Keep the Latest Forum Activity! I use it all the time, quite frankly.

I've always had it hidden. Makes the page too cluttered for me. I just use the box on the main page to see the latest activity.

That doesn't need to be removed. I use it all the time.

Probably should have mentioned this in my earlier post, but can we please get it to show all posts and not just those from certain sub-forums? I know why it's limited to certain sub-forums but surely it can be made an option in the user cp?

Yes, keep it. I use it a lot, but as others have said it would be nice if it could be improved.

I think it's great...much easier since it's at the top of all the pages

Keep it, I quite like it. However I will ask that you make it not make the page move down / jump when it loads the list. It's not really noticeable at home, but the much slower connection at work (1Mbit shared between 20 people AND with a remote exchange server), the connection is often saturated enough for their to be a noticeable lag between the page loading and the list populating, which moves the page down.

I have yet to see a working IPB 3.0 forum, but is this the sidebar you speak of?

Keep LFA, but change it so it auto takes you to the last reply of a topic.

The arrow button is way too small

Or at least let us have the option to which we prefer in the CP.

I actually like the LFA. I find it innovative and useful when seeing what the latest topics are. Keep it as it can be turned off if one doesn't care for it.

I use the latest forum activity section constantly to reply to other threads (a lot I would never have noticed without it). I'm not one to browse through every sub-forum, just a few of interest. The latest forum activity lets me see other sections I wouldn't normally go to.

I know that's there too, but how many people click that vs the actual topic name. Typically when you load any webpage, you look at the left hand side first.

I personally like it the way it is. What you can do is, have both versions and then when your release IPB3 for the public make another poll and see which people like better.

Describes my sentiments pretty closely. I'll read things in the LFA in sections I might normally visit or it will remind to check back in on certain topics. I couldn't imagine using the forum without it.
