    Small adjustments possible and probably needed, I assume.

    Hi there,

    Maybe it takes a little time to get used to, to find what appears to be missing but perhaps is just moved,etc.

    It would be interesting to hear exactly what you mean has gotten worse.

    I myself was initially also "put off" a bit, now that I just found "Currently active users" in the mid section at the bottom of the page, and have explored the interface a bit, I am not that sure that I am negative, but I think there are many configuration options that can be adjusted, and it is not obvious to anybody what the majority of users would prefer of all the choices, I guess.

    I have one wish at the moment:
    Move the section with "Currently active users" and the display options on top.

    Also: one bad thing: earlier it was easy to subscribe to a thread. With the new design, 1-click has become 3: click the drop-down menu, select "subscribe to thread", confirm on a new page. It is generally bad to make things more cumbersome. These options are fine, but should be placed in the personalisation/options page, so that a user can set the preferred behaviour once and for all. I really miss the one-click-thread subscription possibility.

    Daniel.

    I see that moving that section on top (forum view, not post/thread view) could be a problem, as there is already so much white space wasted "up there". That part is bad design, I think. Should be possible to be more economic with the space on top, especially on pages like this, where the list below the top section(s) is the main attraction... However, still want the display options and currently active users on top... Very practical the page is refreshed and one is automatically placed on top of it.

    *L* "good"??? I'd settle for "ANY" at this point :|
    aka "Paul"

    I just read "100 Things To Do Before You Die". I was surprised that "Yell for help!!" wasn't one of them
