Just looking for some feedback on our new site here.

Found any bugs?

Any ideas for new features?

Want to rant on about something completely off-topic? ;)

Suggestion:
Get a few graphical contrasts between posts, interposts and backgrounds. It would make it all a tad bit more clear. I'm having a bit of struggle identifying everything.

Overal Feedback
Looks great o0, nice and simple, needs some work on overal visability and layout maybe.

I really respect all this work youre putting in this community site :)

The only thing i can comment on atm is that the videobox on the home page looks a bit cropped in the layout.

EDIT: THERE IS NO DRUID FORUM :evil:

Hi Turiel,

I saw your post in the Shadowsong official forums and just wanted to stop by and pay my compliments to you on the site, it looks absolutely fantastic. I used to play WoW with you until I quit but I am thinking of making a comeback. Not sure if it will be on Shadowsong as it is a little quiet but I may roll an alt on there just to hook up with some old friends.

Once again fantastic site, if you need any help with it at all just give me a shout mate.

Take Care Turiel,

Someone You Know

www.theancientones.org comes up as a "404 Not Found" for me (In the Guild Links section) not sure if the page is just down or if the link is wrong.

There's now a druid forum for all you whiny druids ;)

www.theancientones.org is the right website but they seem to be having problems with it at the moment.

Thanks for the nice comments, and "Someone you know"... im intruiged :)

Edit: Argh, changed from .com to .org - www.theancientones.org is the right one

Felwen

That's the problem then mate, you have the link in the "Guild Links" Section as www.theancientones.org instead of .com

Tarun, you can comment on screenshots and albums, just make sure you're logged in and select "Add comment" from the left hand side menu.

Well I find it bad that I do not have any mod rights so I can change messages in perverted stuff.

Turiel

No subSilver is not working at the moment. Maybe the board administrator (/poke Khaine) can work with the graphics dude (/poke Ganya) to make other styles available :)

Turiel,

I am trying to submit a video to the site but keep getting the error message "File Not Specified". As far as I can see I am doing everything correctly, are we allowed to submit videos?

Some thoughts on site

1) Any chance i can have an option of non-fixed size design ? Im using 1280X1024 and currents design leaves about 30% of my screen blank.

2) Would be nice to have a "quick post" option on forum - i.e. a hidden form that allows posting w/out loading post page

3) Its really cool you automatically fill race, class, level and guild upon registration. I guess it is done using warcraftrealms.com info ?

Turiel
18-08-2005, 12:22 PM
TheFallen - I'll look into fixing that so only registered users can vote, and only once.

Soulshift - w3 pwn j00

Someoneyouknow - What is the file extension? How big is the file?

Drauk -
1) Not right at the moment, yeah my screen is the same. We've barely gotten this design working, too soon to worry about new ones :P
2) Yes quick post is definitely something I'll be adding shortly.
3) Yes

Felwen
18-08-2005, 12:24 PM
The file extension is .wmv and it is 8.37mb.

Turiel
18-08-2005, 12:33 PM
Ok Someoneyouknow, try now.

there's no "jump to last post in thread" button in the "view posts since last visit" list.
(the small arrow you get when you're looking at the normal sub-forum list)

if you are talking about you'r opinion, that you're opinion is always right, then, indead, you are always right. But, if you mean that you're opinion is right in anyway, and that it also counts for the opinion for other peoples, then you're not always right :]

yes phylosophycal (sp?), gotta love it :lol:

Darker skin.
Horde and Alliance skins.

Quick Reply hack.

yeah that would be nice... like a horde skin and an Alliance skin ;) one red and one blue with nice "custom" borders and stuff

oh and that House with the text Our Community up in the left corner would be nice if it had a WoW look to it... like an Orc hut for the Horde and an NE house for the Alliance (or whatever)

anyway this site is great thanks for all the hard work guy 'n gals(?)

Edit : forgot.. but it would be nice with a Proffesion forum for all you skill 300 people out there ;)

Edit 2 : My god im blind as an OLD bat! we already have it ;)

Suddenly i lost info on my class, level and guild in my profile. Could you please fix this ?

Turiel
13-09-2005, 11:35 AM
It's because you changed guild, and your new guild wasn't in our database. If your guild does not appear on the Guild listing page, your level info etc will not show in the forums. I've added the Netherwind guild now.

didnt read all yet, so dunno if it's already suggested :

with the personal gallery's : filter out the empty ones ... now way too much pages with barely something on.

ps: a 'recent added pics' link would be nice also :)

Front page seems to be showing posts from forums you don't have access to in the latest topics thingy.
