Today we have begun rolling out a new design for the main CIC website. The previous design was over ten years old, and no longer fit the current direction and focus of the site. A few outdated and obsolete sections have been retired, and the leaner menu system reorganizes our content into four distinct sections:
Almost the whole staff pitched in with ideas or sketches, but most of the credit goes to ace, who was the only one with working knowledge of 21st century web technology. You may notice a missing section or a broken link somewhere. We'll probably get to it soon as we continue to tweak the layout, but you are welcome to point out bugs or oddities by commenting on this post, or by posting to the site feedback forum. If the site looks broken in IE9, you may want to check your compatibility settings. You can do this by disabling Compatibility mode entirely or by pressing Alt (to reveal Internet Explorer's main menu) and going to Tools > Compatibility View Settings and removing wcnews.com if it happens to be listed there.
- Under News, you'll find links to older archives, social media links and the latest poll.
- The Games section links to product background pages where you can find information, downloadable game documentation, patches and more on that particular title.
- Information on characters, ships and places can be found under Universe.
- Forums, #Wingnut and InfoBurst are a few of the sections you'll find under Community.
