I should like to know how people are finding this little hole in the wall. There's activity on the game server by people that don't use the forum. Judging from the reaction of Terrorboy, I'm not sure how many think you have to play a game of CW in real time as opposed to snail mode play like AWBW. It doesn't help that CW is rather spartan in user-friendliness regardless.

I also keep forgetting a main page even exists.

Yeah, it has to be the main page. You can get the game and link directly to the server on the main page. I realized we are getting a lot of guests roaming around here, just not enough members. (If you don't count the spam bots ;P )

Hmm, I was hoping for more. Like, what "routes" lead here? Search engines?

As an aside, JSR and stef are the only ones to show up with some relation to CW, at least in the first few pages of a google search. My moniker came up on at least two dating sites. Narts is both a resale and rocket association as well as a dance ensemble. urusan is a home consulting agency. Xen is a social network bookmarking thing and customized light bulbs. So. Yeah.

Never thought about checking our usernames :P

I know Xen markets Custom Wars on his sig on AWN. (Which is actually a good marketing idea, tbh). We really do not know how many non-members click on those links. There are a lot of lurkers out there.

I wouldn't say he markets it so much as he put it there a while ago, intends to remove it, but can never be arsed to do so.

At any rate, is there anything that can be done to the main page? Maybe remove the links that don't go anywhere? Give the few that do work their own buttons?

Yeah, I was just talking about that with Tapsi. I wanted to change it into some sort of blog site so the community can track our prgress, and also fix the links so that it'll lead people straight to the forums and the game. But, I have a lot on my plate that I have to complete, so it never materialized yet.

I am open to suggestion... but if you are tired of waiting for me to respond then PM me. I'll see what I can do to put this on a higher priority :). I really want to release a demo of what we have created by the beginning of January, but if the look of the website is very important, I don't mind pushing forward the release a bit. :P

This is just an idea I came up with. Could we put ourselves on Facebook? Would we want to?
Just a thought.

Why would we do that when the main page isn't up to date? It'll be one more thing to take care of.

I know how to work with the Wiki. So I'm fixing the holes and what not. If I do something wrong please tell me.
