Amazon Seller Forums Redesign February 2018

This redesign is absolutely horrible.

I would rather slide down a stripper pole full of razor blades into a bucket of rubbing alcohol than to use the "new and improved" forums.

Dear Gawd!

I don't know which is more pain inducing...
Your description or the new seller forum design.

Is it true that the current posting count a day is 10? Or is it 18?
Masking of your seller names, too.

I can't make heads or tails out of it.
Well, I could if I wanted to give it my time.

Bring them all over here, I'll glady have them!

The seller forums are defaulting to show actual seller store names, not the seller name used in the forums. I don't know if this has been changed or not. I haven't figured out how many "likes" we get or what the posting amount is.

On a positive note, I have figured out that it only took 2 hours for the mods and bots to flag one of my posts as inappropriate and get a warning. I guess the community overwhelmingly noted that my post was offensive. Oh well. Live and learn.

You?
Offensive?
Say it ain't so.

So the default name is the seller's store name.
When I clicked into the forums, it stated my name was my store name or I could change it right then and there.

I can't.
I just can't on the new forums.
Hi, My name is Donna and I'm an old dawg.

Yes. It is so. On a positive note, you don't have to link an image to an outside location. You can now drag and drop a copy of a picture into the post itself and it will work just fine.

You can change your default name in the forums but I sure wouldn't post until it was changed.

I don't know how any snowflake thought that having a pure white background on each thread with no distinguishing between posts was a great idea. Headache, temporary insanity and banging my head on the wall was the result for me.

On the date of roll-out, some stupid snowflake thought it would be acceptable to link posts in the forums to social media. That quickly got stopped.

Several veteran forum posters left and are no longer posting there. No telling if they will come back once the forum gets straightened out.

No more "no" votes. Only likes. That way, all the snowflakes won't be offended when receiving 50 no votes for spouting incredibly horrible advice. The only way to call out really horrible stuff now is to actually create a post and explain why the OP is wrong. smh.

Too much to tell now. When I think of a few more things, I'll post it here.

Noted yesterday on the Amazon Seller Forums that gosh, it doesn't appear that as many persons are posting.
It has to be the redesign.

I did note the amount of sellers that posted they are leaving Amazon.
Wonder if it will hold true.

I have noticed that on my listings, some competitors have disappeared. I've also noticed new competition that is obviously clueless when it comes to pricing on Amazon. I'm in the process of picking up some things now that I know has to be costing the sellers money. Heck, I've even seen some cutthroat selling on 2018 dated products such as calendars. I guess they figure losing 10 cents per unit is better than paying disposal rate of 15 cents per unit or removal rate of 50 cents per unit.

My competitors...
So many are not bright at all.
Seriously, I question how they can manage day to day.
Those types of sellers that come barreling in for Christmas sales $$$ are finding out it isn't as easy as they thought it was.
Can't wait for those types to be gone.

just visited the new and *cough* improved *cough* amazon seller forum.  Yeowch! What a train wreck!!   Hard on the eyes and ugly as hell.  Who designed that?  A coder from 1993?

More likely some 23-year-old that thinks tween stuff is cool.

It is awful.
I can't imagine any age group liking that.
Showed my 28 year old and my 33 year old after the above comment and both of them said they wouldn't spend a moment on that forum.

I wonder how many sellers Amazon has lost to the redesign.
I used to breeze in and breeze out of the forums, but no more.
