    Hi metguru,

    The ones of interest are:

    1. General Chit Chat
    2. Roll Call
    3. Addicts
    4. Cosmos
    5. Tech Humour

    I am not sure about some of the others as they get posted to so infrequently.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    I have to admit; After they took GCC and Tech Humor and all those off the front page view, I started going there a WHOLE lot less. I don't know if it's so much laziness, or if I just don't think about it enough to click on it or what, but I do know it's affected posts.

    Bringing everything back to the front page, or, better yet, bringing MOST of it back, and then having a configuration option where you can select extra stuff you'd like displayed on the front like we used to have (may still have it, but if we do, it sure doesn't work very well) would be a great idea I think.

    I think that apart from the ones I listed, all the others would go to the front page if someone posted to them. It wouldn't do any harm IMO as we have a months worth of posts on the front page and they have been inactive since before then.

    The selection option was definitely a hack and is not available in our version of vBulletin AFAIK. Given that we are not in danger of having the front page flooded, I think it has lost much of its usefulness, although I did like it back in the day.

    Actually..

    The cms being used allows the admin to select what is / what isn't displayed, there are various plugins available that will allow it to be per user selectable via there userCP.

    well, it's been a while
    but good to see the same stuff going on
    and for what it is worth
    GIVE the domain to Spec :P
    he would probably have a better idea of how to take us forward
    and I HAVE been absent recently
    but I DID put in the time over the years

    checking the new owners does not inspire confidence in AO's future as anything other than a sink hole in the wwweb
