Community Spotlight, Week of 7-19-10

Community of the Week

This week's Community of the Week is HIM Addicts. It was created by Magik as a community site for fans of the Finnish band HIM..

HIM Addicts are passionate about what they enjoy, and the site reflects this. You're greeted by a high quality image that serves as both an introduction for why the site exists and a centerpiece for the rest of the design. The rest of the site's design uses the same color scheme, tying everything together to make for a great presentation. As you scroll down the page it's obvious that the community comes first, which is fitting for a website. The structure of the page is inviting, and helps users understand what to do next.
Congratulations to HIM Addicts!
There are seven more sites that will be featured until our next Community of the Week voting begins, the winner of which will receive $120 worth of free Spruz upgrades and more! If you'd like a shot at our next round of rewards post an introduction that follows the guidelines we've provided.
Suggestion of the Week
This week's suggestion comes from rwanger who would like to see the ability to allow users to subscribe to the Blog element without using RSS, automatically sending them an email whenever a new blog has been posted. Users would have the option to subscribe to the Blog feature if they like, and remove themselves at any time.
As always we want to hear what you think about each idea. If you've thought of a feature you'd like to see added to the Spruz platform feel free to post it in the Idea Room. Remember to make it as detailed as possible; all topics must be approved before they'll appear.
Tip of the Week
This week's tip by KuruptGaming x shows you how to add "spoilers" to a page on your website. The technique is often used by forums to hide large blocks of text or images, making pages load faster and improving the overall user experience.
If you have any tips please post them in our Tips and Tricks forum!
