xx Board updates
« Thread started on: May 6th, 2006, 11:15pm »

Yo.
I made some changes to the boards tonight, mostly cosmetic:
> combined the "sports" and "music" boards into "Off Topic" (these had only 12 total threads)
> configured to allow guests to view any threads, etc. so that (hopefully) we'll have less of those people who sign up but never post.
> changed to a variant logo (and centered it), added texture for background.

I'm down with two out of three changes, but why deleted the Music and Sports threads? Sure, they weren't big but they're still different categories, right? I'd say it's good for clearity to have those subtopics.
As a parallel of sorts, you cannot places Post-Crisis and Elseworlds somewhere else, eventhough they also have a relative small amount of topics?

Not that I'm devastated or anything but it's just not the way I would've done it.

This is a comics site - Elseworlds, etc. are comics topics. Sports and Music are off topic cool

But why leave the seperate board for movies if you don't have any other sub-boards to off topic?

It's all cool with me (and, of course, the topics aren't really important or anything) but, in my opinion, clearity and ease of finding topics is enhanced with the Music and Sports subtopics. (Which does not mean I endorse making more subtopics or going into the extreme that we need subtopics for everything.)

But yeah, whatevahh, it's not like I mind or anything cheesy.

If we start getting more traffic and more posting, I may pull them back out. As right now, I didn't see a reason to have a sports forum with 6 threads. Well over 99% of those posts were in one thread.
Movies (at the moment) seem to have more discussion, so I'll leave them for now.

Yo,

I have to say I'm not impressed with this new colour scheme for the boards. There's no distinction between posts and it's almost a bit too much 'Squad coloured' with the black, greyish and blue.
Main thing: individual posts should be more clearly seperated.

Yeah, I noticed that. Now, I just have to figure out what bit of code to alter...

Update time, I guess! This lay-out needs some getting used to, but I will dig it, of course. Eventually.

Yeah, the board matches the new site now. Smileys work now. This weekend, I'm going to change the board's canned avatars (for those of you who don't have your own) to characters.
Let me know if you run into any problems.

I really don't know. Try it and see. I haven't found where I can control that.
