    I thought this site was mostly about Chickens and chicken / bird related topics. Just on the first page of new posts I have to scroll past so many things that don't seem quite fitting. I have nothing against these things, but they are taking up lots of space lol. Maybe there can be a different area for them not to clutter up that page? Just a thought. These are examples of what was one ONE page of the new posts!!!

    ~The Battle of the Empires~ New RP NEED PLAYERS

    Boys VS Girls

    college football fans

    Wolf Roleplay

    Dogs vs. Cats ( need more cat fans!!!! )

    Wild Horse Plains! Horse RP Anyone welcome!

    Gallop with Wild Horses!!~ Wild Horse Herds RP (Needs Players!!!) **RESTARTED**

    Wild Cat RP New Needs Players!~

    MUSTANGS! A Horse RP!

    B C Geography how many reply's can this post get?!

    Survive The City: A stray Dog RP RESTARTED~*~

    State a fact about yourself!

    This comes up every now and then. I think Nifty tried looking into that for the Front Page, but I don't think there's a way he can.

    There is a way to narrow it down, specifically, like this. On the category line (or whatever the heck it's called lol) just click on "Raising Backyard Chickens" or "Breeds" and scroll down beneath the subforums.

    Only raising chicken stuff:

    Only breed stuff:

    GJF is mostly just younger members. We're very active, but the people a very small percentage of all of BYC. It's been like this for a few years, ever since the first RP was made. But, I don't think the site's changed at all. Just IMO.

    The site isn't changing at all. GJF always has had the most traffic. If you only want to see a certain set of threads, please go the the appropriate section, and check the threads that were replied to there.

    Unfortunately, we can't change that part of the forum, much as we would like to. We have looked into removing the games and other more social forums from the New Posts, because as you say, it doesn't make us look very chickeny.

    What works for me when I am browsing as a member, is to not look at the new posts, but go to those forums that interest me. And if I must look at the new posts, I allow my eyes to glaze over at the games threads.

    Thanks. I am going to do that in the future. I liked to go through the new posts as sometimes a topic grabbed my attention and was interesting, and something I had not thought about.

    I will to the forums that I need next time.
