someone else did buy it, hence the change.

Sort of. We always wanted a homepage, even under the old ownership. Ever since I started here, that was one of the things we wanted but never got done. I will say, of all the ideas we considered over the years, this is the one I liked the most.

I'm sorry but the latest 'update' to the homepage stinks. I understand and am okay with the fact you need ad's for revenue but when the ad's are TWO HUGE banners on both sides, it is just garish. The old homepage was simple and clean, I was fond of it but it was better than this atrocious nightmare that occupies the homepage currently.

Judging by your history I don't see what you've done to support this site. If your not going to support the site (ASM) , why get so fussy that they turn to ads? As long as I have a site to get in touch with friends and fun people to meet, I think I should be happy. That being said I bought the app, and an ASM multiple times.

Sorry if those were too much for you.

It will just be there for a week.

can you take anus "ANS "off the front page I understand you need advertisers but that front page is ridiculous . I cant even imagine how much they paid to have that plastered all over the home page of pbnation. Little overboard in my opinion...

I'll say it again - I'm an end user. It's not my place to choose/manage something pbnation implemented itself. That's the job of the staff, and right now my opinion is that the staff should update it more frequently.

When I first saw the homepage I thought, "wow this is annoying...it's just an extra click I have to make". However, a couple days in I thought the exposure of sometimes interesting but obscure threads was cool. However, now it's just repetitive, and I'm back to my original sentiment.

Edit: If you'd actually update with threads that users recommended and meant that post sincerely then, sure, I'll pm you some links of quality threads. If not, then see above.

100% sincere. I would love the help and will need the help to keep the home page fresh with the type of content you want to see there. Of course we use some of the suggested threads. I see a lot of PbN threads but not near all of the good ones. No one does. You can PM me links if you'd prefer that over posting.

We've already used several suggested threads from users and mods.

I liked the homepage initially. Really, really liked it. I've found it to be a little stale lately, but I haven't come across anything that I feel should be featured either. Kind of a lose-lose at the moment.

I dislike how clicking the Pbnation logo takes me back to the homepage though. My old habits are hard to break.

Haha, no worries on dropping the ball on finding things to feature. When you do see something good, let us know.

And yeah, it took me some time to train myself not to hit the logo too.

So I've now used the new layout just about everyday since it's been redone and have to say I like it. I think it's more user friendly and INVITING for newcomers to the sport. Personally I think that's more important than current users having to click elsewhere to get to the forum homepage and such.

So I couldn't get used to the logo going to the homepage, and maybe a few others are not either. If they want, I was looking for a userscript that could change the logo's behavior back to what it previously was. A nice guy wrote a script for me, and it can be downloaded here http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/168265 provided you have greasemonkey for Firefox or Chrome.

Mods, I understand this may not be what you want from the site, but I am just posting this for people that may want the old functionality back. Going to www.pbnation.com still takes me to the homepage, I just couldn't get used to not clicking the logo.

At first I hated it, but then realized it's for the greater good and less intimidating than just a forum.

Just don't change the forums and you're good in my book

Doesn't that by alienate most of our audience though (unless it is an event people would really travel for)?

Links to examples?

ReplyNews Ups


Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
