New Forum format

Does anyone else have a new format for the forums? I for one am not liking it. Way too much scrolling here. It seems like they are wasting the whole right side of the page.

I also don't like it. It's been mentioned on a couple of other forums. TA, please listen - it's not friendly. IMHO.

I see since posting TA has added their thread. Here's a link to a thread that's been running for a few days. Most are against.

This is the link I should have added. Why didn't they add an "edit" function. That would be better.

Agreed - it's terrible. The posts are surrounded - it's like they are circling the wagons and before you know it the message board will be shrunk to nothing.

The best thing they could do for change is to get rid of the original post repeating itself on every page. Some of them are so long it is half the page, over and over.

I did find that link Bob. I tried reading all 190 comments on it but because of the new format I only got through about 50 of them and then I was dizzy and my eyes were too tired to read anymore. It's horrible. I did leave my comment of dislike on it though. What were they thinking? Not user friendly at all.

Don't like it at all!!!! Too much "other stuff" loading up the page and not enough room for the Q & A. Hard to read...not good.

C'mon TA! Dispense with all the advertisement and go back to the old format!
