Default Cleaning up the front page: a suggestion for WI staff

Hi everyone!

Over the last while, I've been more interested in the news posted on the front page. Ganz has been coming out with some pretty great stuff!

However, I have to scroll through a lot of repetitive and seemingly unnecessary "breaking news" to get to the real news I'm looking for. For example, to get to the news I really want to read, it seems like I have to scroll through TONS of the estore specials. My suggestion is to clean it up by taking the estore specials out and moving them to a different section. I'm not saying get rid of them, because I'm sure a lot of people find them useful, but maybe they could have a different page.

Thanks for reading! I hope you like my suggestion.

UPDATE:
Here's what Justin has posted about this idea:

You can see the test module on the bottom right of the front page..
Ranger1985 had this wonderful idea:
Perhaps there could be a short blurb, something along the lines of: "Ganz has announced the items available for sale on ... For more info click here." Then the "here" link would take you to the rest of it, kind of like what was done during the WIDotCom contest. So unless you click on the link, all you would see is the one line.
I really like this idea!

Yes, I agree with this, but I don't exactly know what their using, and if it's possible to categorize it on the front page.

Good idea! But then, there wouldn't be much of a front page anymore...
Maybe WIki could have a news section with all of the stored articles from the past and you could look through them.
That would be very useful for catching up on past news!

That's an interesting idea! I think there should be a separate place for E-store item updates.

Hi Jagular! Thanks for commenting!
I do see your point but I still think that it would be useful to have less pages of news.

Thanks!

I love your suggestion! It is hard for me to scroll because of the mouse I use; a new section would be wonderful!
