Default Re: Cleaning up the front page: a suggestion for WI staff

I don't know, I understand where you're coming from because I'm not much of an eStore shopper either (at least, not recently, anyway). So, even though I don't bother with those sections anymore, I agree with Jagular - I think there should only be one front page, for all parts of WW. Otherwise, where would you draw the line?

What if the lists of items avaliable in the eStore were in a section on the sidebar, with the upcoming pets and POTMs (only higher up). That way, it's still avaliable on the front page for everyone, but not taking up space in the 10 most-recently-added stories?

Well, it would still be on the front page, just not on the main part. My idea was like that of jenga_jane:

I agree with this idea a LOT! I do not like the Ganz e-store, it is a waste off money. But a lot of people like it. They should move all this to Wiki. Great idea! REP!

Well i am sure there are people who like reading that stuff so they have to put it up there, but i also agree with you where i dont feel like reading that stuff. I think they should just categorize it so people can skip through that stuff if they dont feel like reading it. Thanks for sharing your idea!

Of course, there's the tag cloud...

But that frustrates me. Maybe on the top, there could be a list of tags (categories), and when you click on it, you only get news on that category..

I feel that the eStore Specials and not as important threads should be deleted in time. Or maybe we can have some sort of "Recycling Section" to put them in, in case somebody wants to read them. That's a good idea.

Thanks for commenting, guys!

Ranger had the ((wonderful )) idea of having a section off to the side visible that says "Ganz has announced the items available for sale on ... For more info click here." I really like that idea!

I'm working on a test module to implement this suggestion. What I'm planning is to include any of the "Wednesday/Sat/Sun specials" that would only appear in that module, unless a new item or pet was introduced in the special, which would then get front page attention. You can see the test module on the bottom right of the front page..
