Default What can we do to make this site better?

As you guys know, I take your suggestions pretty strongly (as you can see by the stickers, shirts, photo contests, etc.). So if you have a suggestion on how we can improve the site post it here.

So far I can't think of anything, that is what I love about the site, our comments and suggestions are listened too, not put down or ignored. Like you said, we wanted stickers, t-shirts, photocontest, etc and we got them!

However, I did just think of one thing. Not trying to compare to RF, but one thing I like about that site is the "portal". Once logged in, the portal is the home screen for you, it lists the newest topics on one box, the photocontests in another, and even shows the top thread poster as well as welcomes the newest member. Just an idea...

I like that also

I think it shows like the top 10 newest threads also.

Tom you thought of something like what R/F had as when you go to FordRangerFourm.com there is a picture of a truck then you click to enter.

Threads are divided up by various forums, so I'm not sure exactly what you are asking...

That wouldn't be possibly with our current setup. Our forum is hosted on "fordrangerforum.com" not "fordrangerforum.com/forum" so we can't redirect users away from the main URL like that.

I personally do not like portals, I go to forums to view certain threads or all threads, seeing the last couple threads on one page was a concept that never appealed to me.

With that said, I don't think it's possible for the same reason mentioned above.

I can't think of anything to make it better. The mere fact that you don't get IP banned for suggesting improvements is awesome.
