I don't like it, but to be honest, I have never liked the ATS layout.
It's odd, but I like the colour selection, the menu bar and I have even come to appreciate the ribbon menu(only through necessity) though it's
absence from the 'live feed' is an annoying omission.
Even the ad's don't really bug me that much as they provide an income for the site owners and thus ensuring this 'repository of
cracks free thinkers' endures.
I think it is the main forum layout that bugs me the most.
To post a thread you need to play a sonnet with nothing but mouse clicks before invoking some nameless deity whilst spreading the ashes of a freshly
fried hard drive into the pool of a thousand and twenty four goldfish who are also singing the sonnet in time to your mouse clicks. When a rainbow
shoots out of your wireless modem.....you can post a thread.
The only other option is to try and navigate through the ATS pages and blindly stumble upon a new thread link.
As most of you already know......it's easier just to play the damn sonnet.
All jokes aside.....What logic puts the 'new thread' button in an existing thread?
With all the prompts for members to put a little thought into threads(and posts) before posting our drivel to the world......What logic puts the 'new
thread' button in the one place where only a hothead would use it?
Well, I should say, 'hotheads' and people like myself who now go straight to another thread of the right topic to use the 'new thread' button
because it is the easiest place to get to.
To the owners/mods......thanks for the great site.
