I'm sure I've said it somewhere before, but, if you just make yourself use the new version for awhile you will get used to it. Don't make it your focus...focus on the posts and the content.

I tried KE, I really did, but I hate the new version with a passion. People either love it or hate it. I am just happy we have a choice to use whichever one floats your boat.

My initial reaction was that I didn't like it. I wanted to be fair, as I sometimes warm to things slowly, so I have been using it exclusively. The few times I have gone back to the old version, I found that had become strange looking as my eyes had begun to adjust to the new format.

However, I still don't care for the 'style' of the new format. Tops on my list of dislikes is the cutsy, feminine, gingham, Holly Hobby look of the skin. Next is the light colors that make it harder for my old eyes to read. The adjustment Andy R. and his team have made since implementation have been positive.

I appreciate we are trying to make this site appealing and to keep it up to date, and I appreciate the efforts necessary to give us this site.

I've tried and tried and tried, but it just doesn't fly with me. I, too, have a bit of a challenge with the cutsey gingham look.

If ANY of you were married to my ex husband none of this would bother you

Living with him is my "barometer" of sorts...
