Well, the new boards are out. I do not like them one bit. Here are some of my complaints.
Can the margins be reduced???? It is 2 inches on each side of my 17"screen. That is such a waste of space. Some topics titles are now 4-6 lines long with two or three words per line.
Also is there a REAL NEED to bloat the top of the screen with all this Flash images and weather??? By the time it loads, there are only 3 topics showing. I can look out the window to see what the weather is where I am sitting. (Which the forecast listed says it will be 79 today.... yeah it is already 85 and a high of 90 expected.)
I complained when this topic came up that Flash slows everything down. Believe me, I know your Web designers love it. They build it and see the pages load very quickly through Verizon's internal network, then smile with giddiness gazing at their monstrous monitors. However, in real life use for us commoners, it is such a pain to have all this 'fluff' on EVERY SINGLE PAGE WE GO TO.
The KISS process has always been a great way to make things work better.
We are just getting started here and are happy to hear your suggestions. We'll be making improvements as we go along and your feedback is much appreciated.
Kudos to the Verizon group to clean up the site after the conversion to the two separate sites.
Now only one other issue I see. As not to repeat myself, it is posted in this forum.
