    Fantastic work @Slyk!! This is a perfect 2.0/3.0 hybrid homepage like I was hoping for! You executed it fantastically. It's slick, clean, and best of all easy-to-use and organized! Thank you! Looks and functions great on both desktop and mobile from what I've seen! I think the new look of the tags is great too by the way! Can't believe you were able to pull all of this off so quickly.

    I think the "next to do" list looks great. As far as the desktop view of the featured threads being the click-to-grab carousal, you already know I wasn't a fan of that. However I always thought the squared photos that were introduced on 3.0 (and currently still present) gives it a sharp eye-catching look. Maybe just limiting the number of "featured" threads to three would be a possible solution? Again, the concept of being featured should be a limited number. If we have 10 "featured" threads, it kinda loses the effect of being important/noteworthy. Rather being a click-to-grab concept, it's just the three squared images that can be clicked upon. I'd assume it wouldn't take much work to do that as the three images already fit there, and then you don't have to completely redesign for the list view.

    still need more visibility for newly made threads w/o going directly to their respective sxn, besides that, not much to complain.

    @Slyk one thing ive been thinking about - maybe tell me if this is dumb - but we know the cliche superstars drive traffic: kanye, eminem, etc. and when you want to discuss new artists, and up and comers with buzz, its hard to gain traction unless its a random Hip Hop thread or whatever. what if on the Main Page, like next to Eminem or Drake sxn, you had a Regional section: the south, west coast, midwest, NYC etc. rap is so regional, maybe thats a way to highlight discussions around new sounds, songs that can compete with the mega stars, pop dudes

    Ah yep. @ChadCunt noticed this as well...unless there’s at least 1 reply in the thread, it’s not showing on the feed for some reason. Def an issue. Gotta look into it. :emoji_thumbsup:

    Agreed. I think you are nailing the balancing act of including 2.0 feature requests with the newer 3.0 layout.

    Side note, I love that when I click a thread it brings me to where I left off reading. Not sure when this change occurred but thanks for implementing it!

    Edit: Nevermind. Looks like clicking on threads still brings you to the first page. I must have been mistaken.

    latest posts feed takes you to first unread in the thread. sxn view just takes you to the thread... ima look to see if i can get them consistent.

    just poked around a bit more... the sxn view takes you to the last post in the thread. not sure if i'm going to be able to remedy this one tbh. to be fair: this is how it had always worked in the 2.0/1.0 days...this is an out of the box implementation piece

    this was the one trade-off.. i think that's gonna be a dead option at this point. i could probably look into adding a "new/unread posts" thing in the avatar dropdown menu like we had back in the day??? tbd
