I've been off ATS for a couple of weeks and signed in to all these changes.
Just want to say from a regular users's point of view I much preferred it as it was. It's a total maze trying to get onto each forum - say I want BREAKING NEWS, and click on that. It takes me first to a page where my eyes are bombarded a a page full of text links to things like old topics/hot topics/most recent topics etc before I can find the link just to get to the page I am used to seeing where all topics are listed in order of those most recently replied to.

I think it's far more complicated to navigate, I don't like the larger font on forum pages where the topics being discussed are listed and I think ATS looked better visually with its black backround which is now grey instead and I can't seem to find an option to *go dark*

Just my take , sorry it isn't positive

Just checked the My ATS page, and it looks like S.O. changed it back to its previous display. I have mixed feeling about that. Yes there is more information at a glance this way, but it doesn't fit the "theme" of the rest of the site now. Just an aesthetic issue, but still...

LOL, I guess we are never happy huh?

I removed my thank you post....you brought back the new MY ATS which I hate...thanks for listening.





edit on 14-9-2010 by Alpha Grey because: original post was thanking ATS for bringing back the original "MyATS" but that is gone and so is my compliments

Patience.

I was working on high-density display of activity in member's favorite forums as a separate companion page to MyATS, but stumbled onto a method to integrate the options into one page.

Stay tuned.

Very useful functionality was removed from the new page, so why would we have been happy about that?

The 'myats' page has always been most useful as a 'snapshot' of one's ATS activity ... I am hoping that SO can find a compromise which keeps the quantity of information historically available in a condensed manner whilst keeping with the new ATS design theme.

ETA: Which is exactly what he achieved! Thank you, it looks fantastic and lots of great new features.

The revised MyATS page is running, with new options (some of which have been part of various experiments long ago) for displaying threads in your subscribed forums:

Forum List: The "default" view showing each of your forums, in your defined priority, with the most-recently created five threads.

Active Topics: An alternate view showing the most-relied threads, over the past 48 hours and ranked by replies, from your favorite forums.

New Topics: Another alternate view (somewhat similar to default) showing all the new topics, over the past 48 hours and ranked by thread age, from your favorite forums.

Flagged Topics: A view of all the highest-flagged threads created in the past 48 hours in your favorite forums.


Each of the four view options can be defined as your default view, so that each time you hit the MyATS page, your preferred option is shown first.

Perhaps the member tools could also serve as a button to go directly to myATS instead just the drop down menu.
And a button to go to the 'last post by me' in the subscribed threads section surely would be a nice addition.

Before the latest update to My ATS, when clicking on a subscription thread we were getting it to pop up in a separate browser window or tab depending on browser, but now it opens in the existing one, is this something that is going to go forward this way or is it just something that will be adjusted?

I am only asking because I was used to the other way and accidentally closed out my browser because I was not used to it doing this.

Don't like the new "my ats" at all, its terrible. I prefer the older format that had everything nicely summarized and easier to read.


Is there an option to use the older view or are we stuck with the new ? Also there doesn't appear to be a view last post in the thread quick button as per before.

For me it automatically goes to the last post in the thread when I click on it.


Plus having four different ways now to display the My ATS forums is a pretty nice addition.

Yes, yes yes. The last poster is seen in a column to the right on MyATS, like before, which is good.

I can easily see how many threads I've killed, and know when it's time to be quiet.

I have Board Business & Questions at the top as one of my favoritives, the 2010 update thread is very active but it's not showing up in my favorites, the threads in there in fact are not active right now. There are currently five threads in there. It does show in my subscritptions.

The default forum-list view has this sub-text: "Recent five new threads in each of your favorite forums."

Also, the time-frame for showing activity in your favorite threads is specific to topics that have been created in the past 48 hours. Since this thread originated outside that window, it's not shown in the forum activity views.

Why? You can do a lot more with it now than we used to be able to.

I'd still like it if "forum list" would show the number of flags as well, but who the hell am I to complain anyway?
