Hey, that’s partly my fault. We had two issues with the prior way and decided to change it:
- It was not clear what the “The New Site” category was about. Some people used it for community policy, which is not it’s purpose, as this will be decided once the site launched.
- Some people wished for a category overview rather than a question list on the front page.
I renamed “The New Site” to “Codidact Software Ideas”. I think just “Software Ideas” might be fine, but there is also a possibility of it going off-topic, even more so for “Software Development”. (Some people might think that they are our new site).
I’ll leave this for a while for feedback on my concerns and will act on it accordingly.
You can change back to the old homepage by going to your profile / preferences / Interface and there selecting “Recent” for the default homepage.
I’ll look into changing the category style from “block of color” back to “square before name”, but I’ll first have to ask who changed it for what reason.
