    The forums may be slower loading for the next 24 hours as the site is currently re-indexing its database.

            Feeling a bit wary about the new forum, but I suppose in the long run I will get used to it.

                  Lets give it a chance - if as Webby says, it is being re-indexed at the moment, it will take a while to sort itself out.

                    I have just realized that my avatar does not show up when I posted my last reply to this forum, yet it does show up on my account home page. Could you please sort this out.

                    I have had to go to a avatar site and get a new avatar to solve this problem.

                      24hours? it's been 3 days. It's all screwed up.

                        Perhaps someone from Key Publishing would like to come on here and explain why they think this is an improvement.

                          I think we should give them a chance to get it sorted, rather than complaining. After all visiting this forum is not compulsory.

                            I'll add my vote to return to the old forum layout - this one is a total waste of space

                              The white space either side of the content is completely wasted. How can that be an improvement?

                                  How can we get to the active end of the thread with one click?

                                    I really don't like this new platform. However, Key host it for us at no charge to us, it's their bat and ball, and if they want to mess with it then that's their prerogative.

                                        Why is that members get so upset when a forum's format is changed? There were faults with the old format too, it is just that we became familiar with them.

                                        One for consideration by admin/programmers: With a broad view of aviation, and a regular site visitor I always use 'recent posts' to view the activity across all forums, selecting the threads I wish to visit across the whole range of forum interests. While 'latest activity' is still available with an abbreviated version of a post, I like to have not only the latest post at the end of the thread page, but also the ability to look back at the context to that latest post - especially on 'fast moving' threads.

                                        Also, although likely only a temporary 'glitch', when I log in (using the favourites bar) I now get the 'Search' page, not a site entry page. Solution could be in my hands to change the url on my favourites bar.
