My opinion is that the start page look too messy with the gradients. The older one looked more clean, I liked that. :(

Sorry, but there is no point in saying "The upgrade sucks" and "I want the old one back", as its a one way upgrade; once it's been upgraded, we can't go back. Obviously, it's going to take some time to get used to, for some people more than others, but it's one of those things that we just have to take with a grain of salt and try to find the positives in, even if you really think its a negative change overall.

Lots of people said the same when TamaTalk first upgraded into the software that we've had for the past year, but as we get used to it, we learn to accept it and find the best in it. In a matter of time, I'm sure we will all get to know how the new TamaTalk operates, and it will be second nature to us all. Just be patient, you will get it eventually. :)

I for one am very optimistic with the upgrade. I guess it helps that I haven't been the most active member of TamaTalk at all, so I don't find the site too dissimilar than before. I look forward to experiencing all of the new features and upgrades added within this upgrade, and with all other future upgrades to come. I believe keeping the site modern and up to date is a brilliant thing - the world moves on, and nothing moves faster than technology, and sometimes we have to move along with it, even when we don't necessarily like it at first.

:o Wow I hadn't even noticed that was gone! I can't say I will miss it much though. Using your example, I'd rather the tell us what you think part be included in the title. Maybe that's just a personal preference though.

You still can! Go to the menu on the top bar that shows your avatar image and select the Change Photo option to upload an image. The only thing that changed is we no longer have two separate images (an avatar and a photo that shows only on the profile page).

Oh!

Well yeah but I mean...
For example, in my log, the caption made it all cute! Like, Violet's Little Garden, yeah that's great, but "where I help Tamas grow" made it all cute :(

Just out of curiosity, how did TamaTalk look when it first started? :)

I loved it right from the minute I saw it, which was the day it got updated. IT FIXES ALL MY PROBLEMS!!!!!!!!

It lets me do colour, size and font properly on my log!
It stops the auto double post thing on status updates!
It LOADS FASTER instead of always going "you have posted a new topic. You have replied to a status. You have clicked a link. You have done this done that. Please wait while we transfer you." *makes me wait half an hour then logs me off*!

Now I've been registered for TWO updates...I'm starting to feel like a TamaTalk oldie...even though somehow I am still second youngest regular... :D

Great job, it's fixed all my problems! I seem to recall that on the LAST update hardly anybody liked it...it was all "I miss the old TamaTalk!" and "I wish I had taken a screenshot of the old one!", so I guess it happens every update. But I must say, both times, I thought it was a big improvement!

It takes a little time to fiddle about with the upgrade but as I've got more used to the new look and the changes to the layout of the site I really like that the navigation strip stays at the top of the page as you scroll - it really is easier and faster and the Quick Navigation is much better than the other drop down menus we used to have.

Like all things, it take a while to remember to navigate in a different way but it doesn't take too long to get used to it.

I'm loving the upgrade so far. Takes some fiddling around with, but it's great! Very sleek. One thing I noticed though...where is the "birthdays today" list at the bottom of the page? I kind of miss that. I've gotten into the habit of wishing regular members a happy birthday over the past several months. Now how am I supposed to know who to wish a happy birthday to? XD

That is one thing I am having a problem with. I can not get it to show up for some reason. You can see the current birthdays by going to the calendar itself. I am still working on getting it though. :)

Thanks! I know I'm going to sound like a complete newbie but I had to click on your calendar link to find the calendar. Where can I find it if I'd like to access if from the home page, for example? I don't think I saw it in the usual spot (under "More," if I remember correctly).
