Well, the news homepage is not the forums, so that's a big difference right there for investigating this issue. The Tango link on Castanet's homepage is meant to take you to The Tango's homepage.

That's probably what's happening. Just figured it would work better if it took you directly to what you clicked on.
Sorry didn't mean to cause you a bunch of work over nothing. It was just a bit of a peeve.

I don't visit Tango much because of it. By god a person is given just so many clicks a day, and if you use 'em all up on one site, well, then you're screwed when you get to important stuff, like answering a post in the Bickering Room. That's just hard science.

I'll pass this on to The Tango team as a suggestion/complaint.

Thanks!

I agree, and it's annoying. Right now, you see a link to "Time Waster" on the home page. I don't click on the links anymore because of it.

When I click it lands me here http://thetango.net/ when I should land here http://thetango.net/2015/01/06/time-was ... ry-6-2015/

Same reason why they break up their galleries into multiple pages - just to get more views.
Sarcasm is like a good game of chess. Most people don't know how to play chess.

The galleries are usually only 2 pages at the most -- I believe we had 3 once or twice before, but that's it. The primary reason they are spread out over 2 pages is so the larger galleries load a little quicker.

As I've already mentioned, I'll bring this up with The Tango staff. Originally, it was just going to be a boring link to The Tango site - instead of that, it was decided to show a bit of the latest content as well.
