    Default Do you check PD's Front Page on a regular basis?

    I just want to get a feel for the overall board as to whether or not they do check the Front Page.

    I myself do not as my bookmark goes straight into the forums.

    Do you check the Front Page for the articles?

    I like the front page...it's just a hard habit to break going there instead of going to the forums. For the new posters, I think it's a great thing. It introduces them to a few major topics and lets them get involved immediately.

    I wouldn't mind clicking a link off of an auto-post forum topic that takes you to the article page when there is something new. Use that auto-post as the discussion thread. I mentioned this earlier and I think its a good compromise both ways.

    If it can't be done....I'm not sure what I'd want done, but ultimately it's not my decision and I'll read/post here regardless.

    My bookmark is the forum's main page. It's by design; I'm not a fan of the front page.

    I go to the front page on occasion, and have posted links and the content of articles here a couple of times, but after going there a few times with nothing new in the "article" area, I generally just come here to the forum and forget to check the front page for a while again. There just is more activity and information here in the forum, which is why I still have my bookmark set for here.

    My homepage is the forum. Occasionally I stop by the front page, but not usually.

    I have the bookmark directly to the Pacers section of the forum also. I wish I did remember the front page more because I enjoy the content when I do remember to check. Maybe a large, bright icon under the Pacers logo or anywhere on the Pacers section would remind me.

    Also, I like the front page because it catalogues various articles that I will pull up for reference later. A bit of a forum library. There are a ton of older Tbird, Count, Peck and other poster works that I wish were retroactively fit into that page, so I wouldn't have to scour the forum search for them. Heheh. But the point is, it's easy to click a button for Previous Entry or w/e and find that article you're looking for.

    That's why the front page is awesome.

    I like the front page idea, but to me it needs to be more inviting. I would love to see images there, something to attract the eye. Maybe this isn't possible, but I think if it were more visual I would stay longer. Plus I come here mainly for the message board. You can get all you need to know from the wide variety of opinions and topics that can be found there.

    From the other thread:

    Agreed with others.

    This is the danger with using a front page on forums.

    I have seen it work with "comments" which lead to a subforum where the article has been posted, but the reason I came here was for the forum conversation. If I just wanted to read an article I would go to ESPN

    (no offense to Peck or anyone else)

    Maybe I am just not used to looking at the main page, but I would have missed his post had this thread not been here (and maybe that is our fault for not posting it as a thread, guess time will tell if that system works)

    I always go there first. Those are the articles I enjoy the most. They are usually well written and researched. I look for anything new and enlightening. Then I click the link to the Pacers board.

    Bookmarked to the front, click link to Pacers Board. I see the headlines for new material, but often pick it up in a related thread on the Pacers board. During the season I'll also hit up the Colts board.

    I like that you guys are trying to find what works, even if it may not be perfect yet.

    I have my page bookmarked to the front page, so I always at least glance at it before hitting the forums.

    Like many others, my bookmark is set to the Pacers forum page. I set it that way long ago, and have just left it as is.

    I like the stuff on the front page, but I never think to go there. I like that its autoposted in the main forum now. I also like that they are saved in an additional place for future reference/historical value.
