#1 SITE REBOOT 2014

The site has been at it for over four years, over 1,000 registered members, with the best and most talented, not to mention humorous regulars any dive could ask for. The time has some to "streamline" what the site is all about and what we do and where to go for what you are looking for etc, etc...

So we begin discussing the reboot!

The reboot will not delete any of our old posts, I intend to move them into an archive. The reboot will restructure not only our root directory of the forums, but it will promote the subjects that we are highly interested in and still have plenty of distractions for leisure and more inspiration. For example "Media" http://gameface101.playogame.com/c1-media
will be split into "Graphics" "Music" etc...

One of my thoughts is to share as many free tutorials for our "101"
section. So if any of you have or would like to share steps on how to anything... don't be shy ^^ (I will make it a promise to myself to share one at least once a month no matter how cheesy)

Also there will be new fields in our profiles which we will refer to as "pandora-profiles" they will remain hidden to guests but members can open the box, get it? some of these new fields will allow you to select the icon that reflects your preference in sex, religion, politics, and more. Cool

should any of you would like to make an icon for this, you can use the icon maker : http://gameface101.playogame.com/h8-g101-icon-maker

What will be most important for the reboot is feedback, members please share your thoughts, guests... register, become a member share your thoughts, talk to your friends, family, ask what would make this even more better as we are on to something good why not make it great +

Will the site be staying the same graphically or do you have plans to make it even more user-friendly? (minimalistic I guess, which is my preference for things, but it's fine if you don't like minimalism Razz)

more user-friendly never hurts and minimal graphics means less load time for those with slow computers

I would like to stick with the icons and the 24x24 and 32x32 and 48x48 sizes.

Any graphics for example?

I can always do 101 gameplay videos. Retro games as well, say Heroes of Might & Magic (one of my favorite old school strategy games) and maybe any other requests if I have played a moderate amount of the game.

It's like an exploration/build your team of monsters game. I guess it's kinda like Starcraft with more of an exploration twist. As I said, two is my favorite. Some might say that Three is better, but meh.

remember this site reboot isn't going to happen overnight :Op

I've been getting some feed back via e-mail, pm, and over the phone.

@swoop- streamline, streamline, streamline - got it

@M - going to try minimalistic graphic wise and better CSS3

@everyone - any ideas on making this place less confusing and more appealing please share.

*all forums will be scrubbed, nothing will be deleted only moved to the city dump.

two words that this site will focus on, one is "Making" and the other is "Games"

Looks my other reply didn't make it ._.

I made the sketch 20 minutes after my previous reply.



Home page:
1. Logo/banner
2. Menu
3. A javatype scrolling thing. I'm sure you've seen them around. Highlights important threads in the forums or big news.
4. Changes the forum type for the scrolltype thing. Say Gaming, Writings, General Discussion, etc.
5. Changes threads in the said forum. So it'd show different writing threads if you were to select the Writing forum for #4.
6. A small description from the OP of the thread.
7. A interactive live chatbox

Forum:
1. Logo/Banner
2. Menu
3. Forum types. To keep it kinda small and organized I'd recommend something like this:
4. Latest Topics scroller. Clicking Latest Topics will take you to the "view posts" page as it shows currently on the left side bar.
5. The most fun option. The User Control Bar. Has the Search feature, Edit Profile, Login/Logout, Etc. You scroll over it and the smaller bubbles pop up.
6. Currently Online/Last Online with the last 24hours.

Depending on how serious we get, i would really like to find our own hosting! Very Happy
we need to invest to make us.. invest our time! Very Happy


awesome blueprints motion, they look good and i can see where you are headed with it.


are you proposing that the forum be on the back end?

i was thinking that we should focus on our content, what we produce first?.. mods wiggles add-ons.. GF's games/music/ produc..

have the forum be the underbelly and something for the regulars to enjoy, but the lurkers will have to earn access

The forum being a back end, kinda. The homepage will give insight that the forum is where most of our ideas and creations are. By having the javascript main thing, it tells viewers that there's something big or being worked on while maybe providing some content, like say GF drops a small album or the entirety of GF collaborates a big album, then we can put that up on the homepage for download.

Back to the reboot...

Currently compressing the CSS for this site, making corrections and cleaning things up. (this will take a while)

Home Page:
Will look into having a shoutbox/live chat and other adjustments according to M's feedback.

Forum:
Debating on the Root directory for Categories/Forums.
Adding more options to the interactive header and making it shorter in height.

*for those that haven't tried or didn't know you can toggle the site using these buttons below the header.


will also look into other touch friendly, easy navigation, and in your face update options.

the less directories the better, the front end should be intuitive and simple, as with most of our devices, access it, and getting to the content should be more that 2 levels deep. (content being on the 3).. Site welcome page, entry to content area, content.

Add color, !! this place is vibrant and full of so many ideas, have a plan background is instantly.. offputting" for what i might discover here.

less is more Very Happy i cant stress this is enough, i know your mind is supercomplicated GF but sadly to say the majority of people out there on not on par.


you know common sense is anything but common ...
