The home page is all messed up.
Was like this last night too. Evan, are you making changes?

It's this darn hurricane. The weather service keeps changing the formatting of it's web page. My fault for not putting in some error checking. Back to the drawing board.

I find that if I bypass the home page by making the Discussion URL my Gunks.com entree, I bypass all problems associated with that page.

Yes, but you also miss any new articles, new events or anything else outside of your own conversations.

Weather is now repaired and the front page is working fine.

Incidentally, in the near future, you will likely not be able to access the forums without coming in through the "front door".

Just my $.02, but that would be annoying.

You fixed the drop down issue too.
Well done.

please dont do that. two reasons:
1) from dial up land in the rest of the world, this site takes too long to load (generally two-three minutes to load the main page for starters) if you go through the steps to reach the discussion. Personally, i would stop visiting and posting from turkey, whether or not i was on a "high speed" connection or not. Its just not worth five minutes to see if there is anything interesting...

2) i believe that the majority of people who use backdoors visit the main page pretty regularly to check for articles, weather, lost and found or whatever...

How bout login only from the front page. Then anyone could browse the best way for them till they want to post. That would ensure some front page visitation - but you would have to do it every time.

It's kind of difficult to persuade someone to shell out $$$ for advertising space on the main page of the site when the best you can offer them is that even though you've provided the Gunks.community with a way to avoid ever having to see the advertisements (by coming in the back way) you still "believe" that they will take a look "pretty regularly." I'm convinced.
