I have reverted this change. We will use polls in future to get an agreement on such changes.

The "Spectrum Computing" just to the left of "Forum home" now looks a bit redundant.

But it works for me.

(Hi Rui :-p)
Just to be clear, I was not asking for it to be changed.
Just noticed the redundancy, since it links to the same URL as the main logo.

Hi, R-Tape :D

You're right.
There should be a "Forum home" in the first place, because the logo now links again to the main SC web page.
It's not a big deal, but it would look more natural.

Wow, a fight, and after only a few days since most current members discovered this forums existence :lol:

Maybe the link in the logo should go to a new page that is neither the web site home page or the forum home page, but instead is a page which has (currently) two big, easy to see (and use) links, which at the moment will be to the web site home page and to the forum home page.

Further, you could add say, a couple of other useful links, one useful example being, to say, the forum active topics page.

Oh, and by the way, this problem affects other forums where there is also a main site with other content, so the issue is not new...

This is normally where both camps are supposed to turn around and yell, 'Shut up!'. :lol:

I dunno, I've never seen it as a problem. IIRC even the old WoS forums worked the same way. I'm not even sure why anyone would want to move back and forth to the main site using a link on top of the forums in the first place, while on the other hand you might probably want to come back to the main page of the forums somewhat often if you were browsing the forums. So it makes sense.
