New front page? Not forum
« on: Tuesday, May 15, 2018, 12:19:44 PM »
Should we make a new front page for this site? .. redirecting to forum seems confusing. If it would help to grow the number of players ;)

What purpose would it serve? We don't have much to put on it that wouldn't re redundant with the forum view.

Like what? I'm not super convinced showing off a game from 2003 on a homepage would even be a good move.

Well  If you  Put the front page of the site as something along the lines of Americas Army 2.5 logo.  Then Large links on the front to Create account,  A large link the the download,  And better if download hosted directly from here rather than from source forge.

Just a lot more user friendly to get started.  And Once Downloaded installed and Account created if people could actually start playing rather than wait for an approval.

If you don't have a previous account, activation is automatic and takes less than 10 minutes.

I guess I am just saying that as it is it is a little difficult for some to get installed and with you guys not being around a lot and not the easiest to reach when there are issues its hard to get resolved even with on of us trying to walk some one through it.  I imagine it is a lot worse for anyone else who has no one to help guide them.
