We have redesigned the homepage and the main changes are:

- News Filter Bar: On this bar you can select what kind of news you want to see on the homepage. The options for now are: All news, ArmA, ArmA2, Missions or WIP.


- We also added an Information Panel:


This panel contains a direct access to a list of all news grouped by months, a new feature "Calendar & Events" (we will talk about this later on), link to the patching guide and to a page where you can see all ArmA2 videos released.

The Calendar & Events is a new "tool" we want to introduce to the community. This will help people to find and/or promote clan gaming nights, MP sessions, etc. You can also find official dates (releases, ...).


The first view is the calendar where you will be able to quickly find the events. At the bottom you can see a link to add a new event and another to see a list of all events (incoming or passed ones).



There is also a User Submissions Panel which people can use to submit news or files. You can see also a link to a submissions guide and a page where you can find how to use the bbcodes.



Using the old skin:
The old skin you all know is still avaialable to the registered users in a few days. Go to your profile and under "skin" select "madden international". Keep in mind the old skin is no longer supported by us. Things are missing there and also some text might look bad.
In time I will remove the old skin though, but for now to those who don't like changes you can still use it ;)
For now everyone is forced to use the new skin!

Good job from what I can tell so far. I like the bright design much more then that dark one we had before. The new filtering is kicka$$, it's good to filter finished stuff from WIP or missions. :)

The only thing that is (still) not fixed is the narrow design of the website/forum. On a widescreen display @ 1680x1050 it only uses 50% of the screen. Guess it's by design and you can't change. But other than that I like the new design much very. :)

Great job.

Now all you need to do is make it so when I sign in it doesn't revert me back to the old website. D;

I've cleared the cache! Yes! When I log out I get the new one. When I log in, I get the old one. :|

[edit]
Ok, nvm. I changed it on my profile settings. :D
I am quick. :blush

Very um.... new techy 0_o more like a VBS 2 site or sumthin but it definetly is a change !

All pity choked with custom of fell deeds: And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge, With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war; That this foul deed shall smell above the earth With carrion men, groaning for burial.
