    Really want to hit that Facebook share button. What if we all hit it?

    Nah. Looking for something innocuous to try.

    Okay I hit the Facebook button. But didn’t actually post. But it worked fine. Another reason to abandon CC.

    I respect the Confidential part. I never considered (stupidly) how far my advice or inane comments could be transferred to the internet universe on social sites as lame as Facebook.

    This time I am done. A sweet goodbye.

    I can't use this new format. It's not user friendly enough for me. So long.

    Yes, the FB button was there before. At least at one point! Never really paid attention to it!

    I really dislike the new format. Did you preview this with any of your top users to get feedback on the design? I used to be on the forum several times a day. Now it will be several times a year.

    Still hate it but today I was able to see a “see all notifications” option that wasn’t available on my mobile before.

    So where is everyone going? I'm already on Face Book pages for my kids' colleges and the high school classes of 2016, 2018 and just joined for the class of 2020. I'll stalk Art's blog for National Merit cut off info in August. Any place else others are heading to?

    I'll pop back in occasionally but certainly not daily. If the format changes could someone please send me a PM?

    System - Safari on iPad
    ▪️I do think the font could be a bit heavier to ease eye strain.
    ▪️While the wide space in the reply window is a bit annoying, I almost always Preview my comments before posting. I’m actually surprised everyone doesn’t do that.
    ▪️A Save Draft button would be really nice.
    ▪️I’m going to assume the differences in functionality between Portrait and Landscape mode are intentional - kind of like the calculator apps where basic functions are available in Portrait while less common functions are available in Landscape, though at the expense of easier readability.

    ^^^ And that's from a Forum Champion folks. (#691)

    First world problems, I know. But what a mess.

    Bummer!! I’ve tried several times over the last couple days to find Parents Cafe with no luck. So far I have found only about four forums, none of which I utilize anymore. I found instructions on how to locate the list of forums, but I got nothing more using those than when I puttered around myself.

    I’ll give it a couple more days in hopes things settle down and I can find my way around again. Otherwise, I’ll be sad to be unable to navigate this site. 🙁

    Just chiming in to echo the disappointment.
    - Way too much whitespace when reading on my phone.
    - too difficult to navigate.

    As a go-to place not only to learn and read, but also help advise and counsel, I won't be doing much of either. (and why are the lines spaced so far apart when typing a response? It is like double-spaced?)

    @treemaven What type of device are you using? For me, when I am on the "home" page of the Forums, I can easily see Parents Cafe on the right hand side when scrolling down.
