While not really publicized, any member can submit news for admin approval at:

http://gravitybong.net/submitnews.php

That way the post at least credits the author and we don't have to port an email into a news post.


Also, we can automatically embed TF2 RSS feeds into the news as another filler so that anytime a post is made on TeamFortress.com, it's also made here.


YES! DOUBLE YES!

Hick is all over that shit.

Thank you sir.

Can we mention it in the news section? I think any time we do anything "server wide" it would be a good idea to put it in the news section for 2 reasons:

1. Inform everyone.
2. Keep the front page looking new.

The forum design is so bland it wouldn't matter to make it look "new" or not.
Seriously, BONG's visual appeal makes Fallout games look good.

I'm sorry that we don't live up to your expectations, could you please show us the forums for your wildly popular tf2 server to give us an idea of how we should be doing things?

Edit: So yeah, all unnecessary snarkiness aside, could you please try to deliver a single message in a manner that doesn't make me wanna go all bruce banner and destroy you? If there's useful critique hidden in that post it might be nice to not force people to dig through a pile of shit to find it.

One of our long-lost admins changed the look of the site about 3 years ago, wasn't a popular move so it reverted back to what we have. This one is comfortable and easy to navigate. Also, re-skinning it would be up to Helix.

Wasn't a long lost admin, it was Helix. The new site was nice but ultimately not as practical/eye friendly as this was.

I'm all ears for any suggestions on the site/forum look and feel. I don't think our site is really outdated or hideous but am always open to new feedback.

This time around if we were going to re-skin it I think a mock-up visual would need to be approved by 95% of the community before all the work was completed. Here is the past theme we had for a short time.

For my 2ยข...

As far as the look and layout of these forums, compared to other gaming ones, this site is definitely the easiest to navigate and well put together. From the shoutbox to the "latest threads" and the "latest replies", imo, doesn't get any better than it is already. The only thing I'd do, if I had skills, is maybe add an option to a few different color schemes.

For TF2 world news and keeping the front page fresh, like Helix stated, embed the RSS feed from TF2 blog.

Thanks
