Ah, we had that going on a couple of years ago, too.
Took us four days to get everything up & running.

Good work there, admins

I was hoping the admins were actually doing something with the website like adding the frontpage or something but meh.

I don't believe so, but never say never. Who knows? Maybe there's a pleasant surprise in store for us all.

Oh, yeah. I stopped following that topic as it seemed like it was going nowhere.
What's the idea? Is there going to be a frontpage or are we just shouting a lot while nothing happens?

Tore, that's Mod-speak for "I KNOW SOMETHING YOU DON'T KNOW". At least, it's generally the way I post in this sort of situation :P

Most likely option B if past experience is any indication.

Honestly, I've no idea. There is a change coming up, the site is moving to a new server. That doesn't mean there will be a front page, but I'm just hoping that they might take a look at that as they're working on other aspects of the site.

I wouldn't expect something like a front page to pop up over night anyways. Admin might like to chew on the idea for a while first and since none of us have ever been in direct contact with him (I believe), then who knows? If we don't get one, then I'll push the idea once again in a year's time or so to show once again that this is something we care about.

edit :

Past experience also tells me nothing will happen, but I have problems quietly accepting that I choose to remain a hopeful nag.

We can also create a frontpagepage of our own.
www.musicbantercentral.com or something like that.

I don't know .. I roughly have the know-how and once thought about doing it simply as a way to demonstrate to the admins what they are missing, but decided against it. When it comes to doing it as something which is supposed to be a permanent feature and not just an example, I'm not sure about the legality of it. You're then creating a portal website for someone else's website which will duplicate some of it's content and that sounds a little shady to me.

Also, it wouldn't have the potential to ever get as good. At least not without the security details to the database!
