Front Page Features

Post by OrangeRakoon » Sat Jan 24, 2015 12:53 pm

Super ONM's front page has been retired - thanks to everyone who suggested topics to be featured!

Please post here to put forward any thread to be featured on Super ONM's home page. Examples of threads likely to be featured on the home page are community projects and opinion pieces related to videogames, but everything will be considered. All suggestions will be discussed and decided on by the mod team to ensure a regular flow of features and to ensure the quality of the featured threads.

Code: Select all

[b]Topic Name: [/b]
[b]Topic Link: [/b]
[b]Reason(s) for feature: [/b]
(optional) [b]Title for feature: [/b]
(optional) [b]Link(s) to image(s) for use on front page: [/b]
Front page features require images of 3 different sizes, to be used as they descend down the page. The largest feature size (which may be reserved and not used for all front page features) is 800 pixels by 400 pixels. The medium sized images are 400 pixels by 400 pixels, and the smallest are 200 by 200. You can choose to either create these banners yourself, provide an image that you would like included in the banners, or leave this for later creation. The Graphics Request thread may come in useful for getting these banners created, utilizing some of the talented designers in our community!

Also please remember that while we like to keep up to date with the latest happenings in the world of gaming, Super ONM is not a news site and the front page is not meant as a source of gaming news. Trying to keep up content production to follow every game announcement would be a futile task for us, and for that reason general news/annoucement threads are discouraged from being suggested for features. Thanks!

Front Page Features? What are they?

Super ONM's home page will be regularly updated with the latest content, and it's you, as the community, who get to decide what that is, and even contribute articles of your own. The front page has been designed from scratch to provide links to the latest news, projects and forum events going on around the site, and we hope that this linking directly through to forum threads from the front page will not only help to promote the featured threads, but also act as a great platform for members to get opinion pieces, writing and other projects out there to the world and given exposure.

Topic Name: Formula One Prediction Thread 2015
Topic Link: http://www.sonm.uk/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=564
Reasons for Feature: Seeing as a Brit has actually won a title, the first since 2009, there'll be more interest for the sport than there has been for a long time, so some promotion would be helpful to get people involved, by being featured on the front page!
Title for feature:F1 Prediction Thread!

400 by 400 most likely, I'll have to request this however.

This is a great idea. Have nothing to offer atm, not until I get back into forum games. I am however planning on bringing back a nice thread I did on ONM, which I just failed to upkeep.

Met-tropolis is now featured on the front page!

Thanks for all the suggestions/nominations so far everyone, great to see people on board with this! They're all good suggestions so far - please note that just because Met-tropolis now on the front page, it doesn't mean the other threads already nominated won't also be at some point. Especially with large, continuous threads, they have scope to be featured at any point during their existence.

The ones above that haven't appeared probably won't now as it's been a while since they were nominated.

Topic Name: SONM Football League
Topic Link: http://www.sonm.uk/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=59
Reason(s) for feature: Coming up to silly season this Monday and we're looking for a new manager. Played on a game called Xpert Eleven that simplifies some aspects of football while at the same time providing hidden depth and a challenge. SONM's league is currently ranked 141st of all leagues on Xpert Eleven

EDIT: Never mind, got a manager from the actual site itself to join the free space.

I've gone ahead and added the link to the front page anyway - it at least helps keep the front page fresh, and it doesn't harm to let people have a look and maybe join next time they have a chance (:

Any more feature suggestions are very welcome right now!
