Updating the front page

Postby Cuteboys » Tue Mar 10, 2009 8:43 pm

Been afew months since it was updated.

It'd be a good idea to update when new figures ship to stores etc.

A lot of sites with web forum communities tend to be mainly front doors for the forum, and everything happens on the forum. In a way of speaking, the forum is the site.

Plus, I'm pretty sure a lot of us directly link to the forum. I actually stumbled across TFNZ via a link to the forum (from a blog comment on Shortpacked, I think), and was a member for a while before discovering there was a front page! :D

Not knocking the idea though. Anything to get more folks to look at the main page more frequently would only be a good thing.

We have a frontpage?

I'm surprised someone still remembered we have a frontpage! I know it's not been updated for a while, but like everyone else has said in the thread, no one really looks at the main page - it's just a gateway to the forums, if they themselves aren't automatically bookmarked. Hardly anyone uses the main page, though it's great to see some still do!

just found this thread :P

While i agree that front pages are just gateways to the forums, the fact that we have a "latest transformers news" bit on the front page is what bothers me... Its fine for those who have bookmarked the main page, but for new visitors it might look a bit dumb if our "latest transformers news" is a good few years old... maybe just remove the whole thing and just have a blurb about our little community?
do, or do not. There is no try

Better to have a link, or snippets from the top stories from the news/rumours forum and sightings forum?

I've been trying to get that updated recently but i've run into a few technical difficulties hence I haven't updated it in a while.


Main reason it does get updated sparingly is the fact no one tends to visit the rest of the website anyway, it's all done via the boards. I'm working on a total revamp of the website which hopefully can be done up the next few days

If I get around into sorting that sightings feed, that'd be the best thing to put on the front page. Curse you, lack of time/effort/energy/vitamin C.
