Does anyone still check the News?

For all things regarding the website and forum, like suggestions, support, or just pointing out all our terrible mistakes.

Does anyone still check the News?

Post by SupSuper » Wed Jan 13, 2016 12:53 pm

I've been thinking of hiding the News section or just remove it entirely. Nobody active on staff (aka me) keeps up with Team17 news anymore, and a website with old news looks bad. I imagine most visitors just come for the downloads or this cozy little forum hidden out of sight. :P

What do you think? Should I just hide it or is anyone else interested in posting news?

Yeah, my bookmark is right on the forum index. I tend to forget the entire rest of Dream17 is here, if I'm being honest. :|

If you rename it to Blog, that would eliminate the 'new' problem. How about making a new front page that had a little bit of everything, eg. brief list of softography contents, latest 'blog' post, widgets showing what Team17's posting on Facebook or Twitter, what topics are active on the forum. Or if that's too complicated, just make Softography+ the front page.

I read it, but +1 vote for a new front page as Bloopy suggests.
