Default Questions and Polls

I am not trying to start crap, and I know I will receive heat for this post, but I am going to post it anyway.

This is a fishing forum, I just opened up the front page with the 15 most recent posts, and there was only 3 or 4 that had anything to do with fishing. Maybe Chris can set up a polls and questions section that would not show up on that opening screen, and the folks who would like to take part in the polls can do so.

I know I randomly just read that opening screen and see if there are any posts that I am interested in reading or responding to. I get tired of reading through non fishing/hunting/outdoors related topics.

Like I said before, I am really not trying to start crap, I am just venting.

I totally agree. I hate all of the polls and Q&A posts too... I also use the homepage to get an overview of what's happening on the forum. It shouldn't be too hard to create another section and make it not show up on that overview....

Man that's my bad. I think I didn't say this correct and you took it wrong.



Let me refine this since it seems to be causing an issue with your membership. I hate how they show up on the home page overview! Other than that, I don't mind them!



Sorry I didn't word it correctly but my mind was on the homepage and I could see how you could have taken it wrong.

I like the additional threads and responses on the front page. I really have never understood folks griping about the non fishing topics. It's not like the titles of threads are misleading and tricking you into reading them. If you click on the Forum Home button you can easily pick the particular forum topic that interests you. This isn't directed at anyone particular and it's certainly not the first time to come up.

Ironically, if you read the fishing report threads they usually have the fewest responses. Maybe more would post fishing related stuff if those that read them took time to say nice catch, congratulations or thanks for posting. Or maybe those only interested in fishing related threadsaren't going to the fishing related forums and are missing the reports if they aren't on the front page. Just my .02.

It DOES say "General Chit-Chat" and/or "Off Topic" ... if you want to solely hear and read about FISHING , then go to THOSE threads ... pretty simple stuff :sleeping

Exactly, Thats why the sub catagories are there right.I go to the general chit chat and off topic areas for exactly that.The home page is set up perfectly, you go where you are intersested.Kinda a no brainer.You would,t go to winn dixie to buy a car why would you open the off topic, or general chit chat areas and exspect nothing but fishing posts? Duhhhh!!!!:doh
