Homepage

The homepage does look nice, but could use some more refining (especially the right column). I formulated a Widget box to use and drafted up some widgets.

NOTE: These are just drafts, they can be tweaked.

Template:CharactersWidget

Template:GamesWidget

Template:DramaCDsWidget

Template:BooksWidget

Template:PollWidget

Template:TwitterWidget

I feel Tech Support links (actually, most of those external links) would be better placed in the Hatoful Boyfriend: A School of Hope and White Wings page under an External Links section since having it on the homepage doesn't really serve that much purpose considering people are more likely to land in the Hatoful Boyfriend game page when Google searching. I've learned very few people go on the homepage so it's better served as a means of advertising what's on the wiki.

In place of the Wiki Updates feed, I feel it would be better to have either a blog feed or a forum feed to better advertise those to visitors. Then people would be able to see what needs to be worked on rather than stuff that's already being worked on.

I actually have no idea what to do about the tech support or external links. I hadn't really thought about them until you mentioned it, actually. A blog feed or forum feed would work, I didn't realize that you could change it.

As for the widgets, I like them overall, but I agree that they still need to be tweaked.

Would it be preferable to just have plain boxes without the header bar and use the current heading or adapt the current boxes to the widget layout with the header bar?

I personally like the header bar, but I could go either way.

As a sidenote: I've been trying to track down the maker of the current headings, Plasterbrain, but it seems like the last time they edited any wiki was in September 2015... I want to find out what program/font/embellishments they used, but I may have to just keep an eye on their account until they start actively editing another wiki.

Does that count as Internet-stalking?

XD Not at all. I had to do some stalking myself to figure out the wiki's history.

I'm going to try something different with the widgets. They'll be derping out for a bit.

I'm getting closer. I found her blog, which she most recently edited in January 2016. I'll send a message to her tomorrow. Here's hoping she still remembers.

Alright, I've got the homepage decked out in the new widgets. The forum feed can't be edited so it's stuck with that white background. If you think some elements (i.e. borders, background color, font, etc.) don't look all that great in practice, let me know and I'll tweak things around.
