You and everybody else have a choice to view forums in old or any one of the new formats.
P.S. Those formats are not new, they were there for many years just general defaults have now been changed.
At the top of the new forum homepage, there is this text:
"This is the New Forum Home Page. Forum topics are ordered by the Date of the Last message posted within the thread, and messages are Expanded, below subject line. Choose Collapse from the forum menu to collapse messages and see just subject threads. New Home Page Old Home Page"
"New Home Page" is a clickable link.
"Old Home Page" is a clickable link.
If you click on the link "Old Home Page" you will get view you are used to, (collapsed threads, sorted by the date of the first thread message ) .
If you avoid using other views ("new home page", or "expand" or "collapse" or all messages by some user or all success stories or all educational stories), your browser will actually remember this choice as a last choice, and will present you with the same view every time you visit curezone.
Your browser will actually always remember the last choice, whatever the last choice was.
If the last choice was success stories, that is what you will get.
I hope this solves the problem of having a view you don't like.
If the last choice was not what you prefer, you can always click on the "Old Home Page" link again, and that new choice will overwrite the old choice, whatever view was the old choice.
I hope this helps.
You are in control, not me. Your last choice is what dictates what you get as a next view.
