Suggestion Changing The 'Showcase' Area To A Board?

Hey there.

As you may know, there is a 'Showcase' button on the CF Homepage which re-directs you to the Media-Section of CF to look at all of the Showcased stuff. In my Opinion, I don't really think it works well when re-directing to the Media-Section. The reason I say this is because people get a view of the Image first(Which is what they came for) but then they end up having to scroll down to learn more about it. And some of the Descriptions aren't even detailed, not to mention that most of what is Showcased are just Forums and Links to them.

I think if you change the Showcase-Area to a Board then it could get more attraction. Not to mention that it will probably give Users more of an incentive to write a bit more detail about what their Project is.

I think the best way is to do this:
  1. Forums cannot be Showcased.
  2. The User must give some Details about what the Project is.
  3. The User must also post a couple of Screenshots of their Project in action.
I think doing what I've listed above could make the Showcase-Area being engaged in a bit more.

This is just both my Opinion and Suggestion on the matter. I think it would be best to convert it to a Board and just leave the Media-Section to things like Audio and Videos.

This is probably a good idea, not really seeing any use coming from the current showcase layout and I think this would help re-engage interest in showcasing.

I do believe that it is a good Idea. The Showcase section hasn't been used in months now and there is virtually nothing interesting being Showcased apart from Websites and Game-Engines.

As I said in this Post(Under my previous Account, of course), I think it's best to not allow Forums to be Showcased. Actual Projects that are built with Code(HTML, Java, C etc.) should only be allowed.

I agree with you. I’ll make some changes soon!
