NOTICE: Site Maintenance

My good people, BlueNC will be down this afternoon for a while. During this time we'll be making a few changes and upgrading some aging infrastructure. Once we're back up, expect the site to look and feel a bit different throughout the evening as we tweak some of the changes. Thanks for your patience and understanding. Progress marches on!

Hey Brother Lance!

We got's faith in ya Bro!

Damn!!!

I like it!!!

Keep up the changes. I assume the alien will become the BlueNC and HEY YOU FIXED THE LINK BUTTON TO LINK HIGHLIGHTED TEXT!!!

Alright!

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Beautiful job

Happy so far . . . and VERY happy to be having my FP back!

yeah, I was a little sick of the tent.

One possible bug, I have saved my comments settings several times now (threaded, oldest, 90 per page) but it keeps popping up.

I'm not sure

the italicized blockquotes are right. I use a lot of italics for other applications and use blockquotes for clearly identifying sourced content. I also liked the way the blue boxes broke up large blocks of text. My old eyes seem to need a bit of variety.

Just a thought.

Thanks, all!

Robert, I think that'll just stay at the bottom of the page. You'll probably learn to ignore it as you did under the old theme. ;)

A, I'll work on the blockquotes -- that's a good point.

I'm just a wet towel

Not quite sure I like the lime green? Maybe? I like the big BlueNC, though. I also like the blue blockquote box like Anglico. It works to break up the white without adding a picture....makes it easier on the eyes.

Gotta get back to the birthday party.

We think too much alike.

One more thingie. When I tried just now to do a poll entry, it said I need to select an "audience" - which appears to be limited to Piggie Project or November 7th conspirancy (?).

There's a red asterisk next to "Topic" on the new entry form.

Thanks! It's on the list.

The green may stay -- I'm looking at it now and it will be a major project to change it. It would be much easier to redesign the BlueNC feature graphics and adjust the text colors over there.

Youdaboss

Your work is so totally appreciated . . . I hope you know that. We'll all get used to whatever . . . just as long as we can make entries and comments!

BlueNC logo

is not clickable on "permalink" pages.

Status Update

Here's the status of a few of the concerns that have been brought to my attention:

Make all of the "BlueNC" logo clickable
STATUS: Most of it is clickable now, and the "home" link has been moved to first position.

1. I'd make the star 5-10% smaller. I like the look, but it feels just a touch too over-bearing. No big deal . . . just my opinion.
STATUS: The star is smaller.

What can we do to make the upcoming events list run longer than 58 days?
STATUS: The list is always 7 events long. There's no setting for the number of events displayed, so the only way to make the list longer is to hack the code that generates the block. The problem with this approach is that it makes upgrading the site later more difficult. Considering the "more" link at the bottom of the list, I'm inclined to let it go as it is.

Poll module broken
STATUS: fixed.

I'm off to redesign the blockquote. Keep the feedback coming!

can you just move it to the bottom of the page, below the reply box.

Not finding a way right off the bat

Robert, I've been doing some looking around and I can't find a non-hack way to accomplish this, and I'm not quite ready to alter the core software yet. I'll keep looking.

Thanks, Blue South

That is a serious problem, and I think I have it fixed. I think that the missing posts are appearing as they should, but I apologize if anything needs to be reposted.

I'm hitting the hay. This thread is a good place to post comments and complaints about the changes, as well as problems you're having. I'll check it first thing in the morning.

Well....my only complaint

was the green. I can deal with other stuff....I don't even know what's changed yet.(Other than the obvious stuff. It is wonderful having the front page back. Thanks Lance.

I'm trying to get everything ready and packed for the tailgate before the Panther's game tomorrow. I will have a 10 yr old and 2-12 yr olds with me. Oh lucky, lucky me!

Muy bueno

I like the feel. A little bubbly for me, but looks a lot cleaner!

We're Going Camping!!!

I'm gonna miss that big tent.

Kidding. I'm kidding.

The site looks great, clean, easy. If there are any bugs buzzing around, I haven't had them crawl into my underwear. Looks great, feels great!

Thanks for making it happen, Lance!

i like this new template.

it looks great, but there's one very minor and possibly insignificant aesthetic thing - if it were me doing the css tweaking, i'd make the right column the same pixel-width as the left.

"we're banging pots and pans / to make you understand / we're gonna bury you, man"

you MIGHT

not be the first person to suggest this... : )

Thanks, guys; I'll add that to my list

I like having one wider side column, but the right side could be narrower. I'm starting my new job tomorrow, so this particular item will be back-burner until the weekend.

You mean.....we're taking the back seat?

I'll give you the same advice I gave Targator......be nice to all the boys and girls on your first day. :)
