Thumbs up "New Posts" More Like Active Topics

Ok, well the main grudge i have with the new forum is that we have lost the active topics and the new posts doesnt come close to comparing

However, if the subsections (all the general/technical/styling sections) were renamed with the car in the title (eg; Cinq/Sei Technical) then it would help alot, as you can scan through the new posts and see if a post has been made in a section relevant to you, this is assuming it would be very hard if not nigh impossible to replicate the old forums active topics page (sorted by sections)

hope this makes some sense to someone :$

Cheers,
Alex

Re: "New Posts" More Like Active Topics

I'll add my vote to it, would be a lot easier that way, with sub secitons named per specific car.

Re: "New Posts" More Like Active Topics

I prefer it as it is. It may make the quieter sections a bit more active.

Re: "New Posts" More Like Active Topics

Cool, no probs.

I realy like the new layout and i think Ben deserves a drink from everyone at skegie for the good job he does. The smilie thing was the only thing i had a prob with. Keep up the good work Ben

Same here Steve, one of the good things about 'New Posts' - at first I hate the removal of the updating Active Topics, but it has really grown on me. Hopefully a lot more people posting across the whole forum

Re: "New Posts" More Like Active Topics

The overall feel is that this is a much more professional forum. It will take a while to get used to it, but it's definitely an improvment!
