What do you all think about the idea of making this a user customizable thing where you the user can choose what sub forums you want to watch on your home page?

I know I would really like this option to watch the the sub forums I choose such as my regional area, back country and instructors.

Weigh in on this and see if we cant get this option to fly...
+1 here.

administrator Its usually how I try to get it set up when we add a front page. I find most people just gravitate to the top banner.

I understand. Just a bit weird for me as far as the logo going to the forum index while the Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums taking me to the homepage.
Now that i realized i can use the logo - i'm fine - just not intuitive to me as i thought it would be the reverse.

I don't know if this was intended to get extra page views and resultant ad impressions but UX was compromised imo.

I found that I just use the home page as an interstitial landing page though I prefer to go directly to the list of forum topics. And per my comment above, I get thrown to the first page of multi-page threads by default. So I bookmarked directly to the Forums page (just need to get in the habit of avoiding that "Snowboarding Forum - Snowboarding Enthusiast Forums" link).
I agree here - that when you are in the forum itself - if you want to go back to the forum base page, the links at the top, ie:
Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums > Snowboarding Forum Message Board > News, Updates and Suggestions > new homepage

Should link the user to the:
Forum top (not the homepage) > Message board subforum > news, updates ..

That's not what it does now.
For the homepage, the very top of the page (Snowboarding Forum logo) should be the only thing I would look for to link me back to the main site's homepage.

Other than this - cool look.
