I agree with this change, and I'd also agree with keeping the betting forum posts off the front page. Granted, many are betting forum, and it is the offseason, but right now I don't see a single thread about ISU athletics on the main forum page - which the vast majority of people are going to use - or on New Posts.
Before I didn't really care. I know people can skip over them yadda yadda yadda. But if you thought of it like a newspaper, that is prime real estate, at the top of the Forum page, or on the Forum page at all.
Not everyone visits ths site a lot. Perfectly good threads get pushed off on to the sub forums that people might be interested in but never see because they don't go visit each forum.
Anyway, that is my opinion.
what are we fighting about?
who wants to fight dammit!
I've decided to delay this decision to allow me to do some more research on how to do some of the things that many of you have requested. I've got a VBulletin book in the mail to me right now that I plan on reading over my vacation, which I leave for on the 14th. Hopefully then I can get it all squared away. The gaming board is safe on the front page for a few more weeks.
First thing I do when I visit a web site is to call the people there nerdy, because I'm too cool for the Internet.
I understand wanting more Cyclone stuff on the "Main Page" but currently it is off season so there isn't much going on.
Also as far as I understand it, the main page is just the most recently posted in threads or what has been popular for the day. So I routinely check the sub forums I like to see if I missed anything.
Chris, I hope the book helps and have a great vacation!
You are our Benevolent Dictator. You are great at listening, understanding, and taking everyone's perspective into consideration. However, at the end of the analysis, a decision has to be made and there is no one better suited to do what is best for CF than you. So far, your track record is really good and we all owe you a fortune for what you give us. I trust your judgment as our Benevolent Dictator.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Its Monday right? Mafia threads still look like they are on the main page.

Feel free to leave if 2 threads is going to bother you so much. :biglaugh:
I'm in the club, and I have to say that the standards must not be very high.
