This feels like a hybrid of the old and the new. What do you think of it?

I've gotten used to the avatars on the main board page, so that's going to take some getting used to not seeing. It was like we had each other smiling faces greeting us right away. ;)

I do like that the latest post info now takes us right to that post, so in one without replies, I can skip right to the end and add new thoughts. Previously I think I could only get to the profile of the last person to post.

I also like that we see more posts in each folder. You can still access the entire folder by clicking on that folder's name, but usually the last 10 posts in a folder are going to cover your needs!

Interested to hear any thoughts. Not only can I offer any help for questions, but the moderators can get our opinions easily this way to see how the new look is received. :)

I like that I can see new posts easier and like you miss seeing the avatars. It does look like a hybrid of the new and the old.

I think it's an improvement!

I do miss the avatars too but that's ok.

I had forgotten about the update & thought I had hit the wrong button at first. I think I will like this format better -- definitely like that we can see more than 5 posts per folder...I think posts got neglected when they weren't in the top 5, KWIM?

I agree that some posts were getting missed with the old layout. I also miss the avatars a lot! I liked seeing people pictures :( But I don't miss the preview of the post! I really didn't like that. So all in all, I think I will like this layout better :)

I didn't mind the preview, but I'm also not missing it, so apparently it wasn't essential to my board-happiness. ;)

I'm glad we all seem to prefer the new layout. :)
