Exclamation Lack of organization?!

I've just notice, we are missing a decent front-end website. The current is great, but its missing a lot of content we had in the first version. Its also difficult to browse the content in its current structure.

I was trying to find LBA translations and couldn't find a unique place to get them all. How's that possible?! Are the newcomers or guests apart of all cool stuffs we have done for this games?!
I know I have on my website, also know Zink have on his site, ChaosFish, Battle, etc., but where do we have them here?!

This is just an example, but we should be concerned about this and slowly organize all its content somewhere lost in the attic of this forum.

Isn't ChaosFish's site the place for all translations?

But I guess it would be nice if the MBN grows with all things available...

And on that note, lets finally include after-finish challenges for both games
And I also like the idea of a wiki area on this front site, to put all the information that was previously on the other site (that's currently down).

Another great idea I hope to see happen.

Also, we should gather all interviews with the LBA team in one place, ordered chronologically along with translations (if necessary/possible).

I forgot ChaosFish site had all the translations, but at least a quick search could lead me to that site. If an old member like me forgot about this, I think the new ones don't even know this sites exists.

This ideas are quite nice, specially the interviews since TwinAdv isn't on air anymore.

I don't know if we can do such thing in the front page and also if El/DF agrees with it.
Lets see how people will react on it.

I think we need an information 'hub' consting of an introduction text about the LBA games and the community, info on where to get the games and all sorts of articles for people who are having trouble with running them. And maybe a nice tips & tricks section where ALL secrets/easter eggs are accessible organized, and also info about the common bugs and a complete walkthrough of both games with info on the story and a lot of screenshots. Additionally, all kinds of modding tools and fan projects are to be listed and made accessible in one place. I'm willing to participate in the creation of such a site if there's sufficient interest.

Oh, and it'd be nice to have Twinsunica back.

I still think (being one of the newer members here), that the frontsite of the MBN should be the place for all this info/meta.

It seems underused, and it could provide so much more.

Our problem is the lack of a chief for the project. We all just sit here willing to help, without really knowing what to do...

A lot of the things Renesans mentioned actually do exist on the site.

Yes, but they're scattered around the site, I think we should have everything in one place.
