    No....

    I guess I'm old fashioned. The old board was simple, easy to use, etc. It was like the 1974 Corrolla I had in college. This board is a little initimidating and scattered...

    Just like...

    This is the same software as the BBS on Speed Channel's message board. The big improvement over the Speed BBS is that each post is differentiated by alternating shades. Good job, TW! I like it!

    The old board was tragic. A relic as inefficient as the old newsgroups used to be. I kept going only because I couldn't find another decent tennis message board. Now the format has finally caught up to the content. Good job, TW.

    Ease of use, customizability, and finally the ability to enhance posts (in particular, to quote/respond properly) using the same set of tools used everywhere else on the planet.

    Now, if I could just get my country to finally adopt the metric system. :roll:

    No, I don't like it.

    Previous version was much more straightforward - and MUCH easier to read. These letters are much too small.

    Type in 'Huge' font size... PLEASE....

    I'm a fan of the old stuff where we didn't look like every other messge board on the net, but let's see how this does over time.

    I'm willing to give this board a chance. But I think the old board was more intuitive.

    That doesn't work on the new boards. That's the whole point of the complaint.
