This question is for someone involved with the actual set-up and maintenance of the boards. I am curious as to why the format was changed to narrow down the width of the actual posts, as well as the list of messages on each board. The space deleted from the posts is now dedicated to a place where one can subscribe to the newsletter. I find it more difficult to scan the list of topics, as what were once one-line subject titles are now wrapped around. I also miss the ability to tell from the subject lines and resulting threads what time they were posted. Now you actually have to open the thread to see the times. These are not things which will influence me not to peruse the boards, but I personally find it more work now than before.
