I wanted to jump in and say that I think the changes that have been adopted on the site make a difference and that it's better! With a little more experience, I might get the hang of things again.
And before any of that happened, I was wanting to post a big SHOUT OUT to Mark and Dr. West for what has become a HUGE new favorite feature for me -- the email notification of a reply to a post. That one feature reduced my frustration with trying to keep up with whatever might be happening on the site to a manageable level.
I'm not sure about whether the "subscribe" to this post and the check box for sending an email in the event a reply is posted work the same way or differently, though. I have "subscribed" to a few posts, but don't know what I'm looking for in terms of notification as a result of that functionality.
I'm also not sure about how to "sort out" and effectively use what's contained in the "Cancer Info" and "Discuss"drop down menus. The titles suggest (to me, at least) that the "Cancer Info" is a link to more static content (though I know that's not true) and the "Discuss" header suggests that this is the tab you'd use to initiate a topic or engage in a Forum. I'll keep looking at it and try to figure out what I'm doing...or trying to do. Sometimes I don't even know.
Maybe later, we can figure out how to disaggregate some of the content that's been posted during this interim period and get a handle on what categories seem to resonate most with folks.
Thanks for hanging in there with us. I think we're getting closer to where we all want to be. Yahoo!
