Motto : Say what you mean.
Diamonds Diamonds : 256


So I think we need a little freshening up and since I also want to fix the bank, I want to change a few things on our Home page. First of all I want to figure outa  spot to put member advertisements, so please leave suggestions for good places. Second I think that it's likely most members don't use the bottom masonry blocks anymore, maybe some of you do though. Let me know what you think, if we should get rid of those all together and try something new or just make some changes!

Different Things to Possibly Add:
News Section: Covering info from my blog and the latest site changes/updates
Stats Section: Site statistics such as Top Posters this month, Top posters this week, Number of Posts/Topics/Users
Society Reader Section: A small version of the SR on the Home
Contest Section: Info on the Latest Contest
Challenge Section: Info on the Newest Challenges

If you have other ideas for stuff to add, leave a comment!

Update everyone: As you see I've made some changes to the home now, I'm also contemplating adding some other sections. I'm looking to possibly add a link for members to advertise ds or share it with their friends. I recently re-did the coding for our Advertise Us page and added it to the site footer. I think it needs to be more noticeable around the site though so members get friends to come. I also created an option where members can have a special invite sent to their friends emails also, with the incentive of 500 points when members get friends to join!
For those who are interested here is the Advertise Us page now: http://www.designerssociety.net/h46-advertise-us
Suggestions on ways to make it noticeable on the site, lemme know (possibly on home page or side menu)

I think some advice on how to start using the site would be great. A little graphic on home page or hints for newbies to navigate the site would help.
It could be confusing for new members when they start out.

@Leandra I really like the font changes on the navigation and the new emojis!! I was wondering if the other diamond that was there can be brought back? I just really liked it
Also the bank is nice but will there be ads for sr put in the bank sometime soon? Would be nice to include adverts for sr
As always thanks for all you do and I love ds!!

@BBates Glad you like it, Im currently making some small updates to things so everyone will probably notice changes in the nav and other things. I can see about adding the old diamond back too! Also yes there will be more in the bank eventually including sr ads happy 3
Note to everyone about the new emojis, now we have a hashtag system so if you comment # liked or # happy it will show the emojis! Diamond Liked happy
