    ... you should go to the backer forum if you haven't already.

    There are likely issues with the permissions.

    There are likely issues with us not knowing what the hell you're talking about.

    I don't have access, then again I never backed the PoE item so I don't if this is a polite way of rectifying that.

    If so, you're all big meanies and I'll have a mighty sulk.

    Nope, though I did get the Nasrudin Incarnate trophy which I presume was meant to give access? Or unless the forum is now located somewhere else (i.e. not above News Comments), I have a habit of only looking for things were I've seen them previously. Still I had a look and I can't see it elsewhere.

    Has it? It's gone for me, and it looks like I've destroyed the forum. I cannot into html much in the same way that Poland cannot into space.

    If you've fixed this with HTML, you are an HTML god. :D

    If anything this should inform you about my level of ignorance. Why do you think we still don't have a front page?

    Because it was completely dependent on the forum software, and none of those of us who actually know how to know how to fix it, cares enough to actually do it.

    Would there be much point in completely overhauling the front page anyway? To be honest, GameBanshee (and other places around the internet) offer better walkthrough information than was ever present on the home page here. I'd imagine all that would be necessary would be a prominent link to the download section, a prominent link to the forums, and then just a news feed on anything IE/Arcanum/Trokia/Interesting-Kickstarter relevant based on administrator discretion.

    I have no idea how much work would be involved in something like that though, and I'm also not presuming any one would want to take chunks out of their free time to organise such a thing (I'm a believer of the idea that everyone's time has intrinsic and monetary value for their expertise, and obviously efforts towards making a home page has a cost in terms of time which understandably people may not want to pay).

    You're quite right. A news feed and some links, that is all we need really.

    I enjoyed and used the map/places links quite a bit.

    What first sprang up in my mind when I read Japes' post.
