Is there some way to view a more basic form of the forum page?
For me, using either firefox OR chrome, the new forum page uses 40-80% CPU
all the time.
(So if I try to use any other program the system then hangs.
It is a bit like the IAAF diamond league page used to be before they
I note that most web pages use about 1-2% CPU.)
I hadn’t noticed the CPU issue but it’s the same on my Mac using Chrome. I assume it’s all the scrolling and changing that goes on – all of which is flash but unnecessary. I’m broadly happy with the layout and after all AW is a commercial operation so we have to accept there will be ads, but this should be sorted.
Can we please at least get a ‘quote’ function. It’s so bloody basic.
If that is not possible could we please get an explanation for this (And numerous other problems that are still rife).
This forum may be relatively busy at the moment but it’s the middle of the season. It’s going to die of death the minute we don’t have to come here each da and few of us will return in the future having found other places to discuss the sport in the meantime.
P.S – Those emoticons are an abomination. This isn’t a Justin Bieber fan site.
loggin in is a real pain – after you log in you then get routed back to the main AW homepage.
the size of the quoted speech (several times larger than the actual message text) is absurd.
agree with the above that this place will surely shrivel up and die at the end of the season. i can imagine a single dedicated UK thread on the T&F would be a much better place to talk athlettics in the future.
signing in, choosing ‘current events’ ok I suppose
but then getting back to the ‘current events’ heading! It is lost, in small print, below 5 or 6 headings, AW, 11 headings, 6 more headings, ‘latest’, a cruise liner pic or shoes or stopwatch or other ad, and is above ‘LAST TOPIC looked at, ‘this topic contains …’, ‘viewing …, ‘author …
Please, perhaps can things be simplified to save eye strain and time-using searching.
Great Run bought AW recently and said in their press release that they were intending to develop the digital side of the magazine. Perhaps they could go so far as to improve this ridiculously inadequate forum. Perhaps we should all bombard them with tweets and emails on this subject.
