Hey guys, I just wanted to talk to you guys about the current site as it stands and looking for improvements that could be made to the website over the next year. I've been in talks with Larry about some possible changes to the site and he is all for it if the members truly want it. Now I am going to suggest some ideas, but I would love to hear your guys' ideas in the comment section of this fanpost situation.
One of the main things I think we all talk about during game threads that I think we would all love to see is the creation of a music download section to indy cornrows. It would be great if we had access to hundreds of digital albums through the website for purchase. I personally love listening to music and think that I would become addicted to the music section of indy cornrows. It is really just a great way to get more members and give people a reason to come back to the site. I mean, if a member's entire digital library of albums and music singles is on the website, it really creates more traffic to the site.
Another thing that I would personally love to be included in the website is a virtual database of pictures involving the Pacers. This could include players (past and present), different fans, areas of interest to the team, you get the idea. It would be great to have all of these pictures in one collective database. If I want to search for all Pacer Players with red hair, I could search the database with those restrictions and wa-lah. It would take some work, but I think the virtual database of pictures, old and new, would be great for member free time use.
A third and final idea that I always see being talked about on fanposts is the idea of personal video pep messages. These would be short, 3-5 minute videos created by members that would include inspiring quotes or personal messages to the players. These videos could be sent directly to the players and pump them up for their game. Pep message videos could also be sent to the Banker's Life Jumbo-tron and be played before tipoff to pump up the fans. This really creates a lasting connection between members and the players and organization.
Again, these are only a few ideas I've seen or thought of for the website; if you have any of your own, please leave them in the comments.
