Could do. My plan was to set up accounts for anybody who is submitting, so it appears on the front page as a post from their profile, but if that's too much hassle for some people then emailing it in and me posting it with a credit is also viable.

Everything can be emailed to:
submissions (at) metalwarfare (dot) com

Not sure if this has already been suggested, but I think it might be worthwhile to have a "Classifieds" section.

The Musicians Forum is pretty much geared toward , well.... gear.

The Sales/Trades section is for exactly that - selling & trading..

Sure, there's sites like bandmix, gumtree, squeezebox, etc. but lets face it - if you're looking to set up a metal band/project then being able to advertise in a place exclusively for like minded people would be a massive bonus.

Maybe just rename sales/trades to classifieds and it should cover it all?

Fair point. Could go 1 of 3 ways:

- Posts go in the "Musicians" forum
- "Sales/Trades" gets renamed "Classifieds" and everything goes there
- A new board gets created

Any input?

Rename it to classifieds is probably the best and makes the most sense.  Wouldn't add another board for it.

Yeah, I'd agree with just renaming the Sales/Trades to Classifieds. Makes sense.

Link from forum.metalwarfare.com to the front page - www.metalwarfare.com - could be a lot more explicit. When you're on the main forum page, it's not obvious that "Home" means some other page. Maybe some kind of stand-out link that draws attention to itself and to the fact that clicking on it leads to a whole other non-forum area.

First post on the site! Cheers for the work Jamie!

Check it out guys if you haven't already:

Agreed. I've changed it to say "MW Home". Is that any better or is it still unintuitive? I've also changed it so if you click on the "Boards" menu option on desktop it'll take you to the main forum index. It'll expand the board list if you're on mobile. Clicking the banner will take you to the forum index on all browsers.
