I had a look at your site and I can see, yes you could use a few things on your homepage  :P

Put stuff you like! Do you like crabs? Put some crabs there! Do you like a pome about toast? "Oh I am a toast, I roast and roast and roast, I was bread once but now Im not,  toast toast toast."... Umm sorry.. ANYWAY, a homepage is like your home, its the place that captures the vibe of your site and for.. 60% of your visitors it might be the only thing they see? So make it count!

Some things people like to put on homepages:
  • News
  • About the site
  • Web pets and adoptables
  • Links to your favorite pages
  • Your name in large letters
  • Site badges can be handy
  • A picture of me (I dunno Iv never seen anyone do this, but why not, Im pretty cool!)

I think it also depends a lot on your nav system; your using a frame style layout, so you can put anything; if you were using a non frame site you might need more navigation centric stuff (I kinda do both on my site).

Personally I'd like to see more random creative homepages, I think sometimes people try to conform to a particular idea of what a homepage needs to be and I support breaking of out that and having more fun  :4u:
