"Front Page" Team

Postby d.yaro » Sat Mar 26, 2011 6:40 am

Most of you probably don't remember what the front page to Anime Alley (at http://www.theanimealley.com/) looks like. To refresh your memory, here's a screen shot of it:

That graphic has been standing guard at our gateway since the day we opened up back in October 2008. But time doesn't stand still for anything and that applies to that graphic too. So we've given some thought to giving our front page a makeover. The idea is to make it a bit more interesting and hopefully enticing enough to get potential new members to check out our forum index (which now lists a number of unlocked forums...thank-you chrisb for the suggestion) and sign up.

With that in mind I'm pleased to announce the formation of a "Front Page" team to take on the task of creating content to be posted as our splash page. The initial members of the team are bashfulglowfly and chrisb. Pastachan and I are their supporting staff members. I hope that all members will join me in wishing them luck. If any of you have any ideas you'd like to suggest or content you'd like donate to the team then please do so. You can contact the team via PM or post here on this thread. Your support will be most welcome.

Cheers! :D

I should have said something sooner, but I always thought the original splash page came across as wanting to scare everybody off. It wasn't exactly what I would call an inviting picture. Something to do with the juxtaposition of "welcome" and a spooky castle in the background. I'm just saying....

But yeah, good luck and all that for the new one.

I always thought of it as London with a nightly fog adding an aura of mystery. But what do I know heh.
