Very recently, as of
9/7/21, the forums have a new layout:
This new layout is not ideal. Previously, forum categories were listed on the right side of the screen, and underneath each category the latest 5-6 threads were displayed. This helped with thread exposure for topics other developers may care about when opening the forums. My primary source of thread discovery was often from the home page, by simply seeing threads listed under the categories.
This new layout removes this feature, making it harder to find topics I would be interested in / care about at a glance.
The old layout should be brought back, or, at the very least, the latest active threads feature should be brought back and displayed under each category like before.
