Definitely more organized. But I miss being able to look at one page and see "the whole picture".

In time it will become more comfortable of course.

New boards

Much better software than the old board. I've noticed it loads up much faster than the old board. It loads fast on a 56K dialup and on DSL it screams.

I agree with "ATA75Pilot" about seeing the whole picture, though, but as he/she said, it'll take a bit of time to get onto it.

New boards

I'd just add that I liked the user profile customization on the old board and would like to see it added to the new board if possible.

Well Webmaster,

I was one of the first to give negative comments on your previous update to your (now) old and obsolete forum.

And I grew to LOVE it and the information if gave me.

So i am open minded for this one, and it is a good concept, so go with the flow and get used to it. it is loading very fast! even on the road i can log in now and check it.

Thanks for the good work you put into maintaining this forum!

I liked being able to see the whole picture. However, I do like this new format and as for the whole picture, I'll just look at the new posts then dig back if I want more info. Thanks for putting in so much work.

Although I am sure I'll get used to this, I prefer the simplicity of the old format. Call me traditional, or just computer illiterate, there is too much "stuff" to navigate through. I am counselor, I can't multi task the way pilots do.

Speed vs. Organizaton

Webmaster --

I like the speed. Hope it can stay this fast once it starts filling up.

Organization could be improved with some new categories. There is lots of junk in the interview section that has nothing to do with interviews because of the way the sections are categorized by airline size/type. Everybody wants to comment on news in the industry in those categories. It seemed easier to keep the stuff separated in the old format. Might want to rethink the categories to focus the discussions. For example, maybe a Crashpad category, or at least list it under the Buying & Selling. There are crashpad ads scattered everywhere now. Anyway, those are my suggestions. Take them for what they are worth.

Thanks for all your hard work. There is no board out there that provides better insight for the aspiring airline pilot. I, for one, appreciate what you have to do to keep it all running. Thanks again. -- dgs

As a computer challenged individual I will eventually figure how it all comes together. All and all, you have done a great job. We appreciate what you are doing for us all.
Thanks...

Haven't checked in here in a week or so, but the new look sure is refreshing. Really like the layout and ease of use. Thanks for all of the hard work in keeping this going.

I like it. It's very easy to use and I like being able to scan through all the threads in response to the postings. Thank you for a great new look and very user friendly set up. I like the ability to have custom avatars (Sp?)

I love the new format. I like being bale to see the whole thread on one screen. EEverything is great.

One problem is that the settings for a thread catch "fire" are to low. 90% are flaming now.

I liked the old style much better. IT was easier to see all the posts on one screen. Now, I don't know where to look. The whole reason I liked this board was because it was different from other boards. Now, they are all the same.

skydiverdriver,

I couldn't agree with you more. I find it alot more difficult to see "the big picture" in this new format. With the old one, it was very easy to see when new posts were added to threads, which ones you've already read, and which users were posting, all on one page. I really like the simplicity of the old board.

The more I use this new board - the more I don't like it. You can't answer a post directly without adding to a long string. If I wanted to answer a post from yesterday, I would have to tack it on to the bottom of a long string and hope it gets read or send a private message.

Maybe this new format is better. I had become 'addicted' to the amount of information I got from the old board. With this new format, I spend less time here. Now I can focus on other things, like finding a job!

R.F.:cool:
