FAO Rash - usability

www.gamegrin.com

doesnt have a strong enough call to action that a lan is open for bookings

i totally missed the "LANs" in top nav and couldnt find lans anywhere else

even something simple like put LANs on the left hand nav in the "General" tab.

just my thoughts

Re: FAO Rash - usability

Whats the chances of getting the old lan countdown timer back, I liked that, also I kmow theres a link on the right but it might be worth having a perminant news style post at the top of the page advertising the lan?, I know its not needed for this lan but might help with the planned 200 player event?

I would have to speak to kyle about the old LAN countdown
(we used to have some nightmares with it)
saying that, we might might be able to knock one up for the new site, not something i have looked in to, will add that to list of jobs.

As for the permalink idea, the new site supports having posts as "stickys" (similar to the forums), its one of the things we wanted but haven't used yet.
or maybe just an old fashion banner on the right (where the mag one is?)

Will have a word with Bob about some images (were just about to remove the subscribe links on the menu which will create more space)

Cheers for input

Re: FAO Rash - usability

k, just seems that if theres a event on it should be plastered around everywhere to let people know rather than a little link

Fingers crossed on the countdown.

Also it might be a idea to have a section on the front page that shows how many places there are, how many bookings have been taken and how many free spaces there are rather than having to navigate round the site new visitors can see right away.

Re: FAO Rash - usability

i have been testing out some scripts today
think i have found a pretty good one thats simple to use (currently on the dev site)
not liking it as much as the old one, but a count down is a count down

Shout me if anyone wants to view it on the dev site

Re: FAO Rash - usability

Looks good to me, like the title of the countdown in bold, more eye catching.
Now get cracking and get in on the site!
