Classic versus modern view

I've been an avid user and contributer at YT now for almost 20 years, and have used classic view almost exclusively. Sometimes I'm forced to use modern view so as to be able to look at a prior quote to put a question or comment in context.

With regards to the 871 SOS questions a few threads below, it would appear I'm the only one who is using classic view in that conversation, so I switched to modern view to get myself into the 21st century. Imagine my surprise when goat farmer defines a "small amount" on his band adjustment as 18 turns! I went back to classic view, where it says "18 turn" (that's 1 backwards slash 8).

What are most of you regulars here using nowadays, classic or modern view? Would you be annoyed if I stuck with classic?

I’ve not been around much, but go back far enough, Classic was the only option. I have been using my tractor and still enjoying/appreciating it. I switched to Modern view long ago. As stated by others, I got tired of scrolling down to find recent replies to older messages. The moving of active posts to the top cinched it for me.

Hard to believe it's been almost 10 years since I joined. I started out in classic view but I was already used to other boards that I frequented that worked more like the modern view does here so I switched. I do occasionally look at individual threads in classic view when something just doesn't make sense in modern view, just to see if there's something additional that's not showing up in modern view that might clarify things. I do agree that there should only be one or the other. My vote would be for modern, but I could live with classic if that was the only one.

I've only ever used Modern. I guess I'm just too young for Classic view. :)

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

By the way, if you have them email you when a new post is made

and you post from the different views, it will email you about your
own post made from the other view. Just a fun fact for the thread.

"haven't been able link email to this forum or any other forum."

On this forum, in modern view, I edited my profile and entered

it. Then there was a radio button to include it by default or not.

As I see it, the problem isn't with Classic view or Modern view.

The problem is trying to keep them both synced.

In my opinion, there should be only one view.

The posts are not the same on both views. Not even close.

Email open on one view may, or may not be, open on the other.

That depends on your settings on Modern or if you typed it in on Classic.

I will post from Classic and add my email if I know a poster is using Classic.

I use both views almost daily because I want to see ALL of a post.

It gets old, so unless I really want to know, I stick with one or the other.

If they choose to go with one or the other and I don't like that view,
too bad for me. I'll live with it or leave. Not likely that I'll leave, but
the Classic view here has been lost to most other forums for years.

Modern view that puts the latest post on top seems to be the norm

on all the other forums I visit. And they have no missing information.

I use the modern, because it's what all other sites I use, or been on use. But now that you say that the e-mails don't work, I know now why.

I use classic exclusively.
It was a bad day they added modern to this place.
By the way, the people here who I find to be most knowledgeable about these tractors happen to be those who use classic.

Classic for me, too. Rarely Modern. Just today, reading the long thread on lost mechanical skills, I went to modern and half the posts did not show up.

"I went to modern and half the posts did not show up."

Yep, this happens often. Especially if someone mentions a competitor.
Classic allows the post to be entered, often with a "link not allowed" statement.
But the conversion to modern view just ignores it entirely.
Once again, one or the other and I don't care which one.

This post from Classic view with my email open on that side just for fun. :)

I very seldom use Classic View. I use email on Modern View too. Not sure why Kirk thinks it's non-existent here. I like Modern View because responses fall in chronological order.

I only say that because people have said they tried to email me from the modern view and my email doesn't show up. WhenI tell them to go to classic view they don't have a problem.

I be using the classic view since I stated here but they are trying to make you use the modern view. No quotes on classic. You used to be able to search on classic but they did away with that. Now have to switch to modern if you need to search something. But you have to go to classic to email. No rhyme or reason. The order in with the post are different on modern view
I'll probably stay on classic until they do away with it. I find it's easier on my eyes to read for an old man like me

I use modern but have switched to traditional to read some older post to follow the thread better.

Use the view that best suits you.

Started with Classic, and will probably stay there as it's what I'm used to. Do check out Modern at times, but not often. Mostly when something can't be displayed on Classic, it's usually on Modern.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
