Hello,

Just want to let you know that within the next day or two we will be launching a new page for the Forum.

The new forum page will include the new simpler top nav bar, and it will no longer have a black background.

We understand that change to what you've grown comfortable with is hard. But the page will basically stay the same, and we hope you'll find it easier to read and to use.

nincompoops, what this means is the restful black background, which doesn't overtax your PC screen, is being replaced with advertisements ...and the "thought police" are still going to continue to delete any threads that don't conform to their politically-correct bullshit !!! frog

The new forum may look a little better, but losing the side menu makes it harder to select recent topics or to move easily to different country forums.
Now that the polls and forums are identical why not merge them together ? Pointless having two separate headings.

All. CS staff deserve praise for ongoing updates to the platform, often in response to members' suggestions. Remarkable for a no charge site. Of course CS is funded by ads, consistent with our free market environment. But let's all hope it never sinks to the scummy levels of exploitation we see on f. Aa-V.

Rizlared,
We have tried to simplify the page and sidebar so have moved or removed a few things.
To go to the "All Threads" or "All Categories" pages, click on them in the breadcrumbs at the top of a thread page.

Tabs for the Country Forums are located at the top of the All Threads and All Categories pages.
We can put them back in the sidebar if they get used there.

Polls are listed on the All Threads page.
The Link in the top nav for the Polls is basically a list of all Polls separated from other threads. It's mainly for members who just want to read Polls-only, and vote on one Poll after another without entering the Forum

It costs us zero they have to make revenue just like any other business but in saying that they can charge us and skip the adverts.

Thanks for the reply, It may be just me but the side menu was easy to use and the black background made it easier for me to read the text, I rarely accessed the polls or Blogs because they were a strain on my eyes. Now I find the same with the forum.
I think it is a mistake, but appreciate that it could just be me affected.

I agree with Conrad, the return of the like/unlike thumbs, they will cause more arguments than any political/religious thread, and IMO are not needed on this type of forum.

There was a way to find out when members joined the site, I can't find it, is it still here? Otherwise I guess change is good if it makes improvements, otherwise we'd be still riding horses and cooking by campfires. laugh
