I know the change on the recent posts page is significant and very jarring for those who have become used to the "old way" that has generally been unchanged (with the exception of some colors and format tweaks) for nearly six years. But nothing on the page was arbitrary, and everything the result of some exhaustive research.

For the past four weeks, we were randomly giving the new recent posts page to guests... making sure that a specific guest always saw that version during their entire ATS session... and some received the previous version... about a 60/40 split (40% the new 2010 version). After running the analytics and compiling the results, on average, guests who were given the new page viewed more content (actual threads) on ATS than those who received the old version... by a factor of at least 2.4 pages. This tells us that, for users with no preconceived expectations about ATS navigation, they were able to find topics that interested them much easier.

The same was true for the new home page... a portion of guests received that page, and those that did viewed more forum pages than those who didn't... though that change isn't as dramatic for members.

Please give it some time... as this is not a simple matter of my personal preferences.

OMG - losing the "recent posts" page is a very big adjustment...

The "recent posts" button on the tool bar is taunting me with a blank page when I click on it, is it supposed to be that way?

I'm not sure where to go to get updates now... ATS real time?

I'm not getting anything but a blank page when clicking recent posts, just a blank page.. white.

In both IE 8 and Firefox, logged in and out, and after clearing everything and logging in again.

Any suggestions?

Shouldnt the focus be more on the members who actually post here rather than people who dont spend much time here?

Just a thought.

The "recent post " page looks like ... (enter a bad word here) ... And that was the most important page for me on ATS. Now it hurts my eyes to look at it . When did ATS become "Barbie visits conspiracy board " ? I mean I get it that You have to go commercial and mainstream to get more hits so that You can earn more from the ads but please at least give us an option to change the theme to something less aggressive or to the "classical" theme.

It's certainly not lost.

There may have been a brief time when the page delivered no content, and now that "version" is sitting in your browser cache.

Try refreshing the page... that should clear it.

The recent posts page works fine for me. With IE and Firefox. Even when I'm logged out

Ditto here.

Nothing on the recent posts page: /forum/today.php

NOTHING works to fix it either.

Not specifically saying its all bad, but some people react to contrasts differently. The 40 split might be explained there. By offering a light/dark version as before maybe you can even those out a tad.

Press this button to go all dark, this one for rainbow brite.

Hmm. Perhaps this is a passive-aggressive way to tell me to go away.


No recent posts, and "real time" pages 7 hours old.

No problem on every browser I can muster here on this end.

When you see a blank white page, can you do a "view source" and let me know if that is blank as well?
