    Post the articles!!!

    Im not sure why the change has happened but you guys need to post the articles on the forums as well as the front page. I rarely ever enter the forum through the front page as I just bookmark the "what's new" page and hit that to see if anything new has posted. Imagine my surprise when there are two articles on the front page I havent read yet. Nothing ground breaking but it's easier to post and comment on the forum rather than login through facebook and post.

    Plus, Tim Cain, what does this mean??

    Don’t thank GM’s cars, sales of which tumbled by more than a tenth.
    A tenth? Ten percent? A tenth is nothing when talking about percentages.

    I do the same, I totally skip the FB page. Though I do get frustrated that those articles never get posted in GMI. Time to say that experiment has failed as they rarely garner any FB comments (the few times I looked). I feel it takes away from GMI as those splash page articles don't get posted in the traditional GMI.

    Agreed. I was hoping the Car and Driver Lightning Lap results would get their own thread since the Camaro ZL1 and ZL1 1LE both did awesome, but there's been no discussion of it on GMI.

    You can post the article - just wont make it to the main page unless the Admins move it (which they don't extremely infrequently now).

    Im more talking about the featured articles on the front page. Some of them are actually pretty good but a lot of people just dont even see them because GMi is more forum format than CNN.

    Hey,

    From what I can see, the articles posted on the home page are also posted here: https://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f70/ . So you can also go there to read the articles.

    Not quite.

    It's missing ALL three of the front page articles.

    True, and I've seen others do it, but I was hoping it would have been posted already. Just lazy on my part I guess.

    I thought the article titled: Watch the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE Decimate (Almost) Everything at Lightning Lap on the main home page counted as the articles you were talking about? It's displayed on the home page right next to the August 2017 sales gain and Cadillac's US operations articles.
