Website Re-Design

Postby Louise » Tue Feb 03, 2015 3:11 am

I recently put 2-3 days work into re-designing LARP Victoria's website (not entirely from scratch) because we kept getting emails saying "when is the next event and how do I join?". So I hope the big button that takes you to the club's information page is a good solution.

Looking in to the future, I was wondering if this website needs to do more for prospective players. Should there be more emphasis on the forum? Should there be something like an interview (either text or video) inviting people to come an play?

Personally, I enjoy the clubs the size they are now. But do you have friends and family who you would like to come along? Do you have a hard or easy time explaining what LARP is?

Still not sure what the call to action should be on the events listed on the home page.

Also, I'm really starting to hate this PHPBB theme. Especially the red links. :nope:

Website works for me Kitsune. But I'm not a new person seeking information.
Thanks for the work you have put in.

To me, as an organiser of a club, is it always important to have new people coming through all the time. They need to be able to access the clubs easily, and feel welcomed - its hard enough to come out of your shell for many shy roleplayers, let alone contacting strangers about getting involved.
It is really important to always be encouraging new people - because those who are participants now may not be next event, or next year, etc. as lives change.

Re the colour scheme - I don't mind it much, but I wouldn't mind it if you tried something softer than red.

It's actually quite hard to find a ready made theme that works straight out of the box, and displays nicely on mobiles.

The future plan for this forum...

Choose a theme from here (ThemeForest) or here (Rocket Theme).

In an ideal world, I'd make my own, but it takes way too long.
