I’m really unhappy with the new forums.
When I go to the forum, I get a page “Today” with a long list of posts about OmniFocus. I don’t use OF, I’m not interested in OF, I’m never going to use OF. So I have to click a button before I can see if there are any posts on the forums for OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner or OmniWeb. Why can’t the new OmniGroup forum open at the “Categories” page, or give me a preference to open it on that page — as the old forum did? I could then quickly see if there are any posts I might want to read.
And why isn’t there an obvious button to click to mark the forums as read? I want to read the threads that interest me, then just click a button to mark all the rest as read so they fade into the background, as was possible with the old forums.
Finally, I can’t say I like the use of colour for the different categories as I find the colours too brash, but I do know people who rely on colour more than text who may like them. But do they have to be that garish?
I’ll continue trying, but I’m losing interest in a forum I’ve have checked every day since it was first set up.
