Response to Skinner (Original post)

42. Yup, the DU3 homepage kinda sucked.

 

On the old DU, the home page was pretty much my "portal" into DU. It was where I could easily scan for new content on DU. Most of the time I never even bothered with the "greatest" page, just the DU home page.

Since DU3, the home page seems cluttered and confusing to me.

For some reason my eyes don't like the video articles down the right sidebar of the screen. My mind keeps interpreting these as advertisements (because sidebars are usually advertisements, I guess), and I ignore them. The video articles used to be one of my biggest draws on the old DU home page.

I still think the home page is far too long. I don't tend to scroll down very far on web pages without something drawing me there.

The most important DU jump points for me are "greatest" and "trending now", which seems to be just another name for "greatest".

Other than that, I jump to my pet forum (guns).
