    Off Topic WTF are some of these "guests" doing?

    Why don't they just join?

    And check the sh*t some of them are looking at:


    I just don't even get it.

    If you want to see where I got this, it's in the forum jump option at the bottom right of your screen.

    There's a lot of reading but some of those "guests" are google/yahoo/bing spiders indexing the forum for better search results

    The reason people don't join is they don't have to. The blog on hypothetical TRADES is complete non sense...hypothetical crap. There are many people here who don't understand basketball and the few that do get 34 to 42 viewers..pathetc. The SITE needs complete revision PERIOD.

    I only joined because I could no longer see the images unless I did.
    The fact that the articles on the home page are from 2010 is a joke to be honest.

    People aren't going to come back if there's never any new content..

    Some of the comments in this thread sound harsh but kinda true.

    The frontpage is an outdated mess, no offense to anyone involved in its conception.

    Everything is cramped, cluttered, poorly functioning and out of date.

    I've literally only ever visited the frontpage of this site while navigating lazily to the forums if I'm on a browser without bookmarks. I never linger there.

    I really suggest just finding a nice wordpress layout or something, get a nice logo (we have a bunch of talented graphics dudes here), and condense everything.

    There are also a hell of a lot of sections to the site none of which I would imagine see much use. Cut it down to Home, Community, Media, Articles or something.

    Frontpage should be literally logo, navigation bar, perhaps a box for latest game score, latest forum posts and articles underneath (which I understand are being worked on).

    Start posting articles regularly so the frontpage is not stagnant. If we can get a graphics guy to make gfx for articles, use one of those nice navigation boxes w/e they are called for articles. Use the bbcode for the articles so they can be accessed from the frontpage but also viewed and commented on in the forums.

    Tidy up and condense the forums. So many of them are completely unused. Personally I'd put the NBA forums as a child of the Knicks forum, because threads should be in that forum but people don't want to post there because threads get no attention there.

    Something like this, so simple, clean and ridiculously easy to set up:

    Dear Metrocard..If it were anyone else but you I would not respond and then I saw SMOKES suggestions which nailed it. Rather than be defensive take his 100% RIGHT ON suggestions and implement them and we will have a great site to match what should be a banner year for our Knicks...

    It's not about being defensive...

    This site goes beyond the front page.
    There is history enriched in this site. It's timeless. It build this site help and got people interested in joining. Even the people who "didn't know anything about basketball", they were viewers who read their post and wanted to sign up just for that reason. They wanted their opinion made public, and this is the place to do it. This site is great for that...always been. If you're looking for a Knicks forum uncensored, this is the spot. Sorry if you guys were never apart of that, but you got to respect how this site was built up. Rady took nothing and made it out of something.
    No need to nag on him about the "outdated" front page.

    Sure, we can hook it up(theres not evident problem with that)

    But be respectful. Without a lot of former posters here (many great posters, most knowledgeable fans of the game you can find on the net, over realgm, prosportsdaily, nykfanpage, etc) help build this website up.

    I feel like theres always room for improvement, but imagine being in Rady's chair and hear people put down his site...negative reinforcement doesn't always produce the best vibe.

    No one really comes hear to read smug attitudes and how you're so much better than this website. If you want improvement and upgrade, why don't you contribute? You seem to act like you know all about that...share the wealth brother.

    Harsh, but not necessarily unfair.
