  15. 15. Some Survey Feedback <br />Well, to me the site is, and has been, pretty ho-hum…i’ve just never been pulled into the site, though i try to visit somewhat regularly.<br />I’ve always been puzzled by the search options. I’d prefer to have individual subject buttons on the homepage instead of that pull-out. It’s not very user-friendly…<br />I like the pictures at the top and the setup of the sidebar. The front page is a little (but just a little) cluttered with words.<br />I don’t find keyword tags helpful. I would like a search field on the homepage.<br />
