What is the "main page"? You mean the home page? That pages hasn't changed at all.

i mean http://www.mobileread.com/ in particular, but in general, i'm assuming a session state/cookie issue that changed more globally. i've seen this occur in other websites from time to time. never here though.

Let me start by saying I love MobileRead, I'm always telling people to visit here. The new forum structure makes it easy to find a forum and easier to search.

However, it makes it impossible to browse. I don't come by every day, and the ~7500 threads in the Sony forum (277 pages) are unmanageable. I used to like to browse the new posts on reader accessories and see if someone had found a cute new case. Now those are just part of an unending stream of threads. The top page is all threads with new comments today. Removing all the sub-forums (sub-fora?) makes it harder to see topical things without paging through screen after screen of new entries.

I like getting both Sony halves back together, but it was at a significant cost.

We understand where you are coming from. However, if you had looked at all the threads you will see that there were many threads on accessories and content and troubleshooting in the main thread... so you were missing those.

We can hope that people will start to use the prefixes for device specific topics. You can filter to show only threads with no prefix which are more likely to apply to all devices and be threads on accessories or content or the like.

Try filtering by using the options on the menu ... that should cut down the ones you need to look at as a routine ?

Just a lil FYI in the sony forum. When I try the 505 filter, I get zero results. It looks like the 505 threads did not get tagged.

It is possible _ with a lot of threads pre-change; little time to adjust accordingly ....

That's correct. Because the old section was 500/505... so there was no way to tag them correctly. Also, many of those threads apply to the new devices too.

If you want any pre-reorg threads tagged... just report them and we can add the tags.
