    Since so many akaqa people prefer the 'old' format, do we have a choice, which one we use?

    I click o the new one now & again just to see how it's going.No problem getting back to the old one.I still prefer the oldie but I think that's something to do with my age & unwillingness to change.

    @terri....Everything new is confusing. Surely, you have been in the work force and the boss changed a system? I've been involved in that, many times....always lots of grumbling but then the realization hits that it's changing.....period! The sooner you use "the new way", the easier it is on your nerves. As the old Nike ad said, "Just do it"!

    Apparently so far we have,,however whenever someone offers you an alternative to something,,it means they want you to use the alternative,,the trick is to be able to see the cohersion that is used to manipulate you to the alternative,,watch this space..>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    Every business owner, everywhere, can do exactly what they want, whenever they want and I wouldn't call that coercion or manipulation. It's the right of the owner/entrepreneur who risks their money (not mine or yours) who has the say. The result is that sometimes, their customers don't like it and they leave. That will definitely be OUR decision (yours, mine and the other members.) That's the way I see it anyway.

    the feedback page offers 4 instead of 10 now. irritating. the 10 page was easier to read. living in silicon valley, tech people are earning an average of 80,000 and many a lot more. when people are paid all this money to 'improve' websites, phone and everything, they are not going to change back because somebody does not like it. well i guess if we all want to stay in communication, we better learn to love and like it. another good thing, we are all still here on the planet. cause i almost left a few times. so i'm happy.

    Yeah Tabber,,i guess we just gotta suck it up..>>>>>><<<<<<<<

    When i clicked on  '' Return to old format '' .  Nothing happened !  So, I think we're stuck with this one .

    tabber

    MCM,as far as i know i am still on the old one,i have never clicked on the new one,,,chose not to,do not know how long that will last for....>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    Try again, MCM. Make sure you get the pointing finger and not the arrow. I hope you can get back.

    This is the third question about the new format vs. the old format.  Are people changing their minds?

    Hey Bob, i never changed in the first place,,my reason is 2 posts above you..>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<

    @terry.....It looks as though "old format" is now gone. I guess everyone will just have to adjust. Is it really that difficult?
    Bob/PKB

    ME TOO and THIS SUCKS.
    There is no option to get back to the functional format.

    Looks like it's the new version or the new version now.

    clu

    Looks like I am stuck on the new format as today I was not given a choice of old or new. Perhaps they are trying to get me out of here quicker! BAAA!

    Asking the wrong person.

    I am unable to post an avatar at all. The old version allowed cropping, the new doesn’t and my photos are all too large. No, I like the old version. The new is neat looking but so was the old……….

    Bob/PKB

    The new version is ugly, impersonal, and has no personality.
    clu: I'm with you

    Ditto JH and Bob
