This blows!   No longer can you peruse the FP items, you now need to click on each to see what the deal is.   Instead of scolling you have to click clik click.   Given that clicks convert to cash I think this is a blatant attempt to drive up his click counts.  That is the motivation for the change here.

LOOK SCOOTER!  This just in!! You can add the state-of-the-art BLOCKCHAIN to your crappy FP now!  Why risk having script kiddie hackers jacking with your site?  Why put up with bullshit Forum posters deleting their offending trash talk?  BLOCKCHAIN them basturds.  Irrefutable.  Guaranteed to track and account for all their bullshit!  Just Do It!!

Not one aspect is improved in any way from the old site. Discuss is just horrible. I give up. Just not worth it any more

Simple question - do i spend more time on SA due to the change?  The answer is NO - confusing, hard to navigate, etc. I found I am already going to other sites to get the same news as they are easier to navigate, and I am getting time back as I am less likely to go to the forums.

 

Hope ed likes it.

I've struggled with this new design for few days now but it's so bloody horrible that I'm giving up. I'm off.

Gray san serif letters on a translucent grey background with print-through logos. Next best thing to dazzle camouflage. One less page to bother with.

Cheers,

It is as if the FP is a parallel universe...I know it is there but there is a force preventing me from entering

SA Front Page RIP 12-31-18

New FP is horrible unless you're an advertiser. Total FAIL.

Actually it won't be good for advertisers if we all stop reading it and skip straight to the forum. Less readers, less clicks, less money. Total FAIL is correct.

New FP really sucks. Used to check it several times a week. Now I can't even figure out what I'm looking at. Ad-friendly, I guess. User-friendly, not at all. Too bad. I'll miss it.

So, I click the 'read on' link on the Conceptually Speaking article which takes me to another page where there's apparently nothing more to read on about and then click on the 'leave a reply' link which takes me to nowhere. Kooky shit Sailing Anarchy!

Need to press refresh to see the latest fp posts even when launching a new browser window - or the whole browsing program. Without an active refresh you only see the content that your system loaded previously. If one hasn't figured this out, one thinks the page hasn't been updated in daze.

I have tried to look at it but I agree it is a total user-unfriendly experience.

Scot must be looking at the numbers and seeing a sharp fall off in attention on the FP.   The articles just do not grab you and pull you in like the prior format.

Having observed it now for a bit, I’d say it’s even less relevant than before

I think there was something in 2009 that was quite trenchant. Unfortunately, I can't remember what it was. It probably involved tits if I remember it at all.

So I need to manually refresh the page in my browser or it never shows me a new version? 

That's a very unique way to present new material Ed.

At first it seemed fine. The old version I like once it was consistent in opening a new tab/window when something was clicked on.  Easy to navigate, ads available but not intrusive. Now? The new version: does not connect to the forums, what's the point of that? More graphics with nothing more of value.

Needs work.

a few days ago I scrolled back through FP articles then opened  the comment section....out of 5 articles there were 3 comments total...that tells me no one is reading the article because one thing is certain we like to pop off on anything we read...and we especially will not read if we can't pop off on
