New dropdown top bar sucks.

This is different than the other post in this form as I don't want to go back to the entire old redesign.

Hovering over community doesn't automatically bring up the list of forms.
Several forms are missing and it's annoying to have to add extra clicks to get there.
There is so much wasted space.
Something is wrong with the avatars and scaling. It's shrinks the width more than the height.
I'm guessing it's designed to me more mobile friendly (but IDK because I use basic html), but the desktop version still needs help.

Is there a way to just go back to the old header?

I second this. I have to click twice to get to popular now and it unnecessarily takes more pixels on my screen. Like why is the search bar so big?

Popular is one click away from within the "categories" drop down.

Thanks for reporting this. "Something is wrong with the avatars and scaling. It's shrinks the width more than the height." We will investigate.

Forums like Consumer Awareness are now 2 extra clicks and extra scrolling...

If I click the show last unread post, the last unread post is covered up by this new stupid bar...
Screenshot attached.

I am on a desktop, please offer an option to keep the header locked into the top of the page like the old way... it continuously gets in the way when you scroll up even a pixel. There's rarely a use for any of those header options when I am 20 posts deep in a thread or in a forum category .

EDIT: I found classic all the way at the bottom to fix this, though the redesign could infact benefit from the above suggestion

I don't mind the new banner, but the size is too big.
It should take less of the screen size.
I don't know if you are doing it by % of resolution, but it should be smaller.

New header sucks so hard, but I am glad they changed the header from stores to coupons which makes more sense now.

I was just about to start a thread about this and glad to see that I'm not the only one annoyed by the hover top bar. It's annoying as hell when trying to scroll through the page to look at deals. It's too damn big and takes up space unnecessarily. Get rid of it.

First visit to this forum ever IIRC, and came to complain about this very thing. Glad I'm not the only one. Drives me nuts how it keeps popping up and eating up 20% of my SD view just because I wanted to scroll up.

If you don't change it, please give us some sort of option in our profile or somewhere to let us choose to turn that off.
