Make the "Featured Content" on the front page optional

    Since the front page is the equivalent of every other forum's UserCP, it's where my subscribed threads can be found.
     
    Now that this new "featured content" is on top of the front page, I have to scroll down to get to my threads, which is rather annoying in the long run. Especially since the two "featured content" advertisements are rather huge (and who knows how often they change content - I've already read both threads long before they were "featured").
     
    Could that please be made optional? At least for logged in users, I guess for visitors it is quite useful eyecandy on the front page. Or maybe it could be moved to the right side bar, where the other advertisements are?

    Seconded.  However, you can click on "Subscriptions" top right and get the same page without the extra stuff, which is what I'm doing now.

    Thanks, that works just fine. Never really used it before because of the front page option. It's a bit confusing with three places showing relevant threads (and the "recent activity" one in "my profile" even showing threads I already unsubscribed from - that's why I don't use it).

    Don't forget that the front page is often the first place visitors come when they arrive at Head-fi.  Putting some interesting content for them there is a good idea.

    Indeed it is. Thus my suggestion to make it optional for registered users, like the green on/off buttons for products/forums/profiles/wikis. But now I'm using the subscriptions page thanks to your suggestion, and all is well. [​IMG]

    Yeah I was of a similar opinion until they changed the featured articles today. I actually found some things of interest and saw the merit in the idea.
    I'm not against it being optional, but for me I'm now discovering the "Subscriptions" page.

    I agree. hate the new layout with featured content at top.
    at least before it was at the bottom and I could see my subscription when head-fi loaded.. now i have to scroll down to see if any new posts are made to the threads I have subscribed!

    Agreed. The featured content is not updated so often and I've already read what I wanted to.

    +1 for switching it back

    another for switching back. and the scrolling stuff has got to stop. it wreaks havoc with my phone. at least let me choose a "low-fi" version....

    the scrolling works fine on my iphone.
     
    Maybe just set your bookmark to the "subscriptions" to take care of this?  Seems like a nice feature for newcomers.

    Ok I think it's a bit much now. Having both the scrolling panel AND the featured content bellow it is overkill. One or the other please... or blend the two?

    I bookmarked my subscriptions page, so I go there first now.  Problem solved. Now if only the list was full-width...
