Ok, I was going to post this in the admin thread. But I wanted to post it here so everyone could agree with me.
I really miss the old top 10 stats that was at the bottom of the homepage. I really liked the 10 most recent posts as well as the top 10 threads of all time. I know this involves a bit of a database hit but I believe it could be optimized either through caching or just by putting it on a "statistics" page by itself.
