Landing page for newbies
« Topic Start: August 01, 2019, 05:27:30 AM »
We could add a page "Battlemaster.org/welcome". Then when introducing new players to the game we make this the standard link we provide. The landing page could feature a short trailer then links with the option to view tutorials, read the wiki or proceed to the main game page.

Dead? I noticed the realm pages weren't working but I figured that was a bug that would be sorted out sooner or later. Is this an irreparable problem or something?

The PHP update has caused issues with the wiki, it will be fixed in time. If you need information on the pages that give an error then click "view source", or "edit page" if logged in, and you can view the raw information on the page.

LMAO in over a decade of play, I have never seen that page.

I see it is linked from the login page. Once a player has created an account, they might not see it again, such as the way I have missed it.

What if we added a link for it at the top of the page? Like "BattleMaster/Wiki/Forum/BugTracker/Help"?

That way it is there and noticeable?

Yeah it well hidden. It couldn't hurt mocking it up a bit better and putting a link somewhere.

Splash of colour? Some sparkles? All good things to attract the eye.

Also now that we know it's there we can recommend it to everyone as the standard link to send friends.
