Blog Posted:11/27/2012 10:11:00 AM

First the comment box and now they move the blog enter place. I panicked thinking they had removed blogs until I realized they moved. Where they getting their ideas from?

    I think they are trying to update with all the new technology advancement. I fumble around or ask someone for help. I am not great with computers so sometimes I find it difficult to figure out.

    It's too bad for those using their mobile phones as Kash pointed out. thankfully I am not that modern, so at least I am still able to figure things out here on my old PC. there have been a FEW things changed for the better at least. BUt I sure miss not seeing poetry comments as the main inbox page.

    though the site has a mpbile version called Mobile Poetry soup,it seems when TPS changes the layout of the site they only think of the computer version of the site and not the mobile version.It is becoming harder day by day to surf it from mobile phones.

    How do you search for specific poems. I put a title of one of Debbies poems and it never came up although anither one of hers did when I searched. Oh, Debbie you never did send me that poem.

    Oh, yes! This happened to me the other day!!! It was an unpleasantly difficult and perplexing experience...I dont know how much time I spent, but my eyes had to READ Member Poems & Poets, Famous Poems & Poets, Terms, Forms, Forum, News, Articles...until I finally found the little box "Blogs"...I thought I was the only one who has to suffer this predicament. TPS is making it harder and harder...naughty TPS! : )

    I have no idea it took me 2 days to find where they'd moved the Form directory too??? And thses CAPTCHA thigs EVERYTIME we write are STUPID..there is NO other site which requires this..OK one to sign in is fine BUT everytime we type anything..it's rediculous! ALSO the one thing which was very enjoyable ADDING ART WAS TAKEN AWAY!

    To the TPS---I think by clicking MY INBOXES we should get the poetry comments first rather than soupmail inbox.Please explain why SOUPMAILS and POETRY COMMENTS are clubbed together under MY INBOXES.I think most poets here want two separate links for soupmail inbox and poetry comments inbox at the left of every page as it was earlier.

    I agree, this makes no sense. I rarely use the email but am always checking comments.

    I think a lot of it is when you add new tabs to the bar at the beginning. You just have to move things along to fit them in. It's always a problem adding new tabs to a site, and people generally aren't that good with change, but we get used to things with practice so stick with it Michael, it will become easier xx

    I know a lot of smart phone users and they do say it is harder to navigate with them. x

    Actually when using a smartphone it makes navigating a lot harder. I rarely use my pc for the internet.

    We adjusted things based on what page people access the most. :-)
