Default Ze (new) Front Page Ziscussion Thread

so, what does everyone think about http://hamumu.com/index.php ???
-Discuss

My views are:
Pro:

I'm really digging the featured game widget, especially the random quotes taken from the game's comments. the T-shirt of the month is a nice addition as well in my opinion, because I'm always forgetting about the Hamumu shop-thing.

Con:

I find it looks a little cluttered, and i feel the big "Hamumu Clubhouse" sign to be a bit overkill with the exact same thing written 3cm away in the corner.

Pros: Looks totally cool.

Cons: needs space between the featured game image and the quotes, I can't read them. Also, the JOIN NOW bit should disappear if you are already signed in.

Pros:

*You have to push a big red button to join! Everybody loves pushing those big red buttons
*The quotes under the game**

Cons:

*At some point I pressed the big red button and it brought me to the sign up screen, and now it says that I've already signed up. Not sure if me getting on there in the first place was a bugged as I was logged in, but yeah.

That's all that pops to mind when I see it.


**They kind of look weird the way they are right now

It is a bit cluttered, but I love the quotes and the shirt.

I like it, but things overlap in my browser. The BTD video overlaps some of the Clubhouse sign, the "Watcha wanna do" text overlaps the BTD and T-shirt of the month box a bit, The "Sign Up" button overlaps the Tip of the Iceberg text, and the Tip of the Iceberg text is pushed into the T-shirt box, overlapping the "Get" in "So get this one while you can!"

..Like so! http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/2441/oberlap.jpg

Of course, it's still beta. Can't expect everything to be perfect.

That's a very skinny browser! Are you running 800x600?

Since the image is 1024x700, I assume he's using that resolution. It overlapped for me as well, but I realised that was because the site was at more than 100% zoom. Anyone who has this problem should try resetting their zoom and see if it persists :3

Nah, I reset my zoom, still the same as in the picture. Though if I zoom out a bit I can make it look normal.

I too feel it's a little cluttered. Maybe make the middle sign the biggest thing on the page, then line up the other things on either side of it.

Red signup button should probably go to http://hamumu.com/signup.php not http://hamumu.com/forum/signup.php

Also, I think you're forgetting there are still tons out there not with massive widescreens that will see the website incorrectly. ex. regen

In the future a seperate homepage tailored for those logged in would be nice.

Ideas for such:
A proper What's New... a small block for say 2-3 lines of new site additions, new games, or important notices for those who don't attentively watch the journal and forums

An expanded combination of "Have you played today?" and "Whatcha wanna do?" for those logged in:

No signup button obviously

For starters, the one thing the front page can use is a bit more attention to who's signed in and who's signed out. At the moment, it's fine ... but only for a non-member.

I'm impressed with today's additions and changes such as some fun stats at the bottom, new header image and the replacement of Sign Up with the Have you...? box.

In the future though, I'd still love to see some form of the second example I posted earlier in place... assuming that data is possible to pull.

Again, I think the most important thing should be significantly larger than the rest, so the viewer's eyes go there first and foremost - in this case, probably "Hang Out With Us!"

It's a bit off-centre, but it's definitely an improvement.

Much better than it was - if you have a widescreen. I don't. Big improvements, but I like Justin's ideas. It's way to cluttered right now, though.

Yeah, on my 1024x768 second screen it's like Regen posted, but on my laptop's screen (my main screen) it's fine.

i think the
"In the past month: 3235 posts, 115 new members, 6 game add-ons, 11 journal entries, 621 Talk posts, and Robot Wants Kitty!"

should be replaced with:
In the past month: 3235 posts, 115 new members, 6 game add-ons, 11 journal entries, 621 Talk posts, and Robot Wants puppy
