So I have noticed a few things and I think the problem lies in when you click the TMunderground it goes straight to the movie site and studying how this is set up it clear the forum should be the forefront of the main site so instead of having people going to movie site, they would land at TMU home. Because if I m new user and all I see movie site then I think it just another video sharing site without a community, that's how new user would feel because they don't even know about the forums or the community. So I redesigned the site slightly to give it an easier approach

So you see you have easier access to sign up sheet and login sheet cause upfront and what the latest is going on, who the new users are and what the last post is which leads me to my next point is the forums in the latest news section has not been updated since 2017, so new people might think we have abandoned the site 2 years ago, so we need to fix it so it said 2019 stuff instead of 2017 stuff.

 

Now when people click on TMU site this should come up first not the movie site. Why you may ask that because this shows that we are creative creators and then they can check on the top and see or you can tell them that you can upload their creations to movie site for comments and feedback from the community. This way it will bring more traffic to your site without having sacrificed too much. But if it stands as if how will people know there a community here? when all they see is the movie site. The movie site should be second and TMU Home should the very first thing they see when they click this site this way you give a better first impression and who knows it might fix a lot of problems.

That and having a signup or login feature up on the top there helps new user sign up and makes it easier to understand. But I like to know your thoughts do you think this redesign is a good idea or should it stand as is? Let me know in the comments below.

I am a user of the Hispanic community, and that enters this forum very little, but the feeling is that the forum is abandoned, and it is true what you say, it is very difficult for me to find links that lead to this forum, so That few people will find it.

So I started thinking of how to make mobile users easier to find the site and navigate it as well so I came up with proof of concept for the design and would like to know your thoughts on it.

Now since phone uses scroll down feature I thought about making each section taps so if I click on TMU home the home page shows up but if I click on say the forums then the homepage close and the forum page opens and so on and I move the chat feature in the live section because most of the time that when we use it and move the more section up so people could easily access it.

 

The arrows represent which page would be opened in each tap but not all of them could be opened at once. So would you rather have it on the top, left or right for mobile, let me know in the comments below. 

 

The second thing I changed is the name of the MOvie site, as right now having the movie site just the movie site makes feel like another movie site or youtube site I do apologize for the redundancy of this sentence even though you came from the movies games, it does not represent a creators work on the site meaning I don't think of creators when I go movie site so I changed the name to Creators movies site so it reflects these are user creators making these movies and not another youtube site and reflects all of us as creators and what we can do with the software we have, This why I think renaming the movie site to creators movies site is a good idea because when new user comes it makes them think this not another youtube site but actual creators that help them out and make their dream movies come true.

 

The third thing I think we need was the email subscription is we need new user sign up and login sign right their on the right screen this way people can sign up real quick and they don't have to fiddle around figuring out how to find stuff. I will let you decide where you want to put the new sign up sheet, needs to be easy to find and upfront somewhere like sites that have 

 

Login/ signup 

 

something like that so people can easily join in.

 

I know it seems like I m changing the site but I not trying to actually change the site but make it easier for new people and addressing the problems that have plagued the site for some time and my hope with these changes if implemented would reach a whole new generation of people. 

 

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below what you think of changing movie site Creators movies, plus having the tab feature on the mobile to be able to click on each section and have easy access to each section in the comments below. And I hope this helps address some issues and we get this community growing again,

I m back everyone and today I thought I remake the forums to make it easier to navigate for new people while still staying true to the TMUderground theme which creating new movies so I designed this particular this way so if people come to the site then they should get a clear picture of what TMU is about. 

  So I swapped a few things around to keep a flow because TMU at the core is a community in which we create movies for others. So I tried to reflect that and you see I put login and sign up on the side of the TMU home moved the movie's site using the new name Creators Movies and the search bar at the end so people need to look up members or certain forum they can do so. The second you will see community members this helps people know this community willing to help others out on their creations.  

  Let me know your thoughts in the comments below and if you want ken to fix the site with these changes then YOU the COMMUNITY need to email, facebook, and skype him if you want TMU to continue, I can only do so much but now I call all of you to do something.. what will your choice be?

Here another redesign in the Movie site, I shorted some of the stuff we don't need and kept some, for example, I shorted the movies being watched in one column and have more new videos there then I moved the search bar so be easier to get to, second is I made forum section under community and members so people can find members, this makes it easier for people to find the forums and get involved. The second thing I did is I have a movie assets section in which you download directly from the site this way people are not scrambling to find assets for their software which it dived by the software itself like if I want iclone assets, I go to movie assets then click clone and gives me a list of assets. This should help easier access to getting people more involved with the movie-making process.

The third thing I changed is I moved the social media to the middle so people can see these social media platforms we can share with. And forth I took the categories and made it 2 different ways to look movies to watch, the first one is the tradition action, sci-fi, horror, comedy, etc,, based on genre but the second is based on movie software so say I wanted to see only muvizu movies then I click on muvizu movies and all muvizu movies would show up. 

  I got rid of the most viewed, channels, and albums since they did not seem the most important but I did live top-rated and playlist up there for those of who would like to make a playlist but I would love to hear your thoughts on the new Movie site design, good, bad, in the comments below. 

 

A side note first of I m trying to fix the problem the site first before we upload anything to and the reason behind it is because currently too little find this site and what has to offer second is to make it easier for new users and us to help them along that way if everything up front we get the revival going here because if the site is fixed and made easier for new people then Movies and other creators will start joining and the movie making process returns but until it is fixed I think we should hold off on upload movies until we can fix the major problems within the site navigation first then movies then once that fixed we start uploading movies again, at least then we won't have drought as much as we had before but that why I writing this post addressing these issues and why the site has not succeeded as of yet and hope this thread helps fixes most of the problems.

I decided to use this thread as a way to give a bump but also as a way to express what we can do. So at this point, TMU is a ghost town but there is a way to turn it around. What we need to do is find a successor for the next generation, where Ken had done a great job with the site it might be time to pass the torch to someone else, who is trusted in the community, knows the vision, and can help fix the site and up in thread are few ideas I came up with to help the site make it easier for new users and Id be glad to help if that what it needed. This depends whether ken would allow this or not but what we can do is have a poll where the community could vote who the best candidate is or ken can person thinks would be best. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
