    I currently have a couple of videos on our home page, but I am in need of some home page ideas. Content.

    Any suggestions?

    Something that would be cool is a video showing the changes ID has taken since inception. Like those timelapse videos of the season changes.

    Just as being able to handle Mobile traffic and being ready for the next big thing, The first impression is a lasting impression.
    You cannot be all things to all people so you have to be true to yourself.
    When I first staggered into ID I was a bit intimidated. My Spelling SUCKS (OH, Can we please get a better spell check system here... If I remember in HTML days it was attaching a dictionary or something...) and my ideas and memory are not what they used to be, or, what I once thought they were.
    Be true to Mark and the genuine nature of you, and your interests will guide you. If others are not interested then so be it.
    I Love talking religion and politics with the people who come into my store. Most are greeted with a Hey Brother or Hi Sister and sent away with a God Bless.
    I don't fear being controversial because that is who I am... And I get more customer compliments than anyone in the store... Even those who disagree with me at least appreciate that I am me.
    God puts people next to you for a reason, be thankful for them.

    Beings the Hunt seems to be the most talked topic here, maybe dedicate the home page to that but let the visitors "see" there is more to this website than just Fenn's treasure search.

    I am in the process of changing the home page, about us page, and sidebar content.

    Started last weekend day, and will be adding textual content on the home page. I have enabled marquee images and want to have 5 to ten fade in/out inages promoting different aspects of the site.

    I am thinking on the lines of more self promoting of the website as a root landing page.

    Not sure if the web spiders work the way they used to but there could be some interesting tease lines embeded that would make any searcher visit.

    I think I should avoid spider click bait. Google is pretty smart, and very vengeful when they find keyword stuffing on a site.

    Unique content is king. And that is what google likes.

    Unique may be king, but if it applies to a small group of unique people then traffic suffers.
    Its not click bait if the content really exists.
    Speaking only of the chase, I think there is enough true content here to give most searchers a lift.
    There is little you could say or use as bait that the site does not have.
    25 days to YELLOWSTONE! 23 if I don't count today or the day we fly out.

    Bold forum titles mean new posts in that forum unread.

    Yes groups are an extension of the members interests. That is what they are for. Of course all members are bound by the site terms and conditions, member guidelines, and privacy policy by use of the website. But I rarely have had any issues with anyone. Most people do not have bad intentions. The rest I can take care of.

    Members who join have the option of an avatar.

    Those who that do not use an avatar, the avatar is replaced by a gender symbol.

    And those that dont select a gender in their profile and do not have an avatar, a question mark is displayed as an avatar.

    Funny you pick on the groups I made lol.

    Anyone can build a group. I just made a couple in things I had interests at the time.

    I dont recall, will have to check if there is a number that is the most groups any one member can make.

    I am still fine tuning the settings.

    Many of our members joined in our first few years or so.

    Group owners can edit their own groups. Of course staff here will always have full access to all groups made, even if they are not joined in a group.

    I think group creators should maintain their own groups. It is their group after all.
