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....

Big downer, I can't post from my phone anymore! I'm not on an actual desktop all too often, so when I'm at home or during nights and checked in the forum before I could respond on my browser on my phone, but I tried to respond this weekend and nothing worked. Not the forum or personal messages! Smiley Sad

Re: Dont like change....

Oh yeah, does anyone else not really favor the "click here to see your response" addition after posting? I feel like that's just one more screen that's not needed, compared to the old forum where after you post it loads the page with your answer.

Re: Dont like change....

This whole lay out is just bad!Smiley Sad It's so hard to look at anything I wish they would of concentrated more on the things that really needed to be changed and left beauty talk alone!

Re: Dont like change....

I'm shocked (though not surprised) that the new site doesn't work on phones! I thought that because I was using a Mac that I was having trouble, but to not work on a phone is pretty strange. I think this new site is a big failure and Sephora needs to restore the old format. I spent very little time on here all weekend, my house is a lot cleaner, but I sure miss the fun. lol

Re: Dont like change....

Before on the old set up I had a few issues with personal messages not allowing me to punctualize or capitalize any of my messages, but at least I could still write a message. The laptop I have is a Mac, so if you're having trouble I wonder what I'll run into.

Re: Dont like change....

Hi ladies! I wanted to come on and say thank you all for your feedback. We realize change is hard and can be jarring, but we're working hard to make this a great experience. I am personally keeping a running list of all of your feedback here, and what you've sent me in private messages, and we are taking ALL of it into account. This is the just the beginning, there are changes and updates still being made, and we are working to bring back some of your favorite features. So please keep the feedback coming. I promise you, we're listening!

 

Best,

Candace

Re: Dont like change....

You and the Sephora team here are so receptive and welcoming, Candace! It's really comforting and reassuring to have admins and mods interact with us to make us feel connected and all on the same page. Changes can always feel uneasy, but the fact that the Sephora team makes everyone feel like they have a voice and should use it is what makes us able to all grow and continue to prosper here! Smiley Happy

Re: Dont like change....

I absolutely agree with lylysa.  It is so nice how you all are taking the feedback from the users into account.  Not many sites would do that.

Re: Dont like change....

I agree, thank you for listening to us! I was kind of shocked to come on here today and see the changes. In a weird way, it reminds me of facebook a little. So far, I am not sure whether I like it or not...but I know I will get used to it.

Re: Dont like change....

It's aesthetically pleasing, but confusing as well. It will take me a little while to get used to it.

 

I do like that recent posts pop up to the top. I didn't like having to dig around to see which posts were updated on the old version.

 

I don't like how the posts on a thread are backwards. It should be in chronological order.. but again, the old version there would be posts that got bumped up too.

 

I also like being able to reply without hitting "reply" on a message.

Re: Dont like change....

ok. I guess I have a response after playing around for a bit. Mine does show up as one long column. Also, I think giving hearts is a lot harder. I have had to click several times to get a heart to take. Again, thank you for listening to us!

Re: Dont like change....

I dont know if this was said, the responses are not in order and I dont want to read through everything backwards or out of order, but the color thing doesnt work. I highlighted my words in purple and posted it, and it came out black.

 

beautytester----Thank you so much for the link! Makes my life a lot easier!

Re: Dont like change....

My responses are not in order either!  The crazy response pattern I have been seeing lately makes a Sudoku puzzle look easy (and I hate sudoku puzzles).  

 

It also looks like some topics "disappeared."  I looked for the What are You Wearing Today thread, and I didn't see it.  I'll see if I can find it today.

Re: Dont like change....

It's a pain, but you can sort the posts within a message/question "by thread" or "linear". If you choose linear, it goes from earliest to latest. I find the limited sorting choice and the fact there's only page link on the bottom a pain, but that's at least some sort of order.

 

Fix the front page!! Fix the user profile!! I don't care how pretty it looks, it's chaos as long as those 2 remain a mess.

Re: Dont like change....

The choices are a pain.  I thought Facebook Timeline was annoying when it first came out, but I've changed my mind now.  

 

Have you played around with the different display views from your settings yet?

Re: Dont like change....

LOL, a Sudoku puzzle!  I find it like doing my taxes, I'm constantly flipping backward and forward trying to follow the track of what's going on!

Re: Dont like change....

I've been flipping back and forth as well.  So far, I'm not a fan of the individual responses to each post.  It only gets cluttered up after a while.  

Re: Dont like change....

I'm not really a fan of the new layout. It's not that I don't like change, I like it when it's for the better. This layout seems much harder to read and follow for me. I've actually found myself coming to the forums less and less recently because of it. It almost hurts my eyes in a weird way. Smiley Sad

Re: Dont like change....

I like using larger letters and colors to split up sections for easier reading and now it's not an option, boooo.  I also like to see who hearts my posts and see how many views, that's why this page makes me feel good.  So it would be great if the moderators could look into our issues.

Re: Dont like change....

I'm finding it more and more difficult to navigate through because rather than have the most currently created threads show up on the main page, the main page now shows the threads that just have the most recent responses. I'm seeing threads from 2011 being sprung up, granted sharing information and updates is helpful, but I highly doubt anyone who made a thread in 2011 is constantly checking up on it in 2012 going into 2012.

 

This is flooding the main page with old threads that frequent forum users are responding to in a sense "dead" threads as opposed to being able to help the most current topic where the poster may still be online and looking for answers to.

Re: Dont like change....

@lylysa-  Yeah, I noticed that I was responding to posts from 2011!  I am reduced to checking when a reply has been posted to tell what's new, it's so frustrating because it is a big job to dig through a post with more than a few replies. Have you noticed any new improvements with the site?  It seems like nothing has changed for nearly a week. Smiley Sad

Re: Dont like change....

@prettyinpa- I know if I see one more post from 4-2011 I'm gonna scream there's nothing new to respond to and I'm not digging thru over a years post to reply or comment. And no nothing has changed at all in a week!

Re: Dont like change....

I haven't really browsed the makeup categories due to the flood of "dead" threads.  I can understanding reviving a thread that enables a discussion of a topic among everyone, but I don't think there's a need to revive a one question topic that may already have a bunch of answers to.

 

After the update, it looked like some older threads appeared before any users provided an updated reply.  

Re: Dont like change....

I agree lylysa this is just not getting any better and I was just looking at the same thing you are talking about. Something really needs to change. We're all on here trying to make the best of it, but it's gonna take alot.Smiley Sad  Can anyone see their own hearts yet? I can see the one's everyone else has but not the one's given to me.(UGH!)

Re: Dont like change....

I totally feel you, but I feel like we might give them a little time? I hasn't even been a week yet since they made the changes. If they say they're working on it I'm sure they are. (Compared to Facebook, where if you ask them about something after a change who knows long it takes for them to get back to you!)
