Missing when it was Recent Topics as opposed to Unread Topics... Doubt that could be configured as a user preference of some sort. I don't tend to go through ALL unread topics and I'm not sure who else does either.

I'm using Active topics link at the top of the page. http://i.imgur.com/xsVYVKV.png
Additionally there's New posts.

What of these is corresponding to "Recent Topics"?

I'm just upset the placement was changed, I'm not looking for alternatives. It's too different from what I'm used to and to me, it's placement doesn't make sense in between other parts...

Active Topics would be the one (guess I meant recent posts oh well).
It would probably help if the "Zandronum" board style had those tabs at the top; I'm not sure where that theme places them.

Zandronum board style is pretty broken anyway. The green one should be default.

Yes please revert it. I liked it better at the bottom.

I'll move it back if I get enough votes. I added a poll, so go vote people.

Why was it changed at all? There's no benefit to moving the section.

I like that it's at the top, I see what I came to see in the first place which is the most active topics.

I was splitting up the plugin a few more times for the extra sections, then I thought that nobody sees it on the bottom, especially since there are links to the Unread Posts page at the top, so I moved it. The plugin's default position is there anyway. It'll also disappear if you have no unread posts.

How about a compromise: put it both at the top and at the bottom? Then everybody is happy.
