Reordered BBS sections
« 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?
just cause you're buff, don't play tough, cause i'll reverse the Earth and turn your flesh back to dust.

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...

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 =).

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?)
