I like this idea!

GREAT JOB PBNATION!
We are big fans of the UWL. I've personally played in a bunch of them and had a great time.

We will sometimes have a video up front and center. There was one yesterday. However, the fun part about this layout is that things should change daily.

If you want to help, we could always use links to quality threads, videos and images to spotlight and put up on the homepage.

I think it was a ****ty move from a marketing standpoint.

BRB the content people are coming to Pbnation for is now one more click away.

PBnation used to be a paintball community that would discuss paintball news, now it is being re-branded as a paintball magazine/news source with a paintball community.

To anyone at CrowdGather reading this, I'd be interested in hearing how this affects your bounce rate.

On the bright side, by making all your users jump through one extra hoop, you increase your ad impressions significantly!

unfortunately that's not my job. See above RE: now pbnation is a community within a magazine/news styled home page/interface.

I've been back to this website probably 50 times since the change and every single time (except for the first) I've found the home page aggravating and redundant.

Edit: I think the home page is helpful for people that are new to the sport and need to be spoon fed material that matters and is relevant to paintball. In that way the change is great. Outside of that, however, it's just annoying.

So how is it decided that one sales thread versus another makes it to the homepage? When I logged in a couple of minutes ago, the following thread was on one of the tiles:

I am on a 15.6" screen, and the dot is just over a millimeter across, but the "button" (the area I can click on to activate link) is about 5mm across.

I hearing complaints from friends of mine, but the ones that are complaining tend to go to the same 2-3 forums everytime, whereas I tend to surf the entire site.

I'm loving the new homepage, since it grabs my attention for multiple different sub forums and pages I normally only click on by seeing an eye catching word on the right side of the thread listing.

I guess your feelings on the new homepage come down to how you use the site.

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.
