New Poll: Community Tab Homepage? 02 Jul, 2002, 15:05 / 17 comments

The former poll, Which fanclub would you join?, has ended. Tim Schafer has destroyed all with 40% of the voters choosing him. Ron Gilbert came in second with 25%. Spaff and "I love them all" fought it out for third at around 12% each, and "they all make me cry" got fourth with 6%.

Those who voted for Simon Jeffery, Tom Sarris, Dan Pettit, or Earl Boen (all of which were the true winners, you just don't know who to vote for), need not fear, though, as you have another chance to be bunched in with the winners. Yes, that means there's a new poll.

The new poll is about our recently opened Community Tab, available at the top of the site. The new comunity area of Mojo features headlines from around the network, recent Mojo stories, and current activity on the forums. When designing this section we realized that it might make a very appealing homepage for Mojo readers. ... Or would it? Luckily, we have polls for things like this.

The poll asks: Would you be interested being able to set the Community Tab to replace the News Tab as "www.mixnmojo.com" in your user options? You can cast your vote by choosing from the options down in the right sidebar there.

    There's really no need for it that I can see. If someone wants community as their homepage, they can just have their browser point to its URL. I tend to find that most browsers don't like web sites that are more complicated than they need to be. :)

    BTW Why are the sites on the Hosted Sites / Categories (e.g. Adventure Games) not listed alphabetically? Do I have to pay money to get a better ranking ? :P

    What sense makes that order?

    They look alphabetical to me...

    i don't want to sound impolite but:

    Definitive MI
    DOTTcom
    Indy Museum
    Loom Island
    Snuckey's
    Dig@mixnmojo
    End of the Line
    The Kickstand
    The Mansion
    Ultimate Indy Jones
    Unofficial Sam and Max
    Plunder 3D
    MI Guide
    EscapeFromMI.com
    Polecat's Lounge

    ... that's how the sites are listed in the new community section/hosted sites/adventure sites ... at least that's what i see there.

    on the standard adventure site list on the left side of each page of mojo the sites are listed alphabetically...

    so it looks like this

    Definitive MI
    Dig @ Mixnmojo
    DOTTcom
    End of the Line
    EscapeFromMI.com
    Indy Museum
    Loom Island
    MI Guide
    Plunder 3D
    Polecat's Lounge
    Snuckey's
    The Kickstand
    The Mansion
    Ultimate Indy Jones
    Unofficial Sam & Max

    does my browser something strange to this site or am i right?

    It's because I forgot to add alphabetical listing in it. Thanks for the bug report. The problem is fixed.
  • matt on 04 Jul, 2002, 01:05…
    no problem :)

    Oops, I was looking in the site list, not on the community page. Durrrrrrrr.
  • DJG on 04 Jul, 2002, 13:37…
    Yarg.

    Eat a veggie burrito, you'll see. And fun plus four!

    I can't say that I'd use it (I like the news page, and am addicted to Mojo a tad too much) but someone else might like to use it. Someone out there...
  • QueZTone on 02 Jul, 2002, 16:26…
    i'll want to vote for what i believe in on this one! :D
  • telarium on 02 Jul, 2002, 15:29…
    This is the most exciting poll ever.
  • Jake on 02 Jul, 2002, 18:56…
    don't know about that but it's certainly the least comprehensible.
  • tabias on 02 Jul, 2002, 17:35…
    INDEED.
  • Jake on 02 Jul, 2002, 15:10…
    This is really a crazy hairbrain scheme of yours truly. Sadly I'm pulling a J.S. here, as I've only vaguely run this idea past DJG once or twice in passing and was ignored. So... that doesn't mean anything will come from this arguably worthless poll. Enjoy anyway, though!
  • DJG on 02 Jul, 2002, 15:59…
    heh.
  • BooJaka on 03 Jul, 2002, 11:39…
    Well put
