Title: TBA v7.0 is here
Post by: rtil on May 17, 2013 02:18 AM
(http://www.thebackalleys.com/style/images/allie.png)
Allie decided that TBA needed a makeover this week, so she spent the last few days changing the layout (as you may have noticed). After the remodel, Allie ate 300 pizzas to restore her energy and evolved into Allie 2.0! There are still some finishing touches that need to be made, so if you see anything out of place, it may or may not have been noticed - feel free to mention it here. All praises, accolades and tributes may also be placed in this thread. If for some reason you hate the new layout, all animes are currently serving other customers - but rest assured, your call is important to us. please stay on the line until the next available anime is able to assist you.

I love the new tagline generator

the only thing I see off is when you go to a user's profile page, there's a scroll bar on the bottom

Allie thanks you all for your kind words, and the list of bugs have been sent to her brain. when her hangover subsides, she will get right to making fixes.

Old pizza girl was cuter...
same girl, new evolution. if it's any consolation, she can much more easily rip your dick off now.

how many pizzas will she need to evolve in to allie 3.0?
this is presently unknown - as unbelievable as it may be, pizza alone may not provide enough sustenance for her next form.

Post by: RichChap on May 18, 2013 02:55 PM
wow looks really great! beautiful design job. my only complaint is the way highlighting text looks. now when it gets highlighted there isn't a huge contrast from unhighlighted text like there used to be but i'm sure i'll get used to it :P excellent work overall.

this is true, the problem with a light bg color for highlights though is that browsers have limitations for what color they can display, and it ends up looking really hard to read. so i just decided to make the text bright and the background as dark as it can be.

I love this.
Allie sends her deepest thanks  :slut:

actually i get that too and i'm using opera
Title: Re: TBA v7.0 is here
Post by: rtil on May 21, 2013 02:49 PM
wow people still use opera

well i'll take a look at it in opera as well
Title: Re: TBA v7.0 is here
Post by: Sinitron on May 22, 2013 08:22 AM
well i was using chrome but everyone told me it was evil spyware and i should feel bad for supporting google's evil technocratic empire so i was like "fine" and went back to opera because

- it isn't internet exploder
- it isn't firefox
- it isn't shit (like the above)

though apparently the new IE doesn't suck so much but whatever
Title: Re: TBA v7.0 is here
Post by: rtil on May 22, 2013 02:12 PM
the new ie is ok but i'm sure opera is better. it's just rare that i come across a frequent user /someone who willingly uses it on a pc
Title: Re: TBA v7.0 is here
Post by: Sinitron on May 23, 2013 11:28 AM
i guess they made more of a breakthrough with mobile devices or something? anyway, me and my tech-savvy cousin have been using it for just about as long as it's existed, it's a pretty ok browser since it comes with everything necessary out of the box and doesn't need a million plugins before it stops sucking shit

my cousin also insists it's faster than everything else, though i can't verify this (not like i give a shit if it loads up a splitsecond faster)
Title: Re: TBA v7.0 is here
Post by: rtil on May 23, 2013 06:27 PM
the avatar problem should be fixed now. it wasn't a browser specific problem, it had to do with avatar dimensions
Title: Re: TBA v7.0 is here
Post by: Kött on May 24, 2013 06:09 AM
Well ye, dimensions... that was my first thought as well but you seemed to be pretty convinced of it being a firefox issue so I thought I was simply too much of a noob to understand the depth of the problem. It works perfectly fine now.

Post by: Greenkitten on May 24, 2013 07:20 AM
One of the slogan generators says 'Kittens' I was under the impression that I was the only kitten here.

i did until i saw someone with opera have the problem. then i looked at the avatars and realized mine was perfectly square. so yeah

One of the slogan generators says 'Kittens' I was under the impression that I was the only kitten here.
the site is more appealing in pluralities. they don't need to know we only have one kitten - a kitten who talks and drinks!

Circle avatar looks right for me finally. It was actually messed up since it was first implemented but I wasn't sure if it was a bug or not. I'm using Chrome if you're wondering.

it was a bug. i just never knew until someone showed me a screenshot. oops! :wile:

You have probably noticed it already but notifications such as the ones for live streamings cover up a part of the navigation bar. I'm not 100% sure but as far as I can recall, the old version didn't have this flaw.

(http://www.thebackalleys.com/dump/files/843/986kJ0_bug3.png)
Title: Re: TBA v7.0 is here
Post by: rtil on May 29, 2013 02:14 PM
it did.. it's because the stream pop-up bar floats above everything else. you'll notice if you scroll down, it stays there. you can also close it with the red 'x' on the top right corner. that creates a cookie and it will remember not to show it to you again for another 3 hours or something. i forget how long

Hey.. ah.. li... like, wu-uh ya-know?

The theme is great and the website is working very efficiently.

So far, so good. I enjoy how my avatar can be seen on the top of the page next to my username, where it is very convenient to navigate through my personal mail and to check if I got any new replies. A great feature for a great forum!

lol mine does. She likes to refer firefox as firefork. which tbh wouldn't be a badass name for a browser.
