                Once upon a time, there was born a girl. Her name was Nora. Everyone knew when she was born that she was someone special, because she wrote lots of Stories about Dragons. Nobody believed her and her Stories, but she said she got visions about them and wrote that visions down. For a long time she had no friends or whatsoever, 'cause she was considered as a fool. But then there was Devo, a boy who lived in the same village and had a great fantasy. They became really good friends, and Devo was the only one who believed her. But about 13 years later, when Devo was 14 years old, Nora became really sick. Different recording doctors came by to see what was wrong, but they had no clue. Apparently she had a disease nobody had seen before. But then there was a mysterious doctor, named Japur. He and only he knew what was wrong, because this was happened to him before. He knew how to solve this. The only way to cure her, was to make the people believe in her Stories.

                  You will be playing Devo, the young and brave soul, and crawl into the books of Nora to get a piece of evidence of all of the Dragons in her books. Will you succeed?

Apparently only topics posted in News & Updates appear on the homepage. ;o

I think we should put one on the homepage as well. It would get more attention. The Featured Projects section could serve as a database of featured projects, and the homepage would be used as a heads-up.

I don't think we should.

Homepage is for news & updates. In terms of news, it's only one line:

The Project of the Month for August is Nora's Dragon Stories, by Japur.

If we put that up it'd be a waste. If we put a whole topic like this up it would be clutter.

The monthly newsletter will announce the PotM and it will show up on the homepage. Other than that, adding it to Featured Projects should be enough I think.

You can ask Roph if you like though.

It's your call. I guess posting it on the homepage isn't really that necessary if it's going to be in the newsletter. ;o

Well no, I think you're right - it would generate more interest if it was on the homepage. I just don't know if it's something Roph intends for the homepage. If he's OK with it then I think it'd be a good idea. But I don't know why he'd make a featured project section if he wanted project topics to show up on the homepage.

The second sentence.

I think the Featured Projects forum was for something entirely different that never really worked out.
