Feedback - Frontpage link to the forums | COMPLETED

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

Feedback - Frontpage link to the forums | COMPLETED

Postby DesuStrike » Tue Oct 29, 2013 2:29 am

Even though I think it is a good idea to add the forum to the contact page, I think it is a bad idea to remove the 'direct link' from the frontpage menu.
It might just be my personal mindset but I had a bit of a hard time finding the link to the forum after you made the changes. The contact page somehow doesn't seem to be the first place I would look for a forum link. Most websites have the link to their forums on the frontpage and I think you should add one, too.

I think everyone that is activly taking part in the forums is a gain for this project and I fear some people might not find their way in here with the present layout in place.

just my 5 cents, though... :angel:
home is where the artillery hits

I agree that there should be an easy way to access the forum from the main website. I believe CryptoStorm plan was to keep the forum away from the main website or maybe they simply forgot to link the forum on the main website.

Either way, let's hope CryptoStorm's team will take our suggestion and link the forum on the main website.

We were doing some cleanup edits on the site over the weekend. If you've ever maintained a production website with a decent-sized team each helping out at the same time... yeah, that. It can get a bit hectic - think version control... or lack of it.

We're planning to move to a /SVN-based model as us old salts tend to think in those terms; for now, it's "tell other team members you're working on a page" style version control. Yikes! :-P

There's certainly no effort to decouple the forum from the website - exactly the reverse, in fact. We try to keep the website itself more or less a "directory," with detailed information here in the forum. As the forum enables much more direct, ongoing dialogue with the community than does a static "website," this forum structure fits more closely with a dynamic model.

Anwyay, your feedback totally makes sense to me and since it's mid-morning with nobody else apparently making edits to production code, here goes...

edited to add: done; let me know if you see any additional bugs in the quick fix I've put in place until the proper folks have a chance to take a look over things.
