Default Implementing A Front Page?

So. Since so many people have been wanting their content "front paged" recently. And since we have been announcing so many montages over the past month or so...we have been getting some complaints about the amount of time their content has lasted on there.

Its honestly a silly thing to complain about..but in a sense I can understand someone not liking it when they are bumped after only being up there for a few days.

I have always wondered why this site doesn't have an actual Front Page.

I think (especially with H4 about to drop) it would be a great thing to have on the site.

That way we can host a lot more content, and any news or announcements....including competitions, tournaments, videos, graphics, ect.

And I have heard some good ideas being tossed around from some members.

And having a front page we could implement all of those features easily.

Idk, just wonder why we have yet to actually implement one, it would be great for people who want their stuff announced.

That's a great idea. I think that an actual front page is a better way of organizing things. It may be that I'm just not used to it, since I'm a fairly new member, but the list of montages we have now just seem very cluttered.

I like the idea but I always hated how forums looked more like a feature of a lot of sites and not its primary function, so you would have like a homepage then be a tiny button saying forum and most people visting the site never even see that the forum exists...

Yea you can totally change that.

Its a problem on most sites.

But you can make it to where when you click the banner at the top it takes you to the forum. When you code that into the site, you can make that FORUM button as large as you want.

It would just be wayyyyyy more organized then it is now and we could front page 5x more than we do now.

I like how it's a forum straight away, makes you click a few things before surfing along, instead of clicking the new announcements and fucking off.

I love this idea. Maybe instead of a front page, we add a "top content" section to the top panel (Beside user CP) or somewhere near the top of the page so it easily seen. If we do, I'd like to see a different system other than 5 stars for rating, just because people *might* downvote everything to get their content higher up. I would prefer a simple "Do you like this?" feature, nothing that allows negative feedback. There are ways to let people know they need improvement or that it isn't that good without running the possibility of people downvoting for their content's success.

Still, either would be a great addition to the site. Absolutely.

if everything on our front page directed people to the forum I wouldnt miNd so much, like things like most recent activity, that would show like 5 recent posts made.

Or like read more buttons and not have everysingle piece of news in full on the front page

HIH was extremely active all the way up until ducain decided to put the site in stasis, he saw the site more like what he made when he was younger and wanted to remember it that way because he wasnt active and didnt want to come back and find it changed.

Getting on HIH frontpage used to be like THF a sort of challenge or accomplishment when you are a halo video maker.

If HIH came out of crisis it would instantly be active again ducain never gave it a chance to start dieing...
