So how come when I am heading to the message boards

So how come when I am heading to the message boards Can't Post

the home page always looks different? Sometimes there is a box with a nice photo of the Prof inviting me to come to the message boards, although he moves around a bit. Other times he is not there at all, and I have to select 'community' and then scroll down to select 'message boards'. It doesn't bother me, but it seems a bit weird.

Variety, I believe [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know the exact reason either (that would be a questions for Calisuri), but I think it's just for a bit of variety *and* to give our advertisers a chance to share the top-of-the-page spot.

Koru: Maori symbol representing a fern frond as it opens. The koru reaches towards the light, striving for perfection, encouraging new, positive beginnings.

If you're talking about the box being one of four displayed on the page... [In reply to] Can't Post

...then I think those are rotating displays. Every time you visit.... or hit refresh... which image gets displayed in each of the four slots changes - chosen from a bank of possibilities.

I think the standard is that you use the pull down menu to get to the message boards. It just that, every once in awhile, the message boards are 'advertised' ... or featured.
