OMG!! I haven't had any problems since I "fixed" my computer last week. But I wanted to read this thread to see if I could pick up any more helpful hints and I did! LOVE the message board without the side bars!! SO much easier to read!! Thanks Jimpat!!
I agree with TommyWommy. This new format is not as easy to read. I hate having to enlarge my screen. As you can tell I barely post here anymore.
Oh well it's progress.

I still LOVE Couples and will keep reading the new MB but not as often as the old one.
I really don't like this new format either. It's not easy on the eyes and I really don't want to spend much time here like I used to. The tip on getting rid of the sidebars was great. I really don't like have to scroll down to the bottom to read the newest posts to a thread. The old one wasn't broken...why did you guys fix it?
I don't recall the old MB being so heavily moderated. If you post a reply at night it doesn't get approved till the next day. And I guess they didn't like my thread about people saving palapas for 2-3 hours at CSA because I don't see it, and the thread where the guy was asking what happened to it was removed too, correct me if I'm wrong. So, I guess it's just here for inane questions and not to tell people your actual experiences at Couples.
Another BIG thanks from me too !! I have just been too busy to play around w/ the new board. Those sidebars & toppers were driving me CRAZY, taking up way too much viewing room. Thanks again !!!!!
I too felt the MB was way too busy and it was driving me nuts that I had to move the bar in order to read everything because those sidebars were in the way---Now that I've heeded the advice of those more technically advanced, it's a much better fit. thanks
Here is my problem with this new board. It feels corporate and impersonal. It might as well be an S board. The Couples feel is gone. The intimate quality of posts has declined and I miss the old dogs like TommyWommy and Crabracers who added such a great personal touch.
JumpinJen - I agree with you. This message board feels cold and impersonal. I am trying to warm up to it but it is hard. Before, people would write longer more intimate thoughts and I liked that. Maybe with time this board will get better. I'm pulling for it!
