    Forum Layout Changes


    Beginning today, a Start Date column has been added to forum index pages, subscription folders, and the user control panel. Presumably, the change is to accommodate users who wish to sort by the topic creation date instead of the last post date.

    Using the Submission Review forum as an example, the start date has been duplicated (see below):

    Might I suggest the following modifications?

    • Delete the Start Date column at the far right
    • Remove the start date currently to the right of the user name
    • Place the start date below the user name
    • Edit the column headings as shown below

    These changes could preserve the multiple sort key functionality while eliminating unnecessary clutter.
