What's with the new format?

Hey Zillow Gods, what's with the new format?  It's not nearly as user friendly as the old format....

Cumbersome is a great word for it Greggy.  Why couldn't they of just added spell check to the old format?  It's an awkward system now.

Yeah I haven't been on since my brother professed his love for Jen under my account, but this is really hard to follow. I had some free time to check in but it way to difficult to wade thru and see what is going on right now

One other thought, in the main page under for example mortgage, the threads are listed as the thread topic is created. It displays who creates the thread, the topic, time (hours old) and number of answers or repsonces. In this window add the person's screen name who entered the last response? This along with the thread floating back towards the top- as an active thread would get the feel of the old version back while keeping the new features of this version......maybe?

Afternoon Tammy,

Just getting familiar with the new format. One of the suggestions might be to have the "threads" under a topic "float" back to the top as an answer is submitted? In the old version it did this and made it easier to identify when a response had been submitted in that thread.

Currently, it appears the newest threads stay on top even with low responses.

I do like the feature of sorting by newest, oldest, rating, etc.....

I will say this to Zillow, thanks to the old format, I have met some really upstanding LO's, who I consider friends now.  Such as the Cochems, Pauly Martin, Ken, just to name a few.  I'd throw back with these folks any day.  Sadly, if this was the format to begin with, I doubt that would have happened.  So thanks Zillow for the old format and new friends!

NOW, can you please bring back the old format???

The new format is about as cumbersome as when ZMM came out with their new quoting format in November.  It is very awkward, but has spell check----wow!

Gotta be someone else floating around out there...
maybe everyone is still trying to figure out what happened... I could be wrong but this new format at first glance seems 'primative'

Don't know why while they where at it they didn't just change the ZMM site name to 'Dear Tammy' That would have made real sense.

Hi Tam
It's the new "Dear Abby" format... agree, kind of odd ...
