I know you are busy each and every day tweaking the site. I hope when you get to the front page that you do bring back the pen of the week or weeks as you had on the old site. It gave a sense of what to look for when entering. As suggested by others maybe an introduction into what we do here and a welcoming note to make newbies feel welcomed. Thanks for all the hard work you are doing.

I’m sure it’s coming but aren’t you enjoying the review of past front page pens (including yours :) ) being shown now?

Where are you seeing those?? The photos running in the top banner are just random photos from what I was thinking like they did on the other site but instead he has them on a loop.

Maybe Jeff would pipe in but I'm pretty sure every one of those pens were a pen of the week. Mine was put up last year sometime and it surprised me because it was made years before and now it's rolling by again. It's kind of a coincidence to have random pens put up that have all been on the front page before and no pens that weren't. I'll sit corrected if I'm wrong. Anyway I do think the Pen Of The Week will be back when Jeff catches his breath. I vaguely remember him saying it would when the site changed over but that could just be my imagination.

If I recall, the first few days of the new site it was random photos. I thought I saw in a thread where someone suggested the front page pen thing again and Jeff changed the photos to be all the old front page pens. They all look too nice to still be random HAH!

You all could be right but I would like to see the old format where it stays as a solid photo and not run like they are. I know Jeff does not like to pick multiple pens as a front page thing but has on occasion. there seem too many rolling. He could roll those off on the side as a side note. I am sure this will be addressed in the future. Just threw it out there as a suggestion.

Just to get some color and photos on the front page, I've been running the scroller on different categories. There are multiple ways for me to feature a pen on the front page, and I have not yet decided how best to do it. I've been a little preoccupied with getting things done on the back end. The featured pen will be back.
