Anyone else experiencing this? I tried it in multiple desktop browsers (and on mobile) and got the same thing. The headers, dividers and shading on each message are missing.

wow....this is awful!  Impossible to read and to see where one post ends and the next one begins.    It also doesn't show when a reply was posted.  Really dumb, lousy, crappy.  It is just going to continue to drive people away.

I guess that's its purpose. Shut it down.

Except oddly on the forum's homepage which has not taken on the new and "improved" format.

It’s Obama’s fault, obviously.  Putin’s Bitch has nothing to do with this.  He knows nothing about it, even after mentioning it a few times previously.  But he’s definitely the man to fix it, and will immediately get it done after you help him to stay out of jail.....oops, re-elect him!

Hi, Gals and Guys.  It's been a really long time since I last logged in.  Oy vey...this format!  How is everyone doing?  As well as can be expected in these odd times I hope.

Guess WS can't see our notes or they don't give a $hit

I actually "reported" this format mess to the moderators as an "offensive post."  No response.  And no, they apparently don't give a shite.

With all due respect to Robert and the rest , it's about social distancing. I don't think they want anyone to show up here until this coronavirus thing is over.

Because nobody would do this on purpose!

Unless there's some money saved by not including those little lines that separate posts . . .

Don't forget they also used to insert a date, some real money savings there without it.

Good to "see" you again, BRR. After this virus blows over, we need to get together for a bottle or two. Maybe get a proper "offline" going with everyone in late Spring/early Summer?

Not THAT much worse than the change. Our only hope is 5 years from now it benefits them to change to a different format.

Biggest PITA is not even the shading! It's the lack of timestamps on the post!

Terrible.

Yeah already noted above fut.

Robert hasn’t responded to my PM.

Upper left corner, the three hash marks.

I don't have  that hamburger thing, even when signed in.  I do have a tiny magnifying glass, just to the left of my avatar and screen name.

That's weird, I don't have it either. And I am logged in. I think bill has special Wine Spectator privileges. He could be a spy!

I wish. I’d sell you bitches out in a heartbeat for the right price! I wonder if it’s a PC versus mobile thing? 

Honestly, I wouldn't have even noticed a change if it weren't for this thread.  But, yeah,  having a time stamp on the posts is useful to understand how current/relevant a thread is.

If you’re on mobile, the hamburger menu is in the top left corner of the screen. Click it and the page slides to the right to reveal the menu. If you’re on desktop, the magnifying glass is in the top right corner. Also, the Advanced Search feature is much better than the default search box.

We're on our own here. WS seems to have completely abandoned the forum. I wonder if we can hire someone to hack into the forum CMS and fix it. Or make a few adjustments to the style.css file.

Also: the date stamp on each post is missing.

Time stamp used to be provided in 2 places:  (1) for each individual post and (2) on the main page after "Last Reply By" followed by the date.  Why was this basic information removed and is still missing?

Can someone from WS please respond or fix?
