This thread is to discuss what should go on the front page, to make it as useful and active as possible.

At the moment, we have the following on the front page:

Latest Raid Kills
Raid Guild Rankings
Arena Rankings (Not Working)
Latest Posts
Blue Watch (Not working)
Chat Box
News Updates


Please list the things you'd like to see on the page, ranked in order of importance (we can't fit everything on the page, so we might have to prioritise).

Arena Rankings
Where is the best place to get those? (except Armory)

Latest Posts
Anyone read this?

Chat Box
Should we incorporate this into the forum instead of frontpage? Or is it good there?

Blue Watch
Put them in the forum instead of on frontpage?

Some ideas for additional things:

Realm events from wowprogress.com
Guild recruitment

Just to add little something to the starting discussion..

Anyone read this?

Yes. Well, atleast when I used to visit the forum more frequently.

Chat Box

Yes. Having shit & viagra-adds spammed on the frontpage isn't really necessary, in my opinion.

Its been a while since I checked, but isn't it down most of the time?

If this was true you'd never be able to get reliable information anywhere : b It's mostly reliable enough that you can do an extract once a day and get information, you'd probably have an update job set for every few hours just in case though

I use latest post alot, find it quite handy. The lack of news is pretty depressing :p

Would be fun to hve some sort of flash mini game on the front page, with only members competing or something like that. tryin to beat each others scores if we get bored ingame

*edit* doesn't have to be front page, could be changed weekly etc etc

Could also include links to regular shadowsong blogs (if we went down that route).

I actually like the chatbox on the front page but would obviously be beneficial to get the spammers out of there as well.

Regarding latest posts: When the forum was heavily active they moved quite a lot, so maybe put a few more than the first 5 new posts? Was difficult to keep up :P

Okay, keep latest posts and chatbox.

Re: Games - sure, but maybe in another section.

Any more ideas for what would go on the front page?

Recent popular topics, latest polls, updated/new blogs could all have a small area underneath or beside the news.
