This is a new site in early days of being built. If there's anything you want to see on the website this is the place to let us know.

The main priorities:
  • Overall look & feel of the site, including new artwork.
  • Forum subsections
  • Useful Links

If there's anything you think needs more immediate attention let us know.

Not so much attention but something simple to consider: what about space/ground guides subforums?

how exactly do you mean, there are build sections for dps or buffing ground and space here.

Or do you mean something different?

Well I presume builds are for feedback/help requests and submission of complete builds (and presumably could be broken down further as such). My idea was to have a section for guides, like @Jaremilus's Fast DPS Guide (http://tinyurl.com/fast-sto-dps-manual). A dedicated space where people can post guides/tactics for STFs, events, tips or nuances that aren't directly related to a build.

Excellent idea, I'll get on to that now.

Thank you.

[edit] What I've decided to do is change the build section to builds and guilds. [/edit]

I'm glad I could be of service. It's something I noticed Reddit having that this site currently lacked, outside of "Let's Talk Things Over"

Just my 2 cents, the space for posts on the forum should be larger. For example, the right side column can be deleted and moved to the left, prioritizing the most important info boxes

Thanks for the thoughts, what I've actually done is make the forums have nothing on either side, the rest of the site is still in the same format. Let me know if this is the kinda thing you meant.

Oh yeah, this is really better, thank you. You know, a forum is meant to give importance to the ideas and thoughts of users, so this space is now more appropriate :)*

*: my opinion is based on past and actual moderator experiences, the users always call for "more space to write on" :D

excellent, thank you, it also inspired me to alter the arrangement of some of the other pages, took the right bar off for more room leaving the left one like you suggested originally, but i felt the more open look with nothing was better for the forums.

Thanks again.

First good work with the site :)

Do you know if it is possible to run some JavaScript code on certain pages? I had some nice ideas to integrate the league (for example here: http://dps.shivtr.com/pages/DPSPOP).

Honestly I'm not sure. However that page you've linked, I know will accept HTML, at the top there's an edit icon that you should be able to see (sorry everyone else, wizards only). Have a play in there see if you can implement what you're thinking, there's an option at the top to change it from bbcode to html. I'm sure I don't need to pass you any tips, but shout if you need me.

Also, I'm not sure if you'll have this, at the very top of the page is the site title, for me I have a spanner icon just to the right, you maybe able to get in there too, you'll be able to create pages in there. Any problems it's probably easiest to get hold of me in game (@ukcaptain420).

[edit] I went looking and found this suggesting we can't use java. I also found this but I think not what you are looking for.

Ok, that's what I expected. No script in these HTML-Fields. However, thanks for the links.

Had the thought we could use an iframe and link to another page hosted somewhere?

did that. Much better, I think ^^ (Ok, not really beautiful at the moment, but always the current numbers.) Which font does this site use? I will add it and some other colours.

So I had some more thoughts over night about integrating the league data into the website, and wondered if it would be possible to make a display of a few things, like, Current Records, Highest DPS this month, fastest run this month, stuff like that. Something like this.
