I just noticed the change in the layout of the forum view. I just wanted to put in my two cents...
Overall, I liked the way that the forum looked before. I didn't pay enough attention to it, but it felt like the thread view was more organized by having divisions in between the thread topic, the icons, and the other information. Maybe I'll just have to get used to it or something, but now I find it hard to tell what's going on, for some reason, as each thread doesn't feel distinct from the other.
I'm not knocking you or anything, just giving my opinion on things :)
