Maybe you also got some ideas to improve the look and structure of our main page. The idea behind this thread is to make the forum easier to handle for newcomers and increase the possibility that those visit us regularly and also post their ideas to improve our community.

I start with my first idea which is an adjustment.


This is a gaming community. People come here to relax. If you start an argument you will get kicked.

Quid pro quo.

Put the servertime clock above the server information:



Other ideas:
-put direct links to the most relevant threads (like Events) on the mainpage
-

I have an idea to adjust:

In the top left menu of the home page I would leave only the topic forum, tutorials and downloads just that other things would leave in a forum topic.

There should probably be a brief introduction of what FHSW is/what it features near the top of the homepage along with the download links. Perhaps a vanilla BF1942 download link as well to simplify the process - there's currently download links all over the place, variously on the moddb Downloads page (linked in the sidebar), and the FAQ.

I'd agree; also the Facebook page doesn't need to be that far up the page, and could probably be shuffled to a lower position on one of the sidebars.

Either this, or if the Next FHSW Event header is kept then a link to the Events thread could be placed there instead. Regardless, server events need to be prominently displayed on the front page to indicate that the community is still active.

I'd keep the FAQ and FHSW News there as well, actually. Then you could have the "Latest FHSW News' section on the main page trimmed down to one or two articles and images only.

It's true, I had not thought of that.

a little bit more down on the side could be an area that introduce a by chance unit (Tank, plane what ever) from FHSW Wikia and the Wikia itself.

I just implemented some of the suggested changes. My rights on editing the main page are pretty limited however, Stefan is still the only one with full rights.

How do you guys feel about changing the lower part of the mainpage?

The "latest FHSW news" are there for ages now and I think we should remove them and change the design. It should be less information.

My first ideas are:
-move the information box (I deleted that box since the information it contained were outdated)
-news or whatever we will put there should approximately end were I drew the red line

Put a big fat video in the middle of the page with footage showing exactly what FHSW is about, along with a quick installation guide or something, including info on mappacks and 4GB patch with download links. Maybe even a videos/media section other than the small "featured video" on the right which I didn't even notice until recently.

What about adding Discord server widget right below Teamspeak widget? We've got quite a lot of people there already.
Here is the HTML code:
Code
<iframe src="https://discordapp.com/widget?id=342744556497797120&theme=dark" width="350" height="500" allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Who can edit Menu?
Please remove "Guestbook" and "FHSW Wikipedia" and give the latter one an own windown down here:

Only Stefan can edit the contents of the "Menu" box. I would have removed Guestbook a long time ago if I had the rights. sad 

@crazy: Yea you have to go with the times. I didn't create the channel but I added the widget that radio posted a couple of days ago.

Although I don't use it much I feel like Discord has several advantages: You don't have to install a 3rd party program, it has a better chat and you can customize it a lot. For example I've set up a bot now that should automatically send a message 30 minutes before an event starts.
