Next on test:

Rotating News / Image
http://goldenblade.guildlaunch.com/sections/chat/?gid=340862
This is great for featuring stuff, but the huge downside is it doesn't fit on most of our pages. It really only works on the chat because it doesn't have a left column.

JG Twitter
http://goldenblade.guildlaunch.com/forums/index.php?gid=340862 (see bottom)
This one fits OK in the middle column of any page with 3 columns. I previously had it on the chat page where it was much too small.

Feat Hunter

Apparently, there's a built-in hidden section where you can save tips with links to video & discussion. This was originally a "boss tactic" widget, but I repurposed it for feats to match DCUO better. I have to play around with the video part, but it's a good feature to promote some forum posts that get buried over time.

Cool stuff Alyssa! As always good work! BTW, What happened to the Gallery Section? And can we get that updated so everyone can share images there?
That would be a nice addition... especially to those who love pictures!! Like me :3 Thanks!

The Gallery section was removed because of file size limitations. If it was used often enough, we would hit the limit after one or two complete albums. We should use the forums to display galleries as those posts use 3rd party services for hosting images.

Maybe a community flickr or picasa album which would show up on the site as a slideshow.

Picasa does have a widget that works...
http://goldenblade.guildlaunch.com/

...and it can have shared albums. I guess the down side is the widget can only display all and not most recent 10. So it would just get larger every time someone uploads.

Maybe have it target at recent folder only and as it gets bigger the older photos in the recent folder are sorted out and placed in other folders.

I have cleaned up some Threads and streamlined the Forums a little more. Hopefully with the awesome changes Alyssa has made the Site will keep improving

I'd like to give the shared album/slideshow idea a test. The Google Picasa widget does work from previous tests, but the sharing part isn't automatic. I actually have to share the selected album with another Google account and then allow collaboration from there.

I would like to do one with Bombshell posters since many of you created some nice ones. If you're interested, here's what to do...

1) PM me your google account email. Since this is a video game, I recommend that you don't use one with your real name!

2) When I create the album, you will get an invite from DragonVR4[at]gmail[dot]com.

3) You'll then be able to upload your poster to that album and it should appear on the widget I put on the homepage.

I figured out how to get these Guildlaunch sites mobile optimized, so I will be building a test on the Dev site:

http://goldenblade.guildlaunch.com/

Currently the basic parts are in place and the layout itself will work on phones and tablets. I just need to get a working banner and see if the different columns can be customized better.
