    Moving In-State Rivals Forum

    Just a thought and site suggestion. I would like to see the In-State Rivals forum moved off the most recent threads part of the front page (like it is for the Politics and Games forum). I have no problem with it being here, I just think it would benefit from a little less play. Much like the Games & Groups and the Politics/Religions forums I like to read it sometimes, but by their nature they get a lot of posts and are on the front page a lot. Also, I think we would get less flame posts if it wasn't on the front page. Just a suggestion. And if I opened this can of worms, I don't think the front page should be restricted to just Cyclone content but I think Games, Politics, and In-State Rivals are good things to not have on the front page. And I also know that you don't have to open threads if you don't like it or want to read it.

    Couldn't agree more. It helps both parties involved.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Agree on the I-S Rivals but not betting board, too many turn to game threads...

    Re: Moving In-State Rivals Forum

    I see where you're coming from with this request...but, if it's not on the front page, I'm not reading it (most of the time).

    And, I really want to disagree with DJK.

    But, if we take too much off the front page, we won't have a front page, and the front page is one reason why this site is so much better than any other site.

    I'd like to take wrestling off the front page too...
