Logged-In Homepage Answered
The homepage of Instructables gets a big makeover today, you may have noticed!
If you're logged out, you'll continue to see the same rotator with huge, beautiful images that you know and love.
If you're logged in, you're going to see your customized feed (if available) or "top picks" (if not).
Top picks are the same projects that appear on the logged-out version of the homepage, so if it's the variety of fun projects that keeps you coming for more, there should be nothing lost.
We've had terrific feedback on the "feed" related features -- people love the personalization of Instructables, and come back for more when we're able to show them exactly what they came for in the first place. Now, we're dialing it to 11.
We know the homepage is a big driver of traffic for many new projects, so there may be concerns that projects on the homepage will get fewer views. We don't anticipate this will be substantial, since most visitors to the homepage are logged out.
We hope you like it!
