If I could, I would make it like it used to be: focused on Rebel motorcycle.

I do like updates in the latest and greatest stuff, but I come here for Rebel stuff, not motorcycle.com articles.

I use the home page quite a bit as a home base, if you will, and do not like having to scroll down so far to get started.

At this point, it is clutter. If I never see these articles again, it would be too soon.

Not trying to be a jerk, but I did like the random pics of Rebel'ers albums there.

That should come back.

I do not see the ads that are being discussed here. It must be my Adblocker.
I have Chrome with ad blocker, too, and don't see that stuff.

Y'all need to pipe down as to what blocks the ads...methinks they'll be more inclined at bypassing the ad blocking/forcing those ads on us than making the desired improvements.
Karental and StarBaseONE2 like this.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Hey! The big articles are gone on my feed. Oh, they're still there. I just wasn't "home". But I just scroll past them.

Most forums give you a choice to eliminate the ads...IF you buy a annual or a life subscription.$$$

The ads are how the site is financed.

2003 Honda Rebel 250 (NOT to be)
2009 Triumph T100 Bonneville
2010 DF250 Bobber(sold)

At the moment we do not have any paid subscription options available, but if this is something that folks are wanting, it is something we can consider stating.

I have to agree also,the site has become aggravating to many members.I think you are losing more members by the day.If you are going to be successful you surely know that when even the moderators are leaving there is a problem.Perhaps you could do a member poll?

There is a poll, not by the owners of the site but a poll nonetheless. http://www.hondarebelforum.com/f84/l...ite-68753.html
