    [Suggestion] Link back to Weasyl from Tumblr/Forum

    The forum and Tumblr pages both link to each other and Twitter but none of them actually link back to the main site.

    Obviously on Twitter this isn't really an option as it's a fixed layout but links on the other two would save people having to visit their bookmarks or retype the main-site address to return there. Even if it were just to make the Weasyl logo at the top of the forum redirect to http://Weasyl.com that'd be great


    (Edit: Just realized the Tumblr does redirect, but the forum doesn't. Whoops!)

    the 'home' link at the top of the forums links to the weasyl mainsite. I've mistakenly clicked it quite frequently trying to get to the front of the forums.

    I just figured out why I missed this.

    When I reinstalled windows I forgot to install my graphics drivers, so I've been running as lower resolution and it had gone off the side. I moved to a new monitor at the same time so I never noticed the difference.

    Mega derp on my behalf, sorry!

    I think the confusing part is that "Home" goes to the main site whereas clicking the Weasyl logo brings you to the forums index.

    "Home" is referring to the home site, which is www.weasyl.com - we didn't really know what else to call it without it looking too awkward, so it was kind of left without a name change from the default tab name. If you have any suggestions for what you think we should rename it to, we would be glad to hear them. c:

    "site" might work better for some people. Ive also accidently clicked it to get to the forum home page.

    We were gonna call it "Main site" or something at one point but "Site" could work. I'll discuss it with Eminoxic sometime and bounce ideas around and ask him his opinion on that. Thanks! If you have any other suggestions for it, lemme know. :3

    "Return" could work as most people will have arrived here from the main site.

    Just bouncing another idea of the wall to see if it bounces back

    I see what you're saying, and it does make sense, but I actually have both the forums and mainsite on my bookmarks toolbar so I always just open each one in its own tab rather then going to the forums through the main site link. In that case seeing a Return button would be kinda confusing.

    Fair enough. It can't be an image, can it?
