1. The new layout

      written by Ray Benefield
      I'm gonna make this post short and sweet. First of all, if you missed it yesterday Noklu made his first post as an author so congrats on that. Jonzorz and Mythic have also been promoted to authors so hopefully they will get to writing soon. Mythic is going to focus on doing RP favorites, but the rest of us can write them too. I'm not sure how Mythic is with the whole theory thing, but if he ever gets the want to write some theory then he can. Jonzorz is currently working on a theory on base design so stay tuned for that. If he ever actually finishes it. Anyways let's move on.


      Now functional


      If you visit the site often, then yesterday you may have watched as I tweaked the new layout so that it is at least functional. I had to get the forums up and running and adjust some of the coloring like link colors and header colors, and get the menu links up. I still have a lot of alignment issues to work with and a lot of font size/colors/styles and what not to work with. But since it is functional I'm just going to leave it up and make tweaks until it is fully functional. On some screens you may notice that there is a bit of space on the right. I plan on using that for the placement of the user submitted advertisements. Anyways, I'll be working on fixes over time so just to make sure I don't miss anything head on to the forums to the below thread and make sure you point it out. That is all for now folks. ;)

      Along with that space on the right you could perhaps add 'featured maps', or 'Things Godly likes' or 'Things RP likes', or 'Things we're doing' or other quick interesting news bits.

      In little boxes of course, not taking up the entirety of that space.

      I'm going to reserve that space on the right for user ads and that is all. In the sidebar however I am looking into adding a Forge Lesson Quick link section or a "Latest" section with the latest RP Favorite, Forge Lesson, and creation. Or I will do the Forge Lesson Quick Links and just the latest RP Favorite... that would probably be best.

      Just noticed, the "B" for the blogger thingy looks like forever-alone. Coincidence?

      Aww I really liked the old layout. But I can tell that you worked really hard on the new one, so good job Godly. I wonder, could you drain a bit of the contrast out of the colors? it seems like theirs a bit to much eye catching going on.

      What colors? The background colors? Because I think the colors look fine. And sorry you like the old layout. Many people like this one more, so I've got to go with the majority.

      It feels weird saying it, but I feel a bit of pride when I see how the site is progressing.
