The homepage has been that damn empty WordPress page for much too long now. So what do you guys think we should do about it? The obvious and most likely option would be to have the homepage redirect to the forums and been done with it. However I'm totally open to other ideas on what to do with it. So, what do you guys think we should do? Post anything you can think of if you have a better idea then doing away with it altogether. I'm starting to want to try and build stuff again, and I'd love to give the homepage one last crack.

I think for now we should just redirect to the forums. This is the main attraction of the community-based site, after all.

Gosh, I'd love to do something with the homepage as well, either contributing through writing or some other type of media. It would be bitchen to turn CS into something more than just a forum.

But, that shit takes time, and time I do not really have right now. Well, I have some, but not enough :(

I guess the home site could be used to highlight things going on in the forum. Here are a few examples:

When a user is given an award for whatever activity.

Updates to frequently played board games (Pixelled Pink, the Google game, et cetra).

Blog post of the day, week, or month.

Big news items (new game announcements).

All of these updates could link to threads and users related to said update. This way users can get quickly caught up on all whats going on in the community and quickly hop in on discussions or whatever.

What if we did some type of cracked.com thing. Small themed lists with funny sarcastic content.

Most cracked.com articles aren't that long, and they are well supplemented with pictures. They rarely do game related ones, and while they do some research, we really wouldn't have to if they were interesting/amusing enough.

But we keep ours game themed.

Thoughts?

I'd be open to that, but the problem is we need writers. That of course was the whole purpose of the Keeper system, but I doubt many of our Keepers would be up to doing that now.

I'd be open to writing when time permits.

And when ideas come.

But, I can't speak for everyone else.
