First off, I think that literally everything about this new layout is worse than the old. There is not one single improvement here… But if you want me to be specific, here are some of my complaints:
1. This new system does not tell you how many times a thread has been viewed. If I post something and nobody responds, then I’m still curious to know how many people read it.
2. I don’t like that the Forums page begins with the latest posts.
When I go to that page, I’m just looking for a list of sections. I don’t need to scroll down for the list - it’s quite annoying.
3. I don’t like that sections no longer tell me who started the thread (they only tell me who the latest poster to respond was). I’d rather be able to know that info without needing to click on each thread individually.
4. I can't preview a message before posting it.
