Ok, there have been a few days now with this new forum and I got to say, it was a bit scary and alien at first, but now I like it. I haven’t posted on that many forums so I cannot exactly compare it to other, recent forums (I used to post on a few Arcanum forums, to give a hint on how recent I can compare to).
It seems so much more interactive, maybe I was just bad at using the old forum, but now I get notifications when new posts show up in threads and that is neat. Quoting from other posts is easier if you intend to answer several posts in the same post.
I would not me opposed to a “Go to last post” button when you check a thread you haven’t been in after the switch of forums, but that can be accomplished by pulling the blue sidebar, so it would only be a small quality of life thing.
