Tom, to answer your questions I prefer the "new" bulletin board over the "old" (this one). Basically the new board allows me to see at a glance whether there is something new posted (although the light bulbs don't always work), and I like the breakdown of categories. I still come to the "old" board simply due to people still posting here, however, I still check the "new" board first. Also on the "new" board I like the fact that I'm registered with a password so that someone else can't claim to be me and possibly offer incorrect advice or offend someone. Hope this helps.
