Having seen this new format I find it hard to get my head around it . So I wish you the best of luck.
It is time to say goodbye to all
i'm just a newbie here, and after reading through lots of stuff here concerning recent changes to the site, i must admit i find it very confusing and difficult to navigate my way round here :(
i thought it was just down to me not knowing my way around and how things are done here, as i find my usual forum on wildlife much easier to use and find things on,
i dont know what the site was like before the recent changes, but it seems many of you feel its no a change for the better, but perhaps the powers that be will take note of your complaints and try and restore things to be more usuable ?
Limpy, I fully understand and sympathise with your feelings, it is a mess, and I think virtually everyone is of the same opinion I've communicated with.
However, as with all new formats and products, there is always teething problems, and hopefully, the creators of this mess, as it currently is, will listen, get around the drawing board and make the necessary alterations.
However, more importantly, they can only do with our feedback, and you, along with everyone else, can share your upset in many ways, but hopefully not to leave the forum.
I like the rest, will miss your posts, so please, stick it out, a little longer at least.
Haha Seaman, there will always be someone there to help us out! Even although they are two years old!
Sounds a bit like me TJ but I have no camera to bother with I have too many problems around to let something like a forum get me down. If I'm really stuck I will get the grandsons to sort my thinking out lol We had the almost 2yr old for a while today and he demanded the laptop on and wanted BBC nursery rhyme pages to sing ? along to so a simple bird forum should be easy for him to show me what to do
Limpy, I'm so sorry to hear you plan to give up on this Forum but I hope you are able to come back in a few weeks, months if necessary, and if you do, my fingers are crossed that all will be sorted here, ideally long before the Ospreys return in March/April.
I should have a few weeks off Limpy rather than leave permanently, I know with other issues you have you shouldn't have to have a stressful time trying to work out this mess, let us try and sort it and if we can't you probably wont be the only one leaving.
Don't give up on it yet, Limpy. New systems always take some getting used to and if an old codger like me can cope with it I'm sure you can.
No, Limpy, you really mustn't throw in the towel just yet. You would be sorely missed for all your updates, particularly on the Dyfi thread. Please stick with it.Continue to fume, but also ask questions. I am sure one of us would be able to suggest a solution, and certainly together we would be able to. The Powers That Be must be taking heed, even if they are not saying so.
Totally understand your point of view but I think you should just take a week off and check in again next weekend. Hopefully by then we will have had some indication of what they plan to do, if anything. If they haven't communicated anything bu then, maybe we can all have a grand leaving do
Oh dear Limpy, please do not leave. Perhaps give it a couple of weeks and hope that things will be sorted, or improved anyway!. At least it is a long time till the ospreys are back. Though I know you and Clare post on other forums also.
