Apologies up front, but here are my observations.
First, I miss seeing the new threads in order of updating. In other words, when I’m done reading a message, I remember going to the next un-read thread by a simple click. Now we have to go back up to the top of the thread and select the forum and then the next thread. Now they are arranged by the order in which they were created rather than the order created by the newest message.
Second, When entering a thread, all new messages were highlighted in some way in EZ Board. I forget how it was done, but it was obvious that when we went to a thread in which messages had already been read, the new messages were identified in some way (bolded?). I’ve been off for about 12 hours today and there are a whole lot of new messages in old threads. The problem is that I have to read through old messages and struggle remember which ones I had read before engaging the new ones.
Third I use the RSS feed (not available on EZBoard as far as I know), but it just takes me to the top of each topic I select from the RSS drop down menu in my browser. If the topic has 4 pages, RSS only takes me to the top of the first page. I have to then go to the fourth page and then page down to the newest message.
Edited for clarification
