    Not an aspect of the forum's design but something that I believe went awry during its revamps. Just noticing today (I'm slow I know) that my "Forum Post Count" had gotten reset, remember being well over 700 awhile back and now we are under a hundred... 99 to be exact as of this post. And no, our account has never been deleted then recreated, by me.

    Fwiw recently I have been coming back to the forums and finding that I'm no longer logged in. Did something change, or is CCleaner (aka Virus Installer) deleting some important cookies?

    For me one of the most important thing is that it is easy to scan what new stories have been published the last day or so. This is now hidden behind the most recent page. When I look at the top of the Windows Central start page I can only see the last 5 published stories and then I have to click on the most recent page to get any more. This have driven me to mostly read WC on the Android App. At least Android Central keeps the old chronological format.
    Please have at least the most resent 10-15 stories on the front page.

    Same here. Similar to what happened earlier this year with no option to log back in. Need to use Chrome to access these forums rather than my normal IE11.

    Dreadful, guys. the new design is not only cumbersome but also sluggish. That thing where you get similar articles below the one you opened is questionable, but having to expand comments is annoying too.

    I got a new terrible design today. Is there a way to turn off scrolling through the next article? I want the article to be a single page. Also comments don't show up automatically. When I click on view comments, my browser lags.

    Oh, also the whole "heart" thing is supposed to end up upvotes and downvotes? Because I get that, but in practice just kills another whole level of interaction. You can only say that you like something?

    I hate the article scrolling. I don't read every article so I don't need to see all articles at once. It makes it hard to determine when an article actually ends. If you happen to continue to scroll down to more articles it makes returning to the original a huge scrolling challenge. It requires extra effort to locate and read the comments. Mostly it is now a resource hog. Even with ads blocked. For kicks I turned off my ad blocker and the page(s) practically locked up. It wasn't enough to have a full page of ads loading. Now we have multiple pages of ads loading or refreshing multiple times for a single page viewing session.

    I ended up creating my own custom CSS. The readability is much better now. One thing I can't change is the article scrolling and lag when clicking view comments.

    When next article enlarges height of a page, scroll bar resizes. If you are scrolling the page with mouse - bang, you jump forward into unread territory ;)

    Also about comments: now that profile pictures in replies are the same size as in comments and there is no color difference, it's harder to find out when replies end.

    Good thing is that comments are now properly indented, not just 2 levels as it was for a long time...
