It's been a couple month since the migration to XenForo. Thanks to everyone who could have complained, but accepted change and embraced a new platform. Trust me, this migration was the LAST thing in the world I wanted to do, but we had NO choice. We'll continue to develop scripts as needed to make the interface as fluent as possible. XenForo is missing some important admin tools, but it's stable, secure and new plug-ins are coming online as more vB based forums make the jump. I had serious reservations about converting the Front Page to a news based format. Historically, news items don't see the same level of interest as YFs reviews or YOUR discussions. Years ago, I monitored IP addresses visiting our news section and found the majority were industry based; other yachting media, designers, architects, suppliers and industry folks. While these folks are welcome, we built YF for owners, captains, engineers and enthusiasts who have intimate knowledge of the topics we discuss. I don't often ask for group opinions because I can't always accommodate the diversity of requests. In a phrase... 'you can't make everyone happy', so I try to make decisions that won't ruffle the feathers of the vast majority. With that preface, are you guys OK with a news-based front page?
