I look forward to the redesign - hopefully besides a different look there'll be some changes to the voting controls and maybe some improvement on weeding out and disabling problematic users. This place needs to find a new equilibrium again , and I hope the redesign brings some life back to the place.
As for me, I have my work cut out. My guess is that all of my stat-pulling programs (which rely on specific HTML layouts on specific page types to extract data) will go nuts and probably convulse until the new site settles in and I get to examine the new user stat pages - and possibly new levels and/or new ranks. Maybe the redesign will have it's own stat pages, which would render my satellite site (NGLOGS) obsolete. I won't know until Monday. I know I'll be coding Monday night to get everything back in sync ASAP.
Now, if Tom or one of the developers would have pity on my programming soul and PM me with the stat (level / rank) changes (if any) and maybe the generated HTML for a user stat page before Monday, I might be able to get a jump on the NGLOGs fixes a little earlier. Please?!?!
If not, I guess I'll just have to wait and see like everyone else.
Looking forward to the changes - been a long time coming!
