    Default what ever happened with the old forums page style that had news and annoucments?

    and the recent post at the bottom of that? I liked that style much better then just a list of all the forum pages

    Default i agree

    the other style was easier to use also.

    Agreed. Every time the website goes down for maintenance, I expect the old design to come back or a totally new one. The old layout was much more pleasant to look at as well as easier to use. It may just be me, but it seems like I see a lot more duplicate threads than I used to.

    As it stands, I don't even look at the main page anymore. I load up the forums and tab out a couple of sections, like the dev tracker and new posts, for example, then I close the front page without reading any of it.

    I keep hoping they're still working on a re-vamped front page layout. It would be nice to go to the forums one morning and see something I'd like to look at, maybe a thumbnail of the screenshot of the week up top, followed by the latest announcements, etc. Here's hoping.

    On the outside, looking in


    Didn't it disappear around the same time as the security vulnerability was discovered? I'd guess they were related in some way.

    Turbine forums are not here to be helpful.

    The front page was supposedly a resource hog and they had intended to take it down and replace it with something better.

    Maybe when MyDDO gets out of BETA will have a new front page.
