The featured blog posts with totally new and not the regular few. With approaching 300,000 Active Rain blog members bring in more voices. Would you want to eat, dine on peanut and jelly sandwiches every meal? I think Q & A is more effective and gets large response because it is quick and easy. Make the feature left side Q & A showcased with more of the monitor real estate space because it is more interactive, saves time, you hear from way way more voices. Put features over on right and pull back on the same dirty dozen smiling mugs.

It would be great to see the ownership or leadership actually demonstrate interest in AR. Feels like a neglected asylum in here sometimes. But at least the lunatics are having fun. We've been set adrift the last 2 years.

Above all else, the blogging platform needs to be stabilized.

A writer must consistently check past blogs to see if format or font has been mangled by an AR malfunction and spammers invaded.  Upon a stable foundation the rest can be constructed.

What Barbara Todaro said, and what Debbie Reynolds said. Eliminating the points system, or tweaking it to give points ONLY to real estate related items, would help our SEO ranks with the site.
