How many people have left the site since the change in format?

Obviously excluding those who have had their accounts closed for cheating and other rule breaches

Not too sure of the figures gambit, but i think in this instance the question should be "How many people joined because of the change in format"? :)

As we can see from the statistics, the members joining is continously on the increase, up and up , its not going down at all:)

@snake  it was a serious question

@Hydra  really? where are these stats? i can't find anything on this site any more

Come on man, it doesn't take much getting used to. When it first changed people were inevitably up in arms about it, but after a week I think most people started to realise that it's as easy as the old one. Who woulda predicted that. It's just a bit of practice. You'll be fine. Anyone that leaves in rage because of it just needs to chill a bit.

@waller - there really is more to it than just getting used to new things. do all the functions you used in the old format still work? there's nothing you can't find?

@snake - i would have laughed if your joke was funny, but it wasn't. by all means crack jokes as you wish, but they've got to be funny to make people laugh

I don't know about you, all I can say is I haven't run into a serious problem, or not been able to find something that I used to be able to. Give me an example of something you can't find any more.

so there aren't actually any figures to confirm one way or the other? and these are all new accounts opened by people who don't already have one or who haven't had their previous account closed for rule breaches?

Yeah so they walk in there and there is an alien by the counter. He offers to buy them all a drink. So they start drinking and pretty soon they have a party going. The alien keeps ordering booze for everyone . Eventually everyone start inviting their friends to this thing and the bartender has to order more booze. They drink straight through the night and eventually they hand the alien a bill that is 16 foot long for the huge amount of alcohol consumed. The alien looks at the total ,casually puts his hand in his pocket and says ' have you got change for a Zonk?' .....get it ? His alien currency is different and like ,you know ,what now ....OK that was not such a good one ,I was sure you would stop me,try again?

better think more before the next one...
