the new site is coming along nicely, i've run into a kink when trying to comment in a journal entry, but i guess it's to be expected.

Depending on the backend design for the site, it shouldn't be difficult to implement at all. Oh, please make sure one of the options is to disable paging all together. Wink

No, it wouldn't be difficult to implement. However paging isn't really for slow connections, it's meant to keep strain off of the SQL server. If a thread gets a ton of posts and a bunch of people try and access it at the same time, then it will be slow across the board- independent of connection speed. Also, news content and rest of the site would suffer as I'm sure they use the same SQL server.

That's because they used PNG files. PNGs are awesome but on some of the legacy browsers(IE 6 and below), they aren't properly alpha-blended without some sort of correction script. And on the even older browsers, they aren't able to be properly rendered.

Do yourself a favor and upgrade Very Happy

Golly, Poster


Big surprise. I like it. I guess the gallery could take more pictures though.

What about a flash introduction to the site? Something fancy to catch people's attention.

Another issue: can I use certain elements of this new layout for the fansite I'm building at www.eisley-italia.tk?

Many or most users probably wouldn't reconfigure their profile anyway so the entire userbase wouldn't be requesting entire threads; only those that specifically request it. Depending on the average and maximum number of users on the site at any given moment the server should be able to handle it. For example, according to the index there are currently 38 users online, only 12 (+2 hidden) of which are registered meaning only 12 (or 14 Question)of which would even have the option of disabling paging. Very Happy

Using IE 6? The navigation images are PNG format with transparency, which IE doesn't natively support. There's a javascript that should fix this, but I have noticed for some reason it doesn't always work. All current browsers (including IE7) should render PNGs correctly, but I'm not saying you have to upgrade, heh. We will make a fix for this since IE6 is (sadly) still a widely used browser.

Thanks for all the other suggestions and feedback. Paging is not going to be disabled, sorry.

Is there a problem posting comments on the journals or news items (did anyone notice you can comment on news? Laughing) I kind of expected to see some comments there by now.

When the forum gets redone can our signature's pixel size get upped a little? Like, 500x150px instead of 500x120px?

That's the last time I give feedback. Wink Kidding. I'm sure I'm have more complaints as I frequent the forums more. Evil or Very Mad

Now that's a silly suggestion. Laughing

Your browser must be on crack? It's there... what are you getting?

Yeah. Personally, I'd like more than 15KB for the avatar... but, I'll take what I can get.
