Below is a text snippet from the upgrade suggestion document I sent to Steve
Redo of Collaborizm.com welcome page
You may disagree with me on this, and you can, but I am sure I lot of users would agree with me on this
Presenting user with the welcome page (with big banners) every time one visit collarizm.com is really not a good idea, I mean as for me, whenever I visit collaborizm.com the first thing I do is check out my notification and it’s rare that I would scroll down.
My suggestion would be to view the (regular) welcome for users not logged in or users visiting collaborizm for first time
So if not welcome screen then what
Now again thats just my personal suggestion, you have every right to disagree.
I would say divide it in 3 columns just like facebook.com and others, the middle column can have the activity feed so users may get a chance to view new and fresh content every time they visit collaborzm.com
And for the regular welcome page content you guys show now, it can take form of columns on the left and right, and each can expand to full sections with relavent content
This will give us a bunch of benefits actually, first and foremost, users will be tempted to go through news feed no matter what, I mean take facebook for instance, whenever I visit I scroll down at least once and that for no reason…! (because there is new content almost every time, they randomize news feed)
