I am not a youtuber, and I do not wish to become one, so I do not get that advantage of having a "comment" section for every update I do and I have no idea how the general public who reads my information, thinks about it. Which is why I'm going to experiment, and try to dedicate the front page as the "blog" page so I can have a place for people to say "you accidentally typed the sentence twice in your ________ guide", or "This part seems to be missing something and I can't understand it.". I'm here to improve my constructive guides and insight for the public view, and the advantage I have here compared to youtubers for example is I have more control over updating my information and content and expand it to be either simpler guides or super complex details instead of having to post "new" content every time. This website can expand things that are worth talking about or simplify a topic for those that want to understand like "How to use Clashcaller effectively" for example. All of these things are for the better, but here is where I need your help.
As of now, I do not know how many dedicated silent readers, or first time browsers I have. It might just be that I haven't had any dedicated readers at all, and people are just skimming my stuff, or the opposite could be true, where I have many dedicated readers that love my guides, I just don't know sadly :(. So with this post, I'm hoping to draw you guys out, and see a few of those dedicated readers to give a small shout and say "hey there," and not me being on my high horse and thinking all by myself, (it's quite lonely up here :P). You guys have the brightest voice to guiding me to what I should do next, so right now the first step is to make it so that you can can say what you want and comment on what I feel like I should do next, and express yourself as someone who is dedicated to my stuff. I'm going to suggest a few things right now, and any thoughts whether or not I should pursue them, expand the current guides more or even something that I didn't even noticed. For example my first comment about my website was that they hate the font I chosen and the theme that I did, LOL. I do somewhat agree but disagree with this though since I'm comfortable with this font style theme. But if there are enough people who say they hate this style in the Open Comment, I would probably change it. So please help me improve my website together and you can also see what's are the things I am able to/trying to do.
A big Section that will be part of the main topics (so along side of [Base Analyzing][Clan Management][Metaki Bases], where I feel like I can touch upon and gather all the information with regards to the trending/current development of the top war clans. The new topics and discoveries I have also discussions I have with others have really sparked a desired to organize and give it a place to be read by all. I still have no idea how to expand the sub-categories of this section, so you guys can help me out :)
So some subtopics might include:
I have been in sorta in touch with Clash With DaRT, a youtuber who uploads excellent videos that educates and explains with details such as [NEW Elite TH9 Attack Strategy: Surgical Hogs] or [How to 3-Star Metaki Bases]. I want to form a connection/link with more youtubers, elite warrers and those that have the goal to educate. Onehive is a popular example, but I'm not sure I can get in touch with them. I probably will just create a page for them anyways and nit-pick out those contents that interest me/ I feel like have a better value in teaching. I still am under a rock for when it comes to finding out the good educators such as DaRT, and I would wish to find more of these 'experts' so I can expand and share more. Doesn't have to a person, it can be just a video such as HulkFile's Holowiwi for example which revolution and taught alot of people how to attack. Treat me as someone who doesn't know anyone (which I don't really try to find them), and tell them to me so I can see if they are good teachers. Please keep in mind, I don't wish for 'Attack videos' or 'How to Lavaloon' these types of things. There are more than enough How to attack styles and enough videos of Gowipe for example, unless it's majority elements on teaching how to back-end loon.
To be honest, there are more than enough attack guides and strategies online teaching how to attack so I really don't want to make this sub-section. BUT, that being said, looking at DaRT's Surgical Hog video, as well as the new attack such as HeGiHo (Healer, Giant, Hog), that is pulling off success against Anti-3 star bases, dedicate a full sub-section to the attacks and breaking it down would be for the best.
Now I don't know if I should create a sub-section under [Curent Meta] for Discussions, or should I put it as sub-topics under different topics. For example, Lavaloon, a big game element in the world of Elite Attackers. I have also commented on how to build an anti-lavaloon base with another expert Elite which you can read [here].
Lavaloons fall under "Attack Strategies" which could then be explained how it works, which a sub-topic could be the [Discussion on Lavaloon]. But that being said, [Lavaloon] is also a big meta topic by itself so if I had a [Lavaloon] section with [Lavaloon Discussion] and [Lavaloon Attack Explained] would these subsections work? If for example, there was a well explained Lavaloon video, where there is, The Secret to Lavaloon Attack!, would video and description page of it fall under Discussion since you can talk about it, a dedicated Chief DaRT's page since it's his content, or the Lavaloon page since it's a super coverage of lavaloon?
I'm am for sure going to probably create a [Current Meta] Section in my website, but until I can iron out how can I dedicate a page for the Experts Corner, the discussions, and organizing everything, I don't want it to be messed up and everything linked in a spiral where you would have to follow a page to read the information. Alittle help would be appreciated :)
[How to use Clashcaller Effectively] Guide
I literally just thought of this up as an example when I was doing this blog post LOL, But I do feel like it is a good sub-topic to put under my "Clan Management," and help those that are confused on how to use clash caller effectively. For example, I've read somewhere, "How do you allow room for people to three star Attacks if another player has already called a base to attempt a 2 star attack? Also, do players get kicked for attacking wrong bases because we've also dealt with that issue there. Thanks!" In this question, it has 2 things which can be addressed. 1. How the Reservation System should work (should you be allowed to call 2 stars?), 2. A punishment system for those that don't follow the rules. In just this one question, I can create a "criteria in order to call a base" as well as a separate "Warning and Ban" System for which those that do not comply to clan rules can be punished appropriately. All of these is just a future content I am thinking about.
Thank you for reading and commenting, any suggestions or feedback is appreciated.
