First off, congratulations to j and everyone else who contributed to the new look. It seems a lot faster, it looks like it has a lot of extended functionality, and I know how much work this was. Nice work, and THANK YOU.
Second, an apology: I know I should have logged in to the secret huddler site a long time ago and provided feedback, but only now am I getting the hang of things. I'm sure some of my questions/issues can be chalked up to user ignorance, but here are my first comments:
- I don't like the front page because I can't see the forums right away. It takes one click to get to what I consider the main page. I guess I'll just have to bookmark.
- This is a big one, and I doubt I can cure it with a user patch: I can't see whether the stickied threads have new posts! They don't show up like the other threads do. This is a big drawback, as I basically only pay attention to stickied threads these days.
- I also think the vertical spacing is too large - there's a lot of scrolling now.
- What are you guys talking about re: having the threads read last-to-first? Does this mean if I just mark forums read once, all threads will invert for me?
