First poll regarding the front page forum. It's currently "buried" down at the bottom here in Town Hall Meeting - should it be moved to the very top of the forums listing?

Yes.

I guess that depends on the image we're trying to present. If we're trying to be the main page first with the forums as peripheral, then moving it to the top would be the thing to do.

I really don't care one way or the other.

We are going to rival the Keith in a Survivor Series style: Wordpress site vs Wordpress site match up.

Who are our 5 and who are his?!

Speaking of which we need a new Survivor game. COME ON.... I think it would be fantastic.

Seriously, there are lots of places to get pics of guys with their shirts off.

There's no need to move this to the top. At least wait until this experiment warrants it. The other four main-pages haven't exactly had staying power.

Agreed, let's see what happens first. there's links from the articles to the forum anyway if people really wanted to comment on articles.

By moving it to the top though, it reminds people of when there are new articles. I think one of the biggest problems in these situations is people forget that theres a front page - because they've visited the forums so often, they get used to that rather than going to the main page. By listing it at the top, it's not only part of the forums but a focus point.

A link to the main page somewhere near the top plz. I don't give a shit where this bit is.

Personally, I don't even see what's on top. I just click directly on new posts and let it sort itself out.

I don't visit the front page as I have the forums bookmarked.

Scots argument has swayed me. Move it to the top & if it gets no love then move it back.

Id say move it to the top, people will pay more attention to it, even if its disrupting their flow

Bottom, have a link to the main page at the top and leave this here.

65% yes at this point. I'm going to move it to the top - at least for the time being, because with it being new people won't be in the habit of visiting it yet too.

Good decision. Once again I am right and 35% are wrong.

There's too many subforums. I now have to scroll down the page to read them all which is the gay considering how small the community is. It's like that saltyham site where they had more subforums than actual members.

Make some room and then we can rekindle your parent's basement and the fitness forum.

Consolidate sports?

Lets face it the ROTW sports forum is pretty useless

Osiris

I've been saying that for years.

Oh you said ROTW sports forum? Nevermind then.

Scotsman
11-09-2007, 01:42 PM
I think pretty much every sub-forum is used on a regular basis, except for the ROTW one, and a lot of the content in there isn't that great. I think moving the ROTW stuff to general would be best but I'll await others opinions.

What about the MLB forum, especially because its offseason?

Leave the ROTW Sports forum as is. I enjoy not having their kicky-hugball threads muck up the sports discussions.

Osiris

Yeah its good that way. Plus MLB has a very active offseason.

Look in there though - there really isn't that many threads, so general sports forum isn't going to be overrun with it. The ROTW Sports discussion is actually pretty bad at the moment - by putting the threads back into general and having "megathreads", it may help that discussion.

The kicky-hugball discussions go on in betting and gambling.

Kind of along the same lines, I don't see a link to the forums anywhere on the front page. Kind of defeats the purpose.

Scotsman

That's because the design of the front page hasn't been done yet. It's just a simple template I uploaded while we work out any bugs in the backend.

Look it's just better to keep us toddlers in our own separate corners, it saves us from throwing feces at each other.
