Articles, etc. on home page?

I just finished reading the latest installment of L&A articles. Good stuff. My question is - why not feature some of the better articles, posts, etc. on the SN home page on a rotating basis?

There are great stories and valuable info all over SN that could help the "front page" be more interesting to new-comers and potential members. And many probably never see that kind of content unless they are already forum users and know how to find it.

It seems like it would be an easy, great way to add value to SN's home page with "new" content from the forums.

Just a thought.

Kinda like Sailing Anarchy? Not a bad idea, SMack. I would have to look into the programming to see how it works, though.

Good idea.

Yeah - kind of like SA. But I think it would be better in the sense that it would be a lot more user generated content, where the SA front page is typically more sailing news and controversial op-eds.

In my opinion, the user-generated stuff is much more fun - and does a far better job of reflecting the forum's depth and interest. And the front page gets some fun content.

Furthermore, where SA's front page doesn't typically draw forum users - this probably would because all us rabidly competitive posters would be trying to out-do one another to bask in the spotlight. It's perfect!

Now don't make me use the word "synergistic".
