DW Home page

Whats happened to the Home page?

I know we started to have the little info thread from one of the sponsors.

But how come no current threads on the home page?

I know click on new posts but you then get pages to trawl through.

I like been able to go on home page see latest talk points may have time to dip in a couple and jump back off but if i have longer i will go through home page and then click latest posts.

Or a specific section.

Hope its just a glitch as the Home page is the World wide way into DW and if no threads on the front page from the regular forum members rather than sponsors i think the forum would be loosing out on reaching new members.

Is it feasible to have a section for just this type of thing issues with the site or is that likely to over whelm the mods with questions that are not really relevant?

I see them now on the right not as well laid out as before feel personally that such a simple move to the side has diminished the front page.

I know its new and as such can grate but it just does not feel or look right to me.

It seamed to have set to not showing on the right even but a click of the drop down arrow sorted that.

Not liking it at all, imagine ill simply use the new posts the side bar layout on front page now just seams cluttered not having each thread laid out in one straight band across the screen but piled up in a small box on the right.

Probably just me so used to the traditional layout we had.

No cant get on with it on the right at all, its a pain for me physically...

The recent threads are now squashed on the right had side occupying a smaller portion of the main page and making them pretty much unreadable. I just skip to new posts
