You'll find that the numbers are really low.
The Members page on xenForo is no different. Isn't this a waste of valuable space? Are we missing out on an opportunity here?
The #1 rule when placing a link on the main navigation is to add links to sections that the visitor frequently visits. In other words, sections that have a lot of traffic. More than likely these are sections that you want people to visit - sections that have fresh content.
What if the Members page was a central hub for member activity such as Groups, Photos, News Feed, Online Members, etc? How much more valuable would this space become?
We currently don't have a Groups or Gallery addon but these are features that will definitely come either by 3rd party or by xenForo themselves. Wouldn't it be cool if we can add these features to the Members page via hooks?
Another issue I have with the Members page is that it lists all members by default. In time, everyone will be introduced to members with funny looking names - all starting with non-alphanumeric names. 99.9% of the time these members are not even active.
With a central hub, I recommend listing Online Members (avatars). The thinking behind this is that we promote those who are currently active - the more active you are the more exposure you get.
For those who are visual learners, here's a mockup of what I described above...
Remember the goal is to create a section (page) that is "valuable" to us (individually). The central hub can be different for everyone.
I call it Community Central ) I didn't know what to call it)
