Many thanks for the service you are providing. This website was a place where I could come, post a question on anything troubling me, or weighing on my mind, and I was sure to get a response.
I think this website is being maintained by a Parish in New York? Excellent khedma guys.
I'm really impressed with the effort you put in.
Please don't take this in a bad way, but the previous BB format was much better than this. This is very difficult to quote someone and give your answer. It makes following a thread and responding to many people in a thread very hard.
Is it at all possible to go back to the previous set up?
Note: Please forgive (or delete) the two blank posts above. I tried to add this comment to the discussion here three times, but was unable to do so until I switched from Internet Explorer to another browser. Although I had entered a couple of paragraphs worth of text, every time I tried to "save comment" I was greeted with a red line and the message "must have body content". All I could post was a series of smileys, which I have since deleted and replaced with the dots above. How ironic, when I was trying to post in a thread about the difficulty of navigating the new format!
At any rate, I would like to echo Zoxa's remarks. The new format is very awkward and and difficult to navigate compared to the previous incarnation. It has prevented me from participating in discussions here for many months. As Zoxa has said, replying to posts - especially quoting another poster line by line - is now an arduous process. In short, it has become a chore. I just happened to pop in today because an old tasbeha.org discussion happened to pop up in the results of something I was googling. I got sentimental and decided to check in. I found a discussion I wanted to participate in, but found it very difficult to quote the guy I wanted to address. He had made several points that I felt merited a reply, but it was considerably more difficult to do so than in the BB version.
I realize that we "can't always get what we want" but can we ask please why the decision was made to abandon the previous user-friendly format in favor of this one that is more awkward and unwieldy?
