Well these days many forums have portals. I myself have never have liked portals, I always find myself just skipping the portal and always going straight to the forum. I find portals very annoying, and see it as a distraction stopping you from going to the forum. Im sure the forum owners have their reasons for using them, but I have never preferred it. To me it defeats the purpose of a forum.. why not just have the forum by itself.. whats the point of it, most never use the portals anyway and im sure they just skip straight to the forum like me, and also see it as a distraction. Do you like Portals?
