This idea came to my mind recently... I was thinking would it be possible to implement some sort of side-scrolling (or maybe top-down scrolling) thingie which would announce other additions to the site besides the updated games, along with relevant dates. Maybe something like ''Things to watch'' on AR.

In that frame, things like additions to the music, art, programs, ''in the press'' and the likes would be announced. Here's an example: ''21. 10.2005. - Check out Abandonia PC Gamer press review in our ''In the press' section ---------- 23.10.2005. New music files added to our music section --------- 26.10.2005. New banners added for sites that want link to us ------- and so on.

What do you think about that?

It's a nice idea, but where would you put it? The main site is quite full as it is...

Well if you're considering a new layout... how about somehting like this:

Three parts of the screen with messages changing.
Upper part - latest update (newest game)
Middle part - last 10 updates (scrolling by)
Bottom part - other news related with the site (scroling by)

I'm sure that next layout would be even better if admins plan to introduce it. k:

Considering where to put it, if it's horizontal side to side scrolling marquee, it wouldn't take too much space in height. It could be positioned on the bottom of the page, just above ''Copyright 2005. Abandonia.com'' and under updates frame.

We always change the layout from time to time.

There will always be new features that need to be implemented, and unlike HOTU we don't just throw a new button in whereever we can find the space. We like to do things properly and efficiently while still relying heavyly on user-friendlyness.

I keep hearing rumors of this "new layout" from Tom and the other admins. Whenever we make a suggestion about the same page, that's almost the exact same response every single time. I wonder if it's their way of quieting and appeasing the masses while they are really thinking "Shut up and stop whining already, we have lives!" k:

Dictionary.com defines Life as "Human existence, relationships, or activity in general: real life; everyday life."

You exist as humans (though mainly just virtual as you are on the forum so often.) You engage in relationships (again, in the forum you have many people you converse with.) And you engage in activities in general (you post on the forum)

By this defintion and my brilliantly thinking brain, I deduce that you have a life, however miniscule it may be :bleh:

All in good fun lads k:
