First let me say that all of the screenshots are really nice face-smile.png

For the homepage I'd vote for 'Four Tribes 2'. Of the ones showing all four tribes it's the one I like most. Unfortunately Barbarian and Atlantean buildings are a bit underrepresented. But it looks more pleasant to me than the others.

If the voting is close one could consider changing the screenshot on the homepage on a regular (or random?) basis. Maybe once a week/month. Of course I don't know if that would be easy to implement by a script.

Some sites also have a JavaScript with a slideshow, it we want to go that route.

+1, a slideshow would be great face-smile.png
But why so rarely? How about changing it every ~10 seconds, so visitors get various impressions of the game while reading the text on the startsite

Personally i don't like such slideshows. Having a thing on the website which changes every 10 sec. will distract from reading, imho.

I am fine with exchanging it once a week or any other interval.

The new image is up. It would be nice to give it some sort of framing though.

I already thought of adding a css styled border

We don't have to fiddle with the image then.

He made a lot of them. Check out the Screenshots section - he made everything in the Build 20 category starting from Zoomed Out Nile
