Tuism said:BTW I don't think we need as much space for news. I think games and events should hold prime real estate, along with the welcome content. I know it dominates the centre right now but I think it could easily be a lot smaller, I was following the template. What do you guys think?
Tuism said:That's a workaround which requires creating the same content in forum page and WP post, instead of creating just forum post then setting to show on homepage under whichever category.
dislekcia said:I don't think there should be news at all. TBH. What's the value of news? Is news ever going to be something other than advertising an event (already covered by events).

Nope, you'll create a WP post and it will automatically create a corresponding forum post. We could do it the other way around, but then you basically have a text-only input - no screenshots, no venue gps coordinates or anything rich in any way.
Tuism said:And if something in the forum post needs to be updated? (happens fairly often) Would you edit the post and edit the WP post so the front page isn't out of date?And I assume we have to set a break point in the WP article so that on the front page it only shows a part of the whole article, which is the forum post.

dammit said:So, to totally put a spanner in the works, have we looked at other association websites globally? For example: http://nzgda.com/ The NZ game dev society has a page showing off the games made.... the forum is less of the focus.Also, when is this happening?

francoisvn said:do you think you'll be able to complete the changes, or do you think you'll be short on time? I was under the impression that being short on time was the primary reason things hadn't progressed further, which is quite understandable for a volunteer-based solution, but seems like I might have been wrong.
EvanGreenwood said:In that case is it possible to have the landing page display "Recent Discussions" and remove some categories from the list? (like @Elyaradine suggested). So for the time being we would at least be burying meta-arguments a little bit.
