Ok this still needs some major work.. but lets discuss what I have. I don't like the bullets and I think this needs at least one graphic or a background image. Should we color the headings? If so same for all, different for each? --User:Hinney|Hinney 00:20, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

At first glance, it's not bad. The colored headers work for me, at least for a transitional front page. Sure it can, and likely will, be improved but it's not bad. I'll need time to give more constructive feedback but one thing I notice is the "Help us Edit" link which might be more obvious as "How to Contribute" or something similar. Many visitors don't know what a wiki is so using the most plain or obvious language there will help more people be able to contribute. Maybe I'm wrong and "Edit" is obvious too. :D --User:Hellis|Hellis 02:13, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

Agreed - Looks good; and "How to Contribute" sounds better. Bullet points look fine to me but you could alway br instead. On layout I'd perhaps go for:
Game guide / Character / World
Quests / Game play / Crafting
Monster play / Social / Other
as the order, trying to balance the stuff new players will want to see first with the most useful!, but that's maybe putting MP too low down. User:DancesInTrees|DancesInTrees 02:21, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

It looks very nice, but I'd probably move Instances from World to Quests. The colored headlines look good and I agree that some images and a background would be nice. Perhaps we --User:Hinney|Hinney 12:48, 23 March 2007 (PDT)should get a new logo for the upper left corner (I know this isnt actually Main Page-talk) --User:Tjikke|Tjikke 04:51, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

  • I like the new layout also, but would like to remind about lore section =) we should probably resolve the issue with it (as in: "to be or not to be") and the best place would probably be Talk:Lore... --User:Xander|Xander 05:09, 23 March 2007 (PDT)
I did a few minor tweaks, note the major change of quests title to lore, any more thoughts on the ordering? I would like to keep character and monster play side by side, either horizontally or vertically.
Game guide / Character / World
Game play / Monster Play / Lore
Crafting / Social / Other
I think we might want to consider holding off putting the Game Guide at the key spot since it really is lacking in content. --User:Hinney|Hinney 11:04, 23 March 2007 (PDT)
If you call Quests Lore then I know I, for one, would be very puzzled, if seeing this for the first time, as to where quests were.User:DancesInTrees|DancesInTrees 11:55, 23 March 2007 (PDT)
I'm beginning to think my tic-tac-toe page is a bit busy ... Should we consider merging a few headings or is it ok? --User:Hinney|Hinney 16:59, 23 March 2007 (PDT)
