My idea for layout...

Post  legolizard on Tue Nov 01, 2011 7:16 pm

So I had this idea for a new forum layout-type thing and this is what I came up with. Note that this is just an idea and it was made in MS Paint so...



Anyway here is my idea...

While I love it, I want to see what other people think!

I think it's a good layout. Should maybe remove the ticker because that will increase loading speeds. Make the buttons text because I can't remember what image is what and I hate waiting for tool tips. And make a smaller logo too because it completely dominates the header, I know that's it's point but it should be a bit smaller.

I think a makover would do good especially with the color scheme and buttons, everything looks "meh" and is dis-proportionate (buttons and crammed in, lot's of random unused emotes like "monkey" that are just tools for spam etc.)

Speaking of emotes, definately cut down on them. We need less emotes for sure, and also less animated emotes. Perhaps one banana, the alice emotes, and a few of the typical animated emotes like:
Very Happy Smile Sad Shocked Rolling Eyes Wink Neutral and another thing, get a new laughing emote. Like the one on this forum: www.mmorpgmaker.org. This one looks nothing like a laugh: Laughing

Yes most definately.

Meh, if you can't wait 2 seconds for tool tips then you have a patience issue, and the pictures are pretty common sense, but then again common sense is not all that commen. : P

Yes, just a bit, but definately cut it down. : )

LAWL!


So anyway David, could you change the layout in the forums? If you can't do it to the degree that my idea is then could you give me like an outline of what is feasible? : )

Okay Dion...let me ask you this: How exactly did you make that design? I was about to head over there and make a thread about it, but you started it here, so let us see what you have to say...

How did I make the design? The basic components were imagination and javascript. Wink

Do a little reading about AJAX. That's the core concept behind my homepage...or any homepage of a similar design.

(What happened to our online/offline indicators?)

I'm not a fan of the way that version of the design was implemented. I prefer something where the subforums are bigger and there's less space. Everything is largly focused on the forum so it still looks farmiliar and like PHPBB more. Changing the layout entirely will only cause confusing I think.

Okay...but that doesn't really answer my question...

As for the online/offline indicators, I am dealing with a small issue with them that I expect will be resolved shortly...

Nonetheless, we should be working on more users, not different layout. I read just has much posts as I do PMs.... :\

Suggesting rejected, for now: while I know that this is possible, I don't know how to do it, and I can't find someone willing to do it for me.

Moved to Completed Requests.
