problems

Yeah, I'm not complaining too loud, just pointing out a few problems that hopefully get corrected. I agree, Nuthatch, re: the font, not too crazy about that. On the plus side, pictures look a lot better (take a look at MaryE up above!!!). :)

Yep, I agree dstache

I miss that vineyard link too. My muscle memory keeps taking my cursor to where that used to be. I hadn't looked at the Shows by Year in a while, but man that's completely whack! Has the font changed on the posts and topic headings, too? Lettering seems thin, and the topic headings seem too close to each other - kinda eye-straining. Hate to turn this into a b*tch fest, but it just seems like needless tweaking to a site that was just fine before. Kinda like a "downgrade" to a more primitive and, as you say, less user-friendly version of the site.

problems

Besides those already noted, please add (1) that once we are in a vineyard thread, we can no longer just click on the vineyard link at the top of the screen (note that on this topic that link is no longer here) to get back to the vineyard, but instead have to backclick or go back to forums and start over; and (2) in the "shows & lyrics" section on the left hand of the screen, if you search by date, which used to display links with each year, now just goes straight to the first shows ('65) and you have to somehow go from there. All in all, I think the changes have made the site much less user-friendly and much less sophisticated. I assume this is just temporary and things will get better. Anyone else agree?

Agreed

I was trying to update the ABB 86-96 vine and miraculously my post showed up in a jazz vine I was unfamiliar with. I've been calling these "Vineyard Wormhole's." ;)

Yeah

I've tried to post in the New Vines topic and it brings up a 1990's vine.

I'll mention this to the tech wizards.
