Hello Everyone

So I've recently spent the last 3 weeks working on overhauling my guild website.  Since we lack any real support for multi-game guilds right now (no, I'm not upset Aaron.  I know it takes time ) I had to spread my site across 2 pages and try to make it as seamless as possible.

Since I refused to totally seperate the two games, due to the fact I want my members to realize they are ONE guild, not THREE, this was the only solution I could come up with.  Of course, this means they have to register on both sites to see all the content.

For the next few days, I'm going to set all the content to Public so you guys can look it over.  It's not 100% complete, but it is REALLY close.

Please let me know what you think of it, the areas you think need improved, and if said areas need improving, any ideas/technical help you may be able to give me in order to implement the changes your idea would entail.

Thank you for your time and here is the page link http://dragons.guildportal.com

Looks great to me, Arouin.  It seems pretty seamless at a glance (I didn't have time to really plunge into the site).  And I agree, if and when Aaron is able to get merged sites situated, it'll really be nice for y'all to not have to apply to all three sites.

Beautiful artwork, too, btw. 




On hiatus...baby wrangling.

That's a beautiful site Arouin, very well done. my site has been a bitstagnant lately because of the multigame guild thing, I can't reallyafford to pay for two pages or I'd be stealing ideas from you. Not to mention it was hard enough getting everyone toregister for one page never mind 2.

I can't tell that it's even spread over 2 sites. You've done an excellent job

Well, if you guys like it, then my members have nothing to complain about

I actually stole the basic idea from the Divine Retribution site, and just expanded on it.  I had hoped to be able to do it with only 1 site, as I dont' know when the subscription runs out on the second one as I only pay for the first one, but I just couldn't figure out how.  We really needed seperate calendars, and if I was gonna do seperate calendars, figured I might as well go all the way.

I'm really glad you guys like it, I was thinking it might be too complicated for general usage.  *I* can find my way around just fine, but then, I know where I put everything LOL

My #1 biggest problem is going to be getting people to register on both the sites.  They have a hard time figuring out how to register on just 1, much less 2.  And since the application questions are the same, they'll probably figure it's the same application and only do 1 of them.

What would be a really simple fix for that problem I think is to be able to specify which pages you own are linked to what other pages you own.  So that if someone is approved on one of the linked sites, they automatically get added to any other site that's linked to it.  Like I'd link the Camelot and Warcraft sites together so that my guild members are automatically registered on both, but I wouldn't link the Camelot Alliance site to either of them.
