    We're trying out a new forum index organization to put the content first and have also expanded our video section. Let us know what you think!

    A bit long, but I like it. It makes more sense to me.

    too long for me ... I rarely like to scroll down so much to see stuff .. but then I rarely use the front page anyway, although it might be offputting for newcomers of a like mind

    The primary change was in the order. The length has not changed much.

    As someone who spends most of his working day hanging out on various photography and motorcycle forums... You should keep the main discussion forums at the top and obviously titled, and the more forums there are, the less activity they will attract.

    I know im a newb, but you did ask for opinions.

    Yeah, I think the discussions should be at the top. It just seems more logcal/natural to have the 'system' related topics first, then followed by the 'system capabilities'.

    Cheers

    Ray, I don't follow. Are you saying gear forums first then the image forums (the old way)?

    1. Site Info
    2. Other Discussions - Remove "Other Systems"
    3. Cameras
    4. Lenses and other gear - add "Other Systems"
    5. Photography
    6. Video
    7. Members forum
    8. S & S

    It seems to me that site info obviously should be first. Second, it appears that the open discussion seems very active. I think its a coin flip as to what comes next, photography/video or cameras and related gear? I think members only stuff and S&S should go last, especially S & S

    Yes. I think the first set of topics should be about the gear itself, followed by the image threads. Because there is so much happening with m4/3s, I'd guess that most people would be interested in what it offers in the first instance (newcomers as well as seasoned veterans). The photography section shows what people can do with the gear, but it's at a much more subjective level.

    Cheers

    I never go there! I always use the recent discussions list, either in the right margin or in the "Active" page. The only time I even think about browsing the forums is when starting a new thread.
