I recently completed a unit on web development at college and would consider myself quite knowledgable in HTML, CSS, JS and PHP (I have also messed with ASP.NET Core for an electron application).
I quite often check these forums etc and have felt like the website could be made to be more attractive to game developers.
I am not intending to criticise the current web design, I just feel like certain elements are a little bit old-fashioned, and I have one or two ideas in mind for the homepage at least.
I haven't got anything to put forth at the moment, but as Enigma means a lot to me, I want to make the face of the community and its website look more up-to-date as to not deter anyone who is looking for a "modern" software.
This would be more of a hobby project than something I'm looking to get much out of, but I'd like people's thoughts so I don't just develop something that nobody really wants or needs or cares about, since the current website is indeed functional, and there's not really anything wrong with it.
A lot of people also do not like redesigns of websites as change is always
bad. Even if it's for the better, adds new things, takes away nothing, then it's still bad.
So, I'm more intrigued to know if anyone is interested in any of the ideas I have so I know if there's any point in creating them.
My main motive for this post is that web design has really grown on me, so I'd like to work on something I'm quite passionate about, and the biggest thing I could think of that I've never not
been somewhat passionate about is Enigma, whether it is just usage of the software, ideas for my IDE (which is currently on hold as I'm intending to make it in Electron using an HTML frontend with ASP.NET Core backend), or other things such as this.
I'm going to start working on my ideas as of posting this, so if you're interested please post a reply including what you think of a redesign of the site and make sure you chip in any ideas you have. I'll post what I have either later this evening, or tomorrow, depending on what I get done, and what responses I get.
Part of me feels like I'm going to get negative responses because I seem to have a forte in accidentally offending people; my intention isn't to say "this web design is bad", it's more "I want to show some ideas I've come up with".
Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you have a nice day
