Re: Debian Games Team website
Hey Markus, thanks for replying!
I made some changes according to your suggestions and minor tweaks:
- The homepage has a "Featured Game" section, showing information
on a specific game. It's currently written by hand, but will be
a template to whatever game the server selects.
- I've also added more pages, according to the links you pointed out.
There's "Tasks", with a dummy content based on the package list
and "Statistics", with the contents of the current statistics page.
- About the "Tasks" page, I did not add the entire contents of the
task lists; it's merely an example. The links on the Table of
Contents work (at least for "Adventure" and "Tetris") and it
would be nice for the server to count how many
- When you choose a theme it gets applied to all pages through a
so I thought "why not"?
- Speaking of theme selection, I intended to leave it temporarily
so everyone at the Games Team could agree on the best theme.
I didn't think of leaving it to the user, but if this is
something you guys prefer then ok.
In the end we'll make the server directly provide the stylesheets
- The navigation bar automatically hides when you scroll down, but
appears again when you scroll up.
I totally agree on the contest idea. I could make a page specifically
to promote it, with current submissions and ideas.
As of the logo, I prefer the Joystick one :P
Finally, as the complexity (and page number) of this site grows, I
start to wonder how would it be implemented on the back-end.
I suppose all the other Debian pages uses PHP, so I'd like to know
more about the server-side API that gets information from the
As soon as I get that I can upload the site and model it to show
real-time information on the Games Team.
