I think the site looks great.

But of course being the armchair QB that I am here are some suggestions:

Can there be a way to roll up forums that I have no interest in.  Some programs, like outlook, have arrows or +/- beside the topic title which rolls up the items underneath.  This would save screen space by not displaying forum topics that I have no interest (like OTF).

If you have ever used Yammer (Microsoft 360 program) it makes it easy to see how many new posts are in each forum.  So I would see that there are 5 new posts in "on topic" and when I'm done viewing them they would count down to showing none.  In the old format I really didn't need this becasue I only looked at the main forum and read down to what I had seen last but with multple forums it makes it easy to see there are new things to read.   This may be less important since I see the top new topics.  Since the form is new, every post is new.  I may find that this works great as is as we get more "old" topics and posts to see how the forum SW works.

But I like the look and I think it will work great and I'm one who usually hates change.

Interesting suggestions. We'll look into functional possibilities once things settled. There will definitely be some getting acclimated, but we'll all get there.

The height of confidence is standing up in a hammock.

My only thought (suggestion) on the new forum would be to perhaps consider removing the signature area in posts. It just makes it harder to scan a thread and more clutter to scroll through when you have everyone's signatures plastered under every post.  Not to mention if a guy posts 10 times in a thread, we get his same signature 10 times too. And they have nothing to do with the thread in the first place.

I know it's not bad now but as more people start using these new forums, I'm betting it'll get more cluttered. At least it has on every other forum like this I frequent.

At the end of the day, not a huge deal. Just my opinion on a possible tweak to consider. Thanks!
