Gotta say I'm not a fan of the new website and in particular the forums. Don't mind change when it enhances the experience but thus far it doesn't. Will see if this increases the use of the site (which really hasn't taken off like one would like) or it just bows out to their Facebook page.

Don't like the Font on the new website; old site had a way better look and feel. Blah...

Agree-- this format is really cumbersome and more difficult to use. I miss seeing the personalized "signatures", too.
I do, however, like that I can now refer back to previous comments when responding.

The new format has its ups and downs. I do like the balloon that quickly locates new posts I have not read - nice. I also like the expanded tools for fonts, colors, etc.

What I certainly do NOT like is the fact that everyone's avatars have been deleted apparently, along with the attached information (previous tours taken, etc.) My clock now shows that I have had 0 posts, when in fact I had over 770. The site also says I joined in late October of this year, when I have been a member since the forum started. Also, all of my private message correspondence has disappeared. This is a real shame. Gate 1, why did you chuck the entire history of the forums into the trash? Did you believe frequent posters would not mind?

I am all for change when it is necessary and offers improvement. When it takes a backward step, I really miss the point.

I don't like the fact that you cannot read off line, I don't like having to go into my account to actually read the forums. Plus I like to see where everyone has traveled to!!!!

We have updated our website and have implemented a new style of forums that is meant to optimize the space and make it easier for our users to connect with each other. The information that was stored in the forums (private messages, avatars, ranks) has not all been imported into the new system. We are working with our IT department to regain as much data as possible, and are hopeful that we will get the majority of the information back.

Thank you for your initial feedback on the forums as we continue to make improvements to this and other parts of our website.

Sharon, I don't think it is larger, it is just a landscape photo. You can't tell, but we were on an elephant in Jaipur. Photo taken by elephant driver.

We are continuing to make updates to our website as well as the forum section of our site. Post count, avatar data, formatting and signatures have all been restored to function and display as they used to. We are working to fix the remaining bugs in the system and hope that with the new improvements our forums continue to grow in activity.

My information did not re-appear, no avatar and it reads in my profile of sorts that I have been a members since 12/5/2015. I hate this new website design. It's not user friendly at all
