I enjoyed the "old" Marriott site very much. Because of the scavenger hunt, I have been able to learn a little more about the "new" site. I think those of us who liked the "old" site better because it was easier to navigate with not as many bells and whistles, can continue the flavor of that site by posting like we used to using the new topics. We can still write about hotels, Marriott Rewards, Business, etc. I would be really disappointed if some of the long tem members decided not to post their incredible posts any more. Please don't give up on this site.
It's all about change - and I am adapting as I agree, the MRI is still one of my favorite daily visits.
On an aside, I think I've got a fairly good idea of navigation and how to do certain tasks (not all the potential capabilities of this site have yet been enabled, so there are areas I'm not quite sure of the intent or purpose). Having said that, I am hoping to complete a "document" posting to share with all the Insiders by the end of the weekend. The topic will be about "How to navigate in 5 minutes - the simplified version." My goal is to explain how to do the "everyday" things that were so comfortable doing in Version 2. Then, time permitting, I will draft another document of "Advanced Features" on how to leverage some really cool things this site does have to offer that were unavailable in V2.
What would also be neat, is if we could either start a discussion or topic, of a Quickstart that people could add to, along with neat tricks users have discovered to make the process easier for new people on the site, to refer to. I would add to that Dicussion if we can find a way to make it easy to find when you first get on the site.
