New page vanishes after leaving

With new set as your homepage, the link vanishes after switching to a different page.
You can get back to new by clicking on the facepunch icon, or going to https://forum.facepunch.com/new

Clicking the Facepunch logo navigates you back to your homepage, which for you is the “New” tab. The website functions the same way when you navigate your browser to the “forum.facepunch.com” URL.

When you navigate away from your New tab/homepage to other tabs it vanishes because there’s no new content to look at. That’s my guess, makes sense to me.

They already have text on the page saying it’s empty, so why remove the icon all together? Especially since it’s set as a homepage. I get what they are attempting to do, but it just makes pages inconsistent and harder to navigate.
