This web site is a mass of confusion to me

Posted by @briansr, May 10, 2016

@colleenyoung This whole web site is a mass of confusion to me. Is it possible to make it easier or at least known how to contact a person in our Chronic Pain Group one on one? And I have tried and tried to get at least an old picturr of me on there andvI cannot figurecitvout. How about the how to’s and the do nots listed and numbered so people like me, with no printer, and the ones that have one can write or print a copy. I can write pretty well, but as for computer savie( pain level style) rate me at 3. Thank you. briansr

Hi @briansr,
Your wish is my command. @kelseydm and I are just finalizing a “Get Started” page to upload to the website tonight. I will let you know when it is live. But we didn’t include instructions on how to upload your picture. I’m going to add that right now! The instructions are step by step and include pictures. Once they are published on the site, I’d appreciate it if you could test drive them. We want the instructions to simple and easy to follow. It would really help us out if you could try to follow them and let us know if they work for you. What do you say?

And @briansr, I also want to add that we will be implementing updates to the website next week and over the coming weeks and months that will make it easier to use. I’ll keep you all posted.

I’ll try picture wise but how do I put up a reply to a letter from Hillary
Clinton concerning medical marijuana on the federal level? briansr

I’m game. I’m working off a 7 inch tablet but I have a new 15.5 HD tablet
with keyboard. It’s just switching over is my problem. Four years with this
one it’s just well, it’s just me. I can write with this one in places where
the other one is to large. I’ll figure it out. Just use both. briansr

I agree! This site is a mess! I wonder, too, if the format could be changed
to make it user friendly.

What did she say?

Colleen, I have the same thoughts as @briansr . . . this blog site isn’t user friendly (and I’m a tech person, at that!). So confusing at times for me to get to comments I want to see. Am looking forward to the improvements!

I guess it looks good, but what am I looking for. I like the step by step
instructions but it’s quite a bit to digest in one outing. I’ll look at it
closer and closer! briansr

Hi all,
@briansr and @Paula_MAC2007 haven’t heard from either of you in quite some time. I hope all is well.
@briansr we miss your wit and advocacy in the Chronic Pain group. @Paula_MAC2007 there’s been quite a bit of activity in the MAC thread. I hope to see you both back soon.
@vickiekay thanks for continuing to post despite the less than perfect functionality.

I’m happy to announce that we’ve made a number of updates and the groups and discussions should be overall easier to use. The email notifications have been updated to take you directly to the message in the thread. Each discussion thread allows you to post replies to the main topic or to respond to someone’s comment. Your feedback on this initial round of improvements is welcome. And we’ve got more coming.

hello I am also a little new to this site. Confusing yes…

Hi @lisa54. It looks like you are finding your way around Connect very well. I see that you’ve had success with the Search functionality and have re-ignited several older discussions about MGUS that we scattered throughout the site. I have merged the older discussions and moved all of them to the Cancer group to bring members and discussions about MGUS together. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/cancer/

Please let me know what else you find confusing so that we can make the site better. We’re working on improvements.
