I need ideas and that’s why I’m asking you! What should everyone add to their site or just something interesting you would want on a site?

Every site should have a link list (which was more common before search engines became a big thing). Cool sites. Sites you visit often. Interesting webdesign. You make the categories.
That way, I share bookmarks between computers. And maybe someone else finds a hidden gem there too.
There are plenty of niche websites that you'll only find via link lists. Search engines don't really show every scrappy little website.

Ummm every website should have a MelonLand forum graphic :tongue:

Sooo the main things I tend to look at on a site- An About Page, I like to know what kinda person is making the site - An art/music etc page, I like to see the things that this person likes to create, even if its just doodles or css buttons - The links page, as Gans said, I like to see who this site links too and what other sites they are into - The home page, well its just useful having one!

After that you can kinda do what you like - Blogs and photo journals are always cool.. The thing is, its not really about what stuff your site has, its more about whether that stuff expresses who you are. A site should express and showcase your individuality; thats the most interesting thing to see, and it can be done in any way. So it can be useful having a few standard features; but you dont realy neeeeeed them if you can express yourself in other ways :grin:

everything lost will be recovered, when you drift into the arms of the undiscovered

Ooo, this is a good thread to stalk... and well... I'm a bit ashamed but I don't seem to have half of these things listed so far on my site yet :omg:k: I'll have to get around to adding them, as they're all good ideas. I do have a resources page but only for writing links, I want to add more sections. Especially soon I want to add buttons to other personal sites (like the sites you guys have on here) and maybe join a few webrings, that would be cool. I don't know if I have any extra suggestions besides that. Although, E-Shrines to things you love are really cool and another thing I want to implement on my own site.

i also think a links page is essential!! :grin: there are so many sites ive only found because of link pages, but in a similarish vein as that id also like to add graphics pages to here too!!! :omg:k: theres so many graphics and images ive only found because of pages like that, and (personally i think its) really fun to go and download old graphics, especially, from other neocities sites or archived sites! you never know what youre gonna find, i like downloading a ton of graphics to add when i dont feel up to working on my site itself, so its still technically working on the website if you realllly think about it :grin: ive also found sites with really good pages that list graphics or other resources tend to get linked a bunch since it helps people find them, so it can draw attention to your site!

I'm glad the links page is getting so much love.

My favourite part of old sites was usually the humour section. I especially liked reading fanfics where familiar characters all act like idiots, or short comic strips.
