The system automatically picks up certain "busy" threads on the site and links them on the front page. "Entertainment" forums are excluded. The "tech" forums are polled for these threads.
If you are creating a topic that is probably NOT one for the front page, such as personal events (births, deaths, sickness, marriage, etc), you should place [OT] or OT: in front of the thread title. This prevents it from being picked up and included on the front page.
If your topic is appearing on the front page, and you don't think it should be there, you can edit the title so it includes one of the labels above. If it has timed-out for editing, you can ask a mod to help.
