    There's been discussion about this on one of the articles, but not very many people read or comment on the articles, so I thought I would take an informal poll here.

    Would you like to see the articles that are posted on the top of the main page moved elsewhere (bottom of page or onto a different page)? My opinion is they should be moved because most people don't read them and so we are forced to scroll down to get to them. This is annoying on a computer and even more annoying when using a cell phone.

    Here's the admin's take on it ...

    couple of ideas.

    1. a button on the top that takes you to the articles
    2. post the newest article on top and put the rest below the threads
    3. put all the articles on the bottom
    4. group them in smaller font on the right side of the home page
    5. at least cut down on the number of articles up at one time. No point in reading an article about the 9ers game at this point.

    Please no one take this wrong, but are people just being anal about it?

    From what I see.... is that its just a visual issue?

    Because I come to the forum http://www.packerforum.com/ and 1st tab I click is new posts..

    I see the articles, but thats it, I just see them..

    Do others scroll down past the articles?


    ROB...

    Could there be a collapsible type mod be put in that allows a user to collapse a thread?
