I don't think people actually care about a retro section. Or at least not right now when most everyone is going ga-ga over the next generation.
I mean, I haven't seen a single person mentioning that the legacy forums are missing or that they should be brought back over at the feedback board.
If somebody actually mentioned something about it, then most likely it got lost among the flood of complains about the new site format. However, looking at how many people here were whining about the loss of this board, I was expecting to see at least those people complaining about it. But so far nothing.
