Try as I might, I cannot like the new forum. I don't understand why posts are listed two (or is it three?) times on the main page. I know the rationale, but it still confuses the heck out of me.

I can't find threads that I want to follow -- they disappear from the index twice as fast as they used to, or maybe it's three times as fast, given the over-display on the main page. And because people can't find threads, they don't reply to them, so they go even deeper into the black hole of "old" threads.

The pink and blue sucks the big cactus, too!

I find that the the left side column with summaries in the new forum shows only 2 message summaries now, might as well not have any. The earlier one had many many more and scrolled down you could see up to 50 summaries. This made is very easy to navigate. Its been quite a few weeks now but I still miss the old forum and find this new forum is just too cluttered.

I have been a member here ( posting on the Asia Forum ) for years and years.

I have just started a thread on the Asia Forum because I have enjoyed this forum for so long, it's a break from other things and overall a friendly group of people, I though still feel that quite simply the new layout is a bad design - the use of these colors is just not good, it is slow, it is not easy to navigate - all in all after years and years I am ready just to forget it - such a shame.

There are posted on various boards, I think the only thing is to post of the 'Fodor's Help' forum section

Anyway - my post on the Asia Forum with my views:


A change is only worth it if it's better - I seem to have to scroll up and down all over the place. It is just not 'user friendly'.
