Better Search Engine results and a site to add

Well, being the (wannabe) webdeveloper I am, I have noticed a problem with your first page when I type in www.tpu.org... too many words, you will get a better hit count from search engines if you make the first page to the site sort of like a magazine cover, and have the search engines look through the Meta Tags for their info.

Also a site to add to your list of sites: http://www.gamedeveloper.net It is a site devoted to indy game developers whereas gamedev.net is more aimed at the commercial developer. Game Developer, has a small community of support, so that means you will not see twenty posts asking how to make the next Half-Life in five minutes (well, maybe one... but only if the people are feeling humourous).

You can follow the link on the front page to suggest this and any other links! :-O

I could have sworn I read something about using the suggestion forum...

Oh well, I blame it on Sleep Deprevation.

Maybe someone should Suggest a layout that makes it easier to see such links ;-) The site is really supposed to be community run, and the front page has ways to modify/submit your own items to all of the things displayed. Suggestions is for meta-suggestions involving the organization or the underlying software of the site.
