Well, assuming the user experience improves, that's better for the site and the community in the long run.
Do you like the changes? Are you able to find what you are looking for faster and more efficiently now? Are you happier now than before?
If the answer to the questions above is "yes", I guess this is a good change.
The assumption is that, as a happier user, you'll be more likely to return to the site, spend your quality time on the site and consume more content, consume more pages and interact w/ other users.
Make sense? Hope so, let me know what you think.
Why are you asking, if you don't mind sharing?
What's your take on this? What impact would you be expecting? Do you think I'd be loosing ad revenues through this change? Or making more? How so?
I have checked total # of threads and # of posts, they are solid, though it is early to tell. I'd be waiting a week or 2 and then run a more granular analysis.
