You may have noticed the slight configuration change to the Sponsor's Area today, by way of a change to move the Sponsor sub-forums off of the forum index. I'd like to take a moment and address that change here.
As the board continues to grow, we've added more and more forums, and more Sponsors have stepped up to contribute to the hobby. In order to keep the index page from becoming too ungainly (both in terms of file size/load time, and overall user experience), a few of us felt that it would be best to move the Sponsors off of the index. this helps to improve both load times, as well as reducing the amount of scrolling necessary to view the entire index page (VERY relevant on mobile platforms such as phones).
We hope that this change improves your experience here at HF. As always, thanks for visiting.
