I find it pretty good but that might be because it's me who made it. You're free to apply for making a better one though, I won't hinder you.

I think a good use of time at the moment, would be creating a new Revora site, implementing the articles system, Revora downloads and hosting information. Its time to tighten up what we have, make everything look good and run smooth and essentially get our house in order. Once that's done we really need to focus on creating systems to make hostees lives easier. This will help when we try and attract new hostees and set up new divisions.

A system I'd strongly support would be building a system that sets up each Hostee with a 'Summary' type page on the relevant network hub when their membership is approved. This could then subsequently show project news using Masternews and also on their summary page show a basic understanding of the project and links to the forum. This would then serve either as an interim, allowing a hostee to have a web based presence whilst constructing their own site, or allow them to focus on the project and not needing to create a website as well. Were this to be successful, I would perhaps restrict new hostees from having webspace until proving a modest level of interest.

I used to call this "Perfection", the last one was Perfection 5. It stopped at 5 when Revora was born. I think the only reason it stopped was everyone hated the name. But i'd say "perfection" sounds better in a news post than "tighten up" :D
In the days of Origin a perfection would happen about every 2 months.

Lol. Agreed. It's definitely something that needs to be done in my opinion, too much clutter thats dotted around and not needed.

What kind of clutter are you refering to? Specific examples would be helpful.

True... we should stick to whole franchises (if we already support them) and avoid creating a new division for every new game in that franchise. A redesign of the current hub would be more profitable, also because we don't need to need to build and advertise something from the ground up every time.

You mean: "A rebuilding of the current hub would be more useful to viewers" :p

A better example.

The answer to your CNC3 question is very simple: CNC3.Net.

CnC Guild covers The First Decade games. CnC3Files is not a Revora division. It is a hosted resource site. Mastermind takes care of it on his own. It doesn't suck other Revora resources.

No. I actually meant a redesign (as in, new look, new feel, etc.) and I was talking about it from a Revora perspective.

Banshee, the fact stands though that multiple divisions (i.e. sites) for the same franchise can only confuse people, especially as the Guild covers more than just one old C&C game. Having strictly one game per site would also have a some sort of order, but that's just beyond our possibilities and doesn't make much sense from an advertising point of view either (unless the previous site has repeatedly failed and you need a new image...).

But we do NOT have multiples divisions covering the same game.

In your last post you wrote in a way where division was simply a site. It is actually much more than simply a site.

Divisions are more than simply sites. They are the reference of the network for a certain subject, they control the part of the network forums related to that subject and the hosting service. They also represent Revora on external communities related to that subject.

Hosted sites are simply sites. Do not confuse division with that.

Yeah I wasn't very clear. That comment in parentheses referred to the visitor's perspective, i.e. what D thought I was talking about before.
