I used to be able to click on "Hot Messages" and I got a list in order with the last post first. I really loved that feature and I did not have to worry about missing a post in the forums I was following. I guess that has been taken away from us. I can't figure out what "Hot Messages" brings up now. It's definitely not the list I am used to. After checking the latest messages I could always click on the latest threads and easily find the threads with the latest messages. I am very confused with this change.
I like the color coding. That makes it easier to figure out where the reply post belongs and who it is replying to.
