The Front Page and More

Post by moltendorf » Sun Oct 07, 2012 8:54 am

So, what needs to change about the website? Everything.

Let's start on that "everything" with the front page. So the first bit about the new front page is that we will have two variations of it. You will be displayed one by default when you go to the front page depending on if you are signed in or not. We will call the page people see on their first visit (not signed in) as Landing and the one people see when they're returning (signed in) as Hub (if you have better ideas for names, feel free to comment). There will be some feature overlap, but for the most part they serve slightly different purposes.

So what will be on Landing?
  • Introduction to Element Town and what we are. It will not be the current introduction text. We need someone with a way with inspirational words to come up with something incredible, any givers?
  • Maybe an activity feed displaying latest and most popular threads, members signing on, new members signing up, etc.
  • Maybe an activity panel displaying who is online (and possibly where) on the website and in Mumble.
  • Maybe an intro video featuring some of the games we play (it will not automatically play); if not: we will instead include featured videos from our community YouTube channel.
  • Maybe the latest post(s) from our blog.
  • Download for custom Mumble client (no server details as the client will come preloaded with them, and will automatically connect).
  • Sign in and sign up (any objections are welcome, but I know this is our most incredibly amazing and game changing feature here).
So what will be on Hub?
  • Maybe a chat system hooked up with Mumble.
  • Latest post(s) from our blog.
  • An activity feed displaying latest and most popular threads, members signing on, new members signing up, etc.
  • An activity panel displaying who is online (and possibly where) on the website and in Mumble.
  • Featured videos from our community YouTube channel.
  • Download for custom Mumble client (no server details as the client will come preloaded with them, and will automatically connect).
I'll be adding more details to this post as we come up with them . . . :D

Code: Select all

namespace life\somewhere {
    final class moltendorf {
        private static $moltendorf = null;
        public static function getMoltendorf() {return self::$moltendorf ? self::$moltendorf : (self::$moltendorf = new moltendorf());}
        public function shoutAt($statement) {return 'Blar...';}
    }

    call_user_func(function () {
        if ($moltendorf = moltendorf::getMoltendorf()) echo $moltendorf->shoutAt('Go back to your coding corner!');
    });
}
