Too much going on, on the home page. Hard to scroll without it jumping. Remove some stuff from home page, so theres not so much.

People use that? I think it's super annoying. The front page does leverage patented "Yellow Dot" technology.

Ummmm. 2012 was actually a huge year for PbNation. We had 7.2 million unique users on the site. That's more different people on PbN than any other year ever except 2009.

We figure a lot of regular users will do that. It's why we left the forum index exactly the same. Heck, I do it on some forums too.

New homepage is terrible. Just because others are setting up similar homepages doesn't mean it's a GOOD change. And to think i liked starting at the homepage before...

Too much clicking.

Pro-tip: the less clicks, the better

I wish there was a shortcut to link subscribed threads to the homepage(instead of news nobody gives a **** about) so I don't have to go to "user CP" then click on the thread.

Just the main forums page, i guess. I could punch in pbnation.com, and a nice, clean forum would appear. Now, this cluttered, flashy mess appears instead, slapping my eyes with crap i don't want or need to see. I could edit my bookmark like everyone else but half the time i'm not using my own computer.

Yeah, its really one of those "to each his own" situations. For me its not really any different as the first thing I do every time go to pbn is I check my user CP for subscriped threads. So with both the new and old systems I still have an immediate first click, making the debate irrelevant for me.

But I get how that could/would be annoying.

it wouldnt be bad if they cut it in half and then used the adds to mix up the front page when you revisit the site that day or had the blocks change more often

After close to 14 fukl pages of comments, both for and against the
new layout it's be nice once in a while for those with negative
comments to also offer one or two negative suggestions as to how
the site might have made their new front page better.

Personally I see it somewhat like the front page on a newspaper. It
offers glimpes as to what's inside and if someone wants to skip it
they can click forum and go directly to the inside. If anything you
might look to add a box containing an index to the miost frequently
viewed areas, just like you find on the front page of a paper.

Sincerely,

Welcome to the internet.

We are changing something they love. Of course some people won't take it well. The knee-jerk reaction will be to hate it simply because it is change.

Now as people are settling in, hopefully we'll get some more ideas on how we can continue to improve it. And everyone else can learn to use bookmarks.

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.
