Poll: Do You Check PassPorter's Front Page?

Hi everyone!

Just a quick question -- how many of you go to our front page ( PassPorter.com - Walt Disney World, Cruise, Disneyland travel guidebooks, tips, planning, articles, photos, and information ) ? And for those of you that go, do you just click off to go somewhere else (like here) or do you read and scroll down through our latest news bulletins, articles, etc.? Just curious if you find our front page useful or not. Thanks!!

I have the web address for the forums bookmarked, so I generally skip it. I only go to the "home page" if I'm looking for a different area of the site.

Depending on whether I am checking from work or home - work I go to the home page and peruse the news info/and updates before jumping to the forums. That's how I found out about the Free Dining during our upcoming trip! At home, I bookmarked the Forums - but will go back to the home page to check for news/updates occasionally.

I don't go every day, and I don't read every word, but I normally look at the front page weekly or so, and read one or more of the articles posted there.

Rarely. I mostly hit the "Community" tab and come straight here.

Frankly, I find the threads that highlight PP news articles most useful to me. In fact, those have sometimes encouraged me to check out the front page where I otherwise wouldn't have.

Very very rarely. I have the forums bookmarked. The store and Florida pages are next in line in terms of frequency but even those aren't very often or on anything approaching a regular basis. The others, well I can't remember the last time I went to any of them.

I always start at the home page. I do read any the headlines of whatever is at the top of the screen. Unless it interests me, I don't go any further.

I have the boards on my favorites tray and simply don't think about going elsewhere usually. I probably will more often now, though.
