I tried to login as ShittyKitty and I got a big fat failure as well.

We'll just try to get the forum up and running first (the main page URL will redirect to the forum) and see where we can go from there. I make absolutely zero promises, but if QF can get me what I need, we might see the beginnings of a new Retrogade by the middle of the month (MIGHT MIGHT MIGHT MIGHT MIGHT, I can't stress that enough!)
I think I've got most everything complete, it just a few finishing touches, I can have them done before the end of the weekend. For the "Post a Reply" pages did you prefer that they be on a separate page or would you care if a script.aculo.us effect would reveal a "Post a Reply" box on the same page as the thread itself? Perhaps have a lightbox come up with the post page? Did you get a chance to look at the preliminarily layouts I put up on DA? Anything you would like clarification or changes on? Obviously I have some things on the layout which we don't need to have up and running right away, I was just thinking about the future.

I've been working off of the Forum Prelims image that you posted at http://quikfox.deviantart.com/art/New-Re troGade-Forum-Prelim-188083787 I don't have any huge questions yet, anything that I'm unsure about can wait until later. For the reply posting, I'd personally like a slide-out reply box. For creating a new topic, though, I'm not sure how you'll want to implement that.

So far, I've got a very basic registration page, profile page, and posting page. Yay!

...and I'm not sure why you people couldn't log in, it works just fine for me...*shrug*...

I was thinking that we'd use the same premise as the reply posting for the new topic postings; just a simple slide out box at the top of each forum category. I just figured it would cut down on pages and then you can actually review the threads and posts already existing in case you want to quote something to make reference to an existing thread. Plus it'll beat having to wait for the posting page to load.

Great. You've got some very nice progress going along there. I'm working to be mad to get the layouts down quickly. Having trouble with the larger text though, for me it doesn't look like the text is being displayed properly. It doesn't look like anti-aliasing is on, I see some small jagged edges on the text. So I'm just working on that and I should be set.

I just chose a different font and I feel that it looks much better. So the headers will have a different font from what is displayed in the prelims.

Damnit. Third! I get the bronze medal.

Looking good so far. I made a point to register SeeD419 AND SeeD without the numbers, which NG has had taken since 99 (inactive, and utterly useless account)

I suppose I may have to re-register those, but w/e. Good progress at least.

BBCode-style markups are online, and the quoting system actually includes original post info now. Also, the posts and topics are correctly sorted.

Wow, this and the alpha version of the site I wasn't expecting. I have some hopes for Retrogade after all.

I've got a basic forum search page up and running: http://retrogade.jfsoftware.com/forum/se arch You can also get to that page by clicking on a user's post count. I think I'm done for today, I'll do some more work on Monday (probably won't do any over the weekends, since my test environment is on my work machine)

So far you've made massive progress so I don't blame you for stopping. I'll have the layouts completed by the end of the weekend!

By the by, the mod tools work just fine.

Yeah, I haven't written the ban tools yet. I've also got a system set up so that deleted posts and topics can be viewed and undeleted later on, so it'll be easy to undo any mistakes. :-D

Hey guys,

ShittyKitty, you are fucking awesome. I should be checking back more often, I didn't think we'd be working to get this off the ground. So my skills stand in the middle of both Quik and ShittyKitty. I work with html, css, and javascript, however when it comes to the database and php, not so much. So I guess this is where SK would come into play.

You guys can contact me at dan@coffeepowered.ca from now on. I'll keep checking in from time to time.

Cheers guys

That's because you don't know the lengths my harassment can reach

skills

you guys need to have a big aim orgy and figure shit out

so far I got this figured

SK guy who writes all the boring coding stuff
QF guy who makes cool looking things
SeeD guy who will spam a lot in the future
Rocket guy who has skills but they need to be utilized
Bahamut guy who is a mod on NG so he's cool and stuff
LethalDosage guy who spams this topic so people pay attention to it aka DANAAAA FLAVVVVV

guy who makes cool looking stuff, make me a dana flav picture pronto

also, all you other people hiding in the shadows stop playing with yourselves for a moment so you can post about your excitement - I know you're watching @_@

I've actually been lurking around this thread for a long time. I joined RG right before it closed, so I'm glad to see that there's been lots of progress on getting the site back up. :)

Sure, I'd be interested in testing out a few pages. Your designs of the new RG layout look very nice!

You guys should pm or post your email address so I can send you a zip file of the pages. I'd put them up on a geocities or something like that but I can't remember my password for any of those free hosting sites.

Very nice! Here's a few notes I've made:

* The top and bottom nav links and affiliate links get kinda weird after you click on any link on the page (they turn green and clump together) and they stay that way even if you go back or forcefully reload.
* The Quick Jump menu is a bit difficult to use. Perhaps the links should be spaced out or on separate lines?
* What are the icons at the bottom of the thread page for?
* We should probably have cancel/X buttons for the forum post slideout panels, along with a preview and character count?
* I'm assuming the gray numbers on the thread page for the topic and each post are for the topic and post ID numbers? At least, that's how I've been implementing them in the test platform.

Send me the final layouts when you're satisfied with them, and I'll hook everything together. We also need to sort out the hosting and domain name stuff in the near future. My email's joshua70448 [at] gmail [dot] com.
