The difference in font sizes doesn't bother me as much as many of the other changes. I do find a bigger font size easier to read these days (less eye strain). However, I usually just use the zoom feature on my browser to make everything a bit bigger.

 

I am finding the tagging feature less than satisfying. It's better than nothing, but still awkward. I really hate that the Latest Tagged and Top Tagged lists show individual posts instead of topics, so you often see multiple posts from the same topic. And why does "Posts I Tagged" show up sometimes, but not others? It doesn't have anything to do with whether I am logged in or not--I've tested it.

 

I have tried using the Advanced Search feature and putting "WEN" in the "with one or more of the words" box. Then you can filter the search to show only posts in the Beauty forum. It's still not perfect, but at least you can see a list of topics (not posts) and see it in order of which one has the most recent reply.

 

This still sucks. I sent an email to the QVC Social Team to try to find out if they ever plan to bring the subforums back and if not, why not? I described all the problems I have in using the forums effectively, even with tags and searches. We'll see if I get an answer. Not holding my breath.


 

Hopefully you'll hear back. It would be great if we could get a Wen sub forum!

I wanted to add one more thing on this subject, I do not understand how and why it even came up here. This new format was given to us, and choices are here.

 

 

Like it or not, new format did come with features - Font Family, Font Sizes, Color, choices in emotioncons, etc.

People are using these features, because they are available, and obviously everyone does have her own preferences and likings. There is no reason to traduce individuals, because their choices are different from yours.

 

These complaints could be directed at Forum Hosting, not at individuals using these features made available for them to use.

 

There will never be a consensus on uniformity here anyway.

Like I said - I prefer a font that is easier for me to read. If someone else posts in smaller font size, or in color, I'll read it too.

 

I do not dream to make anyone to do things the way I'd prefer. I am going to try to respect people here, by being patient with them and their choices.


 

I have no idea what you are talking about. We were having a civil (or so I thought) discussion. Not sure why you feel people are "traducing" others.  I see no one disrespecting anyone else. Just a discussion of what we like or don't like. Did I miss a post or something?

Wonder of wonders, I got a reply! It sounds like subforums are being considered and "tested". I still don't understand what's so difficult about them and why they were eliminated in the first place. But at least it seems like there is a chance.

 

From Beth, Social Media Specialist:

"First of all, I want to thank you for your patience as we all come to grips with our “new” Community Forums. I think we all can agree that it needs fine-tuning; and if we all work together we can really make our Forums a great place for all of us to come together and share ideas, products and companionship.

 

So now, the good news! We are currently reviewing options for our customers who wish to post in a brand specific post. And we are testing the return of the brand categories…..we are listening and will continue to listen to our posters.

 

Again, thank you for your patience!"

aprimo, thank you for being so proactive and for keeping us updated on the latest news regarding a real WEN sub forum. 

 

Something odd happened this morning and I wasn't going to mention it because I didn't want to either: a) spread false/incorrect information or b) spread an unsubstantiated rumor. But since Beth mentioned: 

 

"We are currently reviewing options for our customers who wish to post in a brand specific post. And we are testing the return of the brand categories….."

 

Well, earlier this morning I was online and I clicked on the WEN sub forum link. To my surprise, I got send to a page that looked much like the main Beauty forum page, but it was exclusively for Wen postings. I was about to bookmark the page when my phone rang. When I got back to my laptop, unfortunately my laptop had signed off and so I have no record of this page... but I'm sure it was there. 

 

I'm think that now would be a good time to redouble our efforts with the Q and let them know that we really, really, REALLY want a proper Wen sub forum. 

 

Drythe started Please Bring Back the WEN Sub-forum under Beauty! thread in the Suggestion Box category. I'm going to start a new thread in the Beauty forum and link it to Drythe's thread. This way Wenners can easily post to it. Louis Dell'Olio has a LINEA line and, in the Suggestion Box category, the LINEA thread currently has 1,118 hearts on it while Drythe's thread only has 88 hearts on it.

 

I've "hearted" the heck out of Drythe's thread and, if I may be so bold, I'd like to suggest that every Wenner do the same.

 

"Heart early and often!!!"
