It used to be VERY useful. Click "Recent Additions", scroll down to the first viewed link and work my way up to the top. Now I have to browse changes a page at a time. In the last 12 hours, there are something like 29 pages of additions. Also, the height of a single entry is now about double what it used to be. It's now VERY unfriendly. I'm not going to click on 29+ pages a day.

This is the only way to see everything that has changed. I look for replies to my posts, and posts from people so I can answer questions. Making this more difficult to access makes me want to help others less. This reduces BGG content/contributions.

I routinely used "Recent Additions" and usually added a filter of either "Games I Own" or "Games on my Wishlist".

I'm hoping there will an equivalent re-introduced.

I agree - "Recent Additions" section was my main way of browsing this site... I miss it already.

agreed - I started my own thread lamenting the loss of a single easily viewed page to see all game database changes...

I used Recent Additions religiously every morning. Now, I have no idea where to click. It seems like I have to click in about ten different places to get the same information, and even then I don't know if I've gotten the right stuff.

I have to agree here, Recent Additions was very useful. I hope some form of this will return.

For me it was the active game articles page where you could pick the time period (last 2 hours, last day, etc.) and get a list of all active threads for that period, sorted by game. Does anyone know whether there's still a way to see that?
