Big improvement!!

a suggestion for the page find.php would be to have a box on the left with a link to your mail,portal and info of subscribed msg threads, some kind of stats with an easy read link.

a suggestion for the right side of find.php would be a server down/up status link and below that on the right, a box titled [request a addon] that enables the person to submit an addon request with selectable areas for which type.

And with Adblock plus for firefox, the place looks a ton better than before!

When replying to a comment on a mod page (In this case, SSArena Frames) it's showing oldest first not newest.

  • When trying to update an addon, the box for the description is missing all the formatting options. This includes when posting comments, replying to comments, editing news at the portal, posting news to the portal, editing FAQ at the portal, creating a new FAQ entry at the portal, editing a page at the portal, creating a page at the portal, editing feature requests and bug reports, and when creating a feature request and bug reports.
  • Looking at an addon page under the tab "Addon Info.", the MD5 sum is in a edit box.
  • The MD5 sums for archived files (Old Versions) are missing.
  • The date and time format is wrong. Example of a correct form: 2008-01-22 17:16:57.
  • The site looks completely awful when editing forum posts and all formatting options are missing.
  • Editing a forum post doesn't show the time and date when the post was last edited and by whom.

Uhm, it could be me, but the color used on the forum for the Premium members on the light background (WoWI light skin) is unreadable. Also, I would put the login a little more clearly, it might help some - but that's an idea of course.

Color woes

I'm loving the new layout.. not at all difficult to adjust to. However, the Light/Dark skins are a bit counter-productive.. what are people to do about posting with font colors? For instance, my addon uses color to separate sections and make things easier to read and find... the colors are all light so that it looks great in the dark skin, but it looks horrible and is hard to read in the light skin.

Also, granted, I'd likely set the skin once and leave it, but why is it only accessible from certain pages? Especially with the above problem, it'd be nice to have the option to switch skins on addon pages so we can see things in both lights.

Just in case you missed this, Dolby.

Message editor should show all the normal options for you... what browser are you using? When viewing those pages can you do a CNTRL - F5 to force a refresh, maybe your browser is using the old cached java?

Editing forum posts does show last edited the same as before... after a few minutes of the post it will start showing last edited by.

Right now there aren't any MD5's for archives. That will be added in the near future.

I think the new site look is fantastic! Great job!

I haven't noticed anything major yet, but I'll look around for a bit and report anything.

I'm with you there. Although this new look is not too bad I miss the more vibrant look from before. This is just too ...blahhh.. for me. Grey and gloomy


I do appreciate all the hard work that goes into this site so please don't think I am ungrateful or anything. I'll get used to it I'm sure :P


Great work guys/gals/gnomes/everyone else on a great and smooth server switch .. and a new look and layout. Good job all.
