What happened to the format of this website? This new format is absolutely terrible and a HUGE step backward for the users. The classified section is hard to read, doesn't have the same detail, most of the ads do not open without an error message and the whole thing looks like the way it used to be back when it started; PRIMITIVE! I can understand updating a website now and then, but for Christ's sake don't do it until the new version is better than the old one!

Well for one... You could scan the ads for what was of interest.. All one page.. Not have to wade through pictures and description of no interest!

"Rest Assured"? I am one of the ones out here trying to use this thing. "More User Friendly" is only true if the USERS find it so. The smaller font is harder to read, the layout makes it harder to find a specific category, Categories with new ads are not highlighted anymore, and there is no place for manufacturer, DOM, component model and number of jumps for complete rigs being offered for sale. I don't see anything advantageous with the new format. How much user input did you get before changing it?

For on thing, when brousing the adds, the date shows up in a colum that is too small. So, it uses multiple lines. (see attached)

Use a better date format like 09-16-12

That will probly solve some issues/

Cool

Agreed. This new format makes browsing ads very cumbersome. Line by line is much simpler.

When browsing the New Ads option, it gives you a two line description and a thumbnail of the image. I see where that could be a good thing, but I personally preferred just the title listing. It was much quicker to browse and click through to items I wanted to see. Now, a 25-item per page setting takes 4-5 scrolls to see the whole page.

I can't speak for anyone else but when I go to the classifieds I can only see a thumbnail photo on the first page but when I click on an ad there is no large photo in the actual ad.

I agree with post 11. Hovering over the camera produces a small thumbnail, but when you click on the ad hyperlink, there is no larger detail picture embedded in the ad.

The new adds no longer have a photo avaliable... The small icon indicating that a photo was avaliable was, is useful. Also, the reference as to when the user listed, joined was somewhat useful in determining if you wanted to deal with that person... As a scam filter

Not having "new" show up when new stuff is posted means we have to 1. look at everything or 2. remember the number of ad's each cat and each day.

I don't want to click on each one to see if there is new stuff, if I looking for a hot item in cat. I want to hit it quick when first listed and not hope I just catch it posted. For example, cypres units are hard to come by right now, I'm search for two TDM two pin units.... you can bet if they get posted they will be gone very fast, having the new listing icon helps people quickly find the new stuff.
