Gosh,it IS a relief (to my eyes & mind)to see the old FrontPage!

I guess, it's Michael N's and other DP mods' filter that I trust and enjoy exploring first thing in the morning or during quick short hurried visits in between daytime chores.

This weekend, though, I did get to experience the usefulness of glancing the entire list of topics floating on this stream of DP info conduit. I never realized how much time & energy you have to pour in to manage the traffic and "select" the choice topics for us to peruse. THANK you for all this gift of your time & mental stamina. (It is well worth our bi-annual membership payment, which should be reaching you soon. We had to cut back on almost all other subscriptions, but we feel obliged to continue with this one. . . at least for the time being, while we can. . . )

mb your page traffic is ok,

mb your page traffic is ok, for now, but this new front page stinks. An automatic integration into the old format using top daily votes as the criteria updating every hour or so would be better.

Conduct a Poll Michael

I am not too crazy about the new front page format. I find it bit of an eye strain to have to sift the list looking for what I what to read.

How bout a poll to see who wins? Yay or Nay for the new front page.

Please Michael

Please take off this format. It is awful to sift through all the random ramblings and find relevant stories, articles etc. The list of threads are threads about nonsense, conspiracies, rants and raves.

If it doesn't go back to the old, clean, relevant format you will lose traffic.

Actually, traffic seems to be holding up nicely :-)

Sunday is usually the slowest day of the week. It seems that others like this format. It gives access to much more information than before.

But if you like the old front page format, you can customize your own front page here:

But like I said below, this is an experiment. I'll probably do this on the weekends, so I can take a break. This is the kind of information I sift through daily to choose what to put on the front page :).

Someone's got to do it. Plus, you get what you pay for :-p

traffic boost

There is more traffic because it's taking us longer to find what we want. Also because we are hitting refresh hoping it's been restored. :P My 2 cents is I would rather go all weekend without any updates than have this view. Either way thank you for your hard work.

Thanks for the input

My 2 cents is that I'd rather have a weekend without getting yelled at ("Wake up! THIS NEEDS TO BE ON THE FRONT PAGE NOW!!! WHY ISN'T THIS ON THE FRONT PAGE?!" ) than having to update the front page :P.

Anyway, you get what you pay for ;-q

I like it. Its the absolute

I like it. Its the absolute embodiment of the "marketplace of ideas." It keeps people from getting butthurt because their post didn't make front page. It shows you right away what's "hot" and what's not. I would only suggest that you add the graphic display of the posts like the original front page to make it visually more attractive, but keep the ratings of the post the determinant of what makes the front page. I think its a great idea.

thats what top recent topics is for to the right

the front page is the glamour. i like more vids on my front page personally.

I know everyone complaining

I know everyone complaining here is chipping in as well, right?

It is an experiment

Plus I need a break on the weekends. Someone has to put those front page posts there, you know. They don't show up by magic. So on the weekends, I'll let you guys sort through them instead of me.

And I get tired of people screaming "FRONT PAGE" at me all the time. That gets old.

If you want to customize your own front page, you can do so here:

Michael

Anyway, be happy. One day you might dial into the DP and it won't be here at all.

Thank you Michael! You do need a break.

The next election cycle will be here before you know it.

When you revert this back to the Standard Format...

Consider putting an easy to find link somewhere where we can go in and look at the top of the day, week, month etc. It is actually interesting in it's own right.

Thank Mr. Nystrom.

I enjoy DP since 2008 no matter what format. I understand if you quit one day, but, it will be tuff.

I second the thanks.

If Michael ever decides to pack it up, I hope that he will offer it to bid to another who is as Liberty minded.

You forgot the /sarc at the end of the sentence.

You should get more moderators

they could do it for free. heck, I would.

That makes me want to cry

We are so grateful! Thank you Micheal! Take your break. I like it fine this way. Please don't let the page go.. or, if you do, give us a heads up!

Peace and love!

Yes, you did.

And if you run into trouble, we'll throw a money-bomb your way.

Don't like it

Can't tell if a story has a vid or is text... just don't like the new format.
Hope they change it back or put a link to the old format or something.

having a front page was better.

I do not like a form layout like this. This is why I left Ron Paul forums... and the conspiracy theorists. :)
