Well I have been on the "New Forum" for about 10 minutes. So far my take is, "it needs some fine tuning". It has a nice format although a little combersome to get into the actual postings. The time it takes to move between posts seems pretty long. Possibly due to all the information on a single page that needs to be re-written. Not sure hom much the emoticons slow things down but there seems to be an inordinate amount of them (Being an old Comp Science Major and a main framer to boot I think they may be a little overboard...) . The biggest thing that was a problem was the Search does not work. I posted a request for Beef Wellington today (so I know it should be found) and there is a long string from 12/25 or 12/26 but when I searched I just go nothing or an error. I tried to expand my list back to include 5 days but was not able to. Right now I think the Old Fourm is more functional.
