updating the home page
 
Is anyone going to update the home page? It's been almost a full year since we discovered the 2020 tour might be effected by Covid. I'm just getting tired of seeing it everyday.

I had the same thought, but I didn't want to be a cunt and say it. Thank you for biting the bullet.

I don't think I've seen the home page in years. Chrome takes me right to the forums.

Yea, let's not pretend there hasn't been news. If you go back a couple years ago, even Dave simply mentioning that he was in the studio with Carter (like he did on one of the streams a few months ago) would have made the front page. I've volunteered to write before but never was taken up on the offer.

It's not a big deal, but let's call a spade a spade - the reason the front page hasn't been updated is not because there hasn't been anything newsworthy.

If the rescheduling of the entire 2020 tour isn't newsworthy, idk what is.

The main page should just link directly to the forums. The front page of this site is worthless and has been for a while.


I'm not faulting Matt, Joe, Jake, or anyone else that has the ability to update it. This site is a hobby and has been really great for a really long time. But the front page is worse now than DMB on social :lol

Or the drive ins, Dave solo streams, Sirius news, the Dave and Carter sessions. There has been a lot of news since the last front page update.

I think my front page still has a survey asking how I feel about butch Taylor being back.

I read it for the articles.

Side thought - does Jake ever post in DMBc any more? I feel like I havenít seen him post here in years (literally)...

The only time I ever go to the front page is when someone makes a thread complaining about the front page. The second anything even remotely newsworthy breaks, there's a thread about it. If you're actively posting in this thread, you're getting the news the same as I am, so I don't know why you even ever go to the front page looking for anything. The front page, and front pages of message boards in general, is a useless vestige from the early aughts.

Yea, pretty much this.

Just treat the "New Posts" button as the front page.

I donít think Iíve ever looked at the front page. Iíve always gone directly to the forum.

I forgot Ants had a homepage. My bookmark goes right to the forums.

Well then you know there has been lots of interesting things since last April. Just because someone doesn't feel like updating it doesn't mean they shouldn't. Lots of dave solo shows, interviews, rumors about new albums, the pretty fucking awesome Dave & Carter performance... That stuff all would have made it in the past.

There are some entertaining articles in the archives, though.

You managed to find out about all that stuff without reading it on the front page, no? So why does it need to be there? Just adjust your bookmark to take you to DMBc if it's bothering you.

The podcast has been M. I. A for ages too. I always enjoyed those. Corner of grey street pod has done a great job filling the void though!!

I know you are trying to make a joke but you are correct. There are quite a few members here that could do amazing work on social media if given access to official dmb material and the resources to do it as a job.

A random person off the street would do a better job.

This website is embarrassingly run anymore.

When I want a real dose of nostalgia, I go through the archives sometimes.

I'll do it, I'll run the band's social media, pick me :)

Been a relatively active member of this forum since 2004, and I don’t think I’ve ever read the home page. Maybe the first week I signed up.
