Hey folks, thanks for the feedback.
We haven't taken away the articles that helped make what is today, they are all still available at and all the causes are still there, linked on the right hand side.
And you're 127% right, we couldn't have done what we have without the amazing community that has gathered here. The badges, the ability to thank other users for what they are doing, the ease of finding actions and information. It's all been integral to attracting some of the best community activists out there to , but we're far from done with adding everything back in which is why it's still a "Beta" release.
Unfortunately the old layout stopped us from implementing a lot of incredibly powerful tools and features to help you connect with other activists, users, organizations and ultimately with real social change. We have a long way to go yet to get to where we want to be, but believe me, when we get there, there will be no stopping this community and what it can do to really change the world.
I hope you stick around and help as grows to something even better!
In the mean time, any of you can always reach out to me directly at Justin@Change.org and we can chat about what made the old so amazing and how we can make sure we keep that and improve on it moving forward.
