What annoys you?

I'm looking for small things - that will only take a few minutes for me to fix - that annoy you with this website.

Perhaps you don't like a certain colour being used on one of the pages, and want me to change it to a more universally-liked colour instead. Or maybe you just think that the chatroom needs a change as the look is getting a bit old.

Let me know! :)

I'd try to list something… But I find everything to be perfect :P. If I were to change anything. I'd change the red tool bars to blue :P. But that's me being selective toward favorite colors lol.

I'm open to a possible colour scheme change - though it wouldn't classify as something that would "only take a few minutes to fix" so I'm not going to do that just yet.

Okay, I can easily do that.

Is there anyone else that wants to comment on this as well? Keep the titles or get rid of them?

I think that the title's fine, but perhaps have a short post tree thing at the bottom of the Reply page, so you can look over the latest page of posts while you're typing a reply?

And perhaps a change of background colour, I personally do not like the white and beige-gray-ish colour, but that's just my own colour preference.

Sorry, that Anonymous post directly above me is mine, Firefox updated so it signed me out of Wikidot.

I think there are still a few things regarding moderation that I'm not too clear on (i.e. What I can do :P); would you be able to let me know some more of those? Everyone's so well behaved that there's not much I need to do anyway. ;)

And are you any further with letting me upload firmware?

No haven't done barely anything on the firmware front Proto. I know what I need to do, just need to find the time and the motivation to modify the template, then edit every single firmware page and update it to match the new system.

Actually… the Wikidot API might be able to automate most of it for me, so I'll look into doing it that way when I get a chance.

Which grey background are you referring to?

As for the page titles, I've had one person (titen96?) say that they want them removed, and someone else (ShadowValentine) say that they should stay. Further opinions?

Imo, a dark colour, perhaps dark red, maroon?

Search box made a bit bigger, text inside it made a bit bigger and given a new font (Calibri on Windows Vista/7 PCs, and Helvetica on all other operating systems). I even made the corners a bit rounded rather than just right angles. Looks better?

I cant select anything beside color that I would change. But nothing annoys me, besides the random loggout for no reason (no internet dc or anything that involves me switching anything) o_O;

My computer at home practically always remains logged in so I suspect it's got something to do with your browser settings not working too well with wikidot. In the feedback forum I posted a sticky thread with a link to another website for big reports … I forget what it's called and difficult to check on here… Could you try that and post the results back here?

I use Firefox. Should I switch to the newer google browser?

Firefox is perfectly fine, although personally I prefer Chrome. It's mostly a matter of personal choice. Safari is another good one.

Internet Explorer & Opera should definitely be avoided… at least for now. They're both behind the latest web standards. The IE9 beta looks promising so Internet Explorer might become a good browser again eventually… but it's not there yet.

This is the thread I was referring to earlier: PLEASE READ before reporting any bugs. The website is http://www.supportdetails.com/.

I'm interested in knowing what it says for you in these sections:

  • Operating System
  • Web Browser (you already mentioned it was Firefox, but not which version you're using)
  • Javascript
  • Cookies

Add a Quick-Post box. So you can type a comment in forums straight away and hit post… instead of hitting reply>typing>post.

Actually, it is possible - I've seen it done elsewhere not too long ago. I'm not sure how to do it myself — will need to look into it.

The only thing I dislike about this site is the lack of timestamps on posts. It makes it impossible to tell when a topic was started and how long it's been since the last post was made.

Well, me with a bandsaw. I didn't realize that there are actually timestamps on the posts until after I had posted that.

Unfortunately, Javascript is required to see them. I have Javascript disabled by default (NoScript), but had to enable it to post and that made the timestamps appear.

LOL, it automatically cut out the word even though I censored it. I must say that this site's extensive use of Javascript annoys me greatly.

This website is hosted by Wikidot.com and therefore I do not have the control that I would have if I was using my own server or editing the HTML directly. Sorry, but as much as I'd like to change it, the Javascript is here to stay for now :(

As for a "Quick Reply" feature as posted a while ago, above, that is possible now but is still being tested to make sure it is compatible with as many browsers as possible.
