Messages look more difficult to read.  I am suffering eye strain.

This new layout is a Turd.

Ugh.  Much less information on the opening screen, thus much less efficient use of my time, thus less time spent here.  Change for the sake of change.

Some things are better, some things are worse. How do quotes work?

I agree about the spaced out thread listing. I like the density of the old version better. However, some of the formatting features are nicer. The tags could be useful.

I tried to reply to another thread with my comments interwoven between quotes. It was easy to do with the old forum. It is a mystery to me with this one.

I agree it harder on the eyes. the text in the dialog box for writting this message is so small I almost can't read it.

Re: I hate the new layout..!!!

Put it into the "collasped" view; and it's the same forum in blue, rather than yellow. The trouble that I see with it is that it lumps everything into one place. Now it's as confusing as the "For Sale" forum. What they really need to do is provide a better search capability and a spell check. I don't understand, at least, a spell check. They were able to add several, other nice things in the tool bar that help. Maybe it's coming.

What is the collapsed view? I only see thread threaded and flat view.

And no different colouring for links already visited ...

... makes it impossible to find any new not-yet-read posts.

See, you actually don't need to take up forum space with "+1"s now that we have a thumb's up button.

New Name is Good!

But I really like the fact that they changed the name.  Much more appropriate name than the former one that left out the D700 and D600.

Agreed - It makes the site impossible to scan quickly for unread new threads

Agreed too... it is anoying, confussing and retrograde.

I get different colouring. What am I doing wrong?

But why can't I get a preview before posting?

And no direct links to posts from a member's Forum tab...
1

... instead just links to first and last post in a thread? If I want to find posts of a member, I want to find the posts, not just the threads.

In the Home tab, you do get direct links to posts but it shows only a tenth of the number of posts in the same space, ie, on a 13" screen the Home tab might show you only two or three posts which is close to useless.
