A surprise for Tom

Posted by bob - August 24th, 2007


So we've made a change to the BBS today. I won't bother describing it since it's detailed in the accompanying image, but I will say I like it.

At first I was skeptical, since I was simply used to seeing it one way and it seemed like devoting time to such a small detail was a waste. But Tom was insistent and I agreed to mock it up for him eventually. Now after seeing it live I'm fully on board. No need to use 6 lines when 3 will do, and since Experience is just a further breakdown of Level anyway, it was extremely redundant.

The best part is that it's a surprise for Tom. He mentioned he really, really wanted it taken care of, but has no idea we made the change yet. When he logs on tonight after putting in a long day at PAX it'll be there to remind him that we're still working hard back east.

Oh God, someone hole me...please...

Holing someone sounds very, very dirty...

Well.... I guess I can live with it. It makes everyone look better than what they are, so that's a plus.

better how?

Experience going is okay, but I did like headings having their own line with info being under it. Really though, I don't care enough either way.

In firefox, the stats are on a different line as the indicator(like in the first pic), rather than next to it (like in the second) so it takes up 5 lines instead of 3. Thought I'd point that out. Otherwise, it looks much better :)

refresh! (you're still using the old CSS)

I didn't even notice.

I guess that's good.

So do you feel like you should add something down there now that you have space? I don't know, You can do it I guess...

I still think experience would be nice to have. If you put it in as just the amount you've deposited and not as a fraction, it wouldn't take up alot of room. I think you'd agree. Especially since some levels take a couple thousand experience to attain.

The aura name could be removed too, since the icon already shows it.

not for mods and admins, it doesn't...

Counts down till Tom makes a post and/or news thread about it. Good job as usual. !@

awsoem go bob

It looks better this way. I was wondering what was missing when I posted on the BBS. Exp points don't really matter with posting anyway since people can just look at your icon/lvl.

Ah, much better. No one seems to be interested in looking at people's exp when on the BBS anyway.

asjdgfsaj THIS RUINS THE WHOLE NG EXPERIENCE FOR MEH. I'MMA GO LEAVE NOOGRUNDS NAO.

But I do like how it is less cluttered around that area now. Makes it look better.

Also, those are some narrow sunglasses you have thar.

Heh. JohnnyUtah did all the caricatures and gave me those crazy things. I do have glasses like them, but they're not quite as thin and definitely a lot less Elton John.

This is better for some strange reason because in the forums exp. isnt really important,for me anyways.

Sigs better be fucking bigger, then.

sir yes sir?

You're simply amazing, Bob. Really.

Oh ok, I thought something was wrong with my computer. Love'n the new look more and more.

NOOOO YOU MONSTER!, I LIKE SHOWING OFF MY EXP WHEN POSTING!!!

Couldn't you just remove the sign up date?

</3

Now seriously.

Why did Tom ask for this and not to fix the dead Flash & Movie review links found in our profiles, or something that's actually worth taking time to do?

:S

Well, because ROSS AND JIM work on things like that, and TOM AND I work on little visual things. GOT IT?

Well, I say we get are 10 extra pixels back for our sigs instead of this crazy 50 pixels.... I miss 60....

It looks alright, but I've got to admit, I'm not quite used to it, yet. I actually used to look at experience (out of curiosity) just to see where users stood -- how close or far they were from their next level. I know I could see that just as easily by going into their profiles, and I could get used to that.

But I'll probably just stop looking at experience points completely :P
