“Moderated debate” section needs to be completely deleted and the “young republicans” section needs to be moved to the bottom, and replace moderated debate with a section called “State of the Economy” above young republicans. This thread is very different than the “money” thread. The threads in the money thread should be moved from the money thread to the “state of the economy” thread. Then delete the money thread. I’d consider adding a founding fathers thread of some kind. Also, threads that are created that no one posts in should be deleted, because new members that see no one contributing wouldn’t want to join due to many threads being inactive. That will also move up naturally the threads that people here did contribute in and show that this board is very active. Needs to be done to all sections of the forum.
Home page looks very unprofessional the way it’s structured. I’d make it all blog posts or all attention grabbing news or have writers contribute. I think every regular poster should contribute a blog post to be put on the home page. It will help the site a lot and make people feel like they can contribute and they will sign up and introduce themselves and post.
