    In-State Rivals forum..... you vote

    This won't be a final decision, but the mod team is looking for input from everyone. A poll will follow and it will be public.

    Question: Should the in-state rivals forum show on the front page?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    So, before I vote, why shouldn't it? Serious question...

    The number of complaints we have gotten has increased. That is why we are asking the question.

    Right, so specifically...what is the issue, I guess is what I am getting at. :)

    My preference is that it should be opt-in, like politics.

    I understand that people who opt-in want to see it on their front page. Why would that not be possible? Can we not do dynamic front pages by member?

    I think it may be a good idea to have only ISU related forums appear on the front page.

    Or alternatively, to have a separate page that only shows recent thread activity for all ISU related forums.

    I like this idea too.

    Re: In-State Rivals forum..... you vote

    I think two of the main reasons are to limit flame posts and they have a tendency to digress into arguments that stay on the front page for a long time keeping the front page less "fresh". I am also in favor of an opt-in.

    Edit: I would also be very happy with it being like the Gaming/Groups forum.

    I don't think it's needs to be opt-in like the Politics/Religion forum, but like Gaming/Groups would be fine.

    It's mostly flame bait anyway. I'm in favor of not seeing a thread bounce around the front page for a week after every Hawk arrest.

    I don't have a problem with it being on the front page, everyone is free to click on what they want and ignore the rest.

    Sounds like people are getting their panties in a bunch over something that isn't that big of a deal to me.

    That works for me as well.

    I think the opt-in is only of use if Jeremy can create the front page by member, and the only way to know what to show would be what a member has opted into.

    If he can do this, I'd prefer that we have an opt in for gaming - I'd like that to show on my frontpage.
