Well as you may well have noticed, we have implemented a front-page to Mabimods.
I'm still testing many things with it, since we never used it before now. We're testing this for a week to see how people like it.

Frontpage gives guests to our site a taste of what's inside Mabimods, urging them to register and contribute.

This also gives you guys a reason to submit articles now!

Let me know if you guys have any suggestions on articles to be featured, or topics you'd like to see appear on the frontpage of Mabimods.  :D

I'm well-aware that's what the Online page is, I meant elaborate on why you'd want it on the front-page.

I'll look at the thread.

I honestly can't give you any reason to put it there.
However, I can't give you any reason NOT to just toss it in on the bottom like it is on the index page, Personally, I love it.

As for the other one I mentioned... Reasoning-  People don't seem to understand we have a search bar!  His thread is like a rundown of all the things we have here, people would want to use.

Just saying "It's stupid" doesn't help me. At least give me a few valid reasons you don't like it, apart from the fact you can't just click the Mabimods logo to go to the forum.

I have no problem with it and it looks great. People who don't like it can do what Marck said and hit the logo or the forum button at the top of the screen.

Just save this as your favorites, Google top visited, homepage ,etc link if you want to avoid the new page.

Personally I kinda like the idea. Give guests a taste of what we have and compel them to make an account with us.

Here are my reasons.

#1: It's cluttered and unprofessional, like someone just threw it together to put something to look at.
#2: It cuts off previews and you could just see what's new in the forum menus.

Solution-  Make it so only guests redirect here, and all logged in members end up at the forum index page?

1. That was a layout I chose to test for display of items featured.

2. There is a character limit to the preview, so anything after the character limit gets cut-off. If I put it at 1000 characters, we'll have a featured page that has 20 or more pages. You don't want that do you?

I agree with that. :o It does really look cluttered though. And I guess it just bothers me from one of my classes that we do web design in and they tell us not to make it cluttered and to make it appealing to the viewer = w =;

*cough* you did have it put at 1000 charachters...*cough* lol

I set it down to 300 I believe...so it took a little of the "cluttered" look away

It's set so everyone that actually logs in is redirected to the forums - but if you just go to "mabimods.net" you go directly to the frontpage. So I guess it's only useful if you log out every time.
