I know there are some ROM info pages here... but nothing is linked from the main page! There's no way to start or get into the web of interlinked pages, lists, and crosslinked datafiles to start exploring. No alphabetical list, no links from the console pages, nothing.

Someone who actually knows whats on this site please post some links of the day, or some other guide of how to get started viewing information.

Each console page has links to lists of games for that console. You did not find this intuitive, so there is obviously something wrong with it. If you have a suggestion for a better way to set up the links either suggest it here or implement it. The main page is not currently protected. --AnyoneEB 22:31, 18 Oct 2005 (EDT)
Okay, I just did a bit more catagorization and now there is a "games" link under the "consoles" link. I think that makes more sense. Do you think that fixes the problem? A link-of-the-day is certainly a good idea; Wikipedia does it. --AnyoneEB 22:50, 18 Oct 2005 (EDT)
Customizing the nav bar would make site navigation considerably simpler, IMO. --Labmaster 23:35, 18 Oct 2005 (EDT)
Yeah, that is a bit more work with 1.4.x. I was looking into an upgrade to 1.5.x so it would easy to modify the navbar. (We certainly aren't using say the "Community Portal" link.) --AnyoneEB 06:46, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)
I'd definitely recommend an upgrade to 1.5.x as soon as possible, I've been using it on my site since its release a couple of weeks ago and haven't had any issues with it. --Labmaster 00:42, 20 Oct 2005 (EDT)

I agree actually. Having quick links to NES and SNES platforms, for instance, would make navigation much easier. Crawling through the current navigation just seems pointless... --Gavin 03:47, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)

I added links for each system's category pages to the main page, but I agree that it would be nicer for them to be on the navbar. --AnyoneEB 06:46, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)

I definitely agree; however, is there a way to make all consoles available on the navbar without making it long and incredibly cluttered? I know NES and SNES hacking are the most popular, especially right now, however I don't think we should be overly prejudicial towards any one console.--Gau 07:06, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT) There is a discussion going on about the format of the links on this page. If you wish to make a change, please at least explain it here. --AnyoneEB 16:48, 19 Oct 2005 (EDT)
