I liked the old homepage because you could discover new people through recent posts, images, videos, and forum posts.

I don't mind the new homepage but I do miss that part of the website.

That is why I came up with the suggestion to make an "Activity" page which would serve the purpose of showing the recent posts, images, videos, and forum posts.

If it's server load you are worried about, then yeah I could see where that would be troublesome, because it's not something people want cached
