Maybe we should take the best strategy post each month on the forum and throw it up on the DS front page?

Sounds like a great idea. We should maybe even add some posts retroactively.

I am not sure off the top of my head whether there's enough strategy article-type content for this to work (there may well be, but I'd have to look). But I miss the front page, so I'm on board.

There are a ton of articles (like my article on Jack) that have been made since articles were posted on the front page. Perhaps we can put those up?

Seems like a nice idea, because right now the front page may suggest that the community is dead, with the last entry more than year ago.

I read the front page for a few weeks before I ever sought the forum. I did not know it was disused. I think it should be used.

You could announce the new expansion.

Absolutely. My bookmark is still to the blog rather than the forum. I am saddened that it hasn't been updated in a while. There is still good stuff happening on the forum, even in the articles section.

Yes, keeping the front page is important, especially for those doing a search online. It shows that our community is alive, and well, not everyone visits discussion forums.

And, Donald is right. The front page should have an announcement about Adventures

You know when you have a colleague with whom you interact every day for months on end until you find him at a party and suddenly realize you don't know his name and now it's kind of too late to ask?

Announcing the new expansion on the blog now feels a bit like that, I'd say.

Besides, everyone and their mom (their Dominion-playing mom) already knows about Adventures. Strategy articles are much cooler and unique to this community. To jump-start the blog revival, one thing you could do is take the current article-of-the-month from the wiki and put it up there.

Yes, keeping the front page is beyond awesome.

Fixed that for you.

To me, even announcing it late is good, because right now, if you do know about the expansion, it looks like the blog is dead, and if you don't, it's not telling you about the new expansion.

Re: awkward name-asking, find a reasonable excuse to ask for their name.  They might feel a bit hurt, but they will (probably) tell you anyway.  Then you can say, "no, I meant your last name".  And then they'll probably feel better about it.

Especially if you smile conspiratorially as you say "No, I mean your LAST name".  It will help sell the notion of "of course I know your FIRST name, we work together dude".  A smile makes a lot of things possible, even probable.

Because lying and manipulating is much nicer than forgetting someone's name.
