    I still say someone has to do a better job of advertising the main SK site on this message board. It's as if the main site does not exist when you come here. The little tab at the top just ain't doing it.

    Very open to suggestions as to what might help get their attention. I don't understand how people get to the Message Board without going to the main part of the site especially when they're first time visitors but maybe they just don't take the time to look around to see all that's there.

    They probably just Google "stephen King message board" and come right here.

    I'm no web designer, but I'll put my thinking cap on.

    I think if the "StephenKing.com" tab were larger than the other two, and/or if it were located in the middle above instead of off to the side, it would be more conspicuous.

    How about a banner that "advertises" the main site? Something like, "Don't forget to check out stephenking.com for information on upcoming projects, official bibliography, news and everything else Stephen King! Click here!"

    I will tell you: looking for SK merchandise on Google I saw shirts that read 'SKMB'. I had no clue what that was, so I googled it, and here I am! I never even visited the main site I believe.

    ...how about a whole page that pops up when you try to come here, that threatens to redirect you to Danielle Steele's page, if you don't click on stephenking.com first???...

    I got here by googling "someone talk to me about Stephen King The Dark Tower" - true story.

    Start up computer, click on Safari and pestro- StephenKing .com appears. My daily Good morning greeting- just a click away from the MB.
    Bigger tab would help. It kind of blends in now.
    How about if one goes directly to the MB, the screen goes to a drop down message (like when you are doing a profile message and are over the 140 characters)? Have you ck'd the main page today- return to SKMB.

    The Main Site is very well designed and maintained. All new sK info is available there and easy to find. One of my favorite aspects of it is The Library, which includes, among other things, everything he's written, the audiobooks and who read them, movie and TV appearances - everything.

    StephenKing.com - The Library

    Out of Order How You Doin?

    Put a little tab up top saying Free Beer. Have them then be directed to the main site when that is clicked.

    You're gonna need a bigger server........

    A LOT!!! You can find out what's coming out for new written works, movies, etc. The Multimedia section has past interviews. There is an entire section devoted to The Dark Tower. But you'll never know exactly what you're missing unless you go there. ;)
