* 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.
I checked in IE8 and Firefox 3 about this and I couldn't find how it is doing that. Really weird how they will stay that way even after you forcefully reload.
* The Quick Jump menu is a bit difficult to use. Perhaps the links should be spaced out or on separate lines?
They should be appearing on separate lines already. I checked in IE8 and Firefox 3 again and they both show up on their own lines for me. Anybody else having this issue? I checked the CSS and it should be valid so I don't know if I might have put something down wrong, but I'll check it tonight more thoroughly. I also checked the HTML and couldn't find any errors apart from duplicate ids and not providing alt tags for images. But I'll check that later tonight as well.
* What are the icons at the bottom of the thread page for?
Social media icons so people can link to the thread in facebook, myspace, whatever. I figure the code is easy to get from those sites and any way to get other people over to RG would be good.
* We should probably have cancel/X buttons for the forum post slideout panels, along with a preview and character count?
I was thinking about that after I had posted the link to the pages and am gonna start work on that this week. Just gotta plan a bit on how I want it laid out.
* 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.
Yes, that is what I was planning. This why people can link to specific posts if they want to without them being very obvious in the layout.

Is this an archived quote from sneepio ? looks familiar
No, it's just my filler text from when I had that stupid front page post on all my other layouts. This is just for random forum quotes though.
also is the forums being called community ? if so.. I don't like it *angry faic*
I suppose I can change the name back to forums if you guys would prefer.

- Centering the entire container, having a website to the left is just seems like a pain in the ass.
Haha, thats what I kind of liked about this layout; that it didn't have the plain Jane normal centered layout. But again, pretty simple fix if you guys prefer.
- I'm a big fan of the layout ver. 5.2, maybe we can move towards that? It seems more professional than indie than ver. 7. (again, IMO)
I suppose we could. I'd have to dig on my laptop to find that old file though, haha.
Also, if you don't mind me playing around with your source code. I work professionally in Marketing & Communications as a branding and visual manager, so maybe make it a bit easier on the eyes?
I'm just finding that the Arial Black and Lime on Gray is visually hard on the eyes.
Please do. If you want to make some tweeks and rewrite sections or whatever, that would be great!
I can take care of hosting/domain in the near future (Either mid or end of December... which ever pay allows a little more leeway with the bills lol)
I would certainly contribute some as well.
Would the hatchling plan be enough?
Whatever plan you think would be enough, haha. When i used their compare all plans thing they all seemed to be about the same.

Just a note:
When you open up a register, search or login box, they'll stay open until you close them.
So you can have all three open at a time. I'm trying to fix that problem.
Yeah, that's an issue I got pretty irritated with and just said screw it to and started to work on the forum section page. You could probably tell from the name of the threads in there.
Also, if you change .DropBox function to .Toggle, it'll be a small fix for the boxes so they stop moving all the way to the left when you close them.
See, I only had that problem in IE8 and didn't have any idea how to resolve that problem. I can change it to .Toggle but it will have to fade away, it can't do the drop out effect thing. Simply because the drop out effect isn't compatible with the toggle function but I can change that; simple fix.

Just watch out for the monthly pricing when comparing plans, since the cheapest rates require multi-year agreements.
Even if this plan does require us to sign up for multiple years I can carry most, if not all of the cost for multiple years of hosting.
