As you all know in the homepage there are

4 forum boxes underneath each other showing 15 threads each.

 

Instead of this, why don't we do

all the forum boxes (10) and each showing 5 threads...  

We would still have an even layout 

 

5* 10 = 50 + 10 titles

4*15 = 60 + 4 titles..

 

Just a suggestion.

 

It would help the reader post better, and also take notice of the new posts in the forum he is interested in.

 

For example: A pc nerd who wants to help, would just look at laboratory rat.. and see new threads.

This would make time less consuming in searching for appropriate new threads that you might be interested in.

 

I also point to the problem of bug finds, when simply new threads accumulate on each other and the thread ignored.. same with suggestions and so on

 

just an idea

Which do we put on top? The reason threads were mixed together is to have something for everyone in the top of the page (without having to scroll to see it).

It would be cool if there was a way to let members decide what they want to see and in what order but I don't know how to do it. And given the current apathy I am seeing by other members (not you) I am not sure if I should bother.

See if you can get some backing from other members.

What about using an accordion? The only problem I see is that only one tab is open at a time.

I kinda like the current layout. Same reason as Osprey's first sentence in Reply 3.
