About the site changes

#1  Postby LIFE » Oct 28, 2010 3:11 pm

Turns out I'm not having enough time to give a complete website relaunch the attention it needs.
So what I'm going to do instead is improving the site with a gradual, incremental approach.

Of couse there will be a new logo (soon :naughty2:), of course there will be new areas such as for the article repository but instead of a complete switch that'll probably just confuse everybody I'll make some changes here and there that'll eventually lead to the idea we initially had in our heads.

I can arrange my available free time better this way and it'll also reduce the amount of time needed for bug-fixing and overall testing.

Hope that is fine with you too :dopey:

Cheers :cheers:

Do it however you like mate, it'll be great whatever approach is taken just so long as you sack all these winging moderators.

Could one of the little incremental changes be to reduce the height of the banner ? div.logo-image is 274px. That's 45% of a typical Netbook 1024x600 display and 35% of my laptop.

No, it's not good enough.

I think you should resign as admin, we can replace you with a bloke who has just left the RDF site, he did a fantastic job there.

LIFE is also the owner so the court submission where he sues himself should make interesting reading.
