This constant reordering of topics drives me mad! OK, it <b>is</b> feature that one can fast see what topics that is active.... But it's a pain to find the topic one was reading 8 houres ago....

Else... this forum is good. The topic -> flat discussion is as good as it gets without individualy remember what messages is read. Threded discussions just dont work well on the web.

Geting big chunks of the diskusion at a time also help greatly. The web latancy makes web forum wher You have to click for every message pretty useless.

The animated icons... they give me an impession of new post.... not an flamewar :-D

Personally, I like it. Since it reorders by date, it means that I can quickly glance at the top-most post to see what's the most recent. Other than that, all I need to do is scan for the Subject line of the discussion I'm interested in.

Isn't there a "watch this topic" button? If you are really interested in a discussion, it seems like the way to go.

Argh - I feel sure I saw it somewhere... Where did it go? :).
