Figurerealm.com: Mainpage - Why the rambling blog posts?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hi everyone,

With all due respect to "Getsa", whose done some awesome work:

http://www.figurerealm.com/viewcustomfi ... =4&id=6131

- why is every visitor to Figurerealm.com treated to a personal blog post about his figures?

http://www.figurerealm.com/

If anything, the Showcase home or "Newest Customs" pages would better serve as an introduction page:

http://www.figurerealm.com/customfigure

Many customizers have personal blogs, but posting about your work doesn't reflect the Figurerealm community. If anything, I'd hope the mainpage would be reserved for postings by Captain Coder, as they're being pushed down by unrelated posts.

Thanks,
-Blayne

hi there guys! I've submitted 2 entries the other day so I was alarmed when I read this post. I thought I've done something wrong... I thought I accidentally clicked something and made my post flood the main page.
thanks yamivash! if not for your explanation, I'd be clueless too and I don't know how I would explain it.. hehe!

Thanks to this topic, I learned about becoming a fan of certain creators. Thanks for asking I guess...

Ah, weird. I didn't realize figure realm had an .RSS feed-like interface that had peoples blog posts appear on the mainpage if you're a "Fan" of the person.

Apologies - I was thinking this was turning up for everyone who visited the website. Getsa's posts are fine, but I thought it was supremely weird that his stuff appeared so frequently on the mainpage.

Thanks for the heads up.

Sounds like you are a fan of getsa. It shows you when he does something new and shows his customs descriptions on your personalized realm page peoples Realm page will very depending on the people you decide to be a fan of ,Example if I were to become a fan of you, Id see the descriptions and names of whatever you post from that point on
