As you can see we have enabled a right hand column which currently shows a lits of recent discussions. We plan to keep adding useful content that's often hard to find in they labyrinths of forum based community sites. Our goal is to help expose some of these other features to encourage their use. For example showing recently posted photos to our photo gallery system (link), listing rallies and other events that our members might enjoy which can be posted in our calendar and once we have a classifieds section showing a list of items for sale.
We understand that some members will have a lower resolution screen and the side column will "look funny". If you do not like it, you can simply disable it by going to your User Control Panel (User CP) >> Edit Your Details and then scroll to the bottom and "Turn off Right Column". Here is a link to that page
if you want to turn this off now.
