We want our home descriptions back!

Status changed to: New

20 likes of a topic gets Lizzie to actually read it.  We all want our home descriptions back. We have lost all personality with this change.


SO folks, please like this and pass it around.  The subject is on a couple of boards, but not enough individual likes to work.

Yes. I like having a title that describes my property. Please add it back.

Absolutely would love the listing title back.

 However, I think more important is the new formatting in the description. It's absolutely horrendous. Looks like bad web design from 15 years ago.  No lines between paragraphs, words scrunched together, bad font...


At first I thought it was a design bug, but it's been like this for well over a week. 


Someone needs to be fired in their design department. 


What were they thinking?

@Rainey0. I havent seen the format change...will look now, but the listing description can exactly pinpoint your location and type of accomodation without reading thruough the whole listing....it is the personality of the listing.

what were they thinking, they werent they just keep changing things that work.

Amy, it is not Lizzie who gets to read it. She is the moderator of the site, basically just makes sure we are not abusive to each other and so on. In order to be escalated to Popular, you need quite a few ticks and quickly, and if you manage not to get archived for lack of popularity you will need tonnes more ticks to be escalated another level. THEN someone will read and hopefully consider.

So, because this suggestion is now appearing several times but none of the suggestions have that many ticks yet (bear in mind the whole world does not see what we see yet, limited but spreading) and I ask that you scroll down and tick ALL these suggestions about missing names and host pics. If I could merge them I would, as the effort is wasted if each suggestion gets a few only. Get ticking!

@Sandra126. Well I have cut and pasted my post to a couple of active conversation, apologized for the "spam" aand asked people to go to my post and like it.  I am old and this is a rather big chore for me so would appreciate some help in that.The change may not be universal but is world wide...found out about it from a farflung post.  Australia? Dont remember


Maybe Lizzie can merge them.  This is not a small silly gripe. My description locates my neighborhood and saves guests who want the area a lot of time searching.


The Nashville listings do not have neighborhood option except for the airport and some church I have never heard of in a part of town few tourists would want to stay in.

@Rainey0 and others -- Until AirBnB fixes the fomatting glitches (in particular, the lack of a blank line between paragraphs), you can remedy that particular problem yourself. Go into each "field" (text box) in your listing's writeup and type a single blank space at the start of each blank line between paragraphs. That will cause the viewers' version of your listing to show blank lines between your paragraphs. I don't think it will have any deleterious effect (such as double blank lines) even after AirBnB fixes the spacing issue.
