A major goal for this initial update was to help streamline where discussions take place.
I'll think on / discuss with the other moderators the possibility of further breakdown within a subsection.

As far as CR Points go, I'm brainstorming ways to use these! :)


Sounds good, thanks. I hope the sub categories goes up.

Anyhow, regarding CR points. You said you were brainstorming ideas. May I add a idea? (Sorry if I go a bit off topic )

If you look at Valve and their Steam gaming platform then they've got a system called Steam trading cards. You get More Steam trading cards by playing more games on their service and they can be used to trade in for more features such as backgrounds badges and other stuff that in turn gives your account a higher status.

I realize that it's impossible to port over Steams system to CR from group up since, well... Steam and CR are to entirely diff services and also work in entirely diff ways. However, I think if would be nice to see some sort of use for them such as trading them to unlocking a more in deapth profile customization tool that'll make it easier to personalize your profile. Or maybe something entirely diff like getting to the option to trade them into get a exclusive art print (that you can print out) from your favorite manga or anime.

I have a few other ideas of what may be possible to do with CR points, just send me a PM and I'll come up with some other ideas.

yeah.....

contest-hime stuff popping up all over my "general" quick link just threw me.. O.o

part of me wishes to cry a lil about the changes, but then again, it might also make a particular "place" resident more likely to interact with some of the other stuffs.

I wouldn't mind just some fixing of the CSS and such to the profiles. Getting my images to kinda/sorta work took a lot more work than not. (for some reason they don't insert the images into the CSS in a scalable fashion so it fills the screen regardless of the screen res. (here's a bajillion ways to do it: http://css-tricks.com/perfect-full-page-background-image/ )

and of course, everyone complains about the player... >.>

Why did you quote me? Wouldn't it be better to quote Bjaker if you want to give feedback!?!

Also, remaking a web player with working DRM can be a really demanding job. I'm not saying that this one is bad. However it's long from unusable. Btw, CSS doesn't nesseserly make the code run better when you compile it with other HTML code.

Oh wow.. I quoted you because I was going to say something about the CR points but went totally tangent there instead.

Anyhow, DRM player? I'm not sure what DRM is there other than the overlay of "this is streamed for X" bit of text that appears from time to time, so I'm not sure. I'm semicurious how it holds up to a few different ripping programs, just to test the security, but yeah.

As for the CSS bit, This may be true of some programming, but CSS are just "rules" that are typically shorthand for code. HTML is typically your framework. They're markup languages, so typically they're just dealing with aesthetics unless you're trying to do some crazy stuff, and even then it's probably going to be trying to code something in via javascript, PHP, etc. Looking at the profiles, it might need some PHP code (or similar), but the page display itself isn't super complicated and in fact, most of the framework of the site, outside of the players, looks like it could have been coded or freeware since 2004 or so. The store even seems a bit old.

Plus they do have some auto resizing code in there, it just forces less and less of your background to show.. Which is the problem. The image itself should resize than just cutting off. (especially since they're requesting an overly large BG width size (1600px min).

and it's not just buggy there. Forum pictures should be scaled down to at least fit the width of the page, as well as text should autowrap rather than having this be ok....

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

(oh yeah. and quote this to see what happens when all those o's get put into a quote. It should do the wrapping I mention. I know that images get the resizing for it.



I think that a bigger problem might be that they're running on just really old software which they're piecing bits together and doing repairs to rather than giving the whole site a massive overall and redesign with better code.
