New home page idea

Do it?

  1. Do it faggot

  2. Fine as it is

  1. New home page idea

    Our current home page is pretty shit really - a wall of About Us text followed by outdated and unorganised news.

    I think it would be much better to have:

    Left (main) column:

    • Giant servers list including map images, player counts, ip, server name, fold-out player list, etc.
    • Split into 2 sub-columns: Top 10 HLstatsX players, Top 10 PropHunt players
    • A more concise "About Us" with some nice TF2 related images floating beside the text.
    (in that order)

    Right column: As it is now, minus the server list.

    And no news - our news forum and the vBulletin notices system are more than enough.

    And regardless of how this poll goes, I will be introducing a sidebar on the forumhome page (that's not the home home page) with recent posts, the current servers widget and some other stuff.

  5. What happened to the DarkChat thingy which was on the old forum? I miss that :(

    On an unrelated note, this message showed when signing in today:
    The file C:\wamp\www\ is missing. This would indicate your forum is not set to save CSS on the filesystem. If you are certain it is, try running Compress CSS again.
    To prevent issues, your forum is currently running without optimised CSS as a fallback.
