Both https://javaranch.com and https://coderanch.com got home page overhauls:






Both of these were done by my friend, Olof, who is particularly keen on my other website, permies.com.  He made a new home page for https://permies.com also:




And then olof made some suggestions for the overall forum look:




Right now is a really good time to figure out where we might want to go from here for the forums.  I think we need to follow two big steps:

step 1:  figure out where we want to end up.

step 2:  make a list of about a dozen changes to we get there.



Anybody wanna take a stab at an alternative look for the forums that would work for both permies and coderanch?

I don't know it is is that anything is broken or that maybe it could be better.

And don't worry if you are attached to an existing view. With the new dashboards/widgets you can continue to use your favorite view.
