    The new Main Forum Page Changes make things very disjointed. For instance, the mfg forums should be after the gear. The market place should with the travel related with the regional forums.

    In short, the new ordering makes little sense. Return the forum ordering with perhaps a few minor changes.

    At a minimum remove the Special Announcements forum. It has not been active for over seven years.

    Do many people look at that page? I just check New Posts, and seldom look on the main forum page. And almost never on the main Scubaboard page.

    The changes were done in an attempt to move the higher volume forums first for quicker access

    Makes sense, it's been changed.

    The Marketplace (Classifieds) is one of the most popular forums so I like it where it is now.
    In the previous order General Travel was under the Regionals as it is now. I inadvertently pushed them too far down. - they've been moved back up above the less active groups

    Thamks for pointing out the lack of participation in the Special Announcements forum. It's been Archived . I hope to do that across te board as I find the time.

    We appreciate your interest

    I do the exact same. Look under New Posts and go down the list from there. Every once in a great while I head over the the Sidemount section but only when nothing under New Posts grabs my attention.

    FWIW the main page I look at is this page https://www.scubaboard.com/community as there are particular forums I regularly read other not so much.

    The recent addendum helps the flow. I'll work with them for now.
