I might be in the minority but I much rather prefer the old azbasspro webpage and posting methods. It seemed much simpler. Don't get me wrong, azbasspro is a great resource, I just liked the computer idiot version better.
Serpico, I was referring to the website format, not the people or content. So take it easy there bud! I've been reading and posting on this site since it first came up. Just glad to see it get a facelift!
Actually, I agree with TK (sorry I'll never call you Serpico) in a number of areas. However, this site doesn't go down and allows profile and all. As far as the guts and how the engine runs so-to-speak on this site - I haven't a clue. The other site was easier to read in respect to the fact that you could see all posts and responses on a page - quicker to sift through. To say the old site had nothing good about it is overboard. I've talked to numerous people that feel that way but won't admit it on here. Remember I am not saying anything to slam this site but TK does have a shared opinion and a point.
The new azbp does take a little getting used to, but It does stay up and I appreciate the efforts of those involved in fixing and maintaining the site. THANKS! ,.....AJ if you start painting turn lanes out there we will not be able to launch at all due to all the sunken trucks and trailers! lol
Okay, I've gotta admit... I work on computers all day long and feel I'm fairly computer literate. I really like Azbasspro, its posters (that I've met) and its contents, and believe me when I say this, I'm thankful for everyone involved in keeping it going (thanks!), but I'm finding it pretty difficult to get around. This isn't a complaint at all. Honestly, I really liked the old format where we could get into it, see what we'd read already and then skip through everything to get to the next topic or reply. Now I have no clue what I've read before without going to page 2, 3 or 4 and then scrolling through it. Obviously, the last post is going to go to the top. As something else gets posted, it bumps the top one down and takes its place. So what'll happen is that within 2 days or so, topics from page 1 may go to page 2 and so on as other topics come up.
Basically what I'm saying is, this is NOT a complaint. That's just my opinion. If I feel fairly comfortable on a computer and can hardly navigate it, how will somebody get around that doesn't know computers well? I think we may lose a few people here.
Maybe someone could come up with a User's Manual (a "how to" for dummies) and make it a "sticky"??
Once you log in, on the Forum Index page, there's a link that reads "View posts since last visit" click on that and you'll see every topic that has a new post since the last time you logged in and nothing more. It will include all the boards, (chat, reports, etc.). Just use the back button on the browser to get back to the list of new posts.
I personally like this new Forum....But the forum below is kinda the best of both worlds....A little more like the old azbasspro....all on one page......But with regristration capabilities and other goodies. I have been going to the NCBF page for along time and I have never seen it go down......and it is a high volume site to boot. Go check it out! Dan
