I thought this might be a a simple way to make it clear that new site design is a disaster. We can discuss its failings on the existing thread. This one just says

Please can we have the old site lay out back

nanaK54 Mon 14-Aug-17 17:39:00

Yes please

goldengirl Mon 14-Aug-17 17:40:22

And me, please!

I don't think I'm quite up to speed as it hasn't made a tiny bit of difference to meconfused perhaps I'm not with it?

annsixty Mon 14-Aug-17 17:45:14

Oh yes, another vote from me,I really dislike it.

Greenfinch Mon 14-Aug-17 17:47:59

Not nearly as clear as it was so I too sign the petition.

Bellanonna Mon 14-Aug-17 17:48:51

Blimey, it's changed while I was out this afternoon. I was just getting fairly used to the dull grey and white and now find the "I'm on" has been changed. Really don't like it.

Alima Mon 14-Aug-17 17:51:03

Me too, the new design is a huge step backwards.

mcem Mon 14-Aug-17 17:53:00

Changed again!!?? Stop mucking about and go back to original site. Please

aggie Mon 14-Aug-17 18:02:30

I must have memory loss ! Can't remember what has changed !!

MiniMouse Mon 14-Aug-17 18:20:55

It's school holidays - have you let the kids loose on 'improving' the look of GN?!

PLEASE let us have the old features back smile

mumofmadboys Mon 14-Aug-17 18:22:04

Back to old site lay out please!

Ana Mon 14-Aug-17 18:24:04

I like the new font and size of the print, so don't feel I can sign the petition.

But there are so many little things wrong and no attempt seems to be being made to rectify them! hmm

BlueBelle Mon 14-Aug-17 18:27:51

I ll sign
Can't do the white on white and pale grey, prefer it as it was
There are definitely improvements to be done but not the things that have been changed

MawBroon Mon 14-Aug-17 18:29:46

I find the font fussy and much prefer the "sans" alternatives.
The layout achieves an odd combination of "bald" or minimalist and fussy (if that makes sense)
I liked the "old" masthead and while I can find threads easily enough I do wonder at how much has been spent on what IMO is a retrograde step hmm

devongirl Mon 14-Aug-17 18:34:52

With you too, M0nica

devongirl Mon 14-Aug-17 18:52:03

Problem is, will anybody actually see that this thread is there now?!

Notme Mon 14-Aug-17 18:59:38

Crikey! Is it worth starting a thread about?

I think it's fine anyway.

harrigran Mon 14-Aug-17 19:06:01

I didn't see anything wrong with the old layout, ' if it aint broke, don't fix it'.

ginny Mon 14-Aug-17 19:13:27

White wave, I 'm with you. Not noticed any difference.?

Swanny Mon 14-Aug-17 19:19:05

Please can we have the old site lay out back

Yes I'm signing this petition too

Jalima1108 Mon 14-Aug-17 19:24:05

Thank you M0nica

I have not looked for a little while but when I looked this evening the thread headings looked the same as the names of posters (no differentiation) and the site kept crashing.

I have now managed to access it and, although I am not averse to change, it has to be for the better and this did new design did not seem to be better but worse.
