take the initial page, more than 1/3 of the information is useless, what is the subforum about, how many threads and how many messages and other useless information, then you have to get the real interesting info from the 2/3 of the space, why ?

I'd be interested to learn what browser/platform you are using to look at the forum. While the change looks mildly different on my screen (fonts, color, and a few misc. details), it is largely identical in format and concept to the "old" version. Which is to say, I think all of the same information is on there more or less. I hadn't noticed the 1/3, 2/3, 1/5 relationships, which is why I wonder if it is reacting different on your interface.?.

I assume (right, wrong or otherwise) that this update provides better functionality behind the scenes - and maybe better searching??? I hope it isn't as bad as it sounds. ;)

It is frustrating when your donation dollars go toward a system upgrade that fails to meet your user experience requirements.

Looks ok on my screen too. But my bookmark takes me to the new posts and it looks fine and I think the fonts are better.

not complaining about the functionality, the aspect in an ipad looks that all the elements have grown bigger giving less relevance to the text
feels almost ridicuolus

this is the thing:

my screen looks like this:

more than half of the screen is filled with useless information, probably nice if you are entering the forum the first time as descriptions of the subforums,

then how many threads and how many posts ? seriously ? what for ? that is irrelevant,

it might be good to know if the subforum is active or not, but cuantlity ?

rest of the important information is squeezed in the right side of the screen

d'Q, Dan and Mark put untold hours into this forum. For free, nada, nothing!! I have no problems whatsoever with the new format. And even if I did, I would post a more diplomatic post perhaps, only perhaps, including some constructive changes that the admins MIGHT want to consider after all their hard work is done.

I am also offering a suggestion to you that I follow when I am angry or frustrated or disappointed or whatever. Before sending that kind of hot post, I read it at least twice. I proofread, edit, revise. Then I step away from the keyboard, take a deep breath and consider once again whether I really want to put this out there.

Confession, I became angrier and angrier with you as I read your intemperate posts. I was simmering. But when I came to your screen shots with the angry red "X"s and circles and question mark I really started to boil.

I don't know how Dan and Mark and Steve and others held their electronic tongues. And I will hold mine and not bang the keyboard with what I would only say in private.

Steve

PS: The title of your post is insulting. So there, I said it.
