cheers solong.

i dont like to have to open all those chapers in the board index, it takes more time
also u can add topics to your browsers favorites and/or have a notify by mail when a reply is posted to a topic

It doesn't move so fast, click thru 3 pages & you've seen 3-4 days of rotated posts. You can always search for stuff too. Only the main road section too... training - no one trains here, that moves pages but once a week.

No more chapters pls! Messy!

Agreed, I think the forums are as sectioned-off as they need to be. It's not hard to click through a couple pages of posts, and it's very easy to find threads you've posted in. I vote to keep it the way it is, which I think works great.

you can always subscribe to a topic or bookmark it if you want to come back and find it.

sub chapters are too cumbersome

People don't like change that confirms it.
Still a pain to navigate through the forum.

sure if you have been here for a while you can keep track of topics but when you are new....there could be a lot of pages to go through.

Look, it's not that people here don't like change. We just don't like THIS change. Consensus speaks.

Ok guys. I am locking this one. No value-added.

The mods have clarified that WW will not be moving to add a number of sub-chapters (especially now that we have added the weight section).

Bringing this issue up again and again will not change this. I am looking at you jackattack.

jackattack, other users and mods have helpfully suggested to you little 'tricks' you can use to follow the threads you are interested in more easily. Try them out.
Road bike: Cervelo R3, Campagnolo Chorus/Record mix...
Supercommuter: Jamis Renegade...pastatrails.blogspot.com
And you can call me Macktastik Honey Pete Kicks, thank you.
