It's like the whole format has gone out of whack! I was crossing between tabs to see what the HELL is going on here! I mean, after the whole breach of security issue, I was thinking "OH FFS not something new!!"

Made some changes. All should be normalized now.

The firehose page now just shows the most recent 90 new threads, in an easier to follow horizontal format.


Don't like... if it wasn't broken, why fix it?

ETA - REALLY don't like.

Most likely cause the site has grown and they need to reformat?? Who knows. BUT I agree, DO NOT like. Now we have to "read" the updates, instead of scroll with our eyes? Don't like it at all!

And with the latest thread being only 7hours old on this 'new and improved' firehose......What about those who work 8 hours a day or more who relied on knowing the Firehose would provide them with at the latest 12-16hours of New Topics.....Much information to be gained will now go more unnoticed because only the last 7 hours is shown. I don't like it, the change is terrible IMHO


Hear Hear! I double that input. I preferred knowing that I could access the last 12 hours. A lot of threads will get lost for me this way.

Need to make the new headlines list longer then, as I used the firehose to get the full list.

now it's back to a small handful of topics spanning many hours, and no one uses the search feature as it is, so expect multitudes of duplicate threads as they can no longer peruse the list under the firehose and see things already posted.

I like that it's easier to scan left-right-left.


Everything else about it, so far.

I agree, now it's much better with actually more topics than the Firehose before the change and a lot easier to use without having to scroll up and down so much it's side to side then scroll up. Much easier now than earlier today that's for sure so glad to see that's been fixed

My problem with the new topics page seems different, It won't refresh at all. I still have the top post Alex Jones vs TYT posted 24 seconds ago when it has been at least 6 hrs. I can change pages or refresh manually but nothing changes. I cannot remember seeing that much time go by without a new topic. Even if it were to be that none were added, would the time of the posting not change? It might be nothing but since there is a discussion here I thought I would mention it.

I confirm also.
There is something going on with the live page.

I've noticed where it's redirecting to another page.

And the headlines at the top are terrible.


They probably did that to gain more page views, if you watch, you'll see that the page refreshes every 5mins or so (or even less). They probably did that because people used to stay on the live page as a "new tab" the entire day and they saw this as a possibility to increase page views and thus revenue from google adsense. The new headlines to the side of the ad is probably a new feature they added, I think it kind sucks too.

The "Real Time: New Topics" has been showing the same thing for at least an hour now. It REALLY sucks, I mainly just check the New Topic feed to see what new threads are being posted.

I exclusively use the "Ribbon" at the bottom of the page to access the Current Topics, but it's not even refreshing anymore. It's showed the same topics all day long and says they are only 30 minutes old, for example. Why change things that aren't broken? You just ruin the site doing that.

I completely agree. And it's really starting to get annoying... is anyone going to fix the ribbon or what? It's been like this for several days now... it's just freaking stupid.
