New Main Page[edit source]

It was suggested by someone that we format our main page differently (On the main page discussion). I just wanted to check with everyone about what they think. Do they like the 1 column page? Or would they prefer the 2 column page? More color? I think it's fine but I wanted to check. ~ Makiah 19:30, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

More thought into this I would like to bring up a few suggestions but would like some input. I was thinking about a two column format and also use of the Bulletin Board which I saw on The Sims Wiki. Also I was thinking of improving the 'In the News Section'. I like the header but the Sims Universe under it I think maybe should be smaller horizontal wise or at the bottom. Inputs?

I'm thinking about drawing up a test main page, I'll post it up on March 12th but I could still use some input. And anyone who would like to draw up a main page of their own that would be great. We could have a vote between them! Makiah 01:20, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Alright guys to see the potential main page go to the Sandbox. I'm thinking about making use of a bulletin board that was on the original main page. Suggestions would be great. Also if anyone else wants to make a new one and place it on a temporary page I would be fine with that but please serious main pages only and no new templates. Makiah 23:38, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
The page in Sandbox looks good; personally, I can't design stuff so beyond that it looks better than the current main page, I can't really add anything. Much wootness, though, to be sure :) --Narc (talk) 18:48, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I was afraid that the colors would be too strange or something. I also wasn't sure if other people would like it. ~ Makiah 19:18, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
As soon as we finalize the voting procedures I want to begin voting on the new main page. However before we do that I want to discuss something. One thing is something like the 'Needs improving page of the week' but not necessarily that title. XD Just something that puts a page that could have major improvement on the board so we as a group can concentrate on one page as well as our own separate projects. I believe this would benefit the community and put awareness on a page that needs it. I think this would fit best on the 'Got Time?' Section. Also adding to the got time section something that says 'Make sure you check if a page exists before you create one!' What does everyone think? If the reactions on positive I think we could vote on both ideas at once after we finish the voting procedures. ~ Makiah 00:46, 13 March 2008 (UTC)
Well, the voting procedures are up, so we can start the vote whenever. I like the idea about a "Cleanup of the week", we should definitely do that -- except I'd make it more than one page. Not too many, though -- I think three or four really important pages are what we should begin with. I'm also thinking of an official list of pages needing updates, chronologically ordered. I dunno. I agree it's very important to highlight that if a page exists, a new one shouldn't be created -- that's how we ended up with four LTW pages in the first place, blech. Admittedly, that was easier to clean up than I thought it would be. *shrug* My two cents. --Narc (talk) 18:19, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Main Page Voting[edit source]

After discussing the issue and asking members to submit their ideas for a new main page, we have received one (1) idea, which can be viewed at the Sandbox. So if you agree, you want to change the main page layout to the one in the sandbox as well as add 2 articles to a "Clean up of the Week" section and add a clause about checking for pages of the same content before creating them. If you disagree you want to keep everything as it is. Voting ends 28 March 2008. Please remember to sign your votes!
