I second this. I liked the ability to combine both “latest news” and “Blender and CG discussions” so I could keep abreast of all the latest goodies making it into the program that I could then use for my “Blender Art,” after all. I don’t have any substantial objection to the reordering, other than it does a little alarm me that the main thing I come here for - those updates on what’s now possible - seem to be officially declared the [Edit: wait, no: second lowest, above this! Sorry!] lowest “priority of the community,” on the same level as “off-topic chat” - but, again, that doesn’t really matter at all, in the end.
Also, count me a little concerned, as a general rule, with any policy push to impose more positivity. In my experience, those almost always backfire if they’re anything less than positive-sum: “the beatings will continue until morale improves” and all that.
