When you open the board you see the topics listed and, to the right of the topic, a list of everyone who has responded to that topic.
If you hit the arrow next to the post, the post is expanded and you can read the post and all the replies. Or you can hit "expand all" and you can see all of the posts and all of the replies.
If you click on the name of the person who posted you go to their PatNet or Profile page.
The topics are listed in date order by the most recent posting on that topic. This way if a posting results in several replies it stays on the top of the list instead of getting pushed down.
It is different from the old system, but I think it is more flexible and actually easier to find information on who has replied.
