Time for a new theme :)
As we are switching over to a more plugin based theme model this theme will not come with a slider, you will of course be able to add one via a plugin as we will offer a home page with a large full width widget area for those diehard "gotta have a slider" - but based on recent usability testing sliders are not good for conversions and are often not even looked at by users - hence no slider by default - time to step things up ;)
Follow along for progress shots.

no slider = awesomeness
@Chris Kelley you betcha brother
This is very nice, cannot wait to see progress!
Thx @Mike Moloney :)
Dude, this is looking awesome!
Thanks @Aaron Ng - keep following for further updates as I travel along the theme path again.
@Jonathan Atkinson This is interesting, but I would love to know how or where you got that information from regarding sliders not being able to convert well due to users not even looking at them.
Sure @Adam Roberts - here's one article that's a great read with examples of large sites that have also recently removed sliders due to low conversions - I believe nba.com have also just removed theirs - http://conversionxl.com/dont-use-automatic-image-sliders-or-carousels-ignore-the-fad/
@Jonathan Atkinson Thanks for that!! Some arguments going off in the office now haha.
@Adam Roberts heres something to fuel the fire http://www.useit.com/alertbox/response-times.html
