New AO layout...grrrrrr

Well, we've had the new page layout for a few days now and I have to say I don't like it (Victor meldrew voice).

Why is the "Community Discussion" section so far down the page, when it's the most popular area? Surely it should be at the top?

Re: New AO layout...grrrrrr

I think the new layout is much more focussed.

If you were just passing through looking for some tech help, what would you want to see first? I think moving the tech help up means that its slightly more accessable to new users who can then explore the discussion lounges once they see that there is a staggering abount of info here, not just the banter that comes up on the home page.

Just my 2 cents

I don't know what you're on about but I'm still on AO Classic so maybe it hasn't affected me?

It's only in stage 1 of redevelopment. I would expect it to change again in the next month or two.

Re: New AO layout...grrrrrr

There's a new layout?

Where?

Maybe I haven't seen it because I browse the site using a bookmark on my links bar that looks up new posts.

Only comment is that you cannot tell which section the threads are from when replying.

Re: New AO layout...grrrrrr

I don't like it myself as I keep forgetting to check the Alfa discussion thread because it's so far down the page. That said, it probably makes more sense as a layout for newbies.

Yes I understand that is correct once youre are in the thread.

I am refering to the front page - EG in the community section there are 7 sub sections but only the last post is illustrated for a single thread not per sub section
