I am testing a compressed homepage version of the forum to make it load fast. Though it does not seem to be very user friendly. Your suggestions invited. :confused:

it is good idea but side-effects shud be taken in consideration.now i have to click on each top level forum to see if there is new post in sub-forums. so it infact increases clicks and probably wud increase load on server too instead of decreasing.plus page looks so small that it might give impression to new visitors that this forum doesnt have so many topics to discuss.

heh. i will try to think of a middle way to the whole thing. the original version was way too long. lot of scrolling.

yes even i found original version too long. but this small version is too tightly packed. may be someway it can be made spacious.
