Disappointed in Format

I'm *really* trying to be positive here.  I've lurked in techexams for years, and it has always been my go to resource/first place to check for all things cert related.  I'm not sure if maybe I'm just being nitpicky, but this new "forum" format is absolutely unusable to me.  It no longer even feels like a forum - more like trying to have conversations in the comment section on someone's blog.  Sorry for the negativity, but I'm hoping there are plans to make this more forum like, or maybe someone else takes the initiative and creates techexams v2?

    Yeah it is completely different and probably will need more time to get used to it I use to be one everyday but now im barely on it. and it feels weird having the site owned by a training provider. if we say we don't like there training or what not are we going to get booted?

    @Clm if you took our training and did not like it, I'd LOVE to learn why. That's how we get better! 

    As long as your comments are fair, honest and professional, you can share whatever feedback you'd like. I'm not here to tell you how to live your life. :sunglasses:

    @edwilliamsky can you share what's bothering you specifically? We are working on revisions as I type this and I'd love to get some specifics from you.

    So when are the revisions coming or have they been in place already @Meggo
    It's been a few months since I was really active here but it looks the same. The color scheme is not very friendly either.

    @edwilliamsky what are your recommendations? the owners have been very accommodating, taking all feedback into consideration

    since you've lurked for a long time, I'm compelled to ask what stopped you from posting & contributing and sharing your experiences with us? others will benefit from your experience.

    Hope to see you here more often :)

    @UnixGuy I got one quick recommendation. All this blue on blue on blue gotta go man. The font size is too small on a lot forum sections.  The forum is no longer mobile friendly,  most people don't use PC's, they use their phones and screen size is limited. That together with the color scheme makes my eyes hurt, seriously.  I'm sure other people have the same issue too.

    There was a recommendation for a dark mode previously, I think it's still currently in works but there was a work around. @Meggo created a post a while ago listing some of the new changes and future developments.

    @TheFORCE would you mind sharing a screen grab or two of what this looks like on your phone? I use an S8 and enjoy the mobile version more than the desktop. Curious what phone you use and what your experience has been.

    Just to mention, I have never once browsed this site via a mobile phone or tablet. I do all of my participation here from a PC.

    I think the only persons who can say "most people don't use their PCs" are the ones who can inspect the logs.

    Sure because I have the browser set to desktop site. This is how I was using it previously,  a lot easier to navigate around.

    For real? You said that?  You might want to look above 9 posts from the top. She actually asked in this post first, then on the other one after. So i responded to the original one because this is on topic.. the other post was for something else. Learn to keep things on track and on topic before you mouth off to a senior member Lolz
