Please remove tls articles from the home page.

Postby DeSimone » Wed Aug 11, 2010 7:17 pm

Does anyone else agree that having most recent topics as the top (or only) item on the body of tls home page would be best?

Having all articles under a singe link would probably be more than enough.

Agreed. Or, at the very least, flip the order.

I like it the way it is now. If it's that much of a bother to scroll down a bit then I would recommend just bookmarking the active topics page and going directly there.

search.php?search_id=active_topics

I choose not having to scroll as opposed to the contrary.

I support this move because (a) I can't get into Yale, so the Yale dean interview taunts me cruelly. And (b) the biglaw+relationships article is terrifying.

I don't mind if they are on the homepage, just switch the order. The forums probably get what, 10x the traffic?

Sounds like TLS has spoken. Mods, rebuttal? I know the reason was because newbies read the articles first, but it looks like most TLSers are not fans of this. Any compromise that can be reached?

ORLY?

I get that. But for all the pissing and moaning people do, the mods are usually pretty responsive to the opinions of the users on here.

I can see how some articles ("Undergrad Timeline", etc.) could be relevant to most newbs. But stuff like "Notre Dame loan repayment"... not so much.

The articles, while informative, are now a public nuisance. Just switch the order plzkthxbai

I agree, the links to the forum should be on top. As is, the fact that the links to the article don't often change, makes the order seem wrong.
