CALLING ALL MEMBERS.........OPINIONS WANTED
« on: January 09, 2019, 02:35:00 AM »

Now that the season is over and we a few months of down time before we gear up for the draft.....I thought it would be a good time to take this old tug into dry dock and give it a cosmetic face lift.

I'm not talking about the banner, but how this site is laid out. I've been thinking about it a lot since I came back. Everyone or everything I've seen and know needs a little makeover. Well... maybe not so much me.  ;D

Give it some thought and perhaps we can get our owner involved. He needs a good dose of Tib's about now.

So fire away with your thoughts and opinions, and let's get this place ready to rock for the 2019 season.

RAIDER ON MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND TO ALL RAIDER NATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you have any suggestions Tibs?  I'm not exactly sure what kind of changes your talking about. 

Are you talking about stickies?

Much of the layout here is dictated by the Simple Machine software that we use. What were you thinking of changing?

I'm talking about the way the place is laid out. For example....how many of you go outside the Raider grid? I'm guessing not many by the number of posts.

I'm thinking more along the lines of streamlining the layout, look, and functionality of this place.

When you log on......what would you like to see? I mean besides titties.  ;D

I understand that. But we can change/eliminate boards no one is interested in. Bring the forums we want under one umbrella when we log on.

To be fair, more and more people are posting non-Grid stuff (myself included) in the Grid, because it feels like any posts on the other boards will just get overlooked. They're like a waste-ground nobody really visits. Maybe more conversation will be generated if we have fewer areas.

I also think the 'RAIDERSLINKS' button is looking a bit dated. Peach was a regular here back in the day, but that's a long time ago now. I'm happy to keep the link, it just needs freshening up or maybe moved to a different area (if possible).

You're seeing it from the perspective of a moderator, something I've never been. The purpose of those subs is obviously to give folks a place to post off-topic crap...but how many of us do that anymore? We really just come here to talk Raiders.

Slo will have the final say, natch.

Of course. He stated he was disappointed in the lack of traffic. I'm thinking like a guy running the site.

I don't want to be anything other than what I am now however. A regular.

That said, Why the fuck wouldn't we want to make this place better suited to our likes?

Excellent observations sir. Why I think it Important to keep the links......a refresh would be welcome.

As for your other point, that is also my thinking. It would generate more dialog.

Thank you for your thoughts.

Anymore ideas members?

I can live with just about anything. I remember back when the Merc had a forum where everything was out in one thread. If you missed a couple days there would be 20 pages to scroll through and the topics ranged from Raiders to babes to movies to politics.

Right now, I still go to some of the other sub forums, but there usually isn't a lot of fresh conversations, so the grid is where it's at.

I think we put our finger on it in the birthday thread. We are all a bunch of old motherfuckers. We're not impressed with the fancy stuff, we like things that are easy to find and to work. I don't need a lot of options, just clean and simple.
