    Breaking News on the Front Page is simply a replacement for the genius Cereal Killer Op Ed Section which was falling into disrepair. It's main purpose there is to get the BEST 1st impression possible of USMB, for surfers, cruisers, and potential new members.

    It's there as an "outreach" to non-members. BEFORE they start cruising thru the other forums...

    It's sort of stupid, everyone goes to FZ, Politics or Current. But maybe it'll eventually work

    So perhaps we should just put the FZ on the Front Page? :coffee: That forum is the "extra surprise gift" that people get once they register.. It's amazing how people's values just don't match up anymore !!! :p

    This is supposed to be the feedback zone, I gave feedback. I don't like it and moving threads to it is silly if nobody goes to it

    Would this help people notice the Breaking News section?

    It's in the Hobbies section, sandwiched between Food & Wine and Music.

    I've never posted in the Gardening section, not being a fan, but I do post in Food & Wine and my music thread is in the Music section.
