Hmm,I wonder if a block in the right hand side, just above the user menu would be a good idea but here goes;
Why not design a box that says 'Welcome [user], CHeck out posts since last visit, You have [number] new private messages, the weather is [weather] in [place].

LFDO used to have one, in their friendly days, cept they never had weather, i just thought this would be a friendly addition..

Sounds like a cool idea,

Sounds like a cool idea, but we have to keep in mind that we should steer clear of bloat as much as that is possible while this could mean having to add an additional block or box in that area of the site.

Will consider something like this though.

ehh

That's kinda bloaty. Weather applets belong in desktop environment panels or desktops, not websites.

If you need to be told what

If you need to be told what the weather is, you have been spending too much time at the computer. It would be more interesting to have counters of open questions and definitively answered questions.

Hmm maybe, that's not a bad idea Taco. Still not sure if the whole thing is really necessary with all we have already though.. maybe only if we convert some of the existing items (like "show what's new", "unanswered" link etc.) into a block like this, but then again I'm not sure it would that much of an improvement towards what we have...

Well whatever everyone believes is best. I'll just leave it for now.
