Default Site cool, forum, not so much

Well I like the lay out of the site but the forums I'm still trying to figure out and not having too much luck. So much for straight forward and simple.

I'm with ya on that. I really like the look of the new site and it's easy to navigate to find bike tests, etc.

However, the forum is complex and flings us all over the board. It's difficult to fling turds at each other when we don't know where to aim.

I only hate it because it doesn't load cleanly at work. Life behind a firewall is frustrating.

Ditto on the turd flinging. Can't seem to locate any targets.

Default Uhhhh.

I'm glad some others are having difficulty with the forums. I find it tedious compared to the previous layout. Guess I'll give it some time though and see if it gets easier.

I think you can still fling turds with the best of em, it's just that one of your favorite targets has suddenly disappeared.

The forum software is pretty broken; it's irritating to have to click around just to read all the posts on a particular thread and make sense of them.

One good thing about the forum is that anyone can post a new thread, and it's up to the moderators to allow it instead of waiting for someone to go through the articles that are in the bucket of stuff to be posted and choose appropriate ones. This should end up with more diverse threads.

Everything else is great, and should garner advertising dollars and hits that the old site had no chance of.

That said, I don't know how to vote since I'm torn between "suck ass forum" and "MO will live on due to its facelift".

I neither love or hate it.Im having a real hard time with the forum...bouncing back and forth is a pain. Also im not sure im always finding the latest news items. i think Ill get used to it,but right now its frustrating and not as easy to take a quick 5 minute brake to keep track of postings.
