This is so frustrating. I can't find any of the old discussions I was a part of. Why the need to get rid of the structured list of topics for bulleted posts?
It's like the 2020 BIMx app, it "reverted" to a less usable version.
Can someone please, please explain how to get to the old topics? Or just a list of topics in general?

Thank you for your quick reply @DGSketcher I've actually gone through the search processes with undesired results (meaning the post I'm searching for doesn't show up, or too many do), but I did see a lot of them. If we have to memorize search criteria every time we want to revisit a post, then that would be difficult to always do.
I also like perusing many topics that I didn't comment in, but that won't show up in a search of my activity. Many topics I simply followed.
What I would like is a streamlined list like Archicad-Talk had. I think everyone would like an interface that a standard forum has. A list of topics in categories and subcategories for logical and efficient navigation. What they've done is make it pretty, for marketing's-sake or website awards maybe? But it is severely handicapped.
I'm a founding member of the Archicad-Talk forum since its inception. I've seen it change and modify for the better over the years. I've never seen it regress so much.
Regarding your need to follow different topics. There are two ways to do this - both of them a bit awkward and hard to find in the functionality mess of the platform.
Bookmark. Is done through the post option menu and accessed through your profile.
Floating (pinning). Is done through the topic option menu and accessed at the respective forum page.
@Gordana Radonic I think what all of us would like to see is simple. Add an option, even at the end, to view ALL topics; as we could in the past, with a minimal single- or double-lined category and then topic listing for fast and efficient exploration and navigation around the forum. It worked great before. The options this new site offer are good too, but there was no reason to eliminate the old way, at least as an option. (See below)
