Hi All,

The new site is almost ready to go up.  There are still some edits being made (e.g. on the home page it still has a floating "this is a paragraph" amongst the buttons and there are three default paragraphs on the retailer locater page that I'm editing out) but most of the content is in place.  Right now it's "live" on a preview address:

Please take a look and let us know any comments and in particular any errors.

Best,
Chad

There's an events page which I got to off the Battleground page, but the "events" button on the Home page doesn't work.

Errors I've found:

Battleground button on home page links to "About us" page.
Random paragraph on home page
Random paragraphs on retail locators
MKoT page has Tom Vasel video review before text but refers to video "below" in text.  Video should be moved to the bottom.
Evil Army button doesn't go anywhere.  (I need to create that page.)

Hi all,

I just want to let you know that this site will be a work in progress over the next month or so.  There are still a decent number of things that need to be done and we're excited that people viewing the site this week can go back on next week and see new content.  And the week after that.  And the week after that one...

Your thoughts and opinions are welcome as Chad has already pointed out.  Along with Chad and myself, Kaile and Corey (Hannibal) have been instrumental in making this happen so I'd like to thank them publicly.

I noticed that Danger Planet is listed as a retailer.

I thought they closed up... ???

The Retail Locator is the exact same text that's on the current site.  With that being said, it's grievously out of date and one of the things we'll be addressing in the following weeks.

Thank you, Marcus, Chad, Kaile and Corey. I don't have anything to add in terms of comments and errors ATM but if there is power on the bus I will be browsing the content with an eye for that sort of thing quite soon. Like leemie I primarily use firefox.

I think the latest rules and errata should be boxes on the BGFW page instead of their own tabs.
I also think a news feed would be a great thing for the front page. Posting up teasers of new faction, articles, and such.

I really like the layout of this site: http://www.plaidhatgames.com/

That's a great suggestion.  Kaile isn't here this week but next week I'll have her create some button graphics and we'll do that.
