it was not the scrolling per say but the number of posts visible.
now you can only see 10 posts at the most.
when it scrolled there were at least 20 so the overview was broader and more likely to have something that interested you.
and that ment it was more likely you would visit the forum as a result.
Another vote to bring back the scrolling forums. This was a huge issue when it was removed after the last web site changes.
People like the scrolling forums thing and they are going to let you know about it.
This is not rocket science.
It doesn't need explaining, or reasoning, or analyzing, just put it back the way it was and everyone will be happy.
By the way, does anyone else have problems with the site being really, really, really slow?
Articles, forums, everything just seems to crawl sometimes requiring me to reload a page 4 or 5 times to get it all.
I am on cable, and have no problems with most other sites or links.
My speed always tests good, and downloads usually range between 768KB to 2.0mb per second depending on the time of day and place.
