You also removed the Recent Threads box that once was on the front page. Sachverell, can you please provide us with a reasonable explanation for this? The View New Content page doesn't really do the same thing.

Add a "Switch back to old look because the new look is an epic fail and I hate it" button and I'll be happy.

I like it, it'll take some getting used to though. It's a little bit laggy though.

Also, I have a bug!
When I view my comments on my profile page, it looks like I posted all of them, when other people did.

I like the new aesthetic, haven't done enough here to judge the actual features. Everythig seems solid though.

Yes, but [font=verdana, geneva, sans-serif][size=7]WHY THE NEED FOR ALL THE INTERFACE CHANGES? [font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][size=4]I like the new post writing doobly, but other than that, it's hard to get used to.  I liked it when I knew the forums like the google homepage.[/size][/font][/size][/font]

Whoops double post. I'm still getting used to this. I like the useless "Edit and report buttons are faded and near impossible to see unless you are looking for them." Very nifty feature.

"Active Topics" now serves the purpose of the old "Recent Threads" vertical.  :)

I'm confused on how to use everything now.

The Active Topic block is NOT THE SAME! The previous Recent Topics block showed new topics that were just posted! That's what I liked about it! I don't want to see every little post that has been made in a 16k-post thread! I want to see new topics, like the old block. It was easier to see who needed help, which was why I lurked on it the most.

I don't mean to sound desperate or anything. I jsut reaaaally miss that thing... :C

Yes, but all I can get is a mix of new posts and posts with hundreds of replies already. Would it be possible to add a option for the View New Content window that would show the most recently posted threads without any other filters in the future? :D

That isn't out of the question.  We can look into it.  :)

Ok, if anything, you can keep the Active Topic block. At least make the new 'View New Content' thing have new [b]threads[/b] instead of new [b]posts[/b].
