I like the new ex community software. Sure, it takes some getting used to, but for me, it feels more inclusive than the old system.
In the previous environment, it felt like more of a place for insiders, people who had known each other for a long time. This new interface seems more open and modern, and I am more comfortable recommending it to friends and peers.
I have a lot to learn about how it works, but I'm looking forward in particular to seeing more "streams" of information so I can better pick and choose what works for me or seems interesting.
Good luck out there!
