I don't think I had ever visited the "portal" page before this (semi) brou-haha. Am I missing anthing?
My modus-operandi has always been;
1) To first visit my "User CP" - read any new posts to my subscribed threads.
2) Then use "Quick Links" to view "Today's Posts". I then weed through the threads to see if there are any that interest me, or I can provide an answer to (with my limited knowledge). Or respond to friends threads. etc. etc.
I also did not care for the "game" threads cluttering up the page, having to wade through them. To each his own. I also enjoy a little off-topic side banter, however it was starting to seem like the forums had degenerated (in my mind)
to an all desert buffet without any meat and potatoes! Thank you for relocating the "game" threads. Those that want to can still post. Those that don't want to see them, don't have to
