Default Attn forum vendors, as well as all members...need feedback

In an effort to increase vendor exposure, etc...I'm messing w/ the forum listing on the main page. For example, refresh the main forum and look at the listing for v8 muscle and 3800 sections...note how ive moved vendors that compliment those categories to them (example: deans to v8, sinister to 3800, etc).

do you guys feel this is just making things look cluttered or would there be benefit? my thought it is increases exposure and will greatly help out both the vendor and members who are browing a model specific section.

perhaps i'm just bored today and causing more clutter than neede...looking for CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.

example:

i would also move vendors such as d&d auto body, amsoil and fair muffler to the technical section as they "repair and maintenance" vendors

I'm not seeing this changes. I use the blue and white skin.

its not skin specific. its how the forums are listed.

main forum homepage. scroll down to the 3800 part...should be something like 3800 discussion, ilgpc archive, then sinister drag and wbody store

any difference in how they're displayed if they're subforums?

Like ILGPC could go under gen 3800 disc, and SDD wbody could go under 3800 tech?

Regardless, it's better than leaving them at the bottom of the page where no one ever looks.

Can you see stats for how many times the "live feed" link is used in any given day? Its functionality like that and the "new posts" link that kill ppl ever looking at the main forum page in the first place.

Admittedly, I hardly EVER look there at all, and even then its only to click on live feed.

no stats for that. i used live feed almost exclusively, HOWEVER...on my first visit to the site, i scan the homepage to see what forums have activity.

i could do something like 3800 Vendors then have sub forums be there...thats not a bad idea actually. have actual sub forum vendors....much to think about

if they're included as sub forums, at least ppl have to see them @ the top of the section when looking @ newer threads...

Just a thought.
