They have screwed up these discussion boards so much that, after over about 25 years here, I am through with them. Best of luck to all. I think that soon (not quite yet now) will be an opportunity in gold miners that will equal or surpass that which I successfully rode in 2009.
Many TMF’ers are like me: contract employees who had zero input into the new site/format.
We saw it at the same time you did. Personally, I am still struggling some with it (age 75 computer dunce), but as I use trial and error (and re-read some of the guidelines/help posts on the site), things have gotten a bit easier. Asking questions helps also.
Is it as easy to me as the old format? No. But I used that for almost 20 years, and I remember feeling a bit overwhelmed when I came to TMF in April of 2023, having never made a post on ANY website prior to that.
So, I will continue to try and “light some candles” instead of "cursing the darkness.
