When choosing which Forum to look at I always choose the "New Posts" function rather than go into "Male" or "Female" or "Just Starting Out" Forums, because the New Posts function lists new posts from every forum and I'm interested in posts from all of these groups. It also makes Basenotes seem more integrated IMO.
I can still do that because I looked for it. (It pops up as an option when you point to the Forums button, but it dissapears if you click the button). But I doubt if new members, or anyone who is not specifically looking, will find that function. I hope that doesn't mean that we will be more segregated with less sharing of views across the Forums.
Edit. Suggestion, Could we have it listed as a category of it's own under "Fragrance Discussion"? Something like "All new posts"?
