I am not the most computer savvy person in the world I have noticed after the site was off line for a short period that the format has changed some. Actually I like it.

My question is  Why does some funny little symbols appear in some of the comments? I do not have any of those symbols on my computer and can not see where they are doing anything but annoying me when trying to read a post. I also see we do not have a signature or equipment list at the end of our posts either. No problem just curious

Looks like a new format to me as well.  A lot of text in posts looking like hieroglyphics :blink:.  On the plus side, the new emoji window offers a potpourri of fun options! 😃

I thought it was a matter of first using the tablet. Same new format on the desktop. Not sure yet if I don't like it, but leaning that way. Seems less intuitive to find previous thread activity than the previous format.

I like it.  Took a me a little to figure out how to get to the unread content, but once I got it set up it looks great

This doesn't work for me.

Very disappointing.

That's because we're old codgers who don't embrace change. 😉  Other than the odd text, too early for me to decide.

It's a much less convenient format for me.

Then again, I don't play golf anymore.

Probably time to go lurking someplace else.

How is it less convinient? It literally has the same ways to view the forum as the previous version, with even more ways to sort/filter.

Don't do that.  Like a new putter or driver, just give it a little time.

Heard rumblings that something was coming -- change is inevitable, especially as we approach 100,000 members. We're still a ways away from that, but it's the way of the web - evolve or die!

 

And is sure looks a hell of a lot easier to attach a picture!!!

What course is this?  Get a load of that rock pile will ya!  Hopefully the course is not on top of a major fault line. 😲

Redlands Mesa in Grand Junction, Colorado - par 3 17th taken from the tee box. It's DEFINITELY worth the trip. 😎

I'm really digging the new layout! Very clean interface and a lot of options for posting. Great job, MGS!!!

Mobile app hasn't changed yet. Will have to go to the desk top and see what all the hoopla is about. Then again 95% of my time on forum is thru the app. I should be ok lol

I'm poking around like everyone else (desktop version). Made a post to see how that works. Kind of surprised MGS didn't make any mention to their 100,000* members prior to launching this. Oh well, I'm sure over a little bit of time we'll all fall into the routine.

Is there a central Post/thread specifically for the new Forum as I'm sure there will be many questions, etc?
