I like it. When I logged on it was a nice surprise

Thank you all for your replies, both positive and negative - it is all very useful.

From what I can tell most of the issues we had we the launch have been caught by Perrin last night, or have been a case of browsers not refreshing correctly (CTRL + F5 is your friend!). We're looking into making this transition smoother for future releases, although if anyone does have any other problems or bugs that happen with the new version, please do let us know here or via PM! FreyaCrescent, I'll send you a PM concerning your IE issue.

* Not enough Kat in the banners. Pft.

I think we can all agree that it is a massive improvement not having my face on the banners, I'm certainly much happier XD
The rest - I'll catch you on msn as I'm sure you've probably found even more by now! Perrin says he'll check out the banding later on tonight. For the resolution issue - take pity on those with tiny laptops! (Me included!) I'll fight you to the death over this one

For the design, I'm sorry you dont like it Hexi! We know we cannot please everyone - people have such different tastes that there is not one colour you could pick that everyone would like. The idea of having a few different optional colours for the overall design has actually been thought about, and its something we'll consider for the future. Although even then you probably find there would be one person who wouldn't like any of the colour schemes

I'm unsure what you mean about the linking though (sorry, its been a long day at work) can you elaborate? Or send me a PM if you would rather do that.

Thanks Gunstar for pointing out about the Overview section for costumes, I'll take a look into it this evening.

Concerning people adding props as a separate entry, or compiling them all into one as Hexi has done above, I'll be opening a thread and discussing this separately.

Phew, epic reply over. Just what I needed straight after returning home from work! I need a cup of tea now...

I'm glad I wasn't the only person to think that XD

Been browsing (browsing so long I was late for school this morning D: ) and I APPROVE! That is all.

sorry what i meant was to be able to have hyperlinks like we can in the forum posts. like this!
but that code doesn't work in costume descriptions. i think it'd be handy to have. so we can link to maybe relevant videos or forum topics?

as for the colour schemes, you'll just have to put as many colours together as possible. or have it so we can choose our own 3 colours or something. i dunno you're the masterminds behind this.

also i was looking at th front page and everything is displaying correctly etc etc but it looks how it does when my laptop doesn't display it right. it's hard to explain though so forget that. Grey! T_T

hey mark its a bit of a problem, tbh i preffered the old site because it was easy to navigate and took no time were as this one you have to go into all different pages to see comments and pictures, and for some reason everytime i click on comments it wont displat them, whats up???


07 May 2008 - 07:012713
Ah cheers Hexi, I get what you mean. We're contemplating the idea of putting an editor on some of the content boxes around the site, so people will be able to use the bold/italic buttons and links. Currently looking into this

Hey Ryaoki, sorry you dont like it as much! The only main navigation change we've made is by splitting the costume page. Although it may seem a little inconvenient now, as we add more features to the site (we have many planned) it will make a lot more sense. It was either break the pages down into tabs as we have done, or have completely separate pages altogether! Hopefully once we release some new features in the upcoming months you'll see why we did it.

I'm concerned about the comments not displaying for you though! Is it only comments (i.e. do the photos/information page work?) and is it on every page? I'll be online this evening to try and sort this out for you


07 May 2008 - 07:492716
I think its the difference between Firefox and Internet Explorer

On my Pc at home it works fine and shows as tabs rather than bullet points, i can view comments and additional info through firefox.

At work im using Internet Explorer and it doesnt display as well as Firefox.

The problem I had with the costume interface on IE was that it wouldn't load the page correctly, and the photos would stay stuck on the loading animation. When you tried to select the photo, information or comment tab, the loading bar at the bottom of IE just said error loading page, then we'd just be left with a blank screen where the photos/information/comments are supposed to be displayed.

I've found nothing wrong using Firefox at home though!

Looks like the downtime was worth it and Die Hard was good too

i have the same problem.

* Okay, fixed the banding, firefox appears to not like flushing the cache of background images o.O my bad, anyway.

* If possible can the site colours be fixed rather than mostly fixed but some rely on system defaults? Firefox cares not, and if you use the default windows black-on-white scheme it all blends, but in the peculiar offbeat world my tablet lives in (high contast/white on black) and should I ever lower myself to using IE, all the text goes white on white XD

..and the gradient fades to white then cuts to whatever my background colour is, but that's me using wacky resolutions again - 768x1024

* I've tested in FF, IE6 and IE7 and everything seems intact there.. I may start turning random things off and see if anything breaks the site the way others are describing..

I'm really sorry about this Ryaoki, and to others who are still having trouble! Due to the spectacular site failure we had yesterday (and the time spent fixing it) we haven't had time to address the current issues, such as the comments tab.

Believe me we want nothing more than everyone to be able to use this site without any problems, that is why we created it! We're working hard to try and solve the issues we have, or work out what is happening. Please be patient and support us by not giving up (There's only two of us here working on the back-end of the site and we have full time jobs - fixing things on here is how we spend half our evenings! Okay..that makes us sound like we have no lives...but you get the point )

Thanks to everyone for the detailed descriptions coming in of errors - everything like this helps!

I wasn't here from the begining but I can't wait to see the furture updates I love it when websites update stuff and theirs no stuff for us to play with


09 Sep 2008 - 13:495892
i like the added tabs to costumes and the other new odds and ends you added, i did howeve come accross a possible bug but i think its cool xD ... if i look at costumes and i click 1 tab (pictures/info/comment) and then click another in quick succession(sp) they que up under eachother on the same page.. i dont think this is visually a bad thing but i would hate for something little like this to lead to a bigger problem later so i thought i'd shout about it ^^

I like the new features. I do like the journal section and the to do list. I like that more photos is an option. Not tried out the tagging feature yet.

I must say that I'm loving this site even more. Keep it up.

It's due to the server change. It's probably still having teething problems from when they moved it over to the new server and I'm sure Perrin is working on it when he can. In the news post he did mention that the homepage is running slowly.

I have a couple of questions.Firstly,since the site changed I no longer receive email notifications when I have a new PM on this site.Is this no longer possible or is there some way I can turn this feature back on? If not then are there any plans to re-enable this feature? Secondly,when I try to send someone a PM by clicking on the send message icon on their profile,it no longer lets me do it in a straightforward manner,it just displays a list of my inbox messages or something,and I have to then click on compose and then type the actual name of the person I want to message wheras before it all use to be a lot simpler.Am I missing something?
