Updated media page

Post by Fnordia » 13 Sep 2008, 20:50

Since I've received some new artwork from Roflcopter I have created an updated version of the Media page, which can be seen here. It's not quite finished yet, but I think it is close enough that it could be useful with some feedback.

What remains that I have planned to fix is mostly support for splitting content over several pages, but right now everything fits on one page anyway.

After this is finished I guess we could start opening up for posting of new screenshots and videos as well.

Nice but a few improvements:

Separate screenshots and videos into two sections inside their own boxes like the one at the side

I would also put a little extra box at the side with a tiny snippet linking to another wiki page with details on how to contribute more images. It should have the same header as the media page and should be short concise and full of images

I really suggest to change development to development/modding and then giving a menu with 3 choises, Dev, modding and Lua.

No because modding == content development, we don't want to just confuse everybody with a long winded menu entry

I'd agree with keeping videos and screenshots separate by default.

Ok, I've committed the first version. Not quite sure how you think the videos and screenshots should be separated. Just having the default link be this, or create some sort of tabs? If we split the keyword boxes into two there will be duplicates, and it would be more difficult to just display all images and videos for a particular game for example. But perhaps that's not all that useful..

Those things on the right with the text in them, yes they're boxes. Now see those things on the left? They're not inside boxes are they? Put them into boxes and hey presto, video box image box yay!

stating the obvious ftw!
