Title: Reordered BBS sections
Post by: Walter on May 05, 2003, 09:04:35 PM
Ive been playing with new ordering for the BBS.  This current setup makes much more sense than the last but I'm sure it'll take some getting used to.

Comments/suggestions?

hey wally

why dont you just put the 10 most recent posts at the bottom?

just trying to be different? or trying to speed up loading times?

General boards being at bottom makes me read berserk boards first, and reading Generals seems boring ; before it was read shit first so you can read interesting stuff for the 'final'.
Definitely a good thing you made.

Can't, it makes the server parse thousands of posts at once every time the board loads. The current way gives the same results (fast lookup time) with no server yield.

Personally, I think it's a lot better! Good job fella. Ever thought of chaging the banner at the top though? Change is always a good thing ;)

Hmmm yeah, good idea. I just had a cool idea for it. I'll see what I can come up with by the end of the week.

If anyone else wants to give it a try though, make a banner that's 400x65 pixels, fits the current color scheme and lists the name of the BBS somewhere on it.  Let's all get crackin,

:)  what would be kick ass if we had one of those shockwave banners with the ripple effect, im thinking someone with adobe could put godhand in the second layer and Guts and griffith in the first on opposite sides of each other and in back of griffith include a 3rd layer of femto, and in back of Guts include his young picture kinda faded out.. that soundsl ike a good idea for me maybe a starting point or a insperation block for some young artist to pump the berserk
banner up.

Pure coincidence. I based the current color scheme off of how I envisioned Griffith Reborn. Plus, my colors are just plain prettier than the bland YaBB SE board's.

...rIgHt... you aren't fooling anyone, walter...  

Go ahead and tell them that.  The only things you added to the basic color scheme are the Puck background and the Skullknight.net pic.
Now as features go, well... I don't know the default ones...
Title: Re:Reordered BBS sections
Post by: krebs4life on May 13, 2003, 11:51:06 PM
yeah red and black do suck

but christ man, the baby blue on white reminds me of a hospital or a mental institution.

you can keep blue and white, but you could just add some trim color

maybe a gold color, i always thought there was gold on one of the BoH flags, but thats hard to tell considering the manga is in B&W

*Shrugs shoulders* You're hell bent on labeling me a ripoff artist. I'd get Griffith to vouch for me, since he helped me with picking these final colors for this scheme, but I don't guess you'd take another admin's word over mine anyway.

The original design that eventually turned into what you see was Blue/White/Gold. However, it was really hard to work gold into it. I'll see if I can find some screen shots of how it looked. It was pretty gross =).

Post by: krebs4life on May 14, 2003, 02:55:52 AM
yeah i can imagine, but it was just an example

with all the talent here (not mine), i imagine that you could come up with a pimpin good design to go with the pimpin good info

im not saying you need mad flash things or shit like that, but im sure someone could come up with something cool

(have you ever tried a black background with white text?)

were not saying that the site has to be complicated or overly involved

but you should at least customize it to your liking, kinda like your own signature.

and even if you dont want to customize it, change is a good thing every once and a while

but you are 'the man' here, and you will do as you please, but dont be totally deaf to what were saying

edit:  i thought of some more of my arguement

the things that i like about this board are the custom titles and the like. the 'Pub o Hague' bbs title, the custom interesting board titles. nothing on this board is really blah, it all suits sk.net bbs perfectally. i just think that you could integrate the site design to better suit the overall feel

and wally these are just suggestions, i dont want you to take these the wrong way like were trying to undermine your opinions and the like

Pay more attention to the flashing news at the top of the BBS. There's a link to the 10 most recent posts.

Should I rename this topic "IGNORAMA 2003!" ?

Cool idea, but it's a little too ambitious since I don't know enough php to do a reworking of the code. Sorry dude.

As far as features go on the board, WYSIWYG. I can do basic image swapping, color changing and board mod implementation (php modded by other people) but I can't make my own.

And thats cool walter.  such a thing definitely would NOT be worth learning php

i think these are great, but my only problem is my eyes are drawn to the dark portions of Griffiths hair, which i feel takes away the focus from the more important parts.  Maybe toning the dark parts of the hair done will help draw the focus to the important parts of the pic.  Also i don't feel the blue used on griffith matches the blue the feather is on.  Other than that its a great peice of work.
Title: Re:Reordered BBS sections
Post by: Uriel on June 01, 2003, 08:17:18 PM
The dark bits were on the orginal. And the blue on Griffith is meant to contrast the background blue. Gives it a bit more dimension than being the same shade of blue throughout.
