I rarely announce these things in full before we implement them, but there's little harm in announcing this one and I want to make a point to those that are unhappy with the new design that we're taking steps to improve the experience for everyone.
One of the next new features for ggFTW is dynamic bookmarking. People have complained that the new side column is not useful for them so we're going to make it more useful. Forums and other things on the site will have a "bookmark" button. Clicking this on any forum will dynamically add that forum to your "bookmarks". These bookmarks will appear in the left column right above the "Top 10 Games" list.
Some have mentioned that they used the old left-side menu more. We took it away because we had no way to measure who actually used it. With this new bookmarking feature, you can build your own menu with exactly the links you need.
There we go. That's proper implementation with the new stuff you want to put in here. I think I remember someone saying they hate having to scroll down, but without that little left forum jump feature we had, we have to scroll even more now. :S
