OK. Im starting this thread to give the admins suggestions/cratiques about this new forums software.

So far so good, but a few quibbles.

#1, get rid of Topic lead. Its not needed, and is just another field to fill out. Typically the subject IS the topic lead.

#2, Reply's too the bottom please? I liked the old forum were I can just go too the bottom to read the new messages in the thread. Now I need to go though the stinkin thread back and forth to find the new messages. Im so used too replying to the top topic and having it at the bottom, not at the top?

Anyone else with suggestions? Lets dial this bad boy in!

At last I tested, there was no way to jump to a specific page from the main thread lists. This is crucial with some of the huge padlock threads we're going to see soon. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But please consider page listings instead of thread subtitles on the main forum pages.

EDIT: I also discovered while trying to edit an old post that editing is impossible after 30 minutes has elapsed. Some folks ain't gonna like that!
