What is this "front page" of which you write? I've heard about it, does it actually exist?

Silly me  I always went there first even though I found myself rarely reading the "article" under the headlines......

IMO it is very difficult and uncomfortable on your eyes....big ..bold...in your face..I just bookmarked the Forums now...figure if the was anything worth reading on the FP...I find it via the Forum hub bub...then go read it...

I'd be curious to hear why the new FP is improved

Thanks for the feedback.  Can you tell me what the link in your bookmark was?  Copy/Paste to here or via PM would be great.

Looks like there will be one "headline" article, then just pics with obscure taglines for the other pics (or you can click "next" to read the next article).     The additional pics need more than tags to describe their content, and I detest clicking "next" to read something I may have no interest in...  Perhaps add the first few sentences of the article.   Scrolling was so much more convenient ;)   

While the new look is more bold.... and I hate to sound old and crotchety, I prefer the furniture in the original locations

Just click on Sailing "Anarchy Home" at the top of this page, then bookmark it.

I like the bigger ads that take up more  space of whatever else is there!!!!

I have drawn a line, not as a result of this new FP,  but a while back, I decided not to register for commenting on Disqus....enough is enough

Not sure if an update just occurred this morning, but looks different (still bold, but now back to the legacy format of listing the articles).

So to "comment" there you must log in anew with your social media or another set of id/pw???  No way gonna link SA with that, sorry. Good way to limit random comments.

When did we lose the "Where the Status Quo Blows" motto for "Speak Your Mind" on the FP?

I see that the ability to attach files in this forum  disappeared when you post a reply, but there are other ways..

I was disappointed to see the classifieds go to $25. I would have been happy to pay $5 but $25?  Makes it tough to sell anything for less than a couple of hundred dollars.

Speak your mind???? WTF pussy shit is that all about. This is making scuttlebutt look edgy.

I find it very visually distracting that the background scrolls with the content, but the ads don't.  Maybe it's because there is so much background graphic visible.

Have to say not a fan, first Wordpress, then a format that makes it almost impossible to read. 

 

I can see where they were trying to go, they just haven't got there yet.
