    Well...

    i think there's something in how the new version displays the forum on some of your browsers, for those who actually see the forum stretched try :

    with your browser active
    hold the ctrl button
    and press on + or - keys

    this will change the zoom of the page, and only that one, it will not affect other websites.

    let me know if it works ;)

    I never had much use for the sidebar, but a lot of other folks like it. Is there some way we can toggle full-screen or with sidebar? Especially on ST there were a few threads asking about it.

    Seems like the area on the right used to have a list of trending or recently posted in threads. Now it's blank like the screenshot @fendrguitplayr posted.
    Plus maybe some gifs above?

    IT displays fine on Firefox in Debian Linux. Everything seems to look crisper though, I ain't complaining.

    Yeah, that used to house a bunch of threads & whatnot. I wouldn't have noticed unless you said something.

    Probably disappeared during site closure?

    Yeah it would certainly load faster with fewer ads and gifs.
    I'm gonna guess that all that blank space is worth money though, and may soon be rented out to advertisers!

    I'm heading that way with my house near the ocean, all the extra space could be turned into income...

    I don’t see it on mandriva/Firefox but I’m also not complaining about the crispness.

    I miss the “home” button that shows the latest postings. I know “recent posts” has the same content but I’m just used to the “home” button.

    I used to just click the TDPRI logo at the top of the page to see recent posts. That's 99% of the way I read the forum. Now it lists all the forum categories. Boo, hiss... :)

    EDIT: I see there's a New Posts link a bit below that. Is that new? It could have been there forever - I never looked, because I had a method that worked fine. So, I can use that. Huh.
