If you've been here since the beginning (and I know a couple of you have) you've probably noticed that I've been almost constantly tweaking the look of the Ectozone Message Board.
I installed the codes for the link bars at the top and side (just like in the Ectozone key pages) as soon as I got the board.
Probably the next most obvious change is the reduction in the font size. Personally, I liked the smaller font--it ends up making the board look more like one of the "better" board programs like PHPBB (ie GBCentral) or Invision (Ie GBI)
I've also installed modifications so that Administrators (me) display names show up in Red, Global Moderators in blue, and Moderators (whenever I promote any) in Green.
I even experimented with a different way of displaying the mini-profile in posts, but it just didn't look as good as it did on Proboards Support 2
Some smaller features you may or may not have noticed:
No more "Last Edit" tags. I hate those.
A pop-up box when you have new Personal Messages.
The list of Moderators for each board does not appear on the main page (since right now there aren't any board-specific Mods anyway)
And a tiny change that keeps the thread titles from showing up under the main board title.
I'll use this thread to keep things updated on changes to the board (the big one will be the upcoming upgrade to Proboards Version 4 sometime this fall).
Well you know I love your stuff, Fritz, but as I finally got around to registering on this board I might as well say it again here. Frankly all of the effort you've put in to making it look nice is wasted on me - I am not a visual artistic-type person and I probably haven't even noticed any of the changes you've made to this place...
But now that I've looked closely I can see that it's all very nice.
Ideas for improving the Ectozone... hmm... a new amusing limerick every time you log in? Other than that it's hard to see how this place could get any better. (Do I suck up to you or what??)
