    Quick update.

    The old forums (pre-Feb 2012) allowed everyone to follow specific forums, which resulted in a more customized homepage and forum main page. Currently, we don't have that option with the new forums so it means the homepage displays threads from all over the forum.

    Unfortunately this was creating a lot of confusion (people posting in the wrong regional forums) so I altered the code to pull from the General and BeerAdvocate Talk groups only to help cut down on misposts.

    For the most recent posts: http://beeradvocate.com/community/find-new/threads ("What's New" in the forum sub-nav), and of course you can dig down into any of the forums to see a full list of posts and replies.

    We'll also continue to look at solutions now and with the site redesign.
