Re: Fixing up the front page and info pages?

Websites are almost generally dead in that they are either purely promotional, give support or push people elsewhere (FB/twitter nowadays).

The forum has always been disconnected from the site and had it's own domain at one point since the forum software was killing hosts back in the day. I have no info from the site owners regarding software/update... glen

Re: Fixing up the front page and info pages?

Any complaint about the info on the main site being far out of date are always valid. But that will have little to do with how many people are actively posting in the board.

Re: Fixing up the front page and info pages?

Okayyy I gotcha. Well...maybe my complaints are invalid anywho, because I'm mainly in the misc section lately and that's not even the intended purpose of this forum so mark my complaint null.

Re: Fixing up the front page and info pages?

Who posts in a forum has about nothing to do with what's on the front or info pages of the main site.

This site and every other goes thru periods of heavy and light activity. It's just the way it is. The sky is not falling so tell Chicken Little to stop running around with his head cut off trying to analyze everything.

I've always hated the redesigned front and info pages. I thought the OLD version was much better. But until they make it user updatable the information is not going to be updated.

Difference in visiting and contributing rich. Ya, I can run pretty fast, but my car is faster. This site is running, while every other forum is driving in a Ferrari.

Site contributors are paying for extra PM space and the vanity of having a contributors badge.

Yea, there's nobody visiting this place anymore.....

Ya I'm finished contributing at this point. The site is kept alive by a handful of us, it's pitiful. Jemsite needs updating as well as a new draw, but doubtfully will receive either.

Re: Fixing up the front page and info pages?

Its like a ghost town on here now , this place used to have such a great buzz.
Never seen such a successful site go down hill so quickly.

Re: Fixing up the front page and info pages?

The site has such little activity these days it doesn't seem the site's owners really care much about it anymore....

I've said something a few times.
And it fell on deaf ears!
