Seems all pretty straight forward to me getting to what I'm interested in on the site.
As others have said, the Quick Links tab shows you whats new if you are a regular and if you want to search for something from the past a little bit more effort is required.
Pretty much the same as other forums where I lurk in the shadows. Two other forums that have a Quick Link tab also pull down a menu of - Active Topics, Unanswered Posts etc.
Some however do have those buttons as permanent items on the start screen, maybe that's a bit easier.
A place to post your feedback and thoughts on how this site should evolve or issues your having with it.
