Wiki Main Page

Post by Luca1189 » 13 Dec 2009, 13:58

I've made a new version of the Main Page of the wiki http://wiki.themanaworld.org/index.php/ ... /Main_Page
Do you like it?
There is something you suggest to change?
Can I change the current Main Page with my version?

NB
It's ok to copy the "Project description" here?
Have I to put "Screenshots" under "Main Link for players"? (Edit: yes, i changed!)

I have some criticism:

1. Project description on the main page: Nice idea, but it takes too much space. Should be linked to but not be written there.
2. The font size in the navigation section is very small and thus hard to read.
3. Screenshots on the front page: Generally I think it's a nice idea but they should be placed in a more discreet manner. Currently they are dominating the layout too much.
4. The page has a very ugly layout and scrolls sideways on the low resolution of my screen (1024x768). Can you please try to fix this by avoiding elements with fixed width whenever possible? I made you a screenshot: http://img260.imageshack.us/img260/5462 ... ard01o.png
5. I think it generally puts too much emphasis on the players and too few on the developers. The wiki is mostly a development tool at the moment and the front page should reflect this.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

Maybe it is time to create 2 main pages, one for dev's and one for players.

That's what i meant...so i'll put it under! :) now i change!

Edit:
* Why don't you tell me the Main Links for the developers, so I split the links also for developers!?!?
* Do you really want to enlarge the font for the other links?
* Have I to delete the Screenshots from the Main Page?
...so you prefer the current Main Page?
...so what do you want to change from the current Main Page?
