ATS is becoming very user unfriendly the way the layout keeps getting changed. Why do we have PST and BST most recent posts on ATS. We are on ATS, why do we have BTS and PTS most recent posts there and more importantly why are they both on top of ATS's most recent posts section, if we wanted to see BTS and PTS posts we would go to those boards. The main way the users that I know use this site is they just watch the recent posts section on the main page and keep refreshing. This has become more of a pain to do over the past couple months as it keeps getting pushed down the page put under pictures of GW, info on pod casting, PST recent posts and BTS recent posts.

My suggestion is put the ATS recent posts at the top of either of the the side columns and get rid of the useless stuff that is there now. We don't need to see a pic with someones meaningless comment in the form of some kind of ad, nor do we need to see a list of peoples blogs, not at the very top where it's the most valuable "real estate", imo much more important things could be placed there. It would be really nice to see that the actual posts here on ATS are viewed as the most important feature here. Put the ATS most recent posts section in the most valuable section right at the top of the column and make it list more like it did previously (use to be something like 15-20 and now its much smaller).

Yes I am aware of the "new posts" section but it's not the same. People like quick and easy and IMO a lot of the boards main page is wasted on useless stuff and could be re organized a lot better.

There is a simple reason for this:

PTS and BTS were not getting enough traffic or enough users seeing the posts BTS/PTS had to offer so you place them on the main window for more people to see.

It doesn't add more than .5 of a second [at worst] worth of loading time so it's not wasted and it gives those forums a chance, which they need.
