Right, we didn't want to remove them, because a lot of those RPGs represent a huge amount of time and energy from our members. But at the same time we wanted to showcase the newer RPGs and let people really enjoy them- it felt like the activity there had been tapering off a bit.
I can't say I'm a fan so far. I preferred having the general stuff right at the top.
The reorganization into categories means that you can minimize the other sections and that should push the General Discussion section higher. Or at least, it *should* work that way
The idea is that this can let you keep your area of interest expanded and move other less-interesting-to-you sections out of sight.
