Well here's one vote for putting it back like it was. My computer time is limited and most days I don't get into a quarter of the forums. Heck, sometimes I don't make it in for a couple days. I've also noticed that I spend most of my time in General Discussion or Legal and Political. For me it was plumb handy to have my most used forums at the top of the page.
I have the same problem with large stores. Just about the time you get used to where everything is at, they rearrange the place.
I'll get used to it, but it is irritating.
