PostSubject: NEW THEME WEBSITE WISHLIST   Sat Jul 16 2011, 13:19

So, let's roll up our sleeves and help DiD come up with some ideas for a site layout. How about we start with a wish list of what we think may be good improvements to what's already been done before ala NDSthemes.

-Carousel for themes is a must IMHO but maybe more snazier like when you scroll on your phone almost fluid like feel to the scrolling. (the fluid thing isn't a must just a suggestion LOL)

-Latest user activities was cool but we don't really need to know which theme somebody downloaded.

-Theme awards was a hit on the site so let's keep it.

-Tags that actually work when included in a theme. We can give the color scheme the boot as it doesn't work 70% of the time.

-Random theme displayed each logon. Everybody thought it was a great idea but SURPRISE no one (ACHEM!!! NDSthemes) did anything about it.

-Admin awards...i'm gonna steal those stamps and remake them. (JOKE JOKE...well maybe not kidding hehehehe)

-Downloads that keep the native format for each kart...for example: AK2 downloads should have the calender already zipped in without having the NOOB make a calendar file. (just saying what everyone was thinking right?)

-Cool emoticons and other neat FORUM gadgets and such.

-A rank system that doesn't require 1000 themes or 10 years of your life to max out. LOL.

-Let's make some money off the site? Well why not? If a couple of thousand people generate unique hits to the site what's wrong with some residual pocket change? It's how a site pays for itself and how the new site can grow (Shrugs). If it generates enough income HELL...the admins can actually get some paychecks to boot...how's that for incentive.

ummm. ok I'll go hide in the corner now. hahahhahahaha

Gabby also wants the Meet the Artist section to return in the forums. Sad If we have more admins, we could make it monthly instead of every 3 months.

By the way, cool ideas revo Very Happy

OMG The first demands already!
Just kidding. It feels really good that you all are thinking with me. It'll be a great admin team. I don't have a doubt about that.

Nice round up Revo. That'll give me some sleepless nights. LOL

When getting to these things, I'll tell everybody and you can test, comment them.

Again, back to work... I'm curious how far I'll get this evening.

Cool! Is the default size 10kb?

Oh, DiD was wondering if the site was going to be able to use flash for the logos etc...? Had some crazy ideas for a logo.

I've kept the avatar dimensions (60x60 pixels) but increased the filesize. You can now upload an avatar up to 20Kb.

Flash isn't a problem. I'm going to use it myself for the uploading part of the site. Smile

What I've completed today:

  • Login system finished. The site uses the registration and login system of the forum. Why recode something if it's there already. Razz
  • Added some containers so I can position other elements already. Like the theme search container below the login and the sponsor container below the menu.
  • Added the Guests - Members container that will be displayed at the bottom of the page. I'm going to put this in the forum also, replacing the current one that only displays text.
  • Already done some css changes (colors and appearance ) to the forum. More needs to be done.


Don't be afraid to give your comments, suggestions, etc...

Hi DiD,

love the look of the new site. Can't wait to use it. I tried to register, but it wouldn't let me, constantly said that I can't sign in, I needed to register, then when I pressed register, I filled in the form again, and the same message appeared again. Can't register to save my life. Lol. Is there a way you could have a look what's going on? Thanks.

Hey Weenie.
Try again please. I've found what went wrong and fixed it.

What's done today:
  • Fixed a huge bug that prevented forms to work correctly. That was Weenie's problem.
  • Registration needs to be confirmed by mail now. That's one countermeasure against forum spamming bots. I better be prepared for it.
  • Implemented the menu system.
  • Users - Guests online in the forum is replaced by the one used on the home page.
  • Made some first changes to the forum lay-out.
  • Added a first (non paying) sponsor. HehHeh.

Whoa, Really? DiD, I'm truly honored (and feeling bad that I can't actually help with payment). Thank you very much! You're the best!

The mail is automaticly send Weenie. That's probably the reason why it ended up in the junk folder. Anybody an idea how to prevent this?

When we are ready for it, I've got no problem with submitting themes you've already made. Any other opinions?

Revo ! Is the scroller in any way close to the thing you had in mind? The themes are shown in it in full size (256x384 pixels). Should I make them smaller?

And about the first sponsor. Gabby well deserves it for the fact of bringing us over here.

Thank you DiD, I'll upload some of my old themes once we are up and running. Very Happy

I took the email out of the spam folder and told it, it's not spam, I think every time I sign on on a website it says that after the email is sent. So there can't be any other way of doing it? Can there?

Thanks again DiD, I'm looking forward to the new site very much Very Happy

Hi Gang, I believe that the settings for SPAM or unwanted email is under your personal email preferences. Just change the settings on your email client to prevent that from happening in the future Weenie Smile

Hi DiD, the front page looks great! The full size images for the themes look fantastic. If you were to decide to shrink the images I would recommend only doing it if you were going to change the overall preview size to include the 92 pixel gap that we all keep in mind when we theme. 256x 476 may be too large for a preview but if it were shrunk to only 80% it may look pretty good.

The scroll feature is very smooth Sir! Smile Do you think we should increase the amount of new themes from ten to twenty on the scroller? Oh, I also found this link about scroll features I don't know if it's of any help to your project: http://www.flashxml.net/image-scroller.html

It's very inspiring to see the amount of work that you have done in such a short amount of time. Very Happy

The flash scroller is very nice and smooth. But if we want animated previews we have to stick to the one currently used. That's a pure html scroller who can support animated images.

But, can't we have like, static preview on the main page (on the spinner) and animated previews on the theme page? (just a small idea)

Lol, I have a vague idea what you are talking about. I'd say go for what is easiest now, and then later we can always change it to something more complicated. Or can we?

Yes, possible. Would require more uploads by the creator and more space on the server.

Yes, as for now I think we better stick on the current method. Afterwards, when getting a definitive URL and payed server space (better performance and speed) we can always switch to a new method.

NEEDED for the new site!
For those who are willing to help. Do a meeting together or do it separately and get in action over the following:
- I've added a user ranking to the database. This field contains euh... C-Points (Just a name, you can propose your own name too.)
- Based on these points we can define what user ranking a member has. Later on we can do other stuff with it to.
- Define possible actions that ADD or DISTRACT C-points, like add(+50)/delete(-50) a theme etc...
- Define the levels of C-points when a member climbs up on the user ranking.
- And make a set of images that show the current user rank of a member. Each rank should be 60x18 pixels. Animated or static.


All help is greatly appreciated!

Oh and on the site I've implemented the user ranking under the avatar in the forum. Just a temporary one. We all have 100 C-points right now. Very Happy
