    New article format for updates.

    I don't know where else to post this... this seemed to be the best spot.

    I think it would be a good idea to still have an option to view the In The Parks column in one long article. Because for me at least, it takes 10 times longer to have to go click through each individual section.(not an exaggeration) I have crappy Century Link pathetic excuse for internet. So it is SUBSTANTIALLY a hassle to have to load several pages instead of one. Also for some reason the new format doesn't load correctly for me the first few tries, so I have to refresh five or six times for each short section. And all this hassle with my crappy internet puts me in a bad mood, which makes reading the updates not fun. So I think having an option to read the update as one article like in the past would be beneficial to those out there who have my problem. So we can have the option of loading one page one time not 5 or 6.

    Otherwise I love the new look as it is way more professional and modern looking.

    Hi There,

    What browser are you using to view the new site? Also it just was released so optimization will still be worked on over the next week or so.

    I agree, having an option to view all the updates in one long article would be awesome. I find the new format confusing and clunky, and it's easy to miss things. Plus, I end up with more tabs open in my browser than I would like to have open.

    Re: New article format for updates.

    I just saw the new format in Orlando Parkhopper. I'm not really a huge fan of splitting it up like that (ok, I hate it.) The previous way felt more like a blog and less like a series of web pages where you could pick and choose what you needed to see. Bleh.

    Here's another vote for the way things were!

    Re: New article format for updates.

    Add me to the list of people who are not thrilled with this change. I liked having everything in one article. It just seems more cluttered now. Even the top of the articles used to have a nice header and clean look to them and now they have a bunch of black and red text with tags etc. that just looks messy.

    Add me to the list. Micechat has excellent content with beautiful pictures, but I find myself avoiding the site now. Just because there are a bunch of fancy tools for making websites, it doesn't mean you have to try to use them all. I also agree that the long updates shouldn't have been broken up. It's just a move to create more page clicks, which I understand, but it makes for a poor user experience. I'll be over at MousePlanet until these things get fixed.

    Add me too. As much as I would like to support the change, I can't.

    After a while I still have to say these changes really suck. The site is pretty much unreadable now and I can't find where anything is.
