A rolling to-do list where we can centralize all gripes about the new site in one place. Beige will work through suggestions posted here in a (hopefully) timely fashion, as we work through our growing pains.

To implement: Announcement box for index page

Here's a mod that will do it: http://www.phpbbmods.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=207

Not sure how to install it, though, so I'll leave it to you, Beige. That way it's not my fault if something breaks. :)

This should provide something like we had on the old free forum, where we included a brief welcome message and a call to action for new members with a link to the "Introductions and Reacquainting" thread. The announcement can be updated whenever there's an event of some description -- perhaps an organised mission, a podcast or a game night -- but the most important thing is the welcome message and link to the Introductions thread, I think, otherwise it could be daunting for new members to know where to start.

No worries. If I can't get this installed today, we can always do it whilst I'm there in the UK!

Work in progress on this, as you can all probably see. Forums are back up, in the meantime.

Still to do: fancy CSS formatting so it's in keeping with the rest of the site. Beige and Rampant are in the UK for a while, though, so this may have to wait since I'm not sure how confident I am with tweaking the site's files! We'll see.
