This is definitely more my field than feature team (since it involves the coding), so I will go ahead an reply directly! I really like the idea of a sidebar or widget. We've got the rotating banners, but I can agree that overall, the visibility leaves something to be desired and is probably in need of a loving hand. I will see what I can do to make this happen and make it accessible, but it's gonna be very bootstrapped like voting this year, so I request patience and love. Thank you for the wonderful suggestion and thoughtful feedback.Suggestion: Whenever there's an event like the Ganza or the Summer Spectacular going on, there could be some kind of banner or sidebar widget near the top of the front page for the whole duration of the event with the schedule and links to the relevant threads. This would help people who aren't good with forums immensely, and it would also keep people from forgetting about the event after having looked at the thread once.
