    It was damaged during snow removal operations, but I'm not naming names.

    If you remember, I had the snow flake animation on the home page this past month. I removed the snow yesterday and in doing so, somehow changed the configuration of the homepage. Unfortunately, I did not do a proper back-up first and can not easily correct the problem.

    While I'm aware that people have grown accustomed to using certain links of the homepage, it is really only meant to be an introduction to the site. The announcements and poll were default features of that portal (home) page and people rarely read the announcements anyway. So, I'm trying to decide what to do.

    I'm looking at 3 options:

    1. Leave the page as is. Despite the loss of a few links, which are also found on the index page (log in and scroll to the bottom of the index page and all that information is still readily available). I kind of like the less cluttered look myself; although I know opinions vary.

    2. Restore the homepage to it's prior layout - first I'll have to figure out what was inadvertently removed.

    3. Have a new, custom homepage designed that better fits the needs and desired look of the site.

    I'm leaning towards option 3, but it will be about a week or so before I can really get around to making a decision and up to a couple of weeks before any changes are made.

    Ok so the snow was the reason.

    I did not notice the links at the top and bottom. Thanks for pointing that out. i do like the less cluttered look. but think its missing something every time i come, thats all.

    SeanB, Thanks for taking the time to explain the 'snow removal' situation and for all your hard work. Have fun deciding on what to do with the home page! This is the best site!
