Dont like change....

It's going to take me a while to get used to this new forum.  I'm not one for change,  it does have some good features but I'm finding it a little hard to navigate.  Anybody else think good or bad?overall, I think I'll find it to be a good thing once I get used to it.

Re: Dont like change....

Hi!  I was pretty surprised when I saw all the changes too-the basic groupings of conversations seem to be the same, but I think I'll just need to spend a little time getting comfortable with it.  The format looks a bit more like a blog to me the way that the comments look on posts, and I kind of liked the more industrial layout, but I'm sure this one will be just as good once I've adjusted to it.

Re: Dont like change....

I noticed that on my profile portion I can no longer pull up an extended view of what I've commented on, only the last 5 or 6 posts, wish there was the option to go back and see all my posts and even all the posts I heart. It made it easier to check in on threads I visited/were conversing in quite often. Plus lots of times I repost longer, helpful threads so now searching for them will be more difficult.

Re: Dont like change....

I agree 100% percent on that lylysa that exactly what I was fixing to post about, I like to go back and see all the post also. I donn't why things couldn't just be left alone.

Re: Dont like change....

I don't like the change either!!! I think most of the change are probably good and I just need to get used to it, but I hate the change to the front page!

 

Am I the only one who likes to browse by most recent threads/topic instead of most recent posts? If I'm not interested in a thread/message, I don't care if it have 100 replies/posts to it! Also I like to search for threads with no replies yet and see if I can help.

 

I can get used to other changes, but if I can't browse by most recent threads (across all categories), then I'm not sure if I'm going to be on here for much longer since that's the primary way I read/post things here...

Re: Dont like change....

I hate it too beautytester things were alot better before. And your right I can already tell this is not going to be as good!Smiley Sad

Re: Dont like change....

I agree it's too much with all the new people being confused on the other one just imagine what this is going to do.Smiley Sad

Re: Dont like change....

I agree about it looking more like a blog. Blog formats are fine...for blogs, forums need to have a bit more structure to them because it's not just one person who runs it all and see multiple comments from multiple people.

Re: Dont like change....

Dude....I HATE this new site. I cant copy and paste pictures directly into my new messages (and I talk a LOT through pictures), I cant access my BT email from my profile, I cant see all of the threads that I participated in, just the last 5, and it doesnt show me who the last person was that wrote something in that thread, it just says how long ago *I* posted a message in that thread which means that I have to click on every single thread just to see if someone else joined in the conversation.

 

I might have to retire from this place...Smiley Sad Seems too complicated now!

Re: Dont like change....

Bookmark this page:http://community.sephora.com/t5/forums/recentpostspage/post-type/message/user-id/12917/

 

That and the front page are where I spent most of my time (I just replaced my user id with yours). If they deactivate that link, then I might retire with you.

 

On the up-side, they do have cuter avatars. =)

Re: Dont like change....

Hey, does anybody else notice that there have been much fewer posts in the last few days? Could this be that everyone is having a lot of trouble with the *new* site?

Re: Dont like change....

How do you tell who's hearted your post I can see everyone else's heart except the one's given to me?

Re: Dont like change....

The only way I've found to see who hearted your post is to go to your profile page and look for the most recent addition(s) to your list of "received hearts from" column. I miss that feature too Smiley Sad

Re: Dont like change....

They have to add that feature back this is driving me crazy!

Re: Dont like change....

Yeah, I totally miss that feature too!

Re: Dont like change....

I'm seriously hoping the heart feature comes back soon.Smiley Sad

Re: Dont like change....

Not liking it at ALL.  Way too hard to navigate, which is bad for how many of us are on here.  It no longer looks like a clean, streamlined forum, which is going to make it hard for a lot of us to reply to threads.

Re: Dont like change....

I'm having even worse problems- my pages load very oddly!  The whole page loads as one column, so I have to do a ton of scrolling even to get to the sign in box! I have an up to date browser (Camino 2.1.2, which is Firefox for Macs) and it doesn't work on that browser, or Safari either. My computer is somewhat older, granted, and I can't update to the newest OS for that reason, but I'm not going to get a new computer just to post on Beauty Talk! ULTA's website works just fine for me, as do all the other forums I participate in, I just don't see why Sephora has to keep doing these website changes that make it impossible for me to participate!


I also miss being able to look at my older posts, I often just copy an old post into a new question so the person gets a good answer, even if I've already used it. (It seems like a lot of the questions are repetitive, though I feel that the person still deserves an answer). If I have to rewrite all my old answers, it's for sure that I'm not going to do it. I'm with Beautytester and Sephoramusthave, if things are this difficult, I'm not going to be on here much either. BT should be fun, not a challenge! Granted, Sephoraadmin2 has written me that the IT department is working on this, but I don't see why they can't return to the old format until they get the bugs worked out. (Just my opinion here).

Re: Dont like change....

@prettyinpa- I think all of us feel the same way. You would think with all the top contributors feeling the same it would make a difference. The admin2 wrote the same thing to me.

Re: Dont like change....

hey all, does anyone know where to find your bookmarked threads?  I noticed that we can choose to bookmark specific threads and I've bookmarked a few, but now I can't find the place to list all my bookmarks!

Re: Dont like change....

I don't have time to navigate around, but I agree with Pretty in PA.  Why the change?

Re: Dont like change....

Well, the Sephora website went through an overhaul but BeautyTalk didn't, so for a while BeautyTalk section look very disconnected with the rest of Sephora site. I think the new style and avatars are chic-er, but the user interface part is less convinient, especially the front page, and access to other parts within profiles.

 

Does anyone else find the tiny teeny reply box annoying?

Re: Dont like change....

Yess!!! I have trouble proofreading because it's so teeny. My spelling and typing is bad enough that I really need to proof before pushing reply. Please Sephora, have pity on us who wear glasses already, give us a bigger box and bigger type already!

Re: Dont like change....

I used to be so happy everytime I logged into BeautyTalk, and now I'm just sad!! I keep forgetting about the changes, and everytime I log in I'm like aw man! this sucks. please sephora go back to your old ways!

Re: Dont like change....

I feel kind of lost on here now.  It looks like some replies are out of order, too.  I've played around with the display settings, but it isn't helping much.  The descending replies can start to look like a tangled mess, and some may get overlooked. 

 

Personally, I thought the old layout (one reply after another) was fine and easier to read.  The new one is just as confusing as the discussion forums I had to use for my online classes!  I can see the purpose for replying to certain replies, but it wasn't that hard to type certain usernames.
