what's with the forum tools menu?

Apparently it was changed. It used to be a drop down menu which appeared immediately. Now, when clicked, it reloads the whole forum page. It is extremely annoying. I ctrl-click the multiple threads I'm interested in (to open each in a different tab) then go to the forum tools to mark the whole forum as read. It used to be instantaneous. Now I have to wait a couple of seconds for the page to reload and find the link in the bottom. Please consider changing that back. Thanks.

That parameter is only added if your browser has javascript disabled, or if the dropdown script is somehow being blocked. Try fixing that on your end, then try again.

Also, which skin are you currently using?

Oh noes! The modern skin has gotten a fresh header and the default skin has changed to red

There are THREE new posts links on each forum page: one in the search dropdown, one in the quicklinks menu, and one by the login area.

To switch back to green, use the quick style chooser at the bottom of the page, and also select it permanently in your usercp options.

The quicklinks menu is now by the login area, and the new posts link is also there.

I don't like the cameras/lenses menu. The camera button takes you to the camera reviews, but the lenses button shows a drop down that includes lenses AND cameras. Either separate them, duplicate them, or go with one menu for all reviews.

That duplication shouldn't be there. Will be fixed.

Quick Links has been moved to a more obscure location.
It's quite handy to have a little more prominent - perhaps with a slightly larger and bold font?
Someone didn't like it on the Tool bar?

With the introduction of the new layout, the quicklinks menu will become much more redundant and less useful.

I'll consider making it bold, but all people really use that menu for is finding new posts, which can be done from the search dropdown.

The reason I took it out of the navbar was so that I could make room for the marketplace and cameras buttons. As the site grows, I will be working hard to be brining you content in addition to just discussions, photos, and reviews.

I also use it for the My Activity portion of the menu - you know, my threads and participated threads. Those as well as the 'browse new posts' are my most clicked-on menu items.

Then the future home of that will likely be the search menu.
