Write the advertisers

Since most of you don't want to read the over 100 pages of almost universally negative feedback on the forum about the new website redesign I thought I'd put this some where it might be seen rather than buried.
I suggest everyone who is upset about the "new" site click on each and every advertiser and go the contact button on their page and tell them how you feel. I have written to each and every one, something along the lines of."The response of the new owners to the almost universally negative feedback concerning the new site redesign shows a lack of respect for cyclist's and the cycling community at large and is damaging to your product's image, and I would like to see you withdraw your advertising from cyclingnews.com" Or something similar. Let's see how long this stays on the general forum.
:eek:

I think what you're doing is a bit over the top, but I would be curious to see what kind of response you get. So, post 'em when you get 'em, if you get any. IMHO, you're not going to get much response, but we'll see.

This is both off and on this topic -

I think it is clear that the powers that be here do actually look in on the forum and website boards - now and again - though there is hardly ever a direct reply. My post on the website forum this morning must have achieved some sort of record by now, 400 views without a reply!

My post concerned something I considered to be a fundamental question of editorial policy, not something to be sniffed at. I have now, in desperation, written to the editor-in-chief in the hope of getting some sort of reply.

Not cool. Not cool at all.

I think with most changes, it takes a little while to get used to the new site. I haven't checked the thread for a while, but is there still discontent? My only complaint is the format of the race results was better on the old site, however I am fine with everything else and will not be emailing advertisers because that is just counterproductive.
