This thread will be for the future design updates of the Forum. Everything from Design (background, images, colors) to features can be discussed here. If you would like to recommend a change or addition, this is the place. Very Happy

I will post design ideas here, also, to get opinions from everyone.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Emoticons

If you want to recommend a emoticon, you must put forth one to be deleted and what its being replaced with - to vote on.

removed/Replaced:
:monkey: (monkey) - Deleted
:alien: (Alien) - Deleted
:cat: (Cat) - Deleted
:albino: (Albino) - Deleted
:clown: (clown) -Deleted



Added:
High Five (high five)
Hug (hug)
Frying Pan (frying pan)
Clap (clap)
wave (wave)


You can search google for "Free emoticons" if you would like and make a recommendation.

http://www.freesmileys.org/ (quick site i found)

Or just request a type and ill try to hunt something down similar.


Thanks.

I like the cute monkey and puppy you posted in the Spam thread a while back. Those would be great! And maybe one about eating or drinking since we tend to discuss that kind of thing a lot in the general discussion threads. Just an idea... Whatever you come up with will be great!

Well there are 5 being replaced, which should be enough if people choose right.I could possibly add more, but only if need be I feel.

Also I know there were more people who wanted this, speak up!

I've never quite understood the Portal page versus the Home page. I get that the Portal has most recent/popular threads, and some general update stuff on it, but I feel like they could be better integrated. As a relatively new user, I did not realize for a few visits that there was even anything more in depth than the Portal page. I thought those 15 or 16 threads were all I could easily access.

I respect that the Portal is more about the site (statistics, announcements, etc.) than it is about the band per se, I just feel as if these are almost two separate home pages.

The Home page is more of an Index Page, perhaps a simple rename would be a bit less confusing. Conventional web design says the Home page is the first page a user sees, but that is not the case on Dimestore Saints

also, maybe making the bar at the top that has all the links a bit bigger?

That being said, I love this site! I hope you take this with that knowledge that I just want to help make it even more fantastic

^ clemsn78

This forum was made on a standard layout that the hosting forum site made available. Believe me the whole portal / home thing was a bit weird to me as well.

The hosting site is basically

1.Sign up
2. Choose layout
3 .go

So that is the free forums naming not ours. I am looking into getting some type of redesign going currently, And cleaning up the look, I'm in very basic stages right now, but keep your eye out for an updated look in the future. Very Happy

I hadn't thought of a high five emoticon. Good idea, Steph! I think we would use that one a lot. (insert high five emoticon here Wink)

:high five:!! it will be better when we dont have to imagine it...

there are probably more than those five emoticons that could be done away w, Deb! not that it matters, i just noticed some emoticons like the flower or the afro one, i don't think i've ever seen them be used.

Thats why I asked any others in my original post.

Also unfortunately, unless more people show interest in the emoticon changes I can't change them. No . People not responding basically says they are happy with the current settings. So i have to be fair.
