    remove the cloud and the Latest Posts to the right.

    Instead put something like latest screenshots where 'Latest Posts' are.

    The menu for livescoreboard, servers and what not could also be moved further down under the TS. Its a lot of "noise letters" in the eyes of newcomers together with the 'latest posts'.

    Simple is good

    Menu should stay top left
    That's where the help page is

    Ideally you should have everything important to a newcomer viewable on clicking onto the homepage
    They dont need to see the server stuff or even half of the announcements
    They need to see
    the top image
    Shoutbox
    Links bar
    Menu
    Welcome text

    Anything else can be moved down screen

    Bert is right. Someone who is new to the sight won't have interest in quite a few things on the home page.

    Perhaps we should move the Servers and Articles to their own pages. Add tabs for both on top. And if use the Headlines idea that I suggested earlier, we can still convey the same information on the homepage with much less clutter.
    Taking the road less travelled...

    I say we cut down on the number of tabs before we add to it. Who actually uses half of those tabs?

    And the other half virtually never

    hellooo ?????

    ya all feel bored? ya dont have to do other things? like filling servers
    this thread isnt called "i wish something"

    thx for all your ideas, but i wont change the site only that new guests or new members can handle it.
    as i said already, the new ones are not that unskilled as ya think
    when i compare our with other websites, our is still structured and we not runing much addons.
    i think, after 2 days also the biggest complete nooblet can deal with our website.

    alright, to your ideas:
    then make the text different colours
    the welcome message could be all blue
    and the other announcements could be
    orange etc with a red emphasis if needed
    i dont want, that our website looks like a colour box
    as ya can see we only using 4 colors
    white: normal text
    blue: article titel, links, more highlighted as white
    orange: headlines, highlighted stuff
    red: important stuff

    I can turn the welcome message into a picture with a different background colour
    normaly a good idea, bert
    thats what i am talking about! not only talking about an idea, also got a solution for it, thx
    for the php code, but ya gave yourself the answer already:
    the only issue with this is that an image is scalable so will get cut off if the user makes the
    window smaller. a lot peeps will get probs with the site, like niii, he only got an 11" screen lol

    I have an idea. The articles below the Welcome article, what if we remove them, and replace them with a single box called Headlines, which will just have the title.
    For example
    Timeless 07 goes first in the world
    Timeless 09/10 - Joke Servers
    Donation reports 2011/03
    NEW Timeless Server
    Donation Report
    Each with a link to the related article. That would significantly reduce the clutter.
    We could even have this a scrolling marquee on top, then it would easily get attention, and we can use it in case we want to get a message across to our members.
    Perhaps we should move the Servers and Articles to their own pages. Add tabs for both on top. And if use the Headlines idea that I suggested earlier, we can
    still convey the same information on the homepage with much less clutter.
    fyi, the website isnt a simple html site, its an system, a lot of things runs
    automaticly and we couldnt change. when we create an new article it also create autom.
    an thread in the forum.
    what we can do, is reduce the number of the articles from 7 to 4
    the idea of the front page and article is, to give our memebers the newest important infos.
    also shows the site as active, i would wish, that more peeps writing some intersting articles
    (shows at moderators), about new game, bf updates,... but looks like they spend there
    time to disturb me btw all members can write news in the forum which we can
    promote to an article.

    how about only having one article for the donation reports?
    there should be some way of doing that
    sure we can, but i dont want. this guys who donate for timeless deserve nornaly
    more then this.

    smaller donation box, updated with, say, the 10 latest donors.
    good idea, would be an additional option

    Another suggestion I have is regarding the Forum Last Post box. Don't we already see the latest posts next to the chatbox?
    So if my assumption that they both show the same information is correct, I think the Last Post box is redundant, and we could do away with it.
    some like the latest posts showing in the shout box, some in the forum last post.
    for a quick info i always check the forum last post, because i only see the newest threads.
    when i wanna see who answered in this threads i check the shout box. the only issue in the
    forum last post is, that all can see the threads even they dont have the permission to read it.
    i dont find any other addon for it yet.
     
    remove the cloud and the Latest Posts to the right.
    remove? sounds good, ya can remove your double post

    Instead put something like latest screenshots where 'Latest Posts' are.
    here ya can search for it: www.vbulletin.org, when ya find a good addon, lemme know.

    Ideally you should have everything important to a newcomer viewable on clicking onto the homepage
    They dont need to see the server stuff or even half of the announcements
    They need to see
    the top image
    Shoutbox
    Links bar
    Menu
    Welcome text
    Anything else can be moved down screen
    i dont see any difrent on our site right now, all things are on the top anything else down

    i am wondering why ya dont talk about the "latest video" ?
    we runing this addon since 1.2011 and i see only 18 videos in it, we still need it?

    maybe we should think about how we can get more members on our website first, before we
    assume they couldnt handle it

    thx again for all your ideas
