It appears as if the trending page format is change for changes sake. I have opted out of this option.

So after 10 years or so I finally notice the User CP link. Still on top of my game.

I made an account just to tell you that this 'feature' is rubbish.

I'm glad that I now have the ability to disable it.

I have disabled this horror. I don't want to stay permanently logged in and it reverts to the horror when I log out. . If you want to have a kiddies page make the horror selectable. . I will now leave entirely for a couple of weeks and see if this alleged feature has trended into obscurity.

Thankfully I found this thread ! Disabled this useless new feature. I agree with everyone else remove this feature immediately. Looks like PPRuNe went back in time 15 years.

One of the main reasons I don't like it is because the algorithm that ranks the "top" posts doesn't fulfil my own needs.
Agree with cattletruck.

Using the KISS philosophy, make the old homepage the default with the "new format" homepage as an option !

Agreed ! Cheap and nasty looking!
Due to my restricted status on PPRuNe, it has virtualy eliminated my viewing of R+N. The page that got me hooked on PPRuNe all those years ago !!

Despite having 'opted out' I still get the new homepage if I don't log in. Why?

I wondered that but unless you log in it doesn't know who you are or what are your preferences. Still on top of my game!

Agreed here too, as an ex BA man, and private pilot.

This will alienate many. It's now a website teaming with fascinating information (much of it huge interest and some potentially life-saving) - which says "but we're not going to give you that without a fight..."

Come on, PPRuNe, you have built the world's foremost aviation site, so why ruin it now?

Pain in the ar*se having to log in every time I look at PPRuNe just to get rid of it. Or was that its purpose, making us log in every time we look at PPRuNe?

Opt in would be a much better option than opt out, please.

How can I go to the last post on each thread directly rather via opening the thread and clicking in the "first unread" button?
