New Website
« on: April 14, 2017, 03:03:57 AM »

I see the new website is now up, and IMHO it looks pretty good.  One question though, will you be setting up a gallery section where you could show pictures of the rules, wargames, terrain, etc. in play?

You mean, to replace the Flash slides that used to be on the front page?

I was thinking of moving those to the individual game/product pages.

Yeah, I was thinking to myself "You know what this site needs?  More pictures of Lord Ashrams figures."

:)

That would work too, it would be good to see pictures of the way people are using the rules in games.  Either in a central gallery or individually by product page.  Informative too, for example the picture on the Rommel page answers a question I had about whether the rules can be used for D-Day style games.

In the game descriptions (which seem to be duplicated), I'd suggest including some detailed information like:

Unit size represented (or range of sizes) per stand
Turn represents how much time
Ground scale ...which I have come to realize for some rule sets may be flexible but there still needs to be something to get that across like brigade width = X yards so a prospective buyer could calculate
Size of battles—most rules are not really designed for either extreme, the largest Civil War battle and a skirmish too.
A bit about the rules, like turn sequence and especially unique features

Are they going to get it where you stay logged in?

We've given up on that. The Log-In (to the site) was attacked by literally thousands of hackers from India and Russia over the course of the new site's first three days.  We tried installing a CAPTCHA security for login, but that didn't stop them. They created hundreds of fake memberships that we had to root-out one at a time.

Then it dawned on me:  There's no need for anybody to login to the home page.   There's a secure login for the online store, and the Forum has its own login elsewhere, with its own member creation process.

So I got rid of the login for the home page; it was the only sure-fire way to stop the hackers, without buying lots of expensive software and paying somebody to fight them every week.
