Front Page not updated???

by Matt Lemke » Mon Mar 26, 2012 4:52 pm

I see the featured trip reports part of the front page was not updated! Is there a reason for this?
Thanks

Your friendly TR elf took a day off yesterday to hike the Rhine River Valley. First warm and sunny weekend of the season, so I couldn't bother with the front page. Later wife insisted on me helping with the cooking - and getting rid of it and a bottle of Spanish Red Wine (Ribiera del Duero) did the rest...

I now posted the TRs and would recommend another one - sometimes three slots are not enough.

I have to agree with you there. :) My vote goes out to adding a forth slot. :wink:

Nah, I don't think a fourth slot is a good idea.

First of all, those that want to know about all TR's can use What's New or one of the links from Best New Stuff. Sure, the TR's on the front page get more attention, which I believe is a very good thing, but the ones lower down are not read as much because many people don't bother scrolling down. Adding a fourth doesn't help.

On the other hand, I've seen weeks when three slots was too much, so how about giving a good but older TR that hasn't been featured yet a spot in such a case?

Great, great idea Rog...
I have seen plenty of good tr's get burried for no reason, they just didn't get enough votes or didn't get picked.
Let's see what the elves think of that.
