I was told by my wife last night that she didn't like the was GS looked anymore.  She said it was too confusing.  I'm looking into a way to strip the portal away, replace it or just scale it back a bit.  I want honest opinions here people.  What the fuck do you want?

I liked it before all this portal stuff. They way we had everything set up after the big move settled down was nice.

But whatever, I'm just a big whiney emo fag.

I say no portal.  Just dive into the forums, like we had on the old old page.  

However, I love the "new posts" with the little "*" shit.  Want to keep that, and all the side block stuff.

So just replace the portal with the regular forum thing:

That way, it's obviously forums and the random guest can go pluck around...

Pluck!  PLUCK!  What the hell kind of website is this anyway?  What's the point, the grand scheme, the raison d'ĂȘtre?

KER BLAM!

Very spacious all of a sudden. You could probably make it fixed width (700px or something) to keep it tight.

Now all you need is to have the thread automatically update when someone posts so that I don't have to keep pressing REFRESH!!!
Title: Portal Page
Post by: Tyson on July 20, 2005, 03:15:36 PM
That would involve nastyness. Essentially, that's not possible without resorting to a Java applet or a "every 5 minutes" reload.

Just refresh, dumbtard.

Sometimes you fuckers post faster than my computer can refresh.  And don't tell me I need a new computer, 'cause duh.

You don't have to catch every post of ours the second it goes up, you know.

Oh, you need a new computer.

Sometimes, as an interesting thread unravels, I get left behind.  But it is not a big deal.  I just like catching all your banter, it's very gym locker room meets dead poet's society.

Still keeping sideblock stuff?  Latest posts and board menu and who's online?  Or is all that wired into the portal and/or stupid?

all that shit on the sides is portal stuff.  I can find a stripped down thing to take up like one side only with the junk in it.

Man, that portal was great.  Can we go all portal and no forums?

Just saying I liked the side block shit.  But, no big need.  Can we get the "new posts" shit in the top menu as well?

Must be a work computer issue.  Not surprised.

What would people think if all the bottom shit were on top?  The "you last visited" bar and the "who is online" bar?

There, that'll do for now.  I'll fix it up right later.

I've got that old-school getting logged out all the time problem now.  Especially if using the options on the bottom menu, such as new posts.

edit: Oh, and I like it now.  Left side blocks and forums proper.  RSS works for everyone but me, so that's good too.

Used to be the way I came to the forums, now has alarming shit saying everything's down.  Just redirect to main page...

Not yet. Firefox on Windoze and Safari on MacOS X.

Then again, this retarded Windows box crashes too often for me to notice if I'm getting logged out.

Looks like the logout problem is IE-specific.  Or, cruelly, Nacho-specific.

So, uh, I don't know.  I guess everything's beautiful then, right?
