After some wonderful input from members, the home page display area for "Recent Poems" now only gives a maximum of one slot to an author for up to 8 authors (members).
In the past if a member was uploading a lot of poems to the site (which we encourage), the home page display area for "recent poems" would display 8 of that member's most recent uploaded poems and 8 of their author poetry header page links. This was not good or fair and long overdue for change.
Now 8 of our members who have posted the most recent poems to the site will have their poem links displayed on the home page along with their member poetry page link.
The list on the home page will be updated approximately every 15 minutes.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS. IT IS ALREADY NOW HAPPENING AUTOMATICALLY. JUST LOOK AT THE HOME PAGE JUST A LITTLE WHILE AFTER YOU SUBMIT EACH OF YOUR NEXT POEMS TO THE SITE.
Because of this change, now a member's name will also stay on the home page longer since multiple submissions from another member will only ever move other members names and poem links one slot further down the list on the home page. Only one member will be bumped off the home page link at any time that another poem is submitted to the site by a different member.
Also, regular members who post to the site should now get more traffic from the home page links when their name and poems are displayed there.
We hope you enjoy this exciting change.
