On the old site you had articles that you posted everday dealing with cars, oil, policies etc. I actually read alot of them. Kinda neat to see what going on in terms of conservation.

That was actually a news aggregator. Let me see if I can find one for this software or not.

This isn't really a suggestion just an observation. I've been trying to figure out way the new site has such a different feel to it and I just realized that it does not have a home page. It just goes right to the list of forums no explanation of who you are excetera (although I guess the name says it all). I'm not saying that's good or bad just different.

THe homepage was rarely used, but I'm toying with the idea of making a homepage that will have articles, news items, etc.

I brought it up because when I first got to the site through google right there on the front page was a explantion of what you were trying to do. Didn't have to go through a bunch of threads to see what was going on. I'm not knocking the site just throwing out ideas. I think the site awsome.

that's a good point, actually. i suspect if you crunched the stats on the old site, of all the hits to the index page, almost none of them were from registered users. meaning: it's where you get to promote the site to first-time visitors.

a simple solution - maybe non-registered users (you ID them by cookie, don't you?) could see an introductory paragraph on the index page above the forum list.

If you log out you'll see a message to non-members. If you guys can think of a better paragraph I'd be happy to use it. Right now I'm using the default message that comes with Vbulletin.

I miss the gaslog. I liked that as much as I like the forums. You will be bringing it back, right?

Yep. I have time tomorrow to devote to it. Looks like the swap will start mid-later this week, and maybe I'll have time for the gaslog tomorrow and wednesday. Hopefully it's enough time.
