The format of TD has been the same since its inception. I don’t really like showing every thread and relegating the subforums to the side. Every other forum I’ve ever been part of has used the traditional layout wherein the user has to select the subforum they want to read.
If the forum does expand to include sections for other writing systems, or typography, or whatever may happen, I think a layout change would be inevitable to navigate the threads. If anyone has any insights, I’d love to hear it.
