So, I just joined a clan! Huzzah!

The clan welcome page has a lot of stuff on it:

* MoTD
* a chatting area
* recent news about clanmates
* description of clan

This is a lot of stuff for one page. I thought I'd suggest these could maybe be separated somewhat.

Maybe like this:

* description of clan gets its own page (doesn't update often)
* MoTD and recent news is what you see when you enter
* chatting area gets its own page (facilitates chitchat)

What you (for 'you' read 'I') want is different rooms in the clan halls. Isn't it? Eh? Eh? Eh?

Well, since "pages" are effectively "rooms", I guess that is what I was thinking, yes.

I think I would have the clan description be represented by a plaque on the wall you can read when you enter the entrance hall. The chat room would be a separate room, maybe "the rec room" or something like that. Looking at the MoTD and the recent news, I think that actually looks like it might do best as two pages. I guess I'd put MoTD right in your face when you enter, so you can't miss it.

Oh, here we go! In the rec room include "pick up the newspaper", and that directs you to a page with recent accomplishments of clanmates.

So, yeah. I'm proposing separate pages (rooms/plaques/newspapers/what-have-you). Mostly because it would make things more readable.

Yes, but what they(we) are trying to do is corrupt what you're saying to having things more like two separate chatrooms in the hall that you can decorate (make your own description for) and mess around with.

Don't worry, I'm sure all of us agree with your idea of splitting the news into a newspaper and such (it is a fantastic suggestion), we're just trying to pressure Dan into multiple chat areas and more fun describing of the halls, etc. :3

Or even just move the news to the membership roster page.
It would make sense there.

I think it would look a lot better if the news was simply put under the "current description" and "Membership details." as opposed to above them. I don't mind them being on the same page.
