Mine's a bit more full of stuff than I like (that sounds better than saying "cluttered," doesn't it?) Whistling Can we have an option to choose what all we see on it? Does that option already exist and I've just not dug around in my settings for over six months, to notice it? Hilarious!

I'd love to have a "site settings" option over where I update my profile and such, with the different items listed with checkboxes. I can check the things I want to see, leave the rest unchecked, and not have to scroll through a bunch of stuff I don't care about on the home page to get to the stuff I do care about. Green Grin!

See, the way I use ATP is I come to the main page, check my mail, the threads I'm watching, the forums I'm watching (all a matter of scrolling down slightly), then jump below the new photos, pausing to enjoy the ones that catch my eye, to the list of other active topics that I might not be following. I didn't mind when the photos were added, cause they add beauty to my screen as I scroll. But suddenly there's a bunch of comments down there as well, which I have very little interest in, and it just added a huge amount of scrolling to my journey. i'd like to shorten that journey if I could, while leaving that stuff visible for the folks who enjoy it.

Thanks!

Letting people customize the homepage is something that I've had on my wishlist for some time now. I just need to get around to doing it.

I figured that you were thinking of it, because you're so good at thinking about things that make our experience here top-notch.

Thanks!
