Well, It looks pretty much the same to me. I was just wondering changes were made.

I think the changes are great. It’s more interesting visually, and the threads seem to stay on FOREVER. In the past version, the threads disappeared once they migrated off the first page. I think the ability to track posts over time is a very valuable function.

There’s a post in the Introductions about the changes.

All of the threads have RSS feeds (as well as feeds for the entire board), and there’s now private messaging functionality.

I see profiles are viewable now too.

need to change the link color. orange makes it kind of difficult to read the link text.

plus the main forum screen is kind of ugly, jumbled up, and the text is too small….in my opinion.

I second Pratt’s criticism above regarding the orange and the text size.

Also, it was nice, in the old format, to see the heading of the most recent topic posted on the main message board – very minor point.

RSS feed is a great idea and overall the new message board works well.

I get that stripping extra html is a good thing for spam control, but could we get moderated image hosting/posting maybe? I liked the pictures.

Freshness doesn’t appear to be working right. For example, on Do It Yourself, it is listed as 3 weeks on the main page but 12 hours within the forum.
