For me, there is no best layout, because
- I want to see the full geek image
- I want to have my quickbar open all the time

PS: Can you tell my, why you are using the layout you are using?

I had no clue different layouts even existed! After going to the link (Thanks, Andrew!), realized that I was using "New Menus" by default. But, I very much like the look of "BETA - Unsupported" -- except that the ads now overlap important things like forum lists. So, back to the default for me.

I like the ads, actually -- I've ordered a number of things after noticing them in an ad on BGG (and then researching them here too). Incidentally, that also supports BGG.

I had no idea that there were different layouts. So, now that I know, I like the newest (unsupported) version except that there is no way to edit my Front Page now.

I like the promo ads too. And while I am a supporter and block most ads, I like using the promo ads at the top to also support BGG.

In the unsupported layout... under "My Geek > Account" one of the options is to "customize Front Page"



I've been using the Unsupported layout since it first became available... I love the clean, crisp look, with the menu taking up just 2 lines of text at the top... and the Search box on the left with the quickbar and recently viewed. I have supporter's adblock so none of the problems with adverts.... the only problem I have is with the quickbar, which takes an extra click to open, and obscures some of the main window.


Took this a while ago, but this is how I see the BGG frontpage:
