Ok ... it's different. would try to design it more like Audio Shark, where one can respond to each individual post in a quote. Also, I am having a problem typing messages. It seems like I have stuck or slow keys. And yes, my keyboard is fine.
Hi Audiogon, The old format had a "my discussion" that allowed me to keep up and be aware of my recent/ongoing thread participation. This appears to be gone now. I could easily follow multiple threads and respond as necessary. I'd like to see this feature brought back.
Well, I guess you either didn’t like the suggestion I shared after testing the beta, or there is a setting somewhere that I don’t know how to change...
when viewing recent discussions in last 24 hours, how do I change the view so that I only the thread titles and not also see the first line of all the recent posts? The way it is now, it takes more than double the scrolling to browse the recent activity and much screen space is wasted on updates of threads that aren’t of interest.

Charles, in the upper right-corner of any of the forum pages, just click on your screen-name (or the adjacent avatar, if you choose to create one -- it would replace the "C" you probably see there now, that being the first letter of your screen name), and you'll find that.
Justin (Audiogon), I for one think it's a nice improvement, and I've had no problems with it so far.
I cannot see all my recent posts in a clean and easy way to keep up with the threads I used to. I emailed Agon and the answer is no good. If this is not fixed, I cannot use this site for forums anymore. Where is that wonderful recap of all the posts and threads I was active in? Yikes!
Grannyring 11-30-2015 5:35pm I mean we lost our recent activity page. We need it back Agon team as it
was with a new look. Very, very important. Without it we are lost.
I should add to my previous response to Charles that the "View My Activity" box on the new forum home page is where that belongs. I had made that suggestion during beta testing, but apparently it hasn't been implemented yet.
Grannyring, Exactly my concern as well, recent activity of posts placed in ongoing threads must be restored IMO. Al thanks for the suggestion, it did help but still isn't as useful as before. Grannyring (Bill) is right.
Not liking it either I can't see my own activity as before as Charles stated and going to my profile shows my posts and my replies but not a list of active thread I am participating in, very frustrating.
I always thought the moderation thing was because I was on some 'watch list' or something even though my posts have been fairly tame. Really killed desire to use it. I always would worry that by the time my comment was posted, there would be 10 others as or more useful. Really crazy for 2015. Two words for agon "release management " (uh oh....I hope I don't get put back on double-secret probation! Actually. ..I'm kinda beyond caring anymore.
Make sure you take a look at the "following" feature. You can follow a discussion, and then you will get a green notification when someone responds. You can see all the discussions you are following by clicking the "Following" link in the upper right under your username.
I really don't understand why the wheel needs to be reinvented. The "classic format" of Audioasylum is, IMHO, the best format. I finally got the help I needed to skip the old posting on each thread to see what is new in the assbackwards format of Audiogon. I don't like the new format at all, but I spend too much time on words uttered about sound reproduction. What we need is high definition comparisons, not words.
timrhu - My guess is that the old forum was very hard, if not impossible, to update. The new platform will be much easier to change and improve over time. That is a big plus.
As to improvements, the search has been improved, the "following" feature is nice. You can now choose what you want you see in Popular Discussions. The thread list is sorted immediately after a new post, whereas in the past it took time for the sort order to be updated.
akg_ca, those two fonts are exactly what I recommended during beta testing. Interestingly, as I type this response, it appears to be in Arial but I suspect when I hit preview or post it will switch to Georgia. I also recommended going bold by putting the most recent posts first so we don't have to scroll down thorough a bunch of text to get to the latest post. I agree with tbg about the "classic format" at Audio Asylum working well, not that this has to be the same, and I also agree with kr4 about not really liking the soft-colored low-contrast muted pastel look. The addition of
Avatars is interesting. Gonna take some getting used to.
