    There are too many threads on the front page. Finding a "funny" parody video on Youtube does not qualify for the front page, and neither does half of the other stuff. Try pushing out an article a day, maybe with a list of a couple things, other than 10 articles a day, 10 of which are completely worthless.

    Sorry to you editors, but most of the stuff there isn't news, and if people wanted to see it, they would probably be visiting the forum anyway.

    Agree, instead of posting 3 reviews a day, why not make a daily week roundup. (kinda like Engadget)

    I'd prefer that the reviews keep being shown on the front page as single app reviews, not a roundup. At the end of the week we can go and make a roundup for people that have missed it. Putting app reviews together in a roundup will NOT give them more attention, if anything it will lower their views dramatically. Nobody wants that. Engadget and othe websites aren't based on iPhones and iPod touchs. They're able to post so many things a day that they NEED to post a weekly roundup. We don't.

    Also to th original poster, I agree somewhat. The iPod 3G unboxing wasn't too great of an idea, but right now the mods are doing a wonderful job with the frontpage. I believe, it's just studangerous, abcmsaj, and bgizzle doing the front page at the moment. Soon there should be some front page writers also (if I'm not mistake).

    Everyones still getting used to it right now and with time, it will be much better

    Thanks for the feedback. All very useful info. The new front page is still in its infancy and needs a lot of fine tuning to ensure appropriate content and user friendliness. Please keep the feedback coming.

    Sorry for the iPod video, thought it would be suitable because it's iPod 3G related and infact the only thing remotely to do with iPod Touch 3G on YouTube. But it's not news, and it should've just been a thread by itself in the respected section, I've take it down now.

    Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming.
