I concur, I think we need to think up some things for the main page so there's stuff there that can actually be updated monthly.

something like an in-depth toy review from some of the members, or collection spotlights and mini-interviews with the members [eg pick a member to spotlight that month, and get another member to come up with a couple of special questions.. and we'd have some standards questions that would always be asked]..

That or we just make it go straight to the forums and be gone with everything else

Well, personally, I'm down for the idea of collection spotlights/ mini interviews with collectors. and Random selection toy reviews

Anyone else got some ideas?

I'll agree that it's a bit slow on the updates, so I was thinking that when the transfer occurs, which should be over the next few days, I will hire two 'news reporters'. Basically to keep the front page active with news.


Also will be looking for a new board layout but don't feel confident enough to make a layout myself, so if anyone who has skills in photoshop and web designs wants to make something not for us, i'd love to hear from you too.

As for 'spotlighting' people on the forums, I think it's something we could definitely do, but we don't have a very large customizing community though we could expand it a bit further into collections/contributions to TFNZ etc.

I'm thinking it would be good if we could get a standard design across the main site and the forums, so it all looks to be part of the one site. If someone wants to do all the graphics and design work, I may be able to hack up a template from it in my spare time for the forum

First up, you're likely to need a CMS sorta-thingee if you're gonna actually be updating the thing. what will the new hosting location actually support? There's several good ones that can pretty much run on PHP with a MySQL Back-end alone. Or a asp.net/MSSQL based one if the web-host is windowz based.

If you watch Titanic backwards, It is a heart warming tale of a ship which jumps out of the water & saves lots of drowning people.
