A more accessible "Friends" section (in Home menu)
A new "Home" menu suggestion....

It would make the friends menu obvious to everyone...

Notice how large the friends section is, how I made the US server button larger, removed the friends menu icon, and put the news on the right with a link to read the full article on steam.

-----> When there is no promotion going on, the news section could take the space where the advertisement is. It could look something like this :

News could aslo take the whole space in right like this:

I think I prefer the short news version, but I'm fine with any of these.
The important part is the "Friends" section...

You probably like to have a tiny icon that's not even labelled "Friends" so that new players can be totally unaware that it exists.
And of course, 1 extra click to get to the goal is probably something you like as well.

Or is it moving the news to the right of the screen that is bothering you? Such a drastic change I know. Still being able to read the news AND having a useful option to reach your friends right away? What heresy! It needs to take as many steps as possible and options HAVE to be hidden.

Of course I'm being sarcastic, but how many of these 3 actually read the post?
Why bother holding a strawpoll if you're just going to get mad at people who disagree with you? That's so stupid.
Let's stay on topic, please.

I'm still waiting for a reasonable argument against this new UI suggestion.
Honestly, I just can't see what anyone would lose by having this new menu, and the gains in functionality are obvious (less clicks to access the friends section, very obvious because it's there by default...).

I removed the link for voting because of obvious trolling / personal attacks.
Having an opinion is not enough, you need to be able to back it up.

I welcome constructive criticism, feel free to say what you think of this UI suggestion, why you like it or dislike it, and what could be improved if the case may be.
