We have a frontpage!

Post #1 by admin » Fri Jun 13, 2014 1:37 pm

I'm proud to announce that after 1.5years of hard work and theexceptional contributions of a large amount of volunteer webdesigners, we have now a spanking brand new frontpage.

It can be accessed at frontpage for now, this may change once we have more published content.

We have one volunteer editor (thanks imopen2!) but we are looking for other volunteers for managing the frontpage, so feel free to express your interest.

If you want to contribute with an article, post a thread here and we'll go from there.

Thanks and Godspeed

Should we upload MTGO footage? It would be very tedious for the frontpage editor too work on solo though... (its tedious even for me just too place them on Youtube :P).

We can put whatever you guys want as long as it fits in an html page. what exactly is a task for our forum strategists, so lets discuss ideas. We can also link to the best channels we may have in twitch, etc...

A few things: the frontpage has a 'score' system that decides the order the articles are shown. Articles with a lower score apear first at the top while higher numbers "sink" to the bottom. Its very easy for an editor to rearrange the frontpage articles.

2. Don't forget to add at the end of the article: discuss the article here: link

and make the appropriate thread

How are we advertising the frontpage? I'm imagine most of our frequent forum users have it bookmarked which bypasses the frontpage completely.

Once we will have more content and feel confident enough with it the frontpage will be diestoremval.com and the forums will be forums.diestoremoval.com

I'm curious if you guys are ok with updating a topic daily (Monday - Friday) - or if you can somehow give me permission too do so myself.

I'll like too continually update the WonderMeow Animation page whenever I release a good one (which won't happen until another 2-3 weeks) and too start up a page called:

That seems exactly like the kind of stuff we want to promote in the frontpage.

Look, lets make a deal: If I make a tutorial post on how to post and edit an article here, would you agree to maintain your article in the frontpage? It seems so much better than having a middleman you would need to aske everytime you need to update the page

Working with HTML is fairly straightforward once you know a few things (how to nest tags, what tags are, where to look for help). I can help by PM or in this thread.

If you search "Mono Blue Tron Primer" on Google, we're the 5th result. We should update that primer since the deck is becoming more popular now since it's a cheap deck to play in Modern

Some quick design comments on the frontpage:

The browser tab icon/favicon should have a transparent background. It looks weird to have a white square with the skull in it. (this icon should also be translated into every sub page of the website.)

diestoremoval.com should be white or smaller, it competes with the logo too much for my eyes attention. The tagline "healthier alternative should etc" should be brought up closer to the diestoremoval

The outer glow on all the header text NEEDS to be removed. It's a complete eyesore, and does nothing but "cheapen" our aesthetic.

Also, the drop down menus when you hover over each header, all breakout in different directions, I recommend making these all consistent.

No, no these are valuable comments.

Some things I can fix, others would need a dedicated webdesigner, but I'm gonna look into at least implementing some of your comments into the css design. Thanks for the feedback

1) I've put the
logo in white as you suggested.
2) I've tried to get rid of the outer glow, I gave up. If someone with webdesigner skills can check the css of the page with firebug or something, let me know which are the proper .css tags to be modified.
3) I've updated the favicon

that's it for now

Huuum, maybe its not your fault, but just that you are not seeing the same menus by not having administrative rights.

Try this direct link to edit articles instead and tell me if it works (replaces step 2)
