The Xenocide Homepage...
Posted 22 November 2003 - 02:00 PM
I was thinking (that's what having to fly a lot does to you), that since most people would getting to know Xenocide over the internet and through the project xenocide homepage, we should make sure that it's easy to update and such, and that it looks as cool as the game is going to be...
I will take the opportunity to say that it's not a critisism of the people that have been working on the homepage at all...
But since I think it is stupid to start writing X-Net entries too much before the models and such are done, I have some time to do other things... For instance making things on the homepage...
I've had a look at the sourcecodes for the homepage, and I've made a surgestion for some changes that I have sent to Micah, and I thought that if anyone had any ideas for something they thought could be cool on the homepage, say so here and I'll have a look at it, and then of course it's up to Micah if he thinks it's a good idea...

I believe some updates to the artwork section should be made, especially including the new and as-good-as-finished [Laser Pistol]. I am currently trying to show some people what project xenocide is about and that it is really progressing and a cool thing, but the homepage doesn't have the newest, coolest graphics

the truth about scientology
Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

Maybe link (or cut and paste) a lot of the content from the wiki and add a link. For some sections, the information there's much more accurate and up-to-date, particularly the FAQ and the Recruiting Process sections.

I agree that this is something someone would have to spend a lot of time for... but then again, this is something the wiki page would be perfect for, if we can convince people to put all the newest stuff there. like "everytime you finish a new picture/text/programming feature, put/describe it in the wiki". do you think this might be possible?

Entering the site doesn't mean that people will enter the forums, become forum members, and then they will stand staring at our incredible work!
The download pages dates Dec 2003, Artwork in the site is FAR too old etc. That's the first "layer of impression". The first time I entered the site, I was a bit impressed (actually, as impressed with UFO:AI). Then, I downloaded 0.0.4, and I was a bit depressed...
But, I didn't join the forums! I left, and I returned 1 month after! No actual changes in the site! I was ready to leave, and then I thought to join the forums! That's when I realised the progress and the quality of the project. And, looking at ALL the progress that has been done since I joined, I just stand and stare.... O_O
Show'em what we've got!

Personally, I wouldn't mind substituting the some wiki pages for some pages on the main site (Recruitment, FAQ, Who We Are, etc.)
How would one go about becoming and being a moderator for the AWD? I'm already searching through the AWD forums when I'm proofreading and enforcing consistency in CTs against the art models, so maybe I could kill two birds with one stone?

The wiki is just perfect for our development needs, but in order to "lure" more people in our forums, we should have a nice looking page!

But, that's certainly a low-priority "to-do in the future" task. But, we should definitely update the main page, and direct links to the wiki on the left etc

The only thing I need to know is the current ftp information and the folder location for current assets. This might allow me to fix the X-Net page as well, assuming the text entries are still compiled into xml format. If anyone with the proper info could send me a message about ftp info, and where current pics/texts are being stored on the server, I'll see what I can do.
(as an aside, if you are used to just linking a pic or text within a forum post, realise it might be harder or impossible to recover such info after a forum crash, compared to it being stored in a ftp folder and linked to. It's also easier to use the data in other areas that way too, especially if threads get moved and their links change)

Do the following give Azrael, Breunor, Dipstick, Kafros and Astyanax access to it and lets see what the guys can do ... when it is ready for primetime we do the switch . (Azrael will be in charge in this task)

If people like this, I can add some members to the posting group, and they can try it out. Send me an email: breunor at gmail dot com, and I'll send an invite to the address. I tend to take a couple days between visits here, so emailing me is the quickest way to reach me, compared to PMs here.

Also, is this a totally new Xenocide homepage?
If we get access via invitation, would we be able to muddle around with it to figure out how it works?
Posted 15 April 2005 - 01:23 PM
Definitely much better than now and easier to use
We will also be able to see who's posting
