    I just logged in last night and then again today and it seems as though the home page has changed? I don't see featured threads anymore, just the thread posting page. Has anyone else noticed this? Or is it just me on this very inconvenient phone for this website?

    I noticed. Could it have something to do with what caused the recent outage?

    Yes, I'm thinking they abruptly changed things up here? It will take some getting used to, but a small thing really. I just wanted to see if others are experiencing the same thing.

    I was a little surprised not to see any mention of it, so people know. It could just be temporary of course, but still...

    Not to be nosey, but are you on an android? It also could be an android issue. My PC is on the fritz and I can't login to see if it's the same on there or not.

    It also surprised me that nobody else brought it up, that's what made me think that perhaps it was just me.

    Both laptop and Apple phone.

    It's definitely changed.

    As far as I can tell it seems almost as if the original homepage is just outright gone. I'm on PC.

    Could certainly be an error though. It seems like it'd be a very odd thing to just remove for no reason.

    I'm on PC, and it's the same for me.
    In my case, I didn't notice because I don't ever access the homepage - I have the main forum page bookmarked and I always go directly to that. I almost never visit the homepage.

    I'm seeing the same thing which did follow a crash we had a few days ago.
    I will have our IT look deeper into this matter ASAP.
    We will have this back in order soon.

    I noticed a difference on mobile and thought I was losing it lol. I didn't notice a difference on PC, but then again the first place I go is to my little red "alerts" box and then "New Posts" after that - I don't even really LOOK at the home page.

    I'm guessing it has something to do with Xenforo integration with Centmin Mod and "BamaStangGuy". Might be best to redirect your index files. Or are we supposed to have access to such things? :oops:

    Probably just a matter of still ironing out some kinks in the system.

    It was down on my end for a good while, I’m using an IPad if it makes a difference.

    I didn't realize it until after I voted but this was actually a poll about who noticed that it did change and I failed LOL

    Similar here, quite different on how it used to be, but not a huge deal.
