Please do something guys. Posts and views are way down in the 3rd Gen section. It's such a shame to see. Bring back the old format.Please.

I must say that for a site of this size... the layout is terrible. Waaaay to many duplications. A topic that is relevant can be in (at least) 3 different places. Jump over the F150 forum - https://www.f150forum.com/ - which has 50x's (or more) the activity this site has and see how it's done. So much better.

Trying to find info you've once read is almost impossible without bookmarking every thread. I find this site exceptionally frustrating and confusing.

I have to agree. I spent a lot of time on the Stinger site before deciding on the Mazda, and found that forum to be better organized and with easier user friendly features.

Add my name to the list of folks who find this site confusing, scattered, and poorly organized.
I bought a new Mazda 6 last November, and was initially happy to find a forum dedicated to the 6.
Nowadays, I come here maybe once every two weeks, and then I don't stay very long.
I do however log in daily to another Mazda site for my car fix. It's not dedicated solely to the 6, but it is much easier to navigate and to search for things that I'm interested in, compared to this one.
I also frequent other sites (Nissan, Honda, among others) and they too are superior to this one. Sorry.

I believe this "subject " would have a lot more feedback if it wasn't in the "off topic" section. Like ALL forums it is the least viewed.

All the sections here are impossible to navigate. Even with the search button trying to find a post is difficult and searching through countless sub forums is just a waste of time.

This site is killing itself as it is extremely non user friendly. The very very few folks that are returning bear this out.

I have to agree, this isn't the most intuitive site to navigate. However, the search function works pretty well and honestly a lot of times I just google search this site for what I need and find that the most effective.

No matter how you shake it though, I firmly believe actual, honest-to-goodness web-based forums like this are infinitely more useful than groups on Facebook. I am a member of a Mazda 6 and CX-5 groups there and while it was kinda neat sharing pictures of my car and my wife's car again, those groups have become such a drag. Literally will have the same stupid questions about AA or Carplay in the top 10 posts in each group everyday. Why can't we just have another good ole' oil debate instead?
