Traditional Forum View vs New Feed View

BGA

I just released the new user feed and I'm wondering if you prefer the look and layout of that over the forum list I made.

Forum Link and User Feed Link

I like how I can quickly see all the information of forum posts and just jump into the conversation of something that looks interesting, but the feed is more entertaining to scroll through and I might discover something I wouldn't have clicked on before because of a cool visual.

Which do you prefer?

I like them both. I see myself checking out my feed first then popping over to the forum link and the new posts.

Which display style do you prefer?

Probably the forum since its what I grew up with online. I often open things in a new window (tab) by default and pull it to my reading monitor so a preview don't do much for me since I'm skimming the titles. The images on the feed are a nice touch though.

Largely prefer the user feed link. It is easier to read and more pleasant to look at/scroll through. I think in terms of staying on this site and enjoying the content, I'd go with User Feed Link. However, I browse for content quicker in the Forum link.

I really like the look of the feed as well. I'm looking at using that view for the front page rather than the forum preview that's currently at the top. It's a lot more interesting to look at.

I prefer traditional...easier to skim through.
