Hey,

Would it be at all possible to get rid of that splash screen at the front of the site? It's very annoying, and serves no real purpose.

This is just my opinion.

:)

What are other peoples opinions on this? I'm happy to remove it if people think it is a problem.

Personally I just bookmark http://www.aussiehomebrewer.com/forum/inde....php?act=portal which is the front portal site. I like the idea of the front page especially when the (optional) skin based on the same colour theme is implemented.

If people want it removed it is out of here....let me know!

Hey Fiscus,

The splash is OK, particularly for new starters (sorry Vind :D ) but what about putting one of those "Bookmark me Now" thingamebobs on the next page so the rest of us don't have to type all those long winded URLs - particularly us more life expeienced folks (read older!) guys who type with two fingers.

Not that anyone would like this.. but you could always implement a cookie.. so if someone enters the site. once it stores the cookie.. after that it just goes directly to the main page.. well if not.. yeah doesn't really serve a purpose other than to new goers..
Cheers

Nice idea Ic3man, your idea seems to be the best of both worlds. I've added a cookie to the front page so if you have visited the front page it will automatically take your straight to the portal section. :D

I've got the forum bookmarked so I come straight here, the flash screen though I think just adds that little bit of class to the web site. Every web site has to be different, I kind of like it there when I saw it last.
