I am hearing from a few that the site has a lot of stuff on it and is a bit overwhelming at first....what can I do to make this all easier for you?

Well, JMO, maybe take off the music thingy on the front page. That is about the only thing I can think of. On the left side is the NAVIGATION, since it is at the top as well, maybe remove that!!! Also on the left CONTROL PANEL!!! Maybe when those are not there, it won't be so overwhelming!!! I would leave up the LATEST TOPICS though, as I think that helps getting new members...

I will go take off the navigation as it sure doesn't offer much to anyone and even confuses me. I get a lot of compliments on the music so I will leave it for now. I think the hardest is that there are so many forums and is a little bit intimidating at first BUT once people get comfortable with the site they seem to be really happy with it... I just don't know how to make it easier other than to restructure so all that is seen is the category titles and not the forums under them.....I haven't done this because it makes me nervous to restructure things now...BUT if this would make the site less overwhelming maybe the Forumotion people could help me assure the site didn't get messed up if I restructured it this way.

I really like the 'jump to:' I can click on it and scroll thru and see everything and click on where I want to go. It's really easy! Maybe make that a more prominate part of the page.

Keli, I agree with you on the "jump to part", it is so easy to use it.

I would remove anything that is redundant. If its listed somewhere on the top, remove it from the side. Its very cluttered and that's what intimidates people.

I think it is fairly easy to navigate for myself but I also like the jump to option at the bottom so the only thing I can add to is to maybe post it on the left side inplace of the tell a friend and just switch places with it. Hope this helps.

I got excited when I went to the homepage this morning and saw the fantastic Christmas colors and theme! When I came here to tell you how much I love the new look, it was still the same old one. LOL I was a teeny bit disappointed as I really like the Christmas theme but this theme is okay also as daisies are my favorite flower. :)

I am working on a Christmas theme! The problem has been that some of them don't work with the site so I continue to search.

Im probably the only person left in the modern world who has dialup but this site takes forever to load up and then reload up between every click. A lot of the pics like the top picture dont come in so for me I would like a 2" banner at the top with the name of the site and pictures on the sides of that with no background print.

I would like it better if the list of topics just came on right near the top and the extra writing was on the bottom.
For me this site includes lots of repeated scrolling down.

Debi, unfortunately a 2" top banner is too small to grab visitors attention and encourage them to explore further, I did shrink the image a bit and simplified the home page.... I will keep it this way unless I get feedback from the majority that they preferred it the way it was.

Well, I see you put it back to normal. I and JMO, am glad, as before, it looked like so much was missing. Now I am not lost any more...
