None of the links work, nor has the CSS been adjusted to work in IE (so if you’re not looking at this in Firefox, then you’re not seeing what I’m intending for you to see).
The header and footer are intended to carry over to the forum, wiki, and bug reporter, which will help give us a uniform look across them. For the wiki, you can see sort of what this would look like here:
The two major differences between FF and IE are that you won’t have rounded
corners on the “road signs” or a 3-column layout for the news in IE, because
both of those are achieved using some CSS3 attributes which IE doesn’t
support yet. If we thought this was very important, I could probably hack
together something which would achieve the same effect in IE, at the cost
of some time, my sanity, and long-term maintainibility of the code.
I’ve fixed all of the errors except the missing alt attributes, which I’ll
do later. The primary problem was not having a title element as a child of
the head element. The message you get when you forget to put in a title
element is rather misleading, as it focuses on having mismatched tags. It’s
only in the second paragraph where it mentions that this can be also be
caused by omitting a mandatory element.
Well, the main thing would be to try to get a grid-like alignment of
the elements in the two columns. Now, depending on the dynamics of
the columns, that may not really be possible in the long run, but
just from looking at the prototype I would try to align like:
~~~~ ~~~~ ~~~ ~~~~ ~~~ ~~~~~~~
~~~~ ~~~~ ~~~ ~~~~ ~~~ ~~~~~~~
~~~~~~ ~~ ~~~~~ ~ ~
+------+ +------+ Get Involved
| | | | ~~~~~ ~ ~ ~~~ ~~ ~ ~ ~
+------+ +------+ ~~~~ ~~~ ~~~~~~~
In other words, try to align headings across columns if it makes
sense. But since that really depends on the content and the size of
the images, I don't know if it will turn out to be practical or not.
But from the mockup, it looked like alignment would be possible
between the "What games are there?" and the "Get Help" and also
between the images undewr modules and the "Get Involved" header.
Also, the capitalization policy for headers needs to be consistent.
So either use "What Games are There? or "Get help", "Get involved",
As I said, there are really minor layout/alignment tweaks.

Do you mean that you don’t see any way to get an RSS feed? Or that the
RSS feeds for the page and the news don’t work? (The latter is the way
it’s supposed to be right now, since none of the links go anywhere yet.)
There are two of them—one which is for the whole page, which I see at the
end of the address bar in Firefox, and the other which is just for the news,
which I see at the end of the “Latest News” heading. I think it would be
misleading to put the news feed anywhere else, since it’s not a feed for
the whole page.
The current site has a login PLUS a forum login.
Judging by new layout if all is to be integrated, with forum link in header
bar, there needs to be a universal login, possibly front page which can put
you in the forums without a need to login again to access forums.
PHPBB is a pain in this regard for integration but there are scripts that
bridge this divide. Would do well to have a seamless single user login for
all areas of website - modules, announcements, forums, custom etc…
The other half (being web design) is now opining These aren’t my words!
She finds the 2 column / 3 column split funky.
Also while it works in FF there is an alignment problem with the 3 column in

news is prominent, pertinent information for users but should pop out
immediately without scroll, but this does conflict with standard unchanging
Her thoughts are you already have to scroll therefore:
Content 1 side, News other. Possiibly resized as needed ( content wider,
news narrower etc…
