dragster down again?

Re: dragster down again?

Keep the suggestions coming for the site (main & forum) and we will look at the consensus, what is possible etc etc. I prefer the forum view and compared to this topic view, especially if there is a lot of posts.

PS Ali, you using  640x480 resolution still, its not that big LOL?
PPS I sent you a email about those photos LOL.
PPPS Fix your car already!

Re: dragster down again?

hehe
Car is almost finished mate
We were awaiting one alloy head have got pretty much everything else, shall be a different car this time (god willing) and are entered for the sept 8th

Yes as for the pages esp. forum pages i think there is a verticle 4 inches of wasted space as there are 2 banners showing ALL THE TIME if you get me!

I admin a vBulletin site myself and i know how lazy people can be so they really dont like havign to think but much rather see what they are looking for (in a strange psycholigical way)

but see what the consensus is,
its content in the end that matters and the crowd it draws (lets hope we all have a new home)

Re: dragster down again?

also food for thought (i take it this is a different brand of forum software?)
is there an option to show the username of any user logged in at the top somewhere that indicates you are logged in? (i.e Welcome back Ali R... or "Ali R, LOG OUT" or something of the like with association of a notifications tab/ PMs etc in one location? (im sure you get what i mean but i could screen shit some sort of example if you prefer?)


the other thing i wasto ask (and please slap me if im reading it wrong) but the dates on each post seem to be DAY YEAR and TIME not a complete date of __/__/__

There is a module at the base of the page which gives you all kind of stats including logged on users and prolific users.

I have simplified the date format it reads today or yesterday then d-m-y and time.

I have also tidied up the top of the forum page.

Re: dragster down again?

Dragster is it going to come back or is it dead and buried. Sorry to me there just seems to be to much on the opening page of Dragnews. People want ease to browse as it can overwelm people quiet easily.

Not meaning to start a storm, but this is where things get interesting/opinionated.

Me, I love the homepage. Everything is there for me to see and if I choose to read further I do. Even when I open the homepage on my phone it still works really well.

But again, that is just my opinion and trust me, there are plenty of people in the world who would think a whole bunch differently to me!!

I guess because this sites intention is to provide news over anything else. We are working on an update that will see things change to what they are now. So we appreciate your feedback as it gives us things to plan in the new design.

As for Dragster, we have no idea? It is up to those folks I guess?

Re: dragster down again?

Maybe the least they can do (the owners of Dragster) is to put a simple Closed sign on the index page of dragster.com.au letting people know it's closed and not coming back or any other status they care to mention.  It's like a friend changing their phone number and not telling anyone and it's god damn disrespectful to all the previous honest users of the site to not let them know.
