Odds'n'Ends
« on: January 14, 2008, 10:45:24 PM »

Well, thread descriptions are back, so there goes the first thing I was going to mention.

"Moderator" definitely needs to be changed to "Minister".

I'll post any other random design ideas I have here.  For now, I am tired; I am redesigning my own website and have hit a wall; I've reached that point where I am making stupid coding mistakes and know if I continue I will start doing considerable damage.  (And it's only 11:45.  Guess my sleep schedule's adjusted to my class schedule.  That was fast.)

I'm frustrated by my inability to think of a good way to slip MINISTAR references into this forum.

Having a punk of a time find those name values for the board index.

Anywho, I know worstforumsever.com is available and all, but... So is blackjack-n-hookers.com.

Just throwing that out there.

I keep seeing Worst Forum Sever. And I don't mind that a bit.

Actually, do we prefer worstforumsever or worstforumever?

I hope you didn't test those by trying to go there, else there's a fair chance they may already be taken.

Yeah, yeah. I read that article too. Wouldn't worry about it. I usually just do a whois check, anyway. I'm afflicted with a morbid curiosity about who might have already snapped something up whenever I look.

Kind of why I look forward to that addition to the City of Heroes site that'll let you look up characters by name. I can't help wanting to see if justice was done with "Die Laughing" or whatever other character concept I had in mind before finding out the name was taken.

The maximum avatar size is too small, so I will complain about that.

Actually yeah, I didn't put Leon avatar up because it looks like shit that small. I do like the Ainteartica flag enough to not care at this point, but it does bother me a little.

The avatar size limit actually pertains to the forum software, which in this version doesn't adjust the message area with every avatar. Notch down to 800x600 to see how avatars would be cutoff in higher resolutions if the 150x200 limit was off. If I find an adjustment for the index code, it'll go in.

orz.

As long as we have Ministries of Fucking Off and Showing Off, how about renaming the Ministry of Sex to the more accurate Ministry of Beating Off?  (Or Whacking.  Whichever.)

Sticking It to the Man could similarly be that of Slacking Off, Keeping It Real of Stepping Off, Criticism of Mouthing Off.

There should be page navigation links at the top of each thread page, for the benefit of those of us who routinely engage in reading threads from the latest post backward.  >:|

Welcome to Taking the Idea Overboard.

:wuv:

Now let's see just how long the 'Ministry of' part sticks around. A Trading Off board will come into play if enough topics warrant the inclusion.

Oh yeah, how are the post boxes? I modified the individual style sheets, but haven't goofed around with the main sheet yet.

They're working just fine for me so far, but I've only been using that steel blue (faded blue, not vivid) theme so far.  It's usable from the black theme.  :wuv:

(EDIT: Works with pink too.)

Ministry of Stardom.  Ministry of Stark Contrasts.  Ministry of Starsky and Hutch.  Throw me a frickin' bone, here!

Resizing controls now apart of the standard reply box.

Click on the + or - buttons directly underneath the post box to resize.
