there is a subreddit now for DF, but it only has 8 members so far. so head on over, and we can have our discussions over there.

That's a really good point. I have the twitter feed on our newsroom page at the hospital where I work.

Something like this, Animesensai?

I agree with Douglas. And the notices could be reduced in size, so the "MEAT" of why we are there is higher on page. :?: ;)

I would support putting links to their facebook and twitter accounts on the forums top page, or even the site top page.

I do not belong to any of those SNses, but if it is public I am willing to look.

I should catch fewer social diseases from the outside of the window looking in.

Something to consider, they have to pay for a bandwidth package for this site. Good pics eat up a lot of bandwidth. A good compromise might be for them to put more links to pictures up. One place with a link to where they post pictures outside of the main page (maybe under the pictures link on the main page), and maybe even some outside links on the actual product pages in the store so that people can see more of the sets in use?

There are several good reasons to do what they're doing, but I also get that some of their hardcore and vocal supporters are on the forums first and other sources second or not at all. The solution above may not be ideal, but it would be step toward resolving that for those folks and it would also help to steer new folks that do use those formats to the places DF is on them. If this kind of thing already exists on the site, I hadn't realized.

Unfortunately, forums are kind of like dinosaurs. Social media is where it's at. I wasn't much on any of the social media sites, but ended up getting involved with a pile of crafting and gaming groups on Facebook... it's pretty much the only social media platform I care to frequent for the generally great people with the same hobbies as me.
