Title: Website suggestion
Post by: Kuudere on March 03, 2014, 10:29:33 AM
I just realized that there is actually no way to find the forums for Fanime attendees (other than brief mentions of specific threads on Facebook and maybe google search). Would it be possible to add a link to the forums on the fanime.com placeholder page? I know it'll be on the full website itself, but since we don't have an estimated date on its release, it'd be nice to at least have some form of direction for people who want to talk about Fanime with other attendees. I think it could also be beneficial to make a link to it on the social media's static pages ("about" page) so that people can find it.

Let's get some new people in here and remind the older ones where to find us!

I was also just about to suggest this. Many departments are already posting event tryouts/registration on the forum. This seems rather unfair to new attendees that might be interested in joining these events but wouldn't know to look here for information.

Can someone just please put the website up? It's frustrating.  :-\

It's also true that new attendees won't think to google "Fanime Forums" to find this information here.

Please post a link to the Fanime Forums on the website home page (only page). This was mentioned on the suggestion board but I really think it bears repeating.

There really should be a top-level site that's up year round with links to the forums, location, etc...

I have directed this to our webteam already, but I expect that they are quite busy getting the main page prepared and launched.

Thanks for the suggestion.

This.  There is no reason for a splash page not to be up year-round with pertinent links to the facebook, forums, etc.

ewu, can you light a fire under the webteam's collective butt??  because we're less than 100 days out from the con and having NO WEBSITE at this late in the game is really inexcusable for a con of Fanime's size.

Maybe you could pass it onto the Clockwork Alchemy web team, those guys seem like they're on the ball.  :|

Thanks! I'm glad to see that some other links are up there, too! I hope for next year they leave these up, because I know questions like "how do I apply for staff" are frequently asked (and I know there's never enough staff, so it's important to make it easy to apply).

For next year, the current plan is to just transition onto next year's theme without a silly one-page landing page.

(Also, as the Webteam's manager, I assure you that the fire under our butts are just keeping us warm. ;))

So as I am sure you guys have gotten constant emails about the website but I am curious what time frame are we looking at for the website? I understand there is usually some odd tech issue, not to mention this being the 20th year I am sure you guys are wanting to do it big. I just want to know because I have a lot of people including myself that is a bit frustrated by it all. Mind you this is my fourth year coming so I know this isn't a common thing for it to be so late. If this is taking awhile for the site to be ready for public viewing. Maybe someone can create a document with the lists of events and such things happening this year. I would even be down to help with that. Let us know what you need! this is by fans for fans and I am sure if you honestly put a all call for help for a specific project a few will gladly help.

Hello and good day,

So this is an idea I had. Why not use one of the old websites as a template temporarily until the official website is up. This shouldn't be that hard to make another site or use an older site. For example: 2010.fanime.com,  2011.fanime.com,  2012.fanime.com and 2013.fanime.com are still up and running as the previous fanimes are already over.

People want to know whats up!!!

Rewrite a little coding, change the skin/background/layout and add some info for us fans to be updated.

Are you guys ever going to get around to putting a schedule on the website?

In Fanime schedule tradition (this will make the 4th consistent year)They will, on the 20th some time after 7:00pm. Heaven forbid they put it over the weekend or Monday. A full day before day zero is plenty of time for attendees to plan out their weekend. /sarcasm.

About the Maps section.

Why is the DoubleTree map on the top?

This is the Fanime website, if we were interested in the layout for CA, wouldn't we be on their website?

Note to next year's WebTeam (I am hopeful that this year's crew will be fired) Orange is NOT a good choice for text color.

Suggestion: can you update the website now for 2015? Include links to the forums, Facebook, etc. Even if it does not include mascot art yet, at least there's a splash screen with information about next year.
