Well, Mr. Carpetbagger, where I come from we've got something called the Missoura Boat Ride...

BTW, I see numbnuts already has his own separate threads - and one of them is rated five stars.

Default Not bad...

So far, I like it! Do prefer a continuous page of drivel rather this paging format. Makes it to easy to miss pages of useless comments that are off topic and politically charged bs...hmmm, come to think of it, new format might not be that bad after all!

More like "time-consuming pain-in-the-ass enough to make it not worth it." Even cooler would be an option to get rid of all the space-wasting crap like avatars. In other words, just like the old version.

Of course, I'm just looking it over now, so maybe I'm just not seeing it, and it isn't as subscription-lapsing horrible as it seems.
I agree 100%. Why do we need to have the comments paged if we can handle the bandwidth and memory of showing it all in one? Instead of 40 per page as the maximum, can we make it 100% (or 1000, if we need an upper limit).

Absolutely. I have no idea what's going on in 90% of this thread, because I just don't have the time to click every post or try to figure out who's saying what to who in linear mode.

MO's forums are now like most Internet forum designs - unnecessarily atomizing. Everyone ends up on little islands. And like most everything in the computer world, the software engineers simply do not appreciate the virtue of simplicity, and add layer after unnecessary layer. It's exactly what I feared the redesign would be.

I'm really hoping that the problem is my own ignorance, but so far no one's told me how to "fix" it, so...

Just like to say, so far so good. I like "the" MO 2.0. Perhaps it's time to take a Poll (in addition to starting this thread). I would assume the responsibility myself but 1.) I don't know how and 2.) I can't think of anything funny to say at 12:04 am.

Default Old v New

I like simple. This new format is not. It's way too busy. For my money you have "over-clevered" the whole process of accessing the data. I really liked the old article search layout. I also liked the continuous feed of the articles. The whole structure in one page. Neat and clean.
The whole site now screams advertising. What I appreciated before was that it screamed real content. In the "old days" your extra bit got you out of the advertising show. Now, apparently, there's no relief.

Default Old Forum was Better

The old nested version of the forum was a lot easier to follow and was only one click to see all.

Thanks for making it free though.
