It’s not laziness at all. It’s how the internet works. A huge component of good web design is to make everything as accessible as possible, as fast as possible. This forum is not as accessible as the last. The website as a whole is, but the forum part isn’t. With the topic list view, you can see every new reply to every thread without clicking anywhere else. I’m sure some people don’t mind the category view, but that’s why the last forum had a choice of either.
I thought they would have the good old basics by now. Being able to directly reply, comments showing up, being able to post videos and photos without a hassle, being able to create a clean looking thread etc. I’m getting pretty sick of this forum. A lot of the members from TRTN haven’t been posting. No doubt the forum has lost traffic.
