I've noticed and checked out the various text links (Home, Forums, School, etc..., and Home, Gallery, Browse, Blogs, etc...) but there isn't a direct link to the CA Store in the Forums that I noticed....it's only on the Home page. To be honest, I rarely go to the Home page but tend to proceed directly to the thread I've got a subscription to, or just go to the Forums section directly.
In other words, when I wanted to buy the Chicks of CA calendar, I couldn't immediately find the CA Store...well, it wasn't one click away from the Lounge thread.
Might be a nice way to drive a bit more traffic to the CA Store (like there is for DONATE) if there was also a direct link in the CA forums area....
Just a thought.
