I've always figured that the boards are listed in a very odd order. The Product chat board is on top, where it should be, but then its followed by 4 comparatively uninteresting boards. First of, it does not make a good first impressions to have these relatively inactive boards so high up and second of all even if they where more active I'd still say that its in an odd order.
My suggestion would be:
In this order:
Third Party Tools
3rd party models and media
free models and media
work in progress
competitions (if we keep this board)
virtual reality (if we keep this board at all)
I'm not sure what to do with the store boards but they should be way down the list.
, you can have w.i.p. and showcase right after product chat because it shows directly what people do with game guru...but I do get a feeling
that users in general are browsing what kind of media and tools are new/free more frequently.
I also believe that the site would make a better impression this way.
An other thing I'd like to throw out here: Maybe modernize the banners with more attractive screenshots? As I've said before "we don't have AA" is not necessarily the best first impression.
This reflects only my opinion, I've been thinking this for a long time now and figured I'd throw it out there.
