    I prefer the old version Haiko it gives more results and I can opt to not read those I dont want to look at. I think this would also save some bandwith for you would it not?

    I think I prefer the old, though I'm sure I miss some great threads because the subject doesn't look all that interesting.

    The new is nice. Get an idea if it's worth reading.

    I voted for "old" -- same reason as Gordon.

    I think the old way looks cleaner and takes up less space but...
    I like how the new way gives a bit more info on what the thread is about. You can't always tell from a post title what it is going to be about.

    I like the new.

    If I was around longer, them maybe I wouldn't like the change. But the new gets my vote.

    Old.

    But what I REALLY like is the "New Posts" link. That wasn't working for me yesterday, and I ended up giving up on trying to figure out what was worth responding to and went away after only a few posts.

    The New Posts link is much better than the "active topics" because it not only shows that a topic was active, but also HOW active it's been today (a thread with multiple "new posts" entries is almost certain to be interesting), and who posted last.

    As for the ACTIVE TOPICS, I like the old way better (same reason as Gordon), but I just wanted to put in my vote to keep the New Posts too because of it not being there yesterday!

    Leader,

    The New Posts link was down most of yesterday because of a database issue. I was lost with out it also.

    =============
    Looks like we are going to keep the old view for the topics.

    Leader took almost all the words out of my mouth.

    I prefer the old one.
