New RSS Feeds

I added created new RSS feeds on Feed43.com for the main page's latest news and homebrew releases since the other ones seemed to be broken. These work fine.

For the Latest Homebrew I used:

     Global Search Pattern:
  <span class="mw-headline">Latest Homebrew Releases
  {%}
  <td class="MainPageBG"
     Item (repeatable) Search Pattern:
  <li> <b>{%}</b>: {%}</li>

and for the Latest News I used:

      Global Search Pattern:
  <span class="mw-headline">Latest News
  {%}
  <a name="Latest_Homebrew_Releases"

and the same item search pattern.

New page design

Please leave all comments on the new page design here. --Blooper (Talk) 03:09, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

I like this layout much better. It looks more organized. I also re-did the RSS feeds to match the new layout and added more functionality to them. --Shadow1643 18:06, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Could someone help reword the welcome section? It needs some work and I'm not very good at it. --Blooper (Talk) 20:48, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

Update banner

I have created a banner for the main page that warns against updating. Feel free to edit it to add relevant links and reword it. --Blooper (Talk) 20:50, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

The warning was removed from the main page. Although there's an HBC update, marcan's entry on hackmii.com states that "even with beta9, I don’t recommend that you update unless you need to. You can use Muzer’s or tona’s installer to install IOS51 and the new Wii Shop only, which will keep all the old vulnerable IOSes too." Is removing it a sign that Wiibrew no longer suggests that you don't update, or is it just impractical to leave the message there forever? I don't really have a preference, I just felt like it might warrant some discussion. AerialX 02:37, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
I don't think it should be removed yet, but instead updated to point to the IOS51/Wii Shop patch, which I have done. --Blooper (Talk) 04:19, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

The New Notice

I think you should reword the part that says "Almost everything they sell is freely and legally available here". That "almost everything" implies that there is something in that package that is unique, and may intrigue people to buy it for that content not included in the "almost everything". Now, I know that the content included in that package is a backup launcher/whatever you need to use it, and I know we dont endorse it, but we could probably word it in a way that implies that there are things in the package that isnt on this site, but that those things are illegal. Something like "Almost everything they sell is freely and legally available here, and the rest are illegal applications and content that goes against international copyright laws". Also, there should be a link to the blog post for further info. oops_ur_dead 23:27, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

A simpler way to phrase this could be by replacing "Almost everything" with "All legitimate applications and content". This gets the point across in just a few words, and casts anything added by the scammers into a more negative light by implying that it not only could be illegal, but also bad or malicious in some other way. Just my idea, hope it helps. :) --PunMaster 04:57, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
