The Front Page
« on: March 26, 2015, 09:30:16 am »
Am I the only one bothered by the infamous front page that since I've been on this forum, left for two years, and came back, still hasn't been created (even a slight placeholder would be nice?) If there is some technical issue I'm fine with it, but most of my family are experts on marketing and I know that the front page turns people away. People don't like plain white screens, they want something that shows this site is active and welcoming, just a thought.

Trust me, I'm bothered by it too  :fox-:P:
Its just one of those things that aren't really priority; we get enough new people that we don't really think about the front page being messy, I guess
We have an actual logo almost done, so that'll probably go up once that's finished, at least

The Logo would be nice, just something that isn't "we're in the middle of a massive overhaul"

May I suggest removing the front page entirely? It serves no purpose whatsoever, unless it is something required by smf?

Should be possible to just redirect it to the forum index page I would think. I agree that the front page is just annoying at this point. It doesn't really have any content on it.

Maybe a small FAQ about what the site is about could spice it up a little bit  :fox-:):

I don't really find the front page annoying at all, I have the forum bookmarked to avoid it and when I search up the site I always make sure I click the forum instead of the front page. But when I end up on the front page it's still not a big deal because I just click on the forum, takes a second :fox-:P: it's definitely not the most appealing looking but serves its purpose

I'm not sure if I'm more bothered by the symbolism I read under the page being the way it is, the white background, or the overall sparseness. Then again, to say too much about it would be hypocritical on my part.

I have a question actually, What if us the community put together something we could use as a front page? I was thinking of like a collaborative work between some of the amazing artists and staff members to make something?  Of course anything we made could be vetoed of course. Just an idea to toss you guys

To tell you the truth before this topic I had never even seen the front page, so really it is not a big deal

I've actually been tossing around some un-related collab ideas in my head, but this is a cool idea too :fox-:P:
The only thing is the amount of planning it would require

I'd love a community collab front page! Anyone who wants to participate could make something for it. Who else thinks so?
