Default New sections

Hello,
Now that Tau Online has moved hosts, and Version 4 is out and stable, it's time to work on the main site's content. This is where you come in. I'd like to add new sections to the site to improve content a bit more. What sections would you like to see added to Tau Online? At the moment I have the following ideas: (Please feel free to agree/disagree and add suggestions to the below)

The nav bar will be split up into 3 headings (Instead of 2) These headings would be:

Tau Related
Other Armies
Misc. (Short for miscellaneous)

Then a few more sections would be added under these headings, so the nav bar would look like: (I'm modifying it as the suggestions come in)

Tau Related:
Background about the Tau
Hints on Starting a Tau Army
Tactics
Battle Reports
Painting Tutorials
Paint Schemes
Conversions
House Rules

Other Armies:
Battle Reports
House Rules
Tactics (Thanks to Arguleon-veq for the idea)
Any ideas? 3 sections for this heading is kind of pointless.

Misc.
Fluff/Stories
Scenery
Scenarios
Downloads
Articles


Site Map

[hr]
As you can see 2 new sections have been added above: Downloads, and articles. In the downloads section would be things like Wallpapers etc although I'm not sure about this section, because I can't think of what to put in it apart from wallpapers.. and in the Articles section would be as it says, articles about 40K, things like this is what I'm thinking of for the articles section.

Anyway these are my thoughts, I'd appreciate any comments/suggestions about the above and also please feel free to suggest your own sections, your own headings etc.

A few suggestions:-
-How about merging the house rules into one section.
-And how about putting a forum link on the side bar (just in case someone misses the link at the top.

-Sure, although which heading would the link then go under?
- Sorry but I think that it's easy enough to see as it is, repeating the same link again would look wierd IMO.
Thanks for your suggestions

You could put them under the miscellanous section.

How about a tactics section under other armies as this could do a lot in getting new people to register as members of tau-online.

Im personally a third of the way through an ulthwe tactica(3000 words so far), and would be happy to submit that to a new tactics section.

(p.s. what do you think of my new pic, better or worse thanmy old one?).

I've thought about this, and I think it'd be a good idea There's already quite a few 'Know your...' threads around these boards, and so there'd be no problem getting submissions for it. Thanks for the suggestopm

Sounds cool

I never seen the first one, I've only just switched on the option to view avatars in my profile.

When that section gets going is there any chance of submitting a tactica in sections? as this one could take a while.

What exactly do you mean? (Sorry, I'm fairly bad at interpreting things online)

Well if somebody is wants to submit a tactica but hasnt yet written it all, could they send just the HQ and TROOPS section.

Then later on they could send in the other parts(HEAVY SUPPORT etc).

This could also make it easier for people to read as they wont be put off by a huge article and they can read section by section as it gets added.

Yeah that'd be fine.
