    We now have 2 "consolidated" features.
    • Trending Topics. On the Forum main page. Shows threads with high activity (according to some algorithm).
    • What's New. On the second menu bar of many (most? all?) pages. Shows threads with most recent activity (although labelled New Threads).
    I can live with those (with clarification on the What's New page title).

    But should there not also be a feature which shows the most recently created threads? A real New Threads. These can sometimes be quite interesting and a bit of such publicity will keep good ones, in obscure or very busy areas, from falling off the index pages.

    Never fear - Randy's mentioned that there's several other features that they have purposefully not introduced to focus on technology testing and content development.

    Isn't it just a labelling issue? Change the label on the page that "What's New" opens to Newly Posted Topics? (Topics seems to be MP term instead of threads.)

    That's correct, but minor. That there is no New Threads consolidation is the main point here.

    Good idea, thanks. We will add it to the list of items to research.

    There is now a second list of thread on the forum main page underneath Trending Topics that is labeled "Newly Created Topics". Here you find a listing of the nine latest threads created across the forum.
