Change GameSlurp? (Now done - see homepage!)

Hey Guys - was thinking, shall we make a few changes to GameSlurp? Social media sites have changed, with them going in a quick n easy route - I think GS at the mo has too many hoops to post new threads (click on platforms, thread type, and related games - along with title and the post itself). So here's a few suggestions - feel free to add your own and let me know what you think of these:

1) Twitter like - but retain full posts (ie not limited to 140 characters). So the homepage - main page - would look something like this:



Basically it will be one long thread - but with the latest post at the top, and the quick reply box at the top. We'll still be able to quote people - but mainly it will be for us to just post what we've been up to game-wise.

2) Remove clutter from posting threads + make forum listing homepage - ie no more thread types, platforms, related games fields on submitting a thread, and the homepage would default to this http://www.gameslurp.com/gaming-forums.php (or we could make them optional - as I do like the 'official threads' tags. Off-topic and forum support posts will go in the same forum - no biggie really as the others don't get many posts.

3) Have both - make the homepage like option 1 (ie for updates) but have the forums as a link (either leave them as they are now - or as option 2)

What do you think?

All sounds good to me...I like change and the fact that it might attract more people to start posting!

Haha cool - but which option? (I'm edging towards 3 - have a front page for 'what you been up to' and the forums for discussions and questions. We can then see how it goes and change it necessary

You mean I have to pick one? I'll go for 3, best of both worlds

Good stuff

I think we can drop the rep system too - it never really worked - we'll just have a stricter door policy, if people act like knobs we'll just ban em. I think keeping GS as an exclusive/private community is going to be best (I doubt any of us want to turn it into a troll site - like those we came here to get away from). We'll replace rep with a 'like' button instead (tried it on another forum and it went down well).

Ok guys - I've done the first iteration to get it up and running!

At the mo the quick reply box sends you to a full reply, as I can't seem to get the stupid quick reply thing to work but it still feels ok - what do you think?

Looking forward to seeing what you lot get up to!

And here's a quick adjustment of our homepage graphic (shown to guests) to give people an idea of what GS is about:
