So far the new format isn't too bad. However there is one thing that really bother me and that is each page being 50 posts long. I wish there was a way to change how many are on a page. Even with the ability to select "newest post" it is still too awkward/cumbersome to view threads. There are times where I like to go back and reread what someone has written or to view a picture again that came up in conversation. It is much easier to be able to select page 3 and only have to scroll down a couple of posts. At least for me I find the 10 to 15 posts per page (no more than 20) to be ideal. Others may like this but for me it is too cumbersome/PItA and has negatively affected my experience on the site.
