I’m sorry if this is not the right place but I can’t find a thread where we can all discuss about the new website, and I did want to express my feelings. I was also disappointed when I saw the new Nameberry plateform. I, sadly, missed the announcement (but I do understand that updates needed to be made). I feel very sorry because I know you work really hard to make this place perfect.
If I can give my opinion about the new website:
- I’m definitely sad that we lost our signatures. It’s something that I enjoyed reading while scrolling down on the different threads
- The titles and answers on a thread don’t seem separated (the lines are too light and thin) + everything is sooo white. It looks impersonal and sad. It’s harder to read/follow a conversation because of the structure.
- It doesn’t indicate when a topic contains a poll?
These 3 are the most important in my opinion. Then, I don’t really understand what the little rounds next to the titles are for because it’s not the kind of information that I need or find interesting. I, personally, think it’s pointless… but it’s the only thing we see because it has colors. There are no pages. So if you want to find an old thread you apparently have to remember the date or scroll down forever? And, you can’t make the answer area bigger (which was so convenient).
The first time I came on Nameberry, I didn’t have to read any instructions / tutorial to post my first topic, but this time -even if I have been here for years now- I had to because I felt so lost. It’s harder to find by yourself how to open a poll, and I still didn’t figure how to vote. I don’t understand how to use the categories (it tells me " There are no more [name_u]Baby[/name_u] Names topics" like if there were only 13 threads and that’s it) and, I also don’t know how to use colors for my text.
Now, I do like the new emojis, the fact that you can quote really easily a part of a text, and the “last visit” limit!
