Hi,
I don't know if anyone here posts over there.  The format has changed.  The subjects have been divided between the three magazines so its like going to three differnt messages instead of one.

I don't like them.  They haven't brought up the archives, so all the useful information's lost Sad

They said that they will bring the aechives back as read only content.  I've noticed that traffic over there is way down since the "improvements".

I use to go there almost every day, but since the change, I don't. It's a big mess to try to find something, who posted, etc.
People are posting on the different forums and seems like every time I go there, I'm spending way too much time finding topics of interest, and the artists that were my favorites.
Although I never posted much, I did enjoy learning and seeing all the goodies different artist designed.

I think the three magazines ripped their britches when the split up everything. There are a lot of people who are frustrated and have disappeared. It's a shame because before the change, it was the most active forum around as far as all types of jewelry making.

They should design the whole thing like Craftster's Forum where all the subjects are on one page and it's so easy to navigate all the different forums. Maybe we should post the moderators a link to Crafters and show them how their forum should be set up :-)

I did mention craftster in a post but when I went back it was gone.  I pm'ed someone who know posted in that thread.  She said that it confirmed that it was delated.  She went on to tell me that when I left the thread it got very negative.  She also said she e-mail one of the editors because people should be able to say what they don't like as long as it's not nasty.

So, now I don't know if it's safe to mention Craftster or anyother craft website or magazine.  They said they spend a year on the website.  It's no good if it's not user friendly.
