Is This Good Or Bad?

There are many features I like about this new board. However, in my signature, the codes still appeared, so I tried to get them off. My signature is not quite the way I want it. Maybe I need to "close all tags." Small thing really.
How do I reply on the board to a specific post or person? All I have done so far is add my reply to the last one? Also, in the column headed "views" does that mean the number of people who just read the posts?
I must remember to copy recipes etc from the old board!

Linda, I am also allergic to milk and dairy (along with wheat, grains, egg whites and yeast), but I eat sweet things each and every day and seem to thrive. Have you had bad reactions to sugar or other sweeteners?
I am on The Carbohydrate Addicts Diet, by Drs. Richard and Rachel Heller, and eat high protein, low carb foods all but one hour each day. That one hour I am allowed to indulge in any food or drinks which I can tolerate, and I am so happy to be able to create gluten free, milk and dairy free, egg white and yeast free desserts using sugar, honey, fructose, etc.
I look forward to reading your reply.

And, this change is way better than the last time! Last time all the info was just gone one day....and a clean, new, empty board was in it's place!
At least this time we have the old info for a month!
So start copying your favorite recipies and lists from the old board!

I hope that everyone out there in the gluten-free world will join me in saying THANKS to Scott and the rest of the celiac.com crew!

I understand where you are coming from, but I think you may be painting things a little too black! I was floored by the new board, and I still don't know how to use a lot of the new features, but I have given myself permission to learn slowly (which is actually a major accomplishment for me--I am such a perfectionist!). Now, I can't even remember the old board! You don't have to agree with me, of course, but I think changing over to this new board will prove to have been a good choice in the long run.
I hope we continue to see you around!

I realize that everyone has there own preferences and that for some change can be difficult, but I would hope that a chance for new and updated information would exite you. This board gives us a chance to really talk and help and ask questions that may have already been asked before, but I think the chance to revist old information is good, because it helps us remember. I found that on the old board, a lot of questions were being answered with "look in the back loggded info and you'll find it" but that just tells me that we aren't remembering, or that we don't want to take the time to help. This new board will help us to do that.
You know what else... I think the smiley faces are cool!

Your comment that "This board is like destroying all the ramps for people with wheel chairs" is a bit over the top--don't you think? After all, you seem to have managed to post, and you will likely get this reply. How difficult is it then? You can still search all posts, find new posts, and now you have many more options that aren't really that difficult to figure out like sending other members an e-mail directly, and even hooking up with them in a live chat (if both parties share their chat contact info in their profiles).
It sounds like you just need to spend a few minutes going through our excellent help file at:
If you do this I'm sure that you will figure out the board's new features, and grow to LOVE them (although you really don't seem to be having as much trouble as your post made it sound like you were having). This board is light years beyond the old one, and like most new things there is a bit of a learning curve that comes with all that it offers. The beauty of it is that you can use just the basic features and it will behave like the old board, or you can take advantage of its many new features and really interact and feel like you are part of a close online gluten-free community, which is my goal here.

Iím glad to see that some of the people who use to post are still around. I did react a bit harsh. Sorry about that. Good luck with the new board.
