    Ok it's been a couple weeks now and everyone has had time to adjust. Now, time for the feedback.

    How do you feel about the placement of the AC section (as shown in attached)?

    Get your votes in and let's get this settled. Part of the idea is for NEW members to better see the Android related stuff and that's not going to be reflected in this vote - but it will be considered when weighing the results.

    p.s. Yes I see the latest thread in Mod CP is displayed - no biggie though.

    I voted move it back up, but just because I think the introductions should be at the top of the forum the rest could stay at the bottom

    I think this should be taken into consideration, I think it would be the best spot. I voted to move it back up.

    The introductions definitely need to be at or near the top!

    I liked it at the top too, and it seems like we were not the only ones.

    introductions and team forums at the top, but the lounge really should remain as this is an android community first.

    But also speaking as someone whos designed for advertismment revenue, the lounge is also one of the most heavily trafficed areas... so it should be in a better spot. Especially better than some of the phone/tablet forums that arent even used.

    Fair enough, but 99% of users in the lounge are and were originally here because of their phones. :)

    Are you suggesting we rename the forum from AF to theloungewithasideofandroid.com ;)

    I guess the difference between the lounge and device forums is that (most) people will go hunting for their device forum out of necessity, just like they went hunting for an android forum in the first place. Whereas the lounge is the kinda place you discover just because it's there and caught your eye, not because you sought it out.

    Personally my guess would be that the device sections would see little extra traffic for being placed at the top, whereas the lounge loses out from being at the bottom.

    I've got a few ideas (not that Phases is asking for them). I'll post them if I ever get home from work today (or tomorrow or...).

    JMO but agreeing with INTRODUCTIONS definitely best at top -with hopes of it being first thing newbies see. First Reading Site Rules/Guidelines, then Introducing themselves, then on to read Meet the Team.

    Well, I have one thought about it, if we are to "care." :D...

    ...It's Android Forums, so the Lounge being at the top, one of the first seen, attracts many threads with device related queries, etc needing to be moved. The Lounge at the bottom really cut down on that, I've noticed.

    Android Lounge also has that issue with new members coming in and stating their specific device but still not being aware of that device's forum area.. that's a bit easier to take, but the Lounge is way off for those sorts of threads, very inconvenient for the brand new user to land there with a device issue.

    It has been hard getting used to it but I to don't think it needs to be at top. Move intros to the top section, move all the 'archived' sections to the very bottom, etc

    android lounge section
    phone section
    tablet section
    Dev/rom section
    lounge section
    everything else
