    The Front Page of VHLinks

    I'm just wondering...if we really dedicated time to doing something with the front of the main site and put up VH stories, etc. would you even really read it? I know people complain it's never updated, but frankly would anyone read it if it was? I think most people just go to the VHND for news. However, I am quite confident if I allowed a few people to post VH stories, we would destroy what they do...seriously...seeing how they sometimes take news from the board anyway.

    If you think it would be cool to start having that info here, then I will do it.

    Just kind of want feedback before I explore it. Because I would have to make a few changes to the front.

    Exactly, but if we want to do it, I know we can do a very nice job.

    My .02 cents is that it's pointless to have news on the front page. The minute there is any news worthwhile there will be a thread about it in Main with links to articles, video, or whatever. Don't waste your energy.


    Just throw a big ass version of the VH Links flying Eddie logo on the home page and call it a day.

    How many people actually start on the home page? If you get an "accurate" count, then maybe change it up a bit. I never see that page unless I am on a different computer and do a search for the links. Links to certain threads....I don't know.
    Just go for it!

    I don't think I've seen the front page in about 4 years.

    I'm not kidding.

    But, I've been here for ten. My perspective is not that of a newer member.

    I don't think many people visit it either, BUT people who search come through the home page for example. And it does get a lot of traffic because that's where obviously every link to the main site goes to.

    I think maybe if it were updated more than once every year, perhaps people would look at it. A lot of us have been here so long we're just jaded.

    Nah, a picture of OLO holding a raccoon by the scruff of its neck would be better!

    Clever updates would be cool...links to VH Main..not so much. Imagine if a new linker would click a link on the home page and then the thread was actually closed. Not good.
    Idea, maybe have someone post cool shit they've experienced personally from a VH concert or whatever and then post that on the front page. ??
    Just go for it!

    I vote for a bigger "Latest Forum Thread." Maybe put that section in the center of the page... I always look there first before going to my usual threads I view.
