What do you think of the site?

Post  CrashSmAshley on 2010-05-18, 17:49

How do you like the layout? What could make it better? Any suggestions? All ideas and opinions welcome!
The foundation of a great forum is it's members!

I'll start. I'm glad us Washingtonians have our own little forum for aquarium enthusiasts. I think it would be neat though if we all had a way to kind of personalize the way it looks. Like have an option in our preferences to pick another kind of layout/design. Just a thought Smile

I dont think theres anything wrong with the layout
it would SUCK if this forum started to look like myspace or face book

So my opinion keep it the same

I don't mean it like myspace. No one else would be able to see what layout you picked except for you. It would be just a preference for users to change the theme they wanna see I guess.

I agree, I love meeting new people and this site was a great idea!

what's involved with being able to attach images directly, server issue?
ya know what "they" say about pictures . . .
Not a critical issue, just at the top of my wish list.
maybe someone could bullet point me through the best alternate option if it's not something in the immediate works??

thanks

cool site glad it's up!

I'm not sure I understand what you're talking about. Are you talking about attaching photos in a post like this?

This site sucks and we are a bunch of losers for spending so much time here.......... screw off I'm joking. This site is rad, and we administrators are working on changing the layout a little nothing too major. Just trying to make improvements. If we get some feed back from all of the people here it will give us a better idea of what direction to head in. I'm in the process of trying to put together a few ideas that I have and hopefully getting all the mods and admins together to bounce some ideas around. The fact that this site is local makes it so we can get together in person and really bite down on issues or try to resolve conflicting ideas. We will definitly make some changes and it will be trial and error if something dosent work out we will nix the idea and go back to the old way if it does work out we will figure out why it was succesfull and try to implement those same ideas elsewhere. Mods and admins be on the lookout for a mass pm that will directed at the time and place that we will meet.

Above the space you type in there is a line of icons. Look for the one that looks like a picture (should be 16th from the left). If you hover your mouse over it, it will say "Insert image:". Just click on that icon and add your picture link. Or you can just remember the code which is [*img*]*insertURLhere*[*/*img*] Remove all of the *s and leave no spaces

I think a local meet would be great. Will be looking forward to that message. Hopefully I can make it. If not, then I'll just give someone my number and text them ideas and such to share at the meeting

Home Page

Post  sandnuka on 2010-05-27, 01:35

well, being a Admin, I was going to shoot this idea off to the other admins about the layout... but since we are all kinda voiceing opinions and getting feedback from members I want to see what people think of this..........

We dont have a homepage... Our homepage is the forum... I think the first thing we should see Front and center picture of a POTM winner... then below the picture a WFB weekly newletter with Misc. info on it.... on the left side of the homepage we have links to: The Forum, Classifieds, Users Gallery, FAQ, Members..... basically the tabs at the top of our page now... but just moved to the left of the page and go vertical with the links.

what do we think of this Idea members???? And just to come out and say it, we dont even know if it can be done yet.... lol.... Thanks for your comments and Ideas, the members are what make the forum a great place to be!

I think that the Homepage would be nice to have, and to have a great picture of one of the members fish front and center would be incentive for more members to post pictures in the POTM! IMO.

I think a dark blue background with a lighter blueish/grey box inside would be nice to look at and easy on the eyes. This is a little bright, but it's not bad at all. Site is looking great so far!

Love the site! I agree with TRD_Power about the background, maybe a shade or two darker. Also the chat box needs a little work. I have to enlarge the chat box quite a bit to be able to see the "enter text box".

I like the site alot, i'm on other fish sites and the Washington sections on those is pretty boring and not many active members, so i'm glad lots of locals are jumping on board this site.
