Forum direct link from the main page

Hi there,

I think you should have a direct link to the forum from the main page. "Contact" often means "send an email", and a lot of people don't do that. You have a Indigogo running, and it may be a good time to build a stronger community. Easy access to dedicated forum is one more step.

There is actually a small hidden button on the bottom right which links to the forum :D

But I agree, a more visible button would be neat.

Good and practical point. Couple of people brought it up already. I would like to avoid having the top menu too large though. I was thinking of adding the Community tab and moving most of the links from the Contact page over there. What do you think ?

The easiest way i guess is to simply rename Contact to Community, and make the link to the forum more big or something.

I agree you don't want the navigation to become over encumbered, but I think, as stated above, that a 'Community' link in the top level navigation is critical to maintaining the community especially because the forums, wiki, ect are not hosted on the factorio.com domain.
