 > I'm not sold on this, it feels overfilled and messy. I'd like the design
 team to look over it for UI/UX (the ticket is tagged for this already, but
 they're a team with limited time), keep also in mind all other open
 tickets that reference the display of the forums list in some manner, of
 which there are a few (#1952, #2695, #4117 and #4428 come to mind at
 > That's not to say the suggestions aren't welcome, only that I'd like it
 to go through the correct steps for what is a rather prominent page.

 Not sure which design you're referring to as there are 3 of them listed on
 this ticket. If you're referring to mine, this is how the majority of
 every other forum software displays their forum list. Sergey's is even
 closer to what all the others use as his show the counts.

 Even if it is overfilled and messy, this is what people come to expect
 when they look at a forum as that is what everybody else does as well.
 Shouldn't we tailor the experience to what people are used to instead of
 trying to re-invent the wheel and train them to learn something new?

 As far as needing the design team's input, what if the current 3 proposed
 solutions were submitted by designers?
