Nice Suggestions

Here are a few

Have the navigation links in a pop up, stay on top window for easier access..

Reduce the size of avatars on the front page so they take up less space

have a maximum display size for images posted so they dont turn out huge and dont display within the viewable area

Make the smiley window so that it just displays the minimum number and you have to click the 'show all' link to see the rest . The way they are now you have to scroll to get to the submit buttons.... and the quote text thing is out of view...

all minor points... but it would make things function the way I'd like them to :D

All reasonable.

All would probably be done already if there were admin functions to do any of them.

:D

They sounded good to me too. But I didn't know if they were possible.

:wha':

The smiley one should be possible via admin functions as the 'show all' link is already there.... then all shouldnt be showing now.. or is that too logical?? I know things rarely work as they should...

the rest probably need some adjustment to the board templates....

I took them out of the vb skin... it's not hard to take out but it's not much point in doing so if the front page is going to be redesigned real soon...

Umma, I don't know about the navigation links in the pop-up, but I know all the other suggestions you made are changable in our admin panel. Avatars can be reduced in size, images can have a max display in the forums with an option (if the image is larger) to 'click to enlarge', and the max display of smileys is also an option (ie: display max '10' and click 'show all' to see the rest in a pop-up window).

I guess I just can't find where to affect the smilies.

Aye.

Can't find any of those options.

BF is super duper admin though... he has extra buttons ;)

Then he'd better pull them out. :D

Images now load as thumbnails. All are clickable for the full image, which may break the table. They'll only break the table if you click them though.

I know what he means about changing avatar sizes, but that's not really needed as he said, if we're changing the front page.

Can't find the smilie limits.

yay..... thumbnails will load much faster for slow pokes like me ...

Thanks

how would clicking on it break the table if posting the original massive image didnt??

it's really only the avatars on the front page that are too big... they seem to take up more space there than necessary...

I'm sure you'll find the smiley thing given time..... there's no rush :D

I meant if the original picture broke the table, they still will if you press the thumbnail. I just tried it and know what you mean now. They load on a seprate page.

Again, I doubt we'll change the avatars. If method can go through the skin and remove them, then groovey. If not, it shouldn't be an issue for that much longer anyway.

THANK YOU, guys...everything loads much faster now.

we need a crying or sad'er than  :(    smillie

y'mean like this? the designer, being a copyleft type o' dude, made them free for the taking (like the puking smiley and The Finger i posted in other places here). i wish you could see the others he made for us. (white skull, white ghostface, red devilface, one whose expression is saying 'bastards!', a :doh!: (homer) a :mmmm: (marge), a :sorr-rrreee:, a :proud:, a :ripped: (out-of-your-face w/wiggly smile & Xs for eyes) a :fried: & others.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
