Default What Happened to the Main Page? An explanation of the recent changes.

You may have noticed that the main page has undergone some changes in the past few days. In this thread I will try to explain why the changes were made and what to do if you are now lost when seeing the Main Page.

Why were the changes made?
The main reason why the SysOps decided that a new Main Page was needed was because the WIki has been growing at an ever increasing rate and the Main Page was quickly becoming out-dated and also very large and cumbersome. It is impossible to place links to all of the pages on the main page so a new plan had to be made. The former Main Page had remained relatively the same for a few months so it was determined that it was in desperate need for an overhaul.

What visual changes were made?
We decided that while we were making structural changes to the page we would make some visual changes as well to just make everything look brand new. These changes are of much significance and I am not going to waste time (and virtual paper) explaining the visual changes. For those of you who are interested here is a comparison picture of what the page looked like on May 24 and then what it looked like on May 25

Spoiler: show
Please Note: These pictures were taken in the Firefox 3 Web Browser. The page may display differently in other browsers or older versions of Firefox.

What structural changes were made?

The main structural changes that were made involved the links. Many links were removed from the Main Page. These links were moved to Index Pages. An example of an Index Page is: Clubhouse Portal - Webkinz Insider Wiki
Some of these index pages are not visually finished but all the links that were removed from the Main Page can be found on one of these index pages. Below I have explained where they all went.
Events is WW
Pet Lists
Dressing Pets - That's Styling
Decorating Rooms
Entertainment
Clubhouse
The index pages are protected from editing as their receive a high volume of traffic. If you notice any mistakes on these pages or think something should be added or removed please contact a SysOp and we will consider the changes.

In addition to moving many of the links around the SysOps also re-organized the page a bit. You will notice that some of the content that was formerly under Webkinz World Info has been moved to Webkinz Pets. You will also notice that a new contests box has been created and has been placed next to the Featured Articles Box. This new contest box will display information about Webkinz World, Webkinz Newz, and Official WI Contests.

I am still confused!

If you have read this thread and still am confused about something post here and we will try and clear up your confusion.






-Yours, ClaraZ25 on behalf of the WIki Staff.

Love the changes that our SysOps made (I had no part in it, so they deserve ALL of the credit) -- canonymous, ClaraZ25 and monkeecj -- and also a brilliant thread by Clara explaining this to all of our users!! Bravo!!

I also have to give a round of applause to FIA she let us know her opinion and came up with some great ideas as well. It was a real team effort. Thank you Justin!
