New Forum Format Sucks


The new forum format sucks. The old one was perfectly fine.

larryi - Posted from IE 9. Seems to work for me. I am on Windows 7.

No problem here either, Larry, using IE11 on multiple Windows 7 computers.

I worked in the IT department in a big manufacturing company before retirement.  I am a veteran of scores of software update rollouts and I can't remember any that didn't have chorus of 'Boo Birds' to lead the charge backwards to wallow forever in their old, outdated, feature-poor software, never bothering to even try to learn what the new software or hardware were all about.  Give it a chance.  

Also, if I were the analyst responsible at Audiogon for this new Forum client,  I would look at features available on successful high-traffic websites, and install some of them.  I would start with a sort feature allowing viewer to toggle between FIFO, First In First Out, as it is now,  to let the screen build starting with the most recent.  Perhaps you could keep the value in the profile of logged-in viewers.  This change would make it easier to navigate larger threads and would encourage the whole population of viewers to stay interested in them.

The idea is whether to sort by most recent posts or more recent  threads. This was actually discussed during the early  beta and was on the list of things to do for the developers. They implemented a similar concept for the Popular Discussions - Popular All TIme or Popular Recently.  They may well come back and add that option for the main threads. If they do, I would like to see it done like Popular Discussions - as an option at the top of the column rather than in the profile. That lets you toggle back and force as desired.
Sorry Audiogon... But this gray and white tiger stripping has got to be the worst.  I see zero value in this particular color scheme. I would suggest to pick one color,or the other.

Better yet, go back to the original format...

Please fix.
