I think they are talking about the Category View now being the default.
Don't freak out. You can simply change the setting at the top of your page like you always could. This sort of change is likely a direct result of those who insisted on posting non shooting items in the Shooting Section and then saying "what's the difference".
A few weeks ago, I switched to the Category View on this site. It made my enjoyment of the site much better. Now I don't have to wade through thread after thread of stuff that I have no interest in to find the few that do interest me.
Go to change passwords/settings.....click "no" on the enable category view and make sure the four display view buttons are clicked "yes" at the bottom. That should bring back the old format. At least it did on my computer.
