Wow....I just came back on G2G today and saw the whole OT section GONE :tazz:

I really liked the old layout....Easy and simple to get around....

Just wondering why you chose to do this? :)

Hey Danny! We are hoping to encourage a wider variety of topics, and get more of our members involved and interested. There are so many different types of things to discuss, and we wanted to be able to separate them out.

Why don't you like it, specifically? We've had sooo many compliments and positive feedback so far! Give it a chance and look around ok? :tazz:

Couldn't you just have OT with the rest as subforums?

Its just harder to navagate...Because I liked having all of the topics in one forum...Having it as subforums could solve some problems....

I'll take a look tho...

Subforums are horribly difficult to navigate for new users.

Off topic has gone from an unstructured jumble of topics that just didnt fit anywhere else, to actually having some structure. I dont see how this could possibly be a bad thing.

Go to your profile, then click "options" in the upper right hand corner. Then click on "View posts" or "view threads'. All your posts and topics are right there.

i think it makes more sense....instead of having to filter through "what animal would win in a wrestling match" to find the interesting topics...you just go to the coffee shop...or the tech place(whatever it's called)...and whatnot...it's easier to filter out the uselessness

The changes are new, to us too. Please bear with us as we try things out to see what we like. It may end up in subforums, or as it is now.
