The system automatically picks up certain threads on the site that are "busy" and links them on the front page. The "tech" forums and certain others are polled for these threads. Some strictly "entertainment" forums are excluded.
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]
in front of the thread title. This prevents it from being picked up and included on the front page.
If your topic has unintentionally appeared on the front page, and you don't think it should be there, you can ask a moderator to edit the title so it includes one of the labels above. This will cause it to be removed from the front page display.
