New Homepage.

Does it look good? If you don't like it, feel free to revert it. :) --Xiaolin 14:53, 9 September 2007 (CDT)

First of all, I just cleared the other discussions, since I thought they were a little old and were making the page long.

Secondly, the answer to your question. I personally don't like the new homepage. I liked it the way it was before. The sections are closer to the center than to the left side of the page, and nobody but the administrator guys can edit it. It doesn't seem very organized to me. --Squiddy22

Centering the sections was intentional - it looked awkward with a visually boxed area on the left and a lot of whitespace on the right.

Yes, we locked this page so there wouldn't be a lot of editing going on on our homepage. If theres a good reason, we can unlock it, but it had been relatively stable for a while and then had a bunch of sudden changes without discussion, so we wanted to lock it down so that didn't happen again.

What about it don't you find organized? The important items are on the top. Reminders are underneath. Text that didn't make any sense (like screen size recomendations) were removed.

Idk, it just would look better that way to me. But now I see what you're trying to do. Squiddy22 19:30, 12 September 2007 (CDT)

I don't like the new homepage either, it just doesn't "flow" Rocky 6:58, 17 October 2007 (CDT)

Suggestions? As noted above, the current layout evolved to this point as is certainly cleaner than it was. --Prisoner 06:48, 17 October 2007 (CDT)

What is the use of using tables to accomplish the effect that we have on this page? Thanks! Good ol Sandy 19:29, 6 January 2008 (CST)

It looks better, I think. --Haveamagicalday

The same effect could be made with divs, which is more semantic, so why not do it that way? Thanks! Good ol Sandy 20:00, 6 January 2008 (CST)

What are "divs"? Also, you might not know this, but an editor edited this page, trying to make it more organized, and then it was blocked for regular editors, and changed a little bit. --Haveamagicalday 20:04, 6 January 2008 (CST)

Game guide order . . .

On both the sidebar and main page the order of the guides is: VMK, TT, POTCO, CP, WOC, PH, Other. I would like to suggest that the order be changed. Maybe alphabetically (CP, POTCO, PH, TT, VMK, WOC, Other) or maybe another order? IMHO, with the closing of VMK it is no longer the most active guide so shouldn't have top billing anymore. Thoughts? -- SpinMarty 22:48, 8 October 2008 (PDT)

Agreed. As much as I love VMK, it is closed and doesn't need to be on top. I think they should be put in order of release. Toontown, VMK, Club Penguin and POTCO (Idk which was out first. . .), Pixie Hollow, The World of Cars, and then last Other Disney Online Games (since it is least used). --GoodPolarGirl 10:24, 12 October 2008 (PDT)

I like the idea of alphabetical order. It seems more organized that way.

GoodPolarGirl, Club Penguin has been out for about 3 years now. POTCO was released near the end of last year. --Tricky 13:42, 12 October 2008 (PDT)

Well, by out, I mean bought/owned by Disney. Club Penguin wasn't bought by Disney until about a year ago? Correct me if I'm wrong. --GoodPolarGirl 14:22, 12 October 2008 (PDT)

I agree that VMK shouldn't be at the top anymore, since it is closed. I think, as well, it should go in alphabetical order :-). --Haveamagicalday (Talk | Contributions) 18:19, 12 October 2008 (PDT)

Correct, it was bought by Disney last year but it has been out for a while. It was still bought before POTCO was opened, I believe. --Tricky 18:51, 12 October 2008 (PDT)

The main page rearrangement suggestions have been noted and will be taken into consideration. Quite honestly, of all the sections, the VMK area is the most complete and best represents the standards I'd like to hold DOW to. In order for me to feel comfortable with other sections being listed first, not only would they require some fine-tuning, they would also need to be maintained a little more consistently. Thank you for the input. --UpInTheAir 23:07, 12 October 2008 (PDT)


I while back I was asking about music on the wiki. I was wondering who on the forums I would ask for the MP3s. I think I found a way to put them on. :)

If you don't mind sending me a PM on the forums to outline your proposed method of adding MP3s, I would appreciate it. Also, this is something I want to make sure gets tested before too much effort is put into gathering the music. As for the files themselves, I know many had posted about how they made an effort to collect the sounds from VMK before it closed. Off the top of my head I couldn't tell you who might have the files but if we have a viable option for adding music then I'm sure we can work on finding people willing to share. Thanks. --UpInTheAir 10:46, 12 January 2009 (PST)
