Opinions/ideas anyone?
Well, I personally think, this design here is very cute.
It's simple and it looks good :)

I like that design as well.

Do want.

Justin approves.

Carry on.

Oh and possible navigation, I would prefer it to be a mouse over drop down menu, like, when you mouse over the button, a drop down menu appears.

something like that works?

I have already planned to do subnav, but different from your drop-down subnav.

Will both be on one page, else there will be too little an amount of information to a page.

Putting "About" and "Credit Artwork" under "Game Information" is a good idea. Though I had already planned to use subnav for this.

Can all fit on one page, sorry.

There isn't much in the way of wallpaper. So Wallpaper and Screensaver will become one section. Can't have a page with nothing but a single link for content.

I wanted "Forum" as a main nav item. Though "Fan Works" would be a better main nav item for fanart. Records will be under "Game Information".

Just posting quickly to say I've been busy with Uni work pretty much since this thread started so I haven't really had any time to think up ideas. That and I don't really know anything about web design anyway -_- So I'll probably just see what comes up and stick with that, most stuff looks pretty good so far, although I'd say try to avoid redundant stuff that might not be relevant to the site just as it gets up and running.
Oh, will there still be forum styles to choose from on the new site or not?

EDIT: And why is it that I always seem to make posts that start a new page? >_>

At the moment the plans dosen't inlucde the updating / refreshing of the forums in anyway.
updating / refreshing could take about 1 - 2 months to get it right and perfect.

So nice and short:

No new Styles =P

We are just working on the site for now. The forum move is a separate thing.

Will go in the "About" page. Screenshots is not something you would download but rather view.

Should "Music" be just a listing under "Game Information", download links under "Downloads", or both?

Can you guys help me with something? I need a whole bunch of sceenshots to decorate the "About" page. Too lazy to do it myself. (note: don't save them as jpeg files, png will do)

Any size. Cave story works in either 320x240 or 640x480. Both sizes can be resized into the other.

Thanks. :mad:

Wouldn't mind some boss fight screens, screens with bullets onscreen, cutscenes, some location variety, and a picture of chinfish. I need to be able to show what cave story is in a set of screenshots. If you can take as many as possible so that I have heaps to choose from that would be great.

How 'bout vids?

But that requires linking to Youtube, but that's all, and no need to search for vid threads.

Or probably just sticky vids thread and let's just link from there, but important or pwnage vids will be harder to find.

Maybe, like:

Vids

>Hell(speedrun)
>Fun(others like glitches, tricks, "just as planned")
