Title says it all. Have been on the forums from day 1 of their existence and this change has finally convinced me to stop coming here (in the past have been an MVP, beta tester, and community leader member).
Using latest version of Firefox - No longer any indication of read / unread (at least that I can see), login issues if coming from webmail (already logged in and remember me for forum user name checked), and lack of posts that I feel I can help with (as an EE originally joined to help people with tech issues - these days rarely find anything to post for and just monitor posts).
EDIT: Just realized that there must have been no new posts (marking all as unread saw that the unread are srill in bold). Still not enamored with the page structure.
I find that too many websites are trying to embellish their websites.
To me, a forum like this lends itself to a plain text type format that it was.
People want to find info quickly and easily.
There used to be a lot more posts per page.
Now you have to go more pages to see the same amount of data.
Just gave the new forum a tryout and didn't realize that there is no longer a roll-over preview of the post. This is extremely helpful in determining if the post is of interest or something I may be able to help with. Just another step backwards.
Also, this forum (where my post was relegated by mods - don 't know if this comment will get me edited) doesn't even show up in the forums list when selecting from the choices above the Tech Assist forum (where this was origianlly posted) and the nuimber of posts per page is now way less than the "old" style forum (which worked well for the 8 years I have been part of this community).
At least you can still mark threads as read or unread on this forum. That feature is completely gone from the Wireless Community and has been since they switched to the Jive platform format from the Lithium platform used here.
And you still have the preview option in the text editor. I miss that too.
