Costa Rica (Tico Times)

I have been trying so hard to like this new format. Have to say, after weeks of trying, that I hope you'll stop this nonsense, and go for a page and design that is not so minimalist. I have in the past often made an example of "amcostarica" website, calling it the "ugliest newspaper web page in the world". I am sorry to say thatn in terms of readability and acessible information, amc is now better than the tico times. You're still not as ugly as amc, but you're nowhere near as usable. This format, for me, and I suspect for others, will be the death of you.

This new format is hideous! I have done the crossword since 1997 now you say no more. I will no longer be a reader. Good luck, Bob

I love the TT and, like most, have my favorite writers. I think I am shocked by all the changes. Perhaps they are necessary, but... Why not retain/ go back to the old logo as a sign of some continuity with the past while you work the other glitches out? Also while in Costa Rica, I would like to access a useful calendar of events, movies, and organizations with their addresses and phone numbers in a useable form. Does that sounds like the old TT? If this is just a platform for advertising "hits" you are going to lose a lot of fans.
