feedback new layout

[ Edited ]

i will get used to it, always the same with these changes. but my first reaction is: undo, undo, please undo.

 

specially the topics take way too much space now, mainly due to the Views, New, Replies and Kudos on a new line. takes 4 lines for 1 topic.

 

[edit] added screenshot to make sure it is clear what i see.

Re: feedback new layout

Wow... you believe you'll get used to it?

I'll be a bit harsh here but I'm thinking I'll hate this for as long as it will remain.

 

What a terrible waste of space on my screen with info I do not care for. More than half of my screen wasted with useless info, near impossible to scan all the subjects for somethin I care about.. 

 

Unbelievable this got the OK of people actualy using the forum.

I am not a fan of the points you already made. I also hate all the wasted space on my screen. I also am not a fan of the Recent/Top Solutions in each section. It uses a lot of space.  In some sections it even takes more space than the categories. 

 

I am much more a fan of "Less is More" if I want to see more then it could be an option, but please don't thrust it on me. 

 

I would much rather see the links left there like "View All Recent Solutions" and "View All Top Discussions", I feel those could be useful, but I would rather I have to click to make them show, I don't want it to automatically be there.

 

 

Here is an example.

Re: feedback new layout

I'm in the "gosh it is prettier, but that's not why I'm here" croud.

 

My use case:

I read all the new posts to see if I can help

I search old posts to see if anyone else has had my issue so I can learn from them before I post or call TAC.

 

Any changes which impede those two uses are undesired and any other change is fine with me (but annoying).

 

Undesire:

  • Can't tell from high-level which forums have topics with new posts - have to enter each forum to check.
  • Pretty icons to filter by prouct families take up nearly all of the top of site real estate so I have to scroll to see anything.

 

Annoy: (but I'll get used to it if it makes you happy)

  • Topics now take up more room on the page.
  • Harder to tell which topics have new posts (bold isn't much bolder than not-bold)

I'll think of more as I use it...
