    AS a long time member and past Host. I feel that the current format on the Bird Watching forums is very unproductive. 

    The many sub forums are confusing and depletes  the collective knowledge of our many long term birders.

    I agree. I do not like this  format. I used to be on this website a few years back and loved it. Then they took away the birding pictures I enjoyed. Its too bad, today is the first day I have been on in about 3 years

    I agree. When I get on here I want to just go to one place not have to search for what I want, put it all in one place. That goes for garden and regular forum.

    I agree.  Too confusing for any newcomers.  Don’t want to discourage participants!

    I so agree, I am hardly on the bird forum any more, I don’t know where to post and where to go and read.  I really miss the old format on birds.

    Sad to say, this new format isn’t working-out for me, either – I’ve been a member since 2006. I’ve been a long time charter-member of Birds & Blooms Magazine, since their beginning… I used to love this site (religiously, read it, everyday)… now, it has become too difficult for me to navigate. I miss the old forum, so bad… feel like I lost a very good friend.   :(

    Hey all – I’m well aware of this problem and we are actively pursuing a solution. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as just getting rid of a few sub-forums, because we’d lose a lot of things on the back end. We are working on finding a good way to tighten up all the forums on Community, but it is going to take us a little bit of time. Please be patient, and in the meantime keep chatting so Birds & Blooms editors know that you enjoy having these forums available to you!
