I heard the guy quit and took all the page-updating instructions with him, so now nobody knows how to do it anymore.
That's not quite how I heard it. Besides, we just got that breaking story on the AT-TE Replacement Legs shipping. Did "the guy" help post that scoop?
Basically I'm just saying don't count on us bringing anyone new on, and don't count on the front page changing. There just isn't anyone with the heart to do it anymore. I love collecting, but I don't love the thought of doing what Jeff did before his departure, as that's just a chore to me. Sorry guys!
I have to say I think this is pretty weak response. You're basically saying that no one on staff wants to do it, but you're not willing to bring in anyone new who might be willing to help you out. I'm not aware of too many successful organizations who's motto is "we know there's a problem, we understand your idea for improvements, but we're not going to do jack about it."
The front page is a pretty key element to any site. I'm not really sure how the site is maintained financially, but if your sponsors are on the main page and people are bypassing to go right to the forums, that doesn't seem like a very wise strategy. You can also say that you're "focusing" more on the forums, but I think that probably means you're just spending your time blogging like the rest of us. That will only last for so long before the majority of folks start migrating to more "active" sites. I personally have started hitting up other sites more often and I know others here who have done the same.
I'm no expert on running websites, but it seems pretty silly to me that you have an able group of supporters who might be interested in helping and you're not even giving it consideration. To Diddly's point - some news/any news on the front page is probably better than absolutely nothing.
Wow. I bet the eighteen people that own Zunes are pissed.
I'm not quoting it because I have to leave soon, but please read the FULL About Us section instead of that tiny sniglet of it that makes us look bad. Read the full thing before making your descision.
The worst part about this is everyone isn't reading the whole About Us section, just that little part.
