Updating the AGS homepage?

Hello! Would it be possible to make some small* updates to the AGS homepage? Should we?

This hasn't been updated since 2014.


Thoughts?


*maybe, I don't know.

I suggested listing the MAGSAN issues under news. As for the picture, what's wrong with it?

And multiple people (including me) supported that suggestion in the MAGSAN thread, but I guess it went largely unnoticed. As for the picture, I don't really mind if it stays or is replaced.
How often do people actually visit the front page? I have the forums bookmarked and don't really pay that much attention to other pages.

Well, it is the first thing a new person sees.

And it's often the page that people will bookmark, if they haven't joined the forum yet.
It really does need updating. (nod)

I would also suggest an update on the AGS blog.
I should have listened to my mother---I should have practised.

Also, it should probably be responsive for mobile devices.
