New intro page name ideas (updated periodically)

Postby GizmoGuy411 » Mon 2009-03-09, 13:17:15

Here is a repository of names people have suggested for a new start page for NWOGEO.org.

This would be the first page that new users see. It COULD be called a "Welcome" page, however another page specifically designed to be used with the "Welcome Wagon" idea may need that name unless we find a way to merge them into one.


Starting Page Name Suggestions
[s]Central page[/s] *
Entrance page
First page
Foyer page
Front page
Front Door page
Front End page
Greeting page
[s]Home page[/s] (not an option due to name conflict with CMS)
[s]House page[/s] (see above)
[s]Hub page[/s] *
Intro page !
Lobby page or "The Lobby"
Main page
Meet and Greet
Openning page
Page I generally bypass :bat:
Splash page
Start page
Starting page
[s]Steering page[/s] *
Top page
Welcome page
Welcome Wagon® page (should not use due to ® )

[s]Welcome Wagon®[/s] Page Name Suggestions
New Cacher Greeting page
Welcome page
[s]Welcome Wagon®[/s] page (should not use due to ® )
Chariot Bienvenu page
Welcoming page


* These names convey ideas which are too close to the function of the internal CMS "Home" page and should not be used.

! The common name for the type of page we are discussing is an "Intro" page. It is often presented as a "Flash" presentation with the option to "skip the intro".

Personally I am leaning heavily toward calling our "intro" page "The Lobby" page.

What about "Home Page" for the first page and Welcome to NWOGEO page for the "welcome wagon" page. It's not exactly just New Cachers on that page, it could be new to NWOGEO, too!

The "Home page" name can not be used for our pre-CMS page as the name conflicts with the exisiting name for the "Home" page within the CMS software, which is not practical to change with the CMS.

Ok.. maybe we don't need a "Welcome Wagon" page in the way I was originally thinking. Rather than having a special page to send new people to, just send them to the intro page. We would still have a "Welcome Wagon" page, however it would be the page where we implement the "Welcome Wagon" concept of distributing our predefined "Welcome to NWOGEO.org" message via email to new people. It would be more like the instuction page on how to perform the Welcome Wagon idea.

Does that make sense to anyone besides me?

I know what you mean, having a page gear to a new cacher, explaining geocaching, our group and other fun things that will peak their interest. Then we can have a main page where we can find links to all areas of the site.
Our church belong to a site that is not very organize. Sometime it hard find your way back to the main page

Uhhhhh :?

I didn't quite follow the above, and I don't agree wtih Yogi that the XXXXXpage should be the one for the new cachers. I think the xxxxpage should be the general page, with a prominent link to a new user page.

On a related subject, would we get into copyright problems if we said 'Welcome Wagon"?
