Yes remove credits, replace with like/dislike of post... maybe even just "like" if you want to keep it all positive like facebook tries to

I have not seen a dislike plugin but I know there is a like and thanks plugin I can get put on here if you guys want.

Some forums love it and others hate it. It can make threads look a little crowded. I figure I can put the ticket in to have it installed if it looks like a shit show in a few weeks we can turn it off.

Personally I agree with snowolf. You can already rate threads. Pretty much serves the same purpose. Like or dislike don't really add anything.

I am more into getting the navigation bugs worked out. I've already have had a few members come to me over it. Easily solved problems, but the solution isn't always intuitive for everyone.

So I didn't read all the posts but why was this change made at all? I saw basketball forum mentioned a few times. that looks like a POS IMO. Why would we want to go down that road? No offence but I know what the date is and I don't care who has a birthday today.

the date and birthday stuff is a default that comes with the front page install. basketball has a twitter account connected. We can also ad news and articles but have to be careful how we report published news.

One idea to dress up the front page is to host a photo of the month contest. Winners get a premium membership and their photo is featured on the front page.

Give it time guys. I have a pretty good idea how it will be useful for us. I'll get on to requesting the tweaks I think will work for us next week.

Front page also gets google to take a second look at us getting a little more search engine traffic.

Actually, this page already does pretty damn good with Google listings. Especially when it comes to "...review" term search queries.

Hate to be the only one to disagree but I can't see why its needed. This is a forum first. Adding things like twitter and a news feed are not necessary. The thing I like most about this site is that its a good place to come and shoot the shit without having the rest of the bullshit along with it.

Just my 0.02.
