than this one is going to be. Anyone frequent a forum with knowledgable people that's user friendly? I haven't forum-shopped for years.
Me too. I don't think I'm moving to the new one (nm)TJeanloz

I love progress, but I hate change. ;)

The new forum just doesn't have the same "feel" as this one, but then I felt the same way the last time they changed it. I figure I'll give it a month and see how it goes. It's the people that count more than the tech. I've actually become pretty accustomed to the fun talks we have in non-cycling discussion.

the same back-and-forth with the new format. It'll be more like a listserv, where you see the evidence that someone was there and said something, but don't see the conversation.
use the "hybrid" view, and look the the number of responsesdr hoo

That's the best that can be done. The hybrid view will give you the threaded structure, but only once you click the thread. The number of posts will show you how active it is.

That's the best I can come up with. More clicks though.

I don't like it for the reasons you have mentioned, but they did not ask for my input.
The hybrid view works fine.czardonic

I dislike the new software, but it is workable.

is cyclingforum.com...not all that great, but you can click and see entire threads and digressions like this one. they are always hitting you up for donations tho and it seems to be dominated by the same few people from the east coast all the time. they love to discuss 6/4 vs 3.25 TI and such ad infinitum. Not sure if they have a non-cycling tho.
The problem with judging by the numbersSpoiler

poster A: You are
poster B: No you are
poster A: I know you are but what am I?
poster B: Your mother.
poster A: Your mother
etc.
Total number of replies=60
Total content value=0

Maybe it would be more valuable if it showed the number of DIFFERENT members who responded. I don't enjoy topics where the poster is preaching to the choir as much as I like posts that draw out a great variety of opinions.

Some of the most interesting topics are one's you've posted that really got people thinking, but received no or few replies. Plus, I still can't get the ignore function to work.

Cyclingforum.com blows. Same with Velonews and Bicycling. There used to be one called BSA that was WAY technical and dry...not too interesting.
don't give up OldEd, I'm close to converting to DemocratContinental

But I think that Live Steam and Bill105 are the primary reasons that I'm very close to walking away from the Republicans. Only my suscpicisons that Bill and Steam are really Democrats acting like brain-dead Republicans keep me from bolting to the dark side.

Of course, if this board loses it's life then my productivity will go up, I'll get a huge raise, become the CEO of a Fortune 100 company, and need to remain a Republican to exploit the poor foolish masses.

And you're in on a secret: I love guys like that, because they make us look awful good to reasonable people. I just have to ACT like they piss me off.

Bring it on, as we say.
thats ok...105

if you arent sure about whether you believe in being dependent or independent, then the democratic party is the party for you. as for exploiting foolish masses, the dems have no elite? give me a break.
Ah bill, once again you post something utterly incoherent.redmenace

Tell you what, let's get you focused. Share with us a few of your finely-honed insights on the accomplishments of the Clinton Administration. Don't hold back now. I need something to remember you by, since I have you blocked on the new board.

lets see, made oral sex not really sex, gave a new definition to "is", made it ok to have no morals, saved us a ton of money on that intel crap we didnt need, showed us how its ok to stay in a sham marriage, taught us we cant raise our children ourselves we actually need a village (that one makes me laugh out loud), and spawned a ton of cynical chicken little anti U.S. apologist secular BS artists, like... you for instance
Oh come on, that was poor. Give us some vitriol.redmenace

Vitriol means spewing out vicious venom. I know it's a big word.
