I’ve not been such an active contributor to BT over the years, but I have always enjoyed looking at Forum topics on a regular basis.
Since the new layout, I have hardly viewed the forum.
It was always easier to view current topics on the front page of BT. To have to access menus has ‘put me off’.
Looking at the Forum, it looks far more complicated and less inviting.
Just my observations ..
I do agree with this point of view. I do find the new layout quite cluttered with thank yous, how many times people have replied, thanked each other etc.
Plus it doesn’t seem well optimised for mobile devices and on balance I preferred the original version, antiquated though it was.
In still reading a few of the items from time to time but I’d say my usage has gone down by about 90%.
