Talk:Main Page

We got a nice simply start with the page as it is now, and we have no current contenders. How about adding another row so we can show off the logo and give a list of quick links like we used too? --AshMCairo 06:02, 20 February 2008 (PST)

The logo is already there, and on every page. The way we did it before was redundant and ugly. I prefer to fill the main page with more content... but we need to have the content, first. --Timoran 21:38, 21 February 2008 (PST)
OK... no logo to header banner... I don't suppose we can just copy what Wikipedia has on they front page with the simple Welcome to on the right and on the left a bunch of quick links. --AshMCairo 07:24, 22 February 2008 (PST)

Hey... anyway we can get someone to make a MediaWiki extension so we can import the LAFF mail to this page somehow? I found this Perl script that could parse Mailman archives to RSS to I think this is a good start. http://jmason.org/software/scripts/mailman-archive-to-rss.txt --AshMCairo 19:40, 21 February 2008 (PST)

I sent an email to puma about that script as from what I've been told it'll have to be run from catbox. I hope he can get it implemented. As for importing it here... mmm... I need to more research. --AshMCairo 07:24, 22 February 2008 (PST)
You could stick http://laff.drigon.com/viewforum.php?f=1#topics in an iframe. For a cleaner but harder method, I could export all the topics and messages in XML through an API. --Mahadri 01:43, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
I'd rather do with an RSS method instead on an out-of-place iFrame. --AshMCairo 14:54, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

I'm tooling around with some ideas to attract more visitors. Don't suppose we can turn this into more of a portal and add information like current weather and whanot. Maybe a oekaki board? --AshMCairo 09:06, 29 February 2008 (PST)

Hay, if the event calendar is taking time to develop... I don't suppose we can use Google Calendar? I'll have to see if we can get a hold of puma and just migrate what he has over to it. --AshMCairo 09:06, 29 February 2008 (PST)

I also have an idea to add some Google Gadgets to a couple of pages. Weather forecasts for the event stuff for example. Any thoughts? --AshMCairo 09:06, 29 February 2008 (PST)

The external link "LAFF's Forum Board" to http://laffboards.muux.org/ has displayed a "Service Announcement" page since May 24, 2010 and needs to be replaced with http://laff.drigon.com/, a forum with a gateway to the catbox mailing lists running since August 2009. --Mahadri 01:26, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Done. --AshMCairo 14:53, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
