Remember dude... you a programmer first and a statesman second. It's not like anyone is going to bail on this site cause they think the colors are ugly. Until someone else steps to the plate and offers to do user interface design for you, it's your site.

What makes you think you're living up to expectations? [:D] Shoulda been a smile there. Makes a big difference in this case!

Real hate? With passion? Not just the plain run of the mill hate? Cool...Now you're talking. [}:D]

I never do graphic buttons until I have lived with the interface for a few days. Text links with generic icons to their left in a table should be fine for everyone until the opinion dust settles. I actually like the OD. I am finding that I am very used to the old button placement and it takes me a sec to find the new link. Never underestimate a user's muscular memory when you change a user interface. I think a lot of these guys still are in 800x600 and we are looking at the world through 1024x768. I have not looked at the UI design in 800x600 since you changed it over but I bet it is a factor in some of the neg. comments.

Yea, uh, I spent $60 and I still can't find the porn section. Can you work on that too?

Hey Goat. How come you don't like MY new color scheme and design? [img]web-comm.com/ar15/goat69.jpg[/img] At least I know you like my Sig Pic ! [;)]

I have a microscopic clue about coding a board like this - I’ve set up a couple of UBB based boards using MySQL backends. ---------------------- All I have to say is, I’m damned impressed with this board. It’s fast and stable and not finicky about platform. (I’ve used OPERA, IE, NUTSCRAPE, and Lynx) … It’s better than anything else I’ve seen. Keep up the good work man – Some of us appreciate you. Side note: What is this thing running on? (Hardware, OS, DB)

Hell GB, look at the bright side. Not one of our color blind members have griped at all! [;)]

Wow ! You have nailed it right on the head! Even though I am a total kissass, I must say that the Goat has done an AMAZING job. He coded this site from scratch and it is one of the best message forum apps that I have ever seen ! (alot of my clients host UBB and other message forum sites with us. NONE of them compare to the sitework that Juan has created here) Now. Do I get a raise? [:D]

I looked at mySQL for all the same reasons for a while. I really got interested when SAP made their underlying database engine open source. [url]http://www.sapdb.org/[/url] It's probably everything that you want it to be and it is still open source.

As for the NUDIE section... a more open and accepting ...... I like it already.

J/k, Goat...but you already knew that.[:)] "Nudie Section": bad idea. No j/k there.

Regardless of color and style and all of that, I still think this is one of the best sites that I've seen on the web. Keep up the good work.

It's not going to happen. GoatBoy will not respond to the emails sent to him from LotBoy. The only ones allowed back after being banned are the popular members.
Link Posted: 12/18/2001 6:19:27 PM EDT
GoatBoy.... I finally played with it on my iPAQ last night .... The site does not scale at all on it .. so it makes it terrible to work with ... No I am not griping just letting you know... If you ever had a chance to see .... you would know what I mean ... Paypal scales but the font scales and almost disappears.... Subguns.com scales and keeps the font .. but then again it is just a text based board... Yahoo allows frames to be selected whish helps .. but it still does not realyl scale ... so it is not just here.... Thanks for what you do do ... and if I ever get to where I am ahead I will sign up for the elite actual paying member... Ted...

We can't stand you either GB![;)] I liked the old design, color wise. I not really fond of the green, and now it is white around the posts(but not at the top). Looks weird.
Link Posted: 12/18/2001 8:16:31 PM EDT
Change is good. I like the new look and feel.
Link Posted: 12/18/2001 9:01:09 PM EDT
Goatboy, you go the extra mile for us around here. Lesser people would let their ego drive them, but not you. You are a man of the people. You hear their call, and like a true leader you listen. Now quit screwing around posting silly ass messages and get the damn colors back to the way they were![shock]

Thanks for the link. I'll check it out when I get some time but at first blush it looks pretty cool.

The content is more important to me than the view. Unfortunately, the "crash Netscape every five screens" bug is back with the new appearance. I don't know how you do it. [=:D]

I'm using netscape 6.2 linux version and this site is as stable as any other for me.
