I've been visiting atu2 since 98/99. I just remember every piece of news was reported on the home page. Now while I agree there's just too much news to do that, and so dishing some of it off to the blog, Twitter, pod cast, etc., makes the home page cleaner, I still think things that bring us to U2 should still be on home page, which is? The music.
Anything directly related to music and new music, rumor or otherwise (ie Beach Clips), would be nice if they were there, instead of finding out about it in the forums or on Reddit. In a sense, I actually check atu2 less now because it's not supplying the primary source: News of new music.
Anyway, just my two cents. It's not my site, but just throwing it out there in case it does get massive support, then maybe Matt would revert to putting more news on home page.
Thanks for reading my book.
