BEFORE YOU POST, read this!

This thread is for the discussion of site expansions only. It is primarily intended for staff members. Please keep it clean of jokes, derailment and other nonsense. If you have a suggestion or criticism, please tell us in this thread only after wording it carefully and reading all of the proceeding posts. Unruly comments in this thread will be immediately voted down and then deleted.

The new Slender Nation is going to be opening soon, and it's a hugely exciting time for all of us. what was once only a forum will quickly become the only website devoted to all things Slender Man on the web, and the worlds first Web 2.0 mythology devotion center presented in multimedia. Sounds ambitious and complex, right? IT IS. Have a look at some of the new features we're implementing

Homepage
Slendernation.com will not redirect to this forum forever. When we are done, getting here will take an extra click, and that click will be from our Homepage, a big shiny welcoming collection of up-to-the-minute RSS feeds for every major series, links to all of our departments, hotlinks into the forum and a myriad of other things. I am designing this element personally, and we are discussing either Wix or a page here on Forumotion as the source. Designs are underway.

Youtube Channel and Ramsay Review
The Slender Nation YouTube account will be a part of this project. We will be hosting audio/video reviews of various media hosted by the Doc, myself and Judge as well as pertinent information on Slenderverse happenings. This is primarily the Doctors effort.

Wiki
We now own a wiki at http://slendernation.wikia.com . We need the help of the community to fill it up with content regarding all things Slender Man. This wiki will link seamlessly in and out of the forum and provide what we hope to establish as the largest and best knowledge database on the subject of Slender Man available. It is also unique in being an exclusively In Game endeavor, with no acknowledgement that the legends are anything less than real. In fact, the entire site excluding the forums will be designed bearing in mind an atmosphere of realism.

Forum
You're on it, and don't worry, it's not gonna change much if at all. What it will do is grow, to fit the influx of new members this site expansion should entail.

Other Media and Your Ideas
Twitter account, Facebook fanpage and every other detail we can think of to make our ownership of the mythos complete. If you have an idea, present it. We want to hear, and if you're staff we six times as much want to hear.

Staff thoughts and intelligent discussion. Go.

The Wiki will obviously be the biggest and most difficult element of the new SlenderNation to complete. I don't think I'm speaking out of turn here when I say; if any of you know anyone who can contribute to it, ask them to. We need this done, and the more skilled hands we have working on it, the better.

Did anyone think of a blog for the site? I'm just throwing things at this thread I think may help expand. And a blog might be useful.

Also, maybe on the homepage different people of the staff could update on recent happenings on the site. I remember when I used to play World of Warcraft and I saw on their homepage that different people were posting updates. I can't really describe the feeling, but it was a good feeling knowing there wasn't only one person managing the site, and that they had a supportive staff.

Judge, the homepage will be 100% self-updating, but the individual pages and sections will show signs of individual management.

I have several blog related thoughts, but those will wait a little for now.

Okay, that's good. I know I always like to see everyone involved so I can recognize them again and know they're in charge. Also knowing that there isn't just one person running it is good to know.

Will there be a way for people to subscribe to what shows up on the homepage? I think that'd be kinda cool, for extra availability and accessibility.

I think Judge's got the right idea about the subscribing to site updates and stuff. D: Maybe like a mailing list or something.

The only other major hubs I can think of are twitter and facebook. There's LJ but that would seem kind of redundant once all is said and done...

If the front page is going to function like a blog, we can always just set up a feedburner account...

Judge Claude Frollo told me to post this here...

What about a fiction forum? A forum where people (such as myself) can post, write, or create fiction relating to the Slender Man (or maybe possibly not even related to our Eldritch amigo) that is not in the form of a vlog, blog, or what have you. That would be really cool.

Chicken, I would suggest just sticking to Slender Man with it. When you get into other supernatural stuff, then it's more like CreepyPasta, and we don't really want that, because it'll be like copying them. If we stick to Slendy, though, this could be a fantastic idea.
