I hope with the new video mod videos will play better and its integration is less hassle.

the forum shows normally if you read an article already...not on the home though...but i you use the forums e.g. https://kiteforum.com/viewforum.php?f=1
The logo on the left of each topic tells you when new or already read.

For sure I am downsizing it!
It would be great to have an indication on the homepage to see if you read somethng or not. That's were most people go initially (also dont like the forum style as well, but thats personal).

another question:

I am thinking of making the list of the forums on the home as a drop down to save space.

What do you think?


This is what I mean:

I enjoy to see all new forum entries right under the flat list of subforums. It makes the page understandable on one glance and works great on my 4inch phone screen.
The one thing i would change about the page are the red blinking flexifoil ads! Too much too red!

Please, please, don't remove the Spots, Toby, I use them all the time to explore new places. Extremely valuable!

I want to double the list of all new forum entries. For that I need to save space from the forum list...a drop down works fine also on mobiles.
IMO it is more important to see more latest topics then the same forum names...which if you need are just a click away.

The Flexifoil ad below the topics will expire in a few days. :wink:

Dropdown would definitely be a better use of real estate.

The external links to other websites now open in a new tab.
As well as the links to the se.kiteforum.com section (eg videos, spots)
