how people feel about it won't change a thing.

    No. It is not irrellavent.

    Customer satisfaction is important .... even here.

    Well,

    What is your goal? If you are seeking some kind of leverage to return to the old board then this poll is totally irrelevant for the reasons Doc indicated. If you are interested in customer satisfaction it's just as irrelevant since there is a thread where I and many other can and have posted our complaints. That is where customer satisfaction is being achieved.

    The fact is I now am divided between the old and new. The new board has some features I have wanted that were not previously available. The old had some others not present here. Since the new is here to stay any poll like this is useless. Airing specific grievances openly is how you get things done. Anyone who is really interested in "customer satisfaction" can contribute much more constructively than by making a poll. But a poll will tickle some.

    As someone who has been generally critical of how the green board has been run altogether your poll is curious.

    Cheers,

    Merlot

    Mod 8 said that the last poll was biased becasue of the way the question was asked, and because it was done too soon after the new format was introduced.

    He was right on both counts.

    ******

    But a week has passed now, and the question as it is framed here is as unbiased as I could come up with.

    So I thought it was worth a go.

    Hello Doc,

    Actually, the most respected member on that board, Robin, characterized many of the membership as those with the character of a "men's locker room"...sadly.

Boards that cater exclusively to this crowd (like 2legit's attempt) don't usually last too long. But can a board manage to satisfy both this group and reviewers? Can it still encourage SP participation and agency sponsorship? What would it take in terms of controls on individual behavior and board policies to be a bi-polar board?

    Then as I indicated...the poll is irrelevant.

    cheerio,

    I like the new one but you should correct the problem with icons on several threads

    Really, Robin said that? Do you know if that's his own terminology?

    i use this board for free, so common sense tells me my opinion is the least of fred zeds concerns. what gives me the right to have my opinion count? nothing, and that is completely fair.

    when you start your own 'merb', benson, i'll come check it out. why don't i start my own? been there. i'm 104 now and too lazy to give a shit.
    Unfortunate, but true.

    Well...change is sometimes a good thing.
    It has kinda grown on me.

    Emoticons still SUCK (they all look the same)!
    And I see we still don't have chat...but I am sure they are both being worked on...
    Enjoy life my friends....

    Hello everyone,

    Benson, you may wish all you want but the new software has been implented across all of Fred's boards and after all the work involved to do the change, I believe the new version is here to stay. You can post a new poll every week but it will not change anything.

    Merlot, could you give me any examples of features that are missing from this new version when compared to the old? I myself have looked and have not been able to find anything that is missing. There are differences in the implementation of certain things, such as those with the search function, but I know of no missing features.

    Jman47, I will do what I can to find out what is happening with the chat room and will let everyone know when I have news, if Fred does not make a post regarding it, and I will look into the issue of the emoticons.

    Chat room, but I think that will probably be back after some maintenance?

    Hello johnmbot,

    We will be doing some pruning of the Suspended Members thread to remove many old posts that are no longer relevant. Once this is done you may find that you are able to cook your egg in under two minutes. That is a hot thread so once the thread is cleaned I would advise you to keep a good watch on your egg so that it does not burn. I would avoid using any thread in your egg as it may become stuck between your teeth and I would suggest a spatula to flip it instead of a poll which may not be as easy.

    Hello everyone,

    I have merged the posts from the various threads that relate to the new format into one thread dealing with comments and problems related to the new MERB upgrade. Please use that thread for any discussion on the topic. If you wish to post general comments here, feel free to do so but any post related to any problems should be made in the new thread.

    Thank you,
