No links out of the forums.

I’d like to see a link to the Big List somewhere in the forums. You could use the tapestry in the old forum but that link here just takes you to the forums home. I think it is a shame that there are no links to the rest of the site from within the forums. I often want to check the Big List when I’m in the forum and I have to do it the brute force way. Help, I’ve fallen down the Forums and I can’t get up!

I’ve suggested this more than once, and I very much hope it gets implemented.  There should be an obvious link to the Big List on every page of the forums.

I see a link to the home page now up at the top. Did I miss that before?

Apparently so.  It’s been there for a long time, though perhaps not from the first days of the new site.

Where is it?  Because all I see are links to the Forum Home (both the one so labeled and the tapestry), which is not really relevant here.  We’re talking about a link to the Big List.

At the very top of the page, I see “Logged in as: happydog” and then the link “Wordorigins.org” which goes to the index.html page for the site. Not a link to the big list, but at least a way to it.

I’ll look at adding one to the Big List this weekend.

A link to the Big List has been added. It’s at the top of the page, between the link to “Wordorigins.org” and “Your Public Profile.”
