It used to be...

...that threads with responses were immediately shuffled to the top, so that all I had to do was log on and, 'poof!' There were all of the threads of interest in order of "most recent response" first (Though when I actually clicked on the thread, everything was still in the (very logical to me) 'oldest first' package).

Now it seems that threads change color when there are responses, but they don't move to number one priority in the queue so to speak. Which means I would have to do the 'gasp!' look-through-the-threads-for-any-new-post thing or click at the top and look for all unmarked threads which gives me threads from areas other than road racing in which I have little/no interest.

So:
1) I am just whining and lazy
2) Does anyone else have this problem since the new update
3) Does anyone know how to fix it
4) Is anyone else annoyed or is it just me?

I want my old format back. Down with progress. Luddites to arms. To arms!

Or not. Just expressing my frustration that I don't know what all the cool kids are doing now.

Yes. You're not alone. I liked the old way better, probably because I was used to it...

It's buggy and for people whose responses don't include graphics or video, I'm seeing it as a step down. Slower, balkier, fishing for the last response, Etc. I'm going to reserve judgment for a little bit. Let's see if they can get it running smooth.

I think the technical term is 'suspend disbelief'.

I wish they upgraded infrastructure in this country as well. So much stuff is so backwards. I.e. cell phone tech, electric wires, etc.
