I don't like the new format at all. As a non-techy person, ease of use is important to me and this setup isn't intuitive. Also, way too much white background. Generally, I just don't like the layout for viewing or finding posts.
As someone else said earlier, it has curbed my visits to this forum. Kinda sad to see the numbers dropping off, although they were dropping even before the change. This certainly isn't the same place that I signed onto in 2003.
