Tell us about yourself!
Seems a quick fix would just to give an "all" option, so if we didn't want to filter by category, and just wanted to see, "all," it would be readily available to us. I like seeing everything being shown, not just featured, or a feed where i have to subscribe to every channel.
This only shows the recent that are attached to your "feed." To see all recents one would have to subscribe to everything, which is bothersome and clunky.
I logged on to write almost the exact same thing. The removal of the recent was annoying, because I don't want to have to follow and subscribe to 20328383 channels just to see the mix of everything I want to see. The to try and get to the community?! That was insane. There isn't just a link to it, and just being there. I had to search and dig until I found this one. It's not a good experience, is very clunky, and bad User Experience.
