I didn't like it at first. The alerts are OK and I like the live updates. It's cool to see that there is a new reply to a thread while you are in it, it gives you a chance to read it and possibly change your reply. I agree that the navigation is somewhat confusing, just seemed easier to find what you were looking for in the previous version with the choice list on the top. Maybe move the search box to a more prominent spot, it gets lost where it is right now. There seem to be too many layers/redundancy currently, I would like to see it a little more stripped down. I'm unsure how to use the 'recent posts/new posts' thing, it's not real clear. I miss the user control panel, just seemed to be more intuitive than whats in place now. What I really don't care for is the social media aspect of it, I opted out of all that crap. I would also prefer to go back to PMs, conversations sound namby-pamby.
