I think there's been enough pinned GBS posts and more importantly continuous and well administrated good content in the many subforums to create new Front Page article material

Subforum admins, in conjunction with their subforum posters, should make one front page article per month.

Theres heaps of knowledgeable people in the subforums, just stop expecting the front page to be old SA and let it be what the forums actually are.

my idea for the new front page: every week a new article with the title: DEAR <GROUP>: WE WERE WRONG

just pick some group that was in the news recently or some random internet subculture. if anyone clicks on the article, all they see is a retraction because the article was embarrassing garbage. everyone will wonder what was there before. people will set their homepage to somethingawful.com with the hope that one day they'll catch the weekly apology before it gets retracted.

If two grown men can't make a pervert happy for a few minutes in order to watch a film about zombies, then maybe we should all just move to Iran!
Can you still be banned for pretending to be surprised there's a front page? Cause man, can you imagine if someone made that joke right now?

one of the first things Jeffrey said he'd do was revitalize the front page and lol

it's perhaps fitting the first goon project of the new era fell apart completely due to laziness and apathy.

a constant, fresh, high quality content pipeline is very hard to achieve. not many websites can do it, and usually the only way they can afford it is hawking ads and selling garbage all over the place.

there's a lot of good stuff that gets generated on the forums, but rearranging it so it's presentable as an article is not always straightforward. a lot of the best humor around here is referential or just riffing ideas back and forth, which doesn't translate well to a front page.

it is probably not worth investing heavily in a front page either at this point. this place is the forums now. nobody was really coming here for the front page for years, even before jeff took over. if you want to engage new people, just setup a tiktok page where you record yourself reacting to posts.

Write something so boring and unfunny for the front page that the concept of the front page as well as the actual front page is removed from history and this forum finally acknowledges its strengths do not include a functioning humor periodical.
