    14 Cybookies on the Front Page?

    I get it, Cy-bookie is popular, but I just logged on and there were 14 threads on the front page regarding Cy-bookie. Anyway to condense that down or anything so I don't have to go searching for the popular threads and big news of the day?

    agreed.

    You hit it at a bad time of people posting games for the weekend on a Thursday night.

    I find it annoying too. Cy-bookie shouldn't be allowed on the front page like In-State Rivals isn't.

    I understand that, but I know this complaint has come up before, and for people like me who sometimes can't log on until later in the evening (when a lot of the sporting contests have concluded), it makes me not even want to stay and read anything on the site, because the front page is dominated by threads that have no content in them.

    Im gonna disagree with you on that. For short periods of time, yes they can clutter things right when a bunch are added, but eventually they fall off. And then on the day of the event being bet on those threads often tend to become 'official' threads for those events.... so, hiding them would be annoying.

    However, it would be nice if they could make it so you could make any forum not display on the front page. Personally i would remove the pro sports forum, as i really dont care about NBA\MLB.

    Thanks for the great addition kilgore. I look forward to more of your witty retorts and well-timed barbs.

    I agree with you on the second part.
