Website Update - Monday 11th July 2011

the mobile site is good readable maybe because of oversaturated and overcontrast of oled (what i miss there is that i cant do pitch to zoom in any browser anymore) except the quotes are broken in android browser and opera mobile .... but to browse on desktop blows now

the best thing to read text is black on white each post/topic separated by some color bars and if you want to play a bit with colors than change either background or textcolor but not both

currently its all just low contrasted greys with attention focusing on userprofiles (due to colors and contrast) rather than on post content

Quotes will be fixed once the background rebuild is done.

There needs to be clear seperation between the Pinned Topics and "loose" topics, otherwise it gets a bit confusing. Also it isnt clear what the read and non-read topics are, colour contrast is weak.

Even I can't upvote so I think it's a bug.

Thanks everyone for the reports so far :blink:

Voting fixed, MoDaCo dude shrunken, clearer colouring on top options (will make a further change to make if clearer they are breadcrumbs), more 'white' in the background mix, subtle font resizing in the main forums to make announcements slightly more subtle, changed line spacing to fit 'more on screen'... the work continues... :blink:

Yeah...welllllllll..... it's not the best design in the world, and anyone will say it does stick out like a sore thumb, reallllly.

Also, new feature request. Can the bar at the top (with Recent Topics, Shared Links, Watched Content etc.) be collapsible? It's pretty much devoid of useful content, and just gets in the way. I don't use the features it has, and stuff like "Latest Files" hasn't been updated since late 2010.

That's looking better already. Especially the top bar. Good stuff :blink:

Ah yes, that means the actual infastructure is in place, but I mean actually have one of the panels containing those links, so it's only one click, so you can zip from post to post.I was thinking each of the headers there can roll up, so you can have just what you want. I would, therefore minimize "Useful Links" and have a big "Liked Content" pane

I mean, these are only ideas, I know some of this could be a massive pain in the tits to code.

Hi,

Are links to zips working? On this guide there is a link to "shrink_cache_sane.zip" but it redirects to an index page.

Always get updates and new things to see when I'm working nights, MoDacO dude can't be 90's as it was created around 2003-4 from memory. That was a fun competition with and brings back memories.

Sites working fairly well at work but notice the reply box initially takes a few seconds to display what you have typed.

Unfortunately, the new design is all but unusable on my crappy, yet very cheap, netbook (single-core Atom running Firefox on top of Ubuntu).

The graphics are much, much too busy for a low-resolution device such as a netbook and scrolling is glacial at the moment. Personally, I've always hated graphical 'bling' on forums in any case, as content should be king. Anything else gets in the way for me.

Obviously, I understand most people have much faster PCs than me with higher-res screens and their experience will probably be better than mine. The option of a simplified theme would be useful for cheapskates like me. ;)

Probably handy for me that I've recently moved to using a Defy and I only need to check back here to keep my girlfriend's Blade up to date!

MoDaCo will be undergoing scheduled maintenance on Monday 11th July 2011.

During the maintenance period the site will be set to 'read only' and you will not be able to post new topics or replies.

The maintenance should be complete and full functionality should be returned by early afternoon.

Thanks for your support! :blink:

Hi Paul,

The new look was perfect and much easier transit through the Forum now.

Very good. :)

And here is my attempt of fixing up a few things. Change of colour on the top, shinking of some things, adding a floating sidebar. Just a "Quick" photoshop job, but I think it's an idea on whence to go.modacoimprovements.jpg

I am pretty sure the forum software has also been updated so the theme is bound to change.

One good thing is the forum now has TapaTalk Support :)

Hi Paul & all the worker elf's,

Simply wanted to say thanks, this forum has some great users, and the site and general attitude of the "main man" make it very special. There a few rough edges, but that is normal. In my job as a UI designer we NEVER ever use the first iteration. It takes time and a lot of tweaking

One subjective point, another user has also mentioned this, the MoDaCo hoody guy, really? I feel it doesn't convey the great sense of community you get here, just a though. Final thought, the text in the breadcrumb trail at the top left;

breadcrumb_7f7e.jpg

The text should be white, the same as the selected/active section. My apologies if this has already been pointed out to you.

Overall some big hurdles have been crossed, well done to all that have been involved. "We're not worthy!"

Anil.

Errr... Anil, it IS white.

Try refreshing your browser cache, or do a CTRL+F5 refresh.

Tell a lie, it is for me on Windows@MoDaCo, not on Android@MoDaCo. Odd.

the new look actually works quite well if you turn images off but leave javascript on - you get performance without losing functionality

Is there any way to block people from sending me pms? I get too many & most are totally pointless, they really annoy me, especially with email notifications turned on. I had to turn email notifications off again, it didn't save that setting.

this is a known issue even before the upgrade. must be lack of asian/chinese language support.

i kinda like the theme, much better than the "old" one.
