Main Page

Hi! If you want to help with main page design, please take a look at this page (it is not finished). I have no time for it currently (and tbh I kinda lack interest). But if you're going to experiment with it, please make a copy in your own sandbox (for ex. like this User talk:Toe head2001/<some page name>). --Ngng (talk) 07:28, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Looks pretty good. What all needs to be done to it before it's finished? --Toe head2001 (talk) 07:46, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
I planned to finish the bottom of the page (i.e. redo all the text at the bottom, correct grammar, etc...) and to add many category links to the middle of the page (possibly language links (for ex. Category:Games with English language), possibly special controllers links, maybe game genre links, etc...)). I don't know, I had some abstract ideas, unsure really if they are okay for the page. I think we can add links and icons later anytime. Right now it needs a nice looking bottom. --Ngng (talk) 08:26, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
There's another thing that bothered me about this page. DoctorMuerte made some nice looking icons but they all link to some external sites. It's not a good welcome page, when it tries to redirect you somewhere else right off the bat... --Ngng (talk) 17:42, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
The 'external links' are still part of PCSX2... they should be there. And the Developer Builds link for example helps users in obtaining the latest PCSX2 version as well. They're all useful links. There's absolutely no point in removing them, aside from removing useful information. Not to mention the fact that the same links are used on the current main page. -- Ryudo (talk) 21:10, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
I'm not against the links but they are the in the center of attention. "Welcome to PCSX2 wiki, if you're here by accident, please follow these convenient big links, sorry for wasting your time like this." --Ngng (talk) 22:28, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
On my copy of the page, I've moved those icons down to de-prioritize them, and added large icons for the 'Setting up' guides to the top of the page. --Toe head2001 (talk) 02:00, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
We've neither Linux nor Macintosh guide atm and I don't believe someone will finish them in the near future (too much work). --Ngng (talk) 06:42, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
