For those of you that use the chat page, your client has just been upgraded. Instead of the clunky Java applet, I've replaced it with a web-based client called Mibbit.

Mibbit looks better, runs better, and has more functionality. You can now:
  • select a nickname before you join
  • preview pictures and Youtube Videos
  • exchange files
  • create pastebin links
  • create short URL's
  • use smilies and colors
  • PM, ignore and whois people from the userlist
chat now!
++

Here's a picture of mibbit in action:

enjoy! Hope to see some of you that haven't chatted with us in the past or in a long time. It's like the forum, but ten times as wacky, and half as gay!

if you don't like it, it's really helpful if you explain why or how it could be better. saying "meh" doesn't help me at all

i would really appreciate everybody's input

That's a pretty cool looking layout there, do you have any other colour schemes in mind? How about being able to switch between certain colour themes?

<@salutations> i just ate 5 guys for the first time
<@salutations> my heart kinda hurts
<Ry99an> you mean
<Ry99an> their dicks?

<@Ashington> also only ops and vocaloids can grab my many boners
* Ashington sets mode: +o CVG
<@CVG> :D

<aether> how do you turn the drew pickles theme off of your profile
<aether> actually how do you just turn it off its on my forum view too ffff

yes, i want to at the very least let you be able to switch between light and dark. someday i'd even like for people to be able to make their own so i could add them. it would be cookie-based so your browser would remember which layout you wanted. but the default would be dark

you think the concept looks LESS generic? ahahahHAHAHAHAh ho ho ho

personally i think it looks flat and boring but i am a fag

i think the site looks quite nice as it is, it just needs redesigns of some of the forum buttons, etc, which look very dated

the huge font, the huge buttons, flat pastel colors, it all seems very simplistic. I really like the current site header, and the color scheme and general look are pretty nice imo, and in comparison this redesign and the other draft you posted look really boring

I wouldn't mind having the wallpaper gallery re-uploaded (stupid request), and seeing an option to reskin the forums (having more options than the 'freetown silver' look). Streamed audio via flash or preinstalled apps that embed on a webpage (Quicktime, Windows Media Player, etc) would also be cool (maybe I'm asking for too much...).

The preview of the new site looks cool!

art stuff is @ rmcartoons.com now, although i haven't put wallpapers up there yet. extra skins is on my to-do list, won't come until much later though. streamed audio, dunno about that, but i will want to add a functionality to the uploader so you can play the audio files on the page as well as download.

I will hold TBA music podcasts every Saturday
Just kidding, but the thought ran through my head during anigen's short podcasting period that it might be a fun idea
There may be pizza

I think the draft could use something on the Left and the Right. You have all that dead gray space there. I think if the users could customize that dead space with some sort of pattern either a violent red to hot pink pattern, cool blue to electric blue pattern or maybe even forest green to Kawasaki green pattern it could make the page so much more. Something, anything, to kill the dead space. Another idea, allow the user to upload their pic or select one from the TBA library to set as the background image. Then hat could be pasted on the sides.

I'm sure being a new poster and all this will be highly taken into consideration. I will wait with bated breath.

customization is not my #1 concern right now, i'm really focusing on the backend and the content. but i figure i might as well code it with a new layout in mind. i think what i will do is cut the dead space by simply removing it and making the page the width of the browser like i've always done.

and if anyone is concerned about the size of the fonts, don't worry. most of them will be smaller. i got a little lazy with the photoshop text tool
