Now that we save bandwidth from removing the video, perhaps we can afford avatars?

Can we also get back the recent posts section,two days of actual posting,
the homepage only shows the most recent post.

Can we also get back the recent posts section. :-\

Hopefully the software update will allow a better frontpage module

The front page Recent Topics should be expanded by 4x IMO.....

Hint, nudge...

The youtube vids on the frontpage are ok so long as they DON'T load automatically please (like the current 1st one does)

Should we just give up on ever getting the frontpage recent posts/updates expanded??   :P

I agree with this fully. There needs to be those options applied to the link to
not start the video automatically. It creates unusual audio when I am trying to
read the site. Even when I stop the video manually, the data for it continues
to load! ...talk about a waste of net bandwidth. People don't continue to
watch the same video over an over again, so systemically it should not start.

and;

Also this embarrasses Youtube (or it should). How come I have to sit waiting
for many uncomfortable minutes to get older youtube videos to start on the
youtube.com site, and yet they can service high speed front pages like this???
...It is bogus.

Thank you Stefan,
YouTube should have long ago stopped that ridiculous habit
of continuing the feed cache even though the video was stopped.

It is just a waste of the internets bandwidth to the extreme.

Sadly, more and more pages are using YouTube as their feed,
But maybe someday they will be more responsible and stop that.

Something about pigs with wings comes to mind though...

I pitty the dialup ISP folk.

Thanks Stefan for all you do in maintaining this site.   It was very good to see it back to usable again as with my browser I could barely get into the site if I started at the main .com page.  I couldn't click on anything to get beyond the page with the video so I'd have to start from another page (thanks to browser history) here to get anywhere.  I think having the video auto-start was the biggest problem.

Wow - 18 whole topics listed on the front page recent topics  :(

I keep hoping someday this section will be expanded - what happened to the new software update that was going to improve this 6 months ago?

Remember the good-old-days when there where like 100+ recent topics on the front page?
Sure made it easy to see what was going on, what was of interest, what the popular topics are etc. etc. etc.

But I guess my request will fall on deaf ears as with only 18 recent topics listed, this post will very quickly fall into obscurity just like so many other revelent and interesting posts!   >:(

I understand why this is the way it is. It's expensive from the database
server's access standpoint to create the front page. If you don't have
the database resolver then things quickly get out of synchronization and
message base then "blows up".

But here is an idea: Fit a button between "Home" and "Forum" that would
be like an extended front page, containing more items in historical sequence
but have it be non-automatic so everyone is not beating the database server
down all at once. The way it is now is idiosyncratic because if someone doesn't
boost it up a message gets lost and you have to worry about someones spam
messages shoving valid posts off the front page into no man's land. A task
MIBS might enjoy doing. >:(

 PLEASE EITHER DELETE THE YOUTUBE FOOTAGE ON MAIN PAGE OR ATLEAST MAKE IT NOT START PLAYING UNTIL A MEMBER CLICKS ON IT TO MAKE IT START PLAYING.
 It is becoming a pain in the ass to deal with everytime I log on and or go back to the main page when surfing this site. Plus it makes it take longer to log on.

 PLEASE DEAL WITH THIS ASAP.

If you use firefox and the no-script add-on the video will not even show up unless you want it to.  That is what I do because yes, it is a real pain.
