So I guess the answer is “what the hell are you people thinking”.
The utility of seeing the front page is seeing the advertising / rating / listing of new, worthy games. The alternative to my looking at the front page is my bookmarking the recent games page, which doesn’t get me playing new games and spending Kreds on new things.
This is an eventual net loss for you, Kongregate. Are you listening?
(Also, I really don’t understand what the utility of the “activity feed” is. If these people were, you know, ACTUAL friends rather than random names I’ve linked to for gaming purposes, yeah, maybe. But they aren’t. And I DON’T CARE. Let me turn it off.)
(And needing to multi-click through the interface is not an adequate replacement.)
