in thread Is the front page change too quickly?

Good points.

I disagree about the front page containing too many items presently. People wading through the web to PM can certainly handle a long page at the gate.

Some think of the front page as, uh, the front page. Others think of the Monastery Gates as the, uh, gates to the monastery. These are two different functions.

A front page should change fairly often, the welcome mat at the front door has a longer usable life. Residents never pay much heed to their welcome mat, but to clean it now and then.

If PM is not first a community which attracts and keeps the exalted, the mundane will find no blessings here. So I'm willing to oblige those who treat it like a front page.
