Metropolis Dawn Website affairs

Post by leftylink » Tue Sep 09, 2008 4:17 am

Urbana asked me something about the website recently, about how it's just been the same "Under Construction" message that's been sitting there for a while now. I thought I'd do something about it, and I've set up a CMS to build a website... but the problem is I don't have any content to put on it.

I don't think a vehicle description is all that helpful, because we have those in the Help files. However, I'd like to hear everyone's suggestions about what should go on the website... because I just feel that we've gotta have something!

Also, if anyone wants to actually write any content, go ahead and send me a PM, and we'll have a chat.

The UA logo's gotta be placed somewhere on the site maybe on top. I was thinking about the web layout to be like the main menu, you know, the sreen before the missions, with the settings and stuff. Except, instead of help and single-player, it would link off to FAQ, Downloads, specific factions, units, buldings, or units & buldings together, and link to the forum, and other websites. The images in the help file should be plenty. Anyway, this is just my idea. Most of the ideas look better in my head, and I'm no good at designing websites. Supplying the contents, yes, and maybe the text descriptions, but that's about it.

Agreed, it's a good idea.

A chatroom would be great, it would take a fraction of the time to have a discussion about somthing.

If anybody's good at web design and stuff like that, it might be a good idea to have a look at this topic. Like I said, I'm not good at website stuff, but if anybody else has suggestions for the site, let's hear 'em.

Well, I've gotta say the site isn't looking too bad now, and give it a few months, possibly, and it could look great. Well done. :D
