One thing that I was recently saying that I missed from the old forums was the sidebar that shows all the currently active topics. While not in sidebar form, I recently found the little "View active topics
" link that is a passable substitute for now. I know it's sitting right out there in plain sight, but if I missed it, I thought *maybe* someone else was silly like me and missed it at first also. I've updated my bookmarks to point to that page now to be my personal gateway page for the site.
