Re: To Do List

If you click "BBCode" underneath the posting box (where it says 'BBCode: on') you should get a popup window with help for BBcode and smilies etc - the list is there...
I do think that it's not obvious enough that the help page is there though, so i've added in an extra line below making it clearer. Hope that helps smile

Re: To Do List

Add a voting system for users and guests - from 0 to 5, the average between votes will be shown.
why? a simple hit counter only shows how interesting game's name is, not how popular or good it is.

Re: To Do List

Yeah, just wanted to apologise for the lack of updates lately - had deadlines come up on a couple of other sites that i'm getting paid to make, unfortunately they have to come first roll

But yeah, i like the voting idea - in fact, i was already bouncing the idea around in the back of my head (it nearly went in about a month ago but my thinking behind it fell through). I'll take another look at it soon.

Might make the code generally applicable too, so we can have polls on the homepage. What do people think?

Re: To Do List

Change some of the font colors. Some of the brighter fonts in the forum index that describe the sections and name of the author for every thread are impossible to read. (bright font on bright background.)

And have a look at the column width of the psp version of the forums... The column with the name and avatar takes about half of the screen. Like this (screenshot taken on pc)

The gap in between is a lot larger when you view it with a psp, and I guess we all know you can't waste any space on a tiny screen yikes

Re: To Do List

Cool - will take a look at the PSP forum layout... builder
Which font colours are you talking about in particular? The topic descriptions and autohors appear dark grey on a white background to me, pretty easy to read?

Re: To Do List

They're only hard to read on psp, they're fine on pc. Just have a look with your psp and you'll see...

Re: To Do List

There we are, I've written code for site polls - i'll expand it to run alongside games soon, so you can specifically vote about how good games are. For the meantime though, have a play and see if you can break it smile

Re: To Do List

hmm, yeah - think i'll leave that menu for a little while though, going to do a big revision of it soonish. The way it works at the moment is a little crude, i'm going to make it much more user-specific and dynamic in a bit.
It's quite a bit of work though, and there are more pressing things that need doing first methinks. smile

Re: To Do List

Are the text colours on the forum index better on the PSP now? I've made the text a little darker...

I think not very, but would be good if you could see who're you talking to (this could be optional)

Re: To Do List

Oh, sorry - i did read your suggestion but forgot to reply about it :$
I'm going to rewrite the profile section soon, mainly to put more fields into the sign up page, to encourage new users to fill out the profile a bit more... I'll put in the age field then.

Once again, apologies for the lack of updates lately - i've started rowing and as a result have even less time for coding, plus i've had various other jobs knocking around... I'll try and get a few bits and pieces done this week if i can. smile

Re: To Do List

Maybe you should change 'soulreaver' to 'soulofdarkness' on the wallpapers page... I guess it's not urgent though roll
and what is the admin note for?
