You can't ruffle my
feathers (I'm all fur).
Sorry you don't like it, but thanks for your comments.
You're right, the front page is a showoff page. It's supposed to say - hey this site is fun and worth a look. But it's also designed to provide a quick overview of all the main areas of the site to anyone visiting for the first time.
Is it the whole allwin thing or the new text links I added recently you don't like?
Seems a good plan to offer dynamically updating links to the latest news, market, auction and forum (that's how I just spotted your posting here) so that visitors can see immediately if there's anything new and go straight there. The PennyMachines Post news page would not be so easy to find without this.
Aside from questions of function, the style
is a matter of taste - and I wouldn't expect everyone to like it.
You have the option of never seeing the default front page and all the other Flash by just clicking that red "f" symbol. You don't really need the homepage page once you know the site, because all the links are available on the other pages (including "Latest" at bottom of the page), but you might consider bookmarking the Site Map
. This minimalist "plain text" gateway page might be more to your liking.
Anyway, thanks again for the feedback.
More comments welcome.
