Much needed facelift for ChristianForce.NET

Over a year ago, I retired from World of Warcraft after having played for seven years. People like Shea Provines and Tom Taylor stepped up in my stead to continue leading our World of Warcraft guild along with a lot of the day-to-day functions of the clan as a whole.

Restoration in Process

However, our website needed work and I was the only one who could do it — and I really didn’t. Yesterday, that changed. I’ve begun a major renovation on the design and content of the website. I also plan on walking Shea through the process of posting updates so that we can continue to keep our web presence fresh and active.

In the redesign, my aim was to make the site more professional and clean, while keeping with the lighter, welcoming look the old design was aiming for. I’ve also updated information about what games we’re playing including, of course, World of Warcraft, but also other games that I and others continue to play like Borderlands 2, Team Fortress 2, Supreme Commander, and several others.

My hope is to encourage more Christian gamers to join our fellowship whether they are playing World of Warcraft, or want to join us for other games. Strengthening the body of Christ and discipleship are our top aims.

Writers Wanted

I’m also looking for current guild members interested in writing guest blog posts for the website. The topics of interest would be the guild in general, World of Warcraft, and our Christian faith. If you’re interested, contact me, Matthew and we can talk through some ideas.

Pardon Our Dust

The website will be a little messy over the next couple of weeks as we put our new website into full swing. If you notice any significant issues please leave a comment on this thread or email me at Matthew@ChristianForce.net

Current Known Issues

  • Logging in and out through the forum interface is currently resulting in a white page.
  • Guild Application is missing…working on that. Visit this forum if you wish to apply.
  • Demo images haven’t all been replaced.

Lightbox Added

So, I added a Lightbox to the images. It’s a little thing we take for granted, but it’s a nifty little polish to the website. What is a lightbox you might ask? It’s this thing that allows images to load on the page with a nice interface instead of taking you to just the graphic file. As an example click some of these nifty images below.
