POLL: Your Preference for Initial BKP Top-Level Page View

Do you think the new, collapsed initial view of the top-level index page is best, or the original expanded view?

I am worried that the collapsed view is discouraging reading and posting because it does not display recent activity (by that little orange bell).

But on the other hand, the fully expanded view is a little bit overwhelming.

I have a skewed point of view because I already know where everything is, and so I need your input. Please help.

This poll will run for five days and will terminate Friday. I'm not voting.

The Polls Are Now Closed

The vote, with turnout at a very low 15%, ended in a tie vote.

Because the rate of new membership dropped precipitously when the new, initially collapsed top-level view was adopted (which may have been coincidental but I have no way to know) and the rate of posting simultaneously seemed to drop as well, I am going back to the original, expanded view.

Those of you who like the collapsed view can still access it as your initial view via the following URL: http://www.bareknuckles.org/bkp/index.php?c=12 . Furthermore, you can collapse the view at any time by clicking on any category name from the expanded view; all the OTHER categories will then collapse.

Otherwise, the following URLs will now go to the original expanded view:
