  • Do you visit the homepage or jump straight to the forum

    Do you normally visit a websites homepage/portal or do you just go straight to the forum url for the websites that you visit?

    The reason I ask is that I know a few friends who just go straight to the forums and don't bother with the homepage for some sites, even though the site updates it homepage daily.

    It got me wondering if I should bother with a homepage or portal and just have the forum as the homepage?

    I generally look around the websites I visit before going straight to the forum, but if I'm somewhat regular there, then I usually ignore the main website. I always ignore portals though, those I find nearly completely pointless.

        Depends on the site and what I am looking for at the moment.

          It depends on the forum. If I have been there long enough, I just go straight to the Today's Posts link. If I'm new there, then I poke around a bit.

                    It depends on the site, though I tend to find that if its a site with a good homepage (and allows comments on a story) I won't bother going to the forum.

                        Depends.. if I know the site's forum url I jump to it.

                        I'll use this site as an example, I end up typing the "vbulletin.com" about 20 times trying to remember what the name is LOL. so I click the link to come to the forum as If I can barely remember what the site is called, i got no chance finding the forum LOL.

                          It depends. My forum page is the home page. On other websites, if it have an easy navigation link to the forum, then I'll visit the home page first, otherwise I'll type in the forum address and skip the home page.

                            Like almost everyone else, it all depends.

                            If I need information, I usually go to the site, else I'll jump straight to the forums.
