a creative community supporting ambient music, art, poetry, photography...
A major change is happening later today on the "activity feed". It may easily make it the thing that we want to look at first when we come to the community - but we'll have to see if it works for us once it changes and we get used to it.
What I'd like to know from you - is what parts of the site do you like the most? When you come here - what is most important TO YOU?
Here is a list of everything on the front page as well as a couple of older items not there now. What matters to you? What would you like to see at the top of the page (or as near as I can get it - there's only so much room!). What is ok to remove from the front page - and have everyone click a menu link at the top (all major stuff on the front page actually has it's own special page - like photos, blogs, videos, etc... with additional options for viewing by most recent or most popular, etc... )
please comment below - or if you prefer - send me a note. Your opinion matters! This is YOUR COMMUNITY! If a bunch of people tell me that 'x' is the most important thing and I had it at the bottom of the page - you can bet I'm going to push it to the top for you so you don't have to scroll all the way down!
a) latest activity
b) MOTD (member of the day)
g) events calendar
h) special blogs index
i) quote of the day
j) community member releases
l) friends & supporters list
m) "leaderboard" (it says "top photos" right now in center column - i rotate this from photos to videos to members etc.)
n) members list (i just changed it from small thumbnails to large ones with people's names - bottom of front page)
o) special features - like the week long features on artists, photographers, labels, etc... we've done in past
p) I used to post an oblique strategy every day, but after repeating them all at least once... stopped. :-)
