Default Post link to main forum page on front page

That's basically the whole suggestion.

The only direct link you have from the main page to the forums is to P101, not to any of the help or other disscusion forums, or even just the /forum/ page. I think that's a mistake.

P101 gets a lot more attention than the rest of the board, and I think is is one reason why. I think it would benifit people searching if there were a large, possibly graphic link on the main page that goes directly to the help forums, or at least to the main forum page.

Fellow teens are great for support, but if you a have serious problem, please talk to your parents, or an adult you can trust.

At the top of the forum page it says "New Posts".

They could put that link on the front page as something else like "Forum in action" or something.

The point of the front page is to shwo the fact that the community expands beyond forums.

There are ways to get to the main forum from there.
The easiest is to click on "COmmunity and forums" and the clicking on "Virtual Teen Forums"

I think that a link on the Home tab is needed however.

Sorry, that was a bad word. There is...content...there we go thats better. Content outside of the forum. Because there are the teen topics, then the written wisdom things, then parent topics, legal stuff, and a biography/history thing and other crapoda.

So sorry, community wasnt the word.

And...youre not weird if you have VT friends on MSN......

Boo yah... it is done. .... now, did I miss that the whole time and it was always there, or is it new? :/

Anyway, boo yah for the link! Can we get it in bold, or is that pushing our luck?

Fellow teens are great for support, but if you a have serious problem, please talk to your parents, or an adult you can trust.

At least match p101's.
