I've been bombarded by Scallion about the design. After the poll completes I'll be deciding on weather or not to ditch the current design and work on something else.

I'd like to know your input, or if you'd like to help feel free to submit ideas.

I am looking for a few individuals who have some PHP/CGI skills since I'd like to have the site purely in PHP/CGI.

I would like to finally get the f**king searches to work, theres a conflict with the host on that but i've been working on it. I'd like to have the search database stored and working through a cgi script as opposed to MySQL.

Any ideas feel free to post, I'll be looking around.

the ugn design has been around since i first joined (when beard and gizmo made the trade of UGN, the graphics for the logo and others got cleaned up). i know the layout and design and where things are like the back of my hand (i never understood that phrase...who actually knows the back of their hand?)..it makes me feel as if i've been part of this family for a long time, knowing how things work, i like the current design, and have no problem with it.

as for making a new design, i have no problem with that either, new design means new members, and will attract some more people, new design will make the site look like new, even if the same content is there.

so on this topic, i am neutral, both options work fine, yes changing some things will help, improving others is a must.

i would not mind to help at all with any html..and css (my only web design help)..not very advanced with things other than css and html, but im willing to help if any is need

i hope the right outcomes come with this. what happens, happens

*****CAUTION******

Editing the design will have everyone and their brother saying...

Ohhh nice

or

I liked it better the other way.

What I am saying is once you open that can of worms make sure your design is what you want. Trust me, I just got RRFN to a design where MOST are cool with it.

Maybe make the site layout, but dont just put it over this one right away..
maybe find some kind of temp page to put it on. Then you can have people rate it, and you fix it. And then this goes on untill its the way people like it.

i like the current design, but it couldn't hurt much to come up with some other ideas. what really matters to me is the content and stuff to do/learn on the site. if you ask me, gizmo's time would be better spent adding to the text files, finding new programs to download, and stuff like that than redesigning the site

I like the layout alot, maybe a few small improves ments..... i think it would be better if all of us gathered some interesting information and shit and like help w/ content and scan through the old shit and get rid of what do apply or dont work these days etc.... information tends to get out of date after so long.

other than my reply about deleting old info not needed, etc. I have thought of some suggestions.... user ratings is a bitch. I think its not needed but if we should have them then we should have like fields where the person types y they rated u this... so some ass dont rate a intelectual person a 1 or a dumb ass a 4. Maybe scanning through old post and deleting bullshit that dont mean shit to ppl or closed ("porno" as an example). Cleaning out idle accounts, Assign people to find text files and downloads that r usful like the news man does with the news. I love the layout... so easy to use... besides the banners that get in the way . im sure ill think of more .

i agree with backslash on what he said in the irc chat... the top poster thing probably got ppl out of control top just post pullshit or non helpful replys.... i do it to sometime so i cant really complain but some people take advantage of it to much and with little effort in response to topics.

just as an example of old worthless posted.... a waste of space and something people really dont need to scan through to find what they want. My ports post in anarchy.... mistakenly posted there and has no reason to remain unless you just like me looking like an ass for making the mistake

think id b wise to close topics in the selling section or delete them after the items are sold.

hrm, i chose "needs some work" but I think i take that back. whatever I said before or what scally says or any of that, I think this layout is fine. I think we should all stop bitching, including myself, and start sending in content. Maybe if we would submit new texts instead of saying the kbase ones are useless, then the problem would be solved. And yeah, I agree the kbase should stay because whether they are useless now they are good reads. Sure, some cleaning would be nice since there are several of the same file, but taking it out i think isn't neccesary. Some tweaking would be good, but i think we are all complaining too much. so i'll stop.
