Note some "shortcomings" in the new format from my view:
1. The "time of day" linked to the post is absent .... why is that an issue ... when I long on and go to the forms list cannot quickly tell whether the last post on any forum is necessarily a new post reply since I last logged on ... requiring me to navigate into the topic ... unnecessary navigation;
2. When entering the topic with a long number of pages you don't get to the last page (the last page is not listed as a click option on the topics page) requring addtional navigation once entered the topic;
3. As with the other format ... don't understand why the most recent post is not first post (as opposed to the last) ... basically run the topic posts from last post first and first post last ... makes navigation cleaner with quick access to the posting streams.
4. The "SAN DIEGO > FORUMS > FRIAR FANATICS" navigation bar needs to be both at the top of the page and on the bottom (as it was before) ... again streamlines the navigation process.
Knowing me I will have more issues once I start fully using the site ... but for now this is the opening volley. Note that I have a real bias towards making navigation the simplest quickest to get from point A to point B ... eliminating the unnecessary steps when they can be.
May not have any influence on the site developers but if you could pass this on it might help.
