Default Homepage

So what do you guys think about the updated homepage?

Anything else that you would like to see added to the homepage or removed from it?

I will keep the left side of the homepage updated with three recent events. There will always be 1 Rally event and 2 Rallyx events or 2 Rally events and 1 Rallyx event, since the site represents both forms of motorsports. Post any pictures you guys take of Mitsubishis at these events so I can put them on the homepage.

On the right side I bumped up the number of recent threads from 5 to 10. This way you can see more of them at one glance and hopefully not miss anything.

Also on the right side I've got site announcements which I will keep updated with new things and I will also post them here in the forums since not everyone checks the homepage.

The rest of the right side is rally news, spotlight member, rally america and NASA rally sport schedules, mini calendar, and site stats. For the schedules I can keep those, I can cut them, I can add more, just let me know what you guys want.

The mini calendar shows you all the upcoming events for the current month. Just hover your mouse over any day with a line under it and it will show you all of the events on that day. Just about every Saturday and Sunday is packed with rallies and rallyx's all across the country.

I will also be adding a new section on the right side for the Dirty Evo of the Quarter which will be kicking off in July!!

Please give me some input on this so we can work together to make the site grow!

I am liking the new setup. Only thing I can think of is the DirtyEvo of the Quarter postings. I assume it will be displayed on the main page for the member? Any plans on that?

That is correct! In fact I'll go ahead and add the spot to the homepage on July 1st with a link to the submission thread. Once we have a winner in October, his car will be on the homepage for the next 3 months!

Serious question, how often you you guys even see the homepage? Or do you just have the forums or your control panel bookmarked and go directly there?

I like to scroll down it yes. I like to check the highlights but do not go in to read full reports as I don't have time.

If you are asking so you are not constantly updating for no one to watch, I would suggest just having highlight pics of recent rallies...o wait, that is what you are doing haha.

real suggestion though,

the "Welcome DirtyEvo Members" message does take away from the highlights of the home page. I would suggest removing it or providing a wide view across the page so people can see the pretty pictures below it.

That is precisely why I am asking. I will always keep certain things updated, like the "recent events" but if the the "rally news" and "site announcements" sections are more visible in the forums then I will just leave them there. I personally go straight to the homepage because of the "recent threads" section, that way I can see all of the threads have been replied to and check them out.

Honestly this is my favorite section. Any person who is checking out the site for the first time is going to see the homepage first. That welcome message is for them, giving them a brief overview of the site, letting them know about some of the site features, and encouraging them to create and account and start posting.
