Suggestion - Change login screen information

Post by whoosh »

Hey,

Currently upon login you will be informed about discord, credits and github. I think this is outdated. Discord is no longer (was it ever?) the shared communication method for our community. Credits can be seen ingame, you cant click the credits link and hover text of credits is "click to buy credits" and github is old.

I propose that we change the login information to forums, wiki and discord.

My reasoning is as follows. The forums are the shared community method for our community and has a lot of useful debugging information, which is especially useful for new players. The wiki has been upgraded considerably thanks to Szu and has great ingame information and discord coz discord.

I'm assuming most people will agree to change the login information, so post your ideas about what we should show and why.

Dont particularly need the credits. I mean it's nice there but the shop shows you how many you have. I could update the getting started and credit page on website to state this

@ryannathans why credits? They don't currently play a big role, but I think if we had credits, we could link to a forum post or so that describes how to earn credits and hopefully get people participated in the reporting and testing of stuff etc?

yeah for sure, we are just waiting on the credits machine to get fixed and then we are back in business with credits for testers/contributors

Hmm, at the risk of going off topic, should we fold the `game_guide` into wiki? It seems a bit confusing to have a wiki + game guide

This was just how the original jagex layout was. I only used it to serve nostalgia and authenticity.
