I think we're supposed to comment on the articles directly on the article page.
yeah i hear you, but i usually just link to the forums and skip the home page, so i dont even notice when a new article is up most of the time. just saying personally i'd be much more likely to read/comment on an article if it was also posted in leftovers. just curious if that would be the case for a majority of the other members as well
Articles? We have articles?
Yea, I usually go straight for the forums, bypassing the home page. Mainly because, since I'm in semi-retirement from fantasy football, I come here for the football discussions. Which is why I live in the leftovers forums. Catering the whole board to fantasy players with a few scraps for just football fans is a mistake. Streamlining will help I think.
Just glancing at the front page...
1) IDP has 39 topics....trash it.
2) Why is routine plays, special teams and pimp my squad (come on...really? "pimp my..." was the hot thing to say in the 90s/early 00s...Next a forum called "Yo dawg, I heard yo liked fantasy football. So i took some fantasy football and put it in your fantasy football so you'd have more fantasy football!") Do we need 3 boards and 8 subboards....and why is college football under there anyways?
3) Fantasy football live chat...Obviously not a popular place to be during the games. Get rid of it, and people can talk about it in GC.
4) Fantasy school. Either combine the two subboards or move the FAFQs to the home page. Then take this one, combine it with routine plays, speacial teams and pimp my squad and make just ONE board, with 2-3 subboards. All about fantasy football.
5) Preseason Paradise....Just because somebody thought of a name with a neat alliteration doesn't mean it has to be used. Preseason is only relevant a few months out of the year and most of it will fit just fine in leftovers.
6) Community tasks and Cafe help? If it doesn't relate directly to the football cafe, stick a link to it on the front page.
7) Article discussion ...Rarely used. Leftovers would be a better place. More traffic to generate talking about an article.
8) Fantasy Football stadium...Just like a stadium, its big and bulky. One board, several subboards. Should clean up real nice.
9) Team subboards...just go ahead and get rid of the AFC South, AFC West, and NFC South. Nobody's posted in any of the subboards since Jet posted the midseason reports.
10) Football talk...clean up or get rid of. No traffic and everything will fit fine in leftovers.
11) Other fantasy sports....one board, several subboards.
12) Tailgate...Do we really need a whole forum about if somebody sees the cafe mentioned somehwere?
