Anybody know how to get the form display similar to that from the old forums? In particular, I want to be able to view the first few lines of a discussion and I want to be able to readily see which threads have had new content added since I last looked.

Doc@Duke , click your image icon to get to your profile. In the right nav, click "Edit preferences" to customize the way discussions are threaded to your liking. I hope this helps.

I'll add some quick tip links and help to this Getting Started forum.
As for the join date -- Because we imported all of the data from our existing forums and then activated all of the accounts, the join date was set to June 23. It is an unforutnate side effect of the import process.
Note that each user has the ability to set the privacy settings on their user information. These settings also impact the information that appears in the user search. I encourage you to visit your profile (click on your name in the Welcome bar) and review the privacy settings.
I hope that helps and thanks for jumping in to use the forums and provide comments. These comments will help us focus our refinement tasks over the next couple of weeks.

I went there, but I couldn't figure out how to select specific forums. I could get it to show all of them, but that is a disorganized jumble. Like Patrick, I haven't found useful help.

Doc and Patrick, I'll find some additional documentation for you. I know that additional help will also be rolled out very soon. Just wanted to let you know I am checking on this for you and will get back with you shortly.

Doc and Patrick, Try this view.
I highly recommend Renee Harper's blog and recent blog post where you'll find help & updates over the next weeks: http://blogs.sas.com/supportnews/index.php?/archives/158-Updated-Discussion-Forums-Arrive-on-Thursda...
Also, I recommend checking out this "Getting Started" community over the next days: http://communities.sas.com/community/getting-started

Yes, the read tracking was helpful. It would also be useful to see it in the My Stuff --> Communities listing. I don't see it unless I go to the top entry in a forum.

It's clumsy (and I don't think that it works the way it is supposed to), at least in Firefox 4.0
Click on forum
Click on any subject
click on the word "discussions" in the breadcrumb list
and then the "mark all as read" will appear on the line above the first subject.
