Hello fellow Dawi Zharr.
Something is happening to the main page! Xander was kind enough to give me a crash course in PHP, FTP and HTML. Very nice skills to have indeed and it have allowed me to do some updates on the main page.
Main Page Updates
Golden Hat Galleries
The first thing done, is updating the Golden Hat gallery section of CDO. Multiple contest links were ‘broken’ - as in simply never been finished. That’s fixed now. And hopefully I’ll find the time to keep the gallery updated with the next competitions.
So why not jump over there and scroll through some CDO history. There are some truly beautiful miniatures hiding in the Golden Hat Galleries.
I you find some mistakes or errors please let me know.
Age of Sigmar
Xander have updated the main page with a link to ThommyHs warscrolls for Age of Sigmar. Great work by both of them. So the warscrolls can now be found through the main page under “fan-made army lists”.
Next up is adding more beautiful member army showcases to the main page - get some of those medals pinned to users. If you have any suggestions post them here or write me a PM. We already have a few selected in Staff, but we are definitely forgetting some.
We also want to add “galleries” for Artisan’s Contests and Scribe’s Contests. Perhaps even a collection of images and a map showing the exchanges of Emissaries made across the world!
Thank you for your time
After updating the GH galleries, I would like to give a very large thank you to Xander, Nicodemus and Cornixt. Updating and making those pages takes a lot of time. It’s tedious and time consuming work, clicking between multiple programs and tabs.
It’s no wonder those updates haven’t been completed. Thank you for the effort you have put in there - building all this.
This taken into consideration, it might be some time before the new pages are done and uploaded. As all the time used for website updates are taken from time that could be spend painting, converting and playing with my own Chaos Dwarfs.
The Forum in the Age of Sigmar - Forum tagging
A few members have brought up the possibility of updating the CDO forum. Merging some sections and expanding others. The wish have seemed to be having sections for Age of Sigmar, 8th Edition and Kings of War.
We are discussing it in staff and have some ideas. But before merging or expanding anything we’ve decided to wait a bit. See if there’s really any need - as traffic haven’t really expanded yet.
The important thing is this: CDO has room for all hobbyist liking evil dwarfs. If that love is shown through 8th Edition, Age of Sigmar or Kings of War. Chaos Dwarfs Online has room for it all.
We suggest people start using tags when making new threads, when appropriate, that’s when talking rules, army lists or battle reports. So you should add the following:
[AoS] = my thread is about Warhammer: Age of SigmarScribe’s Contest IV
[8th] = my thread is about Warhammer: 8th Edition
Remember to vote for Scribe’s Contest IV. We had a decent amount of very well written prophecies for this one. A quick and great read.
Keep your furnaces hot and your steel sharp.
