FRONT PAGE REDIRECT - did that confuse you, or make sense?
« on: March 10, 2011, 03:07:50 pm »

So - if you visit the front page of OKgamers - the main content is the current tournaments "active" in the Tournament & Events forum...

When you click on the thread, it takes you to the MOST RECENT POST.

Did that confuse you?  You expect to view the first post - first?  Or, did that make sense?



We've kicked it around over the years, and the more I've thought about new users and learning curves, the more I realize we should probably - not do the latest post?  And go to the FIRST post?

Thoughts?

Man to be legitimately honest, i dont ever visit the front page. However, i think it should go to the first post, because that has all the information about the tournament.

And that confusion - of just being dropped in on whatever random comment was made last lol - is what I don't want......  But was curious to hear what others had felt / experienced / thought.

That will change soon..   That happened when we made preparations for the New Okgamers.com 3.0    Same with the login via Facebook from the front page.. It will all work soon..   

For now just use the login information on the forums.. Which the Facebook Connect Login Does work from the Forum Page.

Sorry for the Confusion..  It will all be worth it in the end once we find OKG3p0 :)

It should always link to the original post because ideally people are visiting the OKgamers front page to check to see when and where they can find tournaments and gatherings, not to see what me and animefreak are talking about, or check on the status of housing for arkansas, or see people complaining about the rules..


Always link to the actual information about the tournament.

I am thinking you are 100% right, and we should go that route.  If anyone has a good argument - NOW is the time :)
