I know one thing that I like about the new format...

Is it my imagination or have the number of posts from the Holy Trinity of boring topics (tipping, TJ, etiquette) gone down with the new format?
re: Bob Martinez
Considering the new software is easier to use (at least, according to those people who claimed the old software was too clunky and difficult to navigate), I doubt that's the explanation.
I think that it's because in the new format all the topics have the same amount of space, so if there is a "boring" topic it doesn't make as much of a visual impact as pulling up a board and seeing a whole page of nothing but posts on one topic. In other words, it's not so much that those topics are gone as that it's easier to ignore/overlook topics like that.
Yeah, but the threads revolving around "what's your favorite ____?" has increased and has spawned a deluge of replies. It's like substituting a headache for a stomach ache. At any rate, I advoided the holy trinity discussions as much as I could as I now avoid the "favorite" posts.
