Potential Downtime

salaam

The hosting providers sent me an email letting me know they plan on upgrading their software... there is a potential that the site may not be available for a few hours between now and a couple of days.

Salaam

Nothing will get lost will it?

Nothing should get lost.

But then again I have not made a backup in over a month... is that trying to tempt fate?

If we loose something on here... its really no big deal.

slow? SLOW?!?!

A snail could move faster!

A few days ago, I was gonna start a topic called "I HATE THIS SITE", but then thought people may take that for negativity.

Lol.

Let's see what happens... Biggrin

Now, that's the spirit.

On a a more positive note, I have real goodies planned for the *near* future.

How near? Well for the last 6 or so weeks I have thought "Today is the day". Just a lack of inspiration for the final touches has made me fail miserably. And it become "Today is the day they nearly saw ..."

(To get the right feel for that, think think Pirates of the Caribbean and "Today is the day you almost caught Captain jack Sparrow"/"Today is the day Captain Jack Sparrow almost got away".)

Well if your lacking inspiration, then why dont you ask someone for help?

But then there is the issue of too many chefs in the kitchen...

Unfortunately the bulk of the initial work is a one man show. Once that is done, others can chip in.

Oh, and I hope y'all like orange:

As you can see, most of that is still grey... help with colours will be helpful. I think.

How come it says you've been a member since 13th Feb this year yet the post is on 24th July 2005?

It's a conspiracy I tells ya!

Don't just do something! Stand there.

And another update:

Then comes the hard part. Smile

It looks good but could you add a 'private messages' tab on the left with the other tabs? One of the things I like about this site is that your inbox is easily accessible; some sites you have to look hard to find it.

Gentleness and kindness were never a part of anything except that it made it beautiful, and harshness was never a part of anything except that it made it ugly.

Through cheating, stealing, and lying, one may get required results but finally one becomes

Looks good.

I like the whole sunset orange thing going on.

PM me the url and ill test-drive the shizzer out of it.

Mashallah it looks very nice.

The media, government, tried to blow us, but they can't out the flame, or doubt the name.

thanks for the positive feedback.

@ Dawud - that is simple to do - I want the heavy lifitng to be out of the way first. I may even put it in the primary links just under the logo.. depends on how many there are and whether it is crowding things out or not.

It's not online yet... I have set up a webserver on my PC - which is only active when I am using it.

If everything goes ok, inshallah, things will be going forward today. But who am I kidding? I have been telling myself that for weeks now. (kept it on the quiet as I wanted it to be a shock - wake up one morning and everything is different. Unfortunately I let myself down yesterday by giving the game away. Then thought "the hell with it" and posted screenshots.)

What does the 'Administer' button do? Its on the screenshot on the left. And what does 'Creat content' mean? Maybe they should be renamed.

Even if you put it through today at midnight i'll still be surprised tomorrow. Dramatic changes are always surprising... even if we're expecting them.

Administer will only ever be seen by me. It lets me erm... administer things.

Create content takes you to an options page with options such as "Create forum topic, create poll" etc etc. Not decided what i will do with this yet. Most people will probably not see it.

And now the bad news. I have managed to add a small margin/padding/border/something somewhere in the css since yesterday which breaks a lot of things. Spent the last couple of hours tracking it down, but well, I am stumped.

Do you not have a backup?

Run a search under the CSS document and the HTML file.

No backup.

Done a search, compared terms, looked at EVERY SINGLE class that has any height element at all...

The Lover is ever drunk with love;
He is free, he is mad,
He dances with ecstasy and delight.

Caught by our own thoughts,
We worry about every little thing,
But once we get drunk on that love,
Whatever will be, will be.

I like the orange.. it makes it look.. ermmm .. different Biggrin

Admin you've been busy... :shock: Smile

Seriously, it looks good.

I think the orange looks ok.

But I don't particularly like the black strip under it. It looks a bit too erm striking and bold, very border-ish. What about a red instead, it might look better with the orange?

The blue of the comment boxes looks alright... don't know what other colour might look good, what about a grey colour? Along with that beige colour at the side in the 2nd pic. Will all the comment boxes be the same colour/shade? I think they need to be separated in some way.

currently all the comment boxes are blue (they were grey, but I had a little too much of that). It can be looked into, as can the colour of that bar (the black does draw attention though...).

EDIT - just had a check - red is way-too-bright as in eyes-train-bright.

I've been told the current style is too drab/boring, so I aimed for the opposite, but still keep ti stylish. The top is bright, stand-outy, the rest is more subdued.

Ofcourse the new style will be able to be refined when in use...

Nah i like it, except for the colour and please try not it to look like the freefootball.org forum.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane, by those who couldn't hear the music...
