    NEW FORUM LOOK

    Post by Percy on Thu Feb 25, 2010 1:37 am

    Heroine and I decided to add a new look to the place, we are creating some new forums to break things up a little better, we will have a true crime forum with a subforum for our farmville case and another subforum for crimes in the news to discuss other interesting cases so please post them when you find them.


    We will have a general discussion area lounge for general chit chat and fun things.

    We will have a CURRENT EVENTS, POLITICS AND LAW forum.


    We will have an OCCULT, RELIGION AND SPIRITUALITY FORUM for those topics.


    We will have a CONSPIRACY THEORY forum for the tin foil hatters like myself.

    We will have an ARTS ENTERTAINMENT AND CULTURE forum.

    Finally we will have a SPORTS FORUM for anyone who enjoys talking sports.


    ENJOY and please thank HEROINE she did all the hard work.

    The forums and sub-forums are well-chosen. Was there still a separate forum for laughter/comedy or whatever? We'll still need that to separate out threads that are just telling a simple joke. (Did I say simple? I meant, um, short!)

    One thing about typography: Do you see how easy it is to read the Farmville sub-forum name in the list? That's because of the caps/lowercase. I'd turn at least one level of heading into caps/lc rather than all caps. All caps is hard on the eyes.

    Thanks for doing this, P and H. Things are shaping up nicely! -tap

    Wait. Now I think I see: you have forum names in all caps, subforums in caps/lc. I can see why that would seem perfectly workable; the problem is when there is no subforum. So, for example, look at the Latest Posts list, at how all the main forum names show up there, vs. how something like the Johnny Depp thread looks with its subforum title in caps/lc.

    Very tricky little situation.... typography always is. Maybe leave it for now and see if we start using sub-forums more....

    Do you wish I'd never brought this up? I know I do....

    oh, and, good morning! drink coffee

    Morning, maybe Heroine can work on that, I dont have access to admin so she would have to look at that, my role was simply bouncing ideas off her and she did all the work and did a nice job. I see what you mean though. Can be fixed easily I am sure.

    The categories are excellent and it's set up really nicely. I am just sorry there wasn't something about which I could post:

    WTF!?





    Oh, but I managed to anyway.

    Okay What is everyone seeing now? It seems as though everytime I change anything it goes back to the blue one. I'll see if I can figure out why. It also seems to like to layer rather than delete the previous one and add a new one.

    Heroine is having some trouble learning the ropes, everything you see that is problemetic at this point is temporary and will be fixed in time, we are both reading and trying to figure out what our color/graphics options are so you will see changes that may not be permanent, if you have any problems just post them here and we will definitely work on it and try and get everyone everything they want.

    Just wanted to chime in and let everyone know that I realize it appears I have posted an awful lot in each forum and that it may seem like I am trying to dominate the discussion, but please know that is not my intention nor is it the case. I have had this week off work and next week I return to work and wont have has much time to post so my agreement with Heroine was that she take the time to create some other forums for the place so that there is something for everyone and I would in turn do my part to try and post some interesting links in each forum to get things kick started so that the forums wouldnt be bare and people wouldnt shy away from them because of their bareness. So please feel free to post interesting stuff in all of the forums, I have done my part to get things kick started and now I will return to the real world and get back to making some money and doing what I do. I have enjoyed this week, getting to know you all and being able to experience what it is like to set up a forum.

    If you have any questions or concerns let Heroine or myself know and we will do our best to change things more to your liking or whatever needs to be done to make you comfortable and happy here.
