I often have a quick look at the portal page but it strikes as not being particularly interesting! It's not that it's bad or anything it's just that it doesn't seem to carry much news. For example if you come to the forums you find all these threads talking about new flash carts that have just been released and all these tools etc but very rarely do you see these things getting a mention on the 'front' page where in my opinion people might notice it a bit more rather than having 2 or 3 topics about the same thing. At the moment there are 2 threads regarding the ecube thing because there was no single source of information on the site. There are thousands of members on this site so I don't see getting news being a problem!
