Fewer posts and replies?
Having visited the forum quite often lately I can't help but notice that there's been a marked decrease in traffic since the change in format/software. To me this is likely due to a lack of comfort on the part of the users and a general frustration with the new format (inability to distinguish "read" from "unread" posts being front and center). Over the last few years I've come to value this forum as a source of both information and discussion. In my opinion the forum has become more difficult to use. It's new though, and I hope we'll see some of the missing features implemented in the near future.
