Is it possible to either divide up the Latest Posts into sections? The latest 10 or 15 results for the Official subforums, and the latest 25 or more for the By Category.
Or could we have a page that is just a feed of the latest posts for Official HubPages Announcements; Need Help? Ask here.; Knowledge Exchange; Report a Problem or Suggest a New Feature; The Hubber's Hangout.
I'd be bookmarking it as the first place I visited.
That might be a good idea-- if it means what I think you mean.
It used to be that when I went to forums, i immediatetly clicked latest posts, which is what we now have on the right side.
I think it is good to make that feature prominent, because sometime posts that don't get an immediate reply, are quickly buried in a category.
Either I did not understand, or I disagree. I actually like them all in one place, and if I am interested in a particular forum I can go there...
Personally, I like the new format. Before, I'd only visit Hubber's Hangout and miss interesting threads from other forums.
Well, then may be the second part of your proposal works better for everybody. I definitely don't mind having an extra aggregation page targeted on help aspects - as long as it does not replace the current forums page
I just check out the individual pages. Most of the time the newest posts and replies are in sections I don't care about. That or the topic is not something I have an interest in. It's so much easier to just click the different sections and see the newest posts in that section.
I don't even pay attention to the right side of the forum home page.
When I got to preview the new site layout, my biggest complaint was with the changes in the forums. I have no way of either highlighting the topics I'd really rather follow or eliminating the topics I'd prefer to avoid.
There's no way for an individual to separate what they consider the wheat from the chaff.

I completely missed the announcement about activating your eBay account. That doesn't affect me as an existing member, but it did mean I gave incorrect advice to a newbie (thankfully Sunforged set me right). ...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent...

There's been a lot of discussion of forum rules and policies recently, as well as criticism of the HubPages staff, so Paul and I agreed that a thread reiterating our position was in order.The rules are very clear:No...
