Home Page Ideas

20 posts
So I'm working on a few ideas for a new home page look. Here is what I'm thinking:

Idea 1: http://www.gamesbutler.com/wireframe_1.jpg
Keep it looking how it is now except take out the Square ad and put in "Recent Forum Posts" and then put that section below the Popular Games.

Idea 2: http://www.gamesbutler.com/wireframe_2.jpg
OR Take out the sidebar, add a featured section on the home page and move everything around.

Take a look at the wire frames (and ignore the sloppiness of them) and let me know what you think. And if you have any ideas/suggestions post them here!

Simple is cool, Walkthroughs shouldn't be on the home page.
Plus the popular games should be reset month to month, that way we have a more up to date say of what is popular.
And you should add some sort thing that says when friends get on or off.

the popular games have been the same since i first got on this site, they should change every once and a while. other than that, the site looks good
I'm now tracking monthly plays, so the popular games will be "Popular Games of the Month" once the new home page is released
you should make it purple! :D lol other than that, I think a live chat or something of the like would be great once the forum is up and running :) maybe an on-site chat room?

wireframe 1 is the way it should be
and/or you could show some positive comments on games to attract people
I think top players should be at the top :)
Also there should be a smiley face
That would be nice
I didn't like how it looked with Popular games on top. I'm reworking the home page right now, just finished the new Top Players look. Refresh the home page and then let me know what you think.
wireframe 1 is the best
i like one and agree with solo, no walkthroughs on the front page..

no.1
no. 1 is already in place, just kept popular games below top players, and walkthroughs stay!
