@pgn sent me a suggestion about the new look version of myLot. Having just gotten used to the old version I groaned. Now having checked it out I think it's good. The tags are highlighted i above the post, making it easier to find similar topics. Images appear at the top of a post, I've included a random one taken somewhere in London dockland? Notifications appear on the front page and through a link on the left hand side. How many myLotters have looked at the new version.

It's sitting in my suggestion box but I haven't visited the new site yet. I think I will wait a few days until I'm home and can see it on both my iPad and computer.

I don't even know how to use the new version, but my notifications have always been on the left, and my pictures have always been at the top of the post. I'm confuzzled!

I'm enjoying it. I guess I wasn't around for the "old" version.

I'm thinking you are still on the old version, Sheila Marie. Many of us just found out about the new.mylot.com within the past few days.It's what I'm calling a sister-site running alongside of the current one we were on and that you are on, I'm guessing. You can't be there unless or until you actually follow a link and login again. You can be logged in to both sites at the same time. Eventually, when they get all the bugs worked out or at least the major ones, they'll merge the two together in the sense of those that haven't crossed over as yet will end up there and wonder what happened. @Gillygirl I'm liking the speed of the new site, but I don't like the smaller font. While I do like the font on my tablet, on my desktop it's quite tiny. I do have tri-focals, so I can see without squinting but it looks so itty-bitty. I know that I can up my resolution or zoom in, but I'm already at 125% and I don't want to have to change it when I'm online elsewhere. In case you've not seen this yet, Sheila Marie here is the link. You'll need to re-login to comment here.
Anybody who has pulled up myLot on their phone or tablet knows that things looked pretty rough. We've been working on fixing this for awhile and are finally...

I was dubious at first because I'm a technophobe and I thought it might be difficult to navigate. As you say - it's easy and I'm liking it.

I have been using it since i found out about it.I am realy enjoying it, as I love it better than the other site. I have found it much faster, nicer looking, and I also like the drop down menus, which has everything in one place so we don't have to seach all over,looking for what we want.

@Gillygirl I agree, as it will make it easier to find discussions that way, and our followers. Thei was a good change, and the best one yet, I think.

@Gillygirl I did have a day or two on the old site but the switch was an easy one. What do you think about the new version?

I'm not too sure if I happen to be on the right track @gillygirl Let's see; you see, I'm not tech savy. Does it show if a particular member whom you connect with is on the new my lot?

I think that those of us that had no trouble accessing the new site have stayed to use it rather than having a look only and leaving. THere are still a few that are having issues entering in for one reason or another, or maybe all of them are password related.

I preferred the old forum format. I like the separation of subjects for reading, posting and responding rather than scrolling through tags for like interests.

The poster should make the tags relevant to interests

I didn't know there was a new version - do we automatically get to see it or can we choose between the two?

I love it. The larger font makes it so much easier to read and edit little mistakes - and big ones! And the photos don't need to be blown up. It's great.

I really like the new picture set up, it takes a little getting used to the rest but I am already comfortable with it.
