We are currently working on "the new mess.be", as usual we do care about your suggestions. Please post them in this topic, but we cant promise that we will actually use them.

Some notes for posting in this topic.

1) Donít ask things about:
- the clogged menu structure
- hot linking pages
- frames frames ... frames
- the amount of java scripts
- ignoring W3 standards
- the GUI, because this is going to be orange, period
- the ads stay

2) Some things you donít have to ask about, because Ill answer them right now:
- There will be a official RSS feed
- The display picture / emoticon section will get a make over, and will run at rocket speed
- Some people suggested to make profile pages, this wont happen because mess already has more traffic then New York on a Monday morning ...

3) Offtopic posts will be removed,

I may have posted this in nother forum, and it may already be going ahead, but I think it would be nice to have the Backgrounds section of the site up and running. I don't think many people like the bar you get down the side, so it would be pretty good to get rid of that. And I definetly know i've posted this before, but what if some people off the Graphics Team, or people who can work graphics programs well, make tutorials on how to use these programs like, Gimp, Photoshop and Paintshop. Also people could show how they actually made some of their graphics. Thats all the ideas I have for now. msn_happy.gif

noreply.gif TashaJ ->

those tutorials are a great idea, as long as they are related to messenger,

noreply.gif Stigmata ->

- with profile pages I meant something like http://members.mess.be/stigmata with info about you on it
- All news posts will be archived separately (and can be linked to)
- The exit blog will not return, dwergs started a separate blog at www.dwergs.com
- Popups will remain, because mess.be costs money, lots o' bling,

In what way could they be related to messenger? Could it be like, it shows you how to make a display picture or something? I was thinking more along the lines of showing you how to make sigs and avatars for the forums, and how to make animation, and stuff, that would help people generally...

personally i like the iframe, i like being able to scroll through the news while the links are still readily available on the left, maybe you can have a "top" button, like on the forum, one that takes you to the top of the page

Suggestions:
  • Page having a staff list maybe...That includes the forums.
  • Add some backgrounds to mess.be! We can't wait! msn_cool.gif
  • Create a mess.be login script that is compatiable with the forums (Meaning that you can upload, and do other stuff if you have a mess.be forum account). If not, Just create a login script for mess.be only so people can download and guests can't...etc..Get the point?
  • Ability to let messers add downs to download area with a upload account and get it reviewed by a staff member instead of emailing Dwergs or submitting news to get it added.
  • HOT! Mess.be Christmas Style! user posted image
  • Mess.be Newsletter Signup!!! (Sign up and get emailed the latest additions, changes, etc...that happens on mess.be + mess.be forums! msn_happy.gif
  • Email this post! (Add "Email this post to someone" at Dwergs post ^_^).
  • Able to add comments by Mess.be members only to news posts with NO HTML, right Zero1? msn_tongue.gif (Zero1 told me how people were trying to create exploits and crap).
  • Statistics - How many uniquie hits mess.be hot, How many hits today, my IP, etc..
  • Polls - Add a mess.be poll section! (I think there is one already but does it get updated msn_confused.gif?
  • Category for news - Messenger news, Microsoft, etc....
  • This MIGHT sound dumb but mess.be blogs? msn_dunno.gif
That's it for now! msn_happy.gif

- Staff list will be on it
- Background section will be availible too
- Forum login script will follow later on, not in the first release
- Download review section wont be done, because we allready have the forum for reviews,
- Admins allready can post news, but we want moderators / newsscouts to be able to post news (with activation from staff members)
- X-mass ? Wont be done before X-mass pp.gif
- Will return on the news letter thing, because alerts can do basicly the same
- There will not be a comment section, we`ve got the forums for comments,
- We allready monitor statistics, but keep those a little bit hidden more or less, because most counters arnt acurate
- Polls, maybe those will return, lets start a poll about it...
- News will be searchable, but not categorized
- Just like i told earlier in this post, blogs will be seperate from the site,

That's good. Quick question tho man ;-).

How long would it take? It takes Dwergs like 24 hours to check his email. Also, Will this show something like:

XeroCool says:
Msn Messenger 8.0 is fake!

or will it say something like:
timothy says:
MSN messenger 8.0 is fake!

Submitted by staff member: XeroCool

or something like that? (That was a example)

Another thing about this thread; ads WILL remain. As Timothy said, this site does cost quite a lot to run. If you want to help keep mess.be going, please click those ads.

- The forum is a place for people to leave messages. Shoutboxes are not really suitable, especially on the main page. Imagine the amount of queries the DB server will have to deal with for every single hit we get. It will also be abused.

- Site-Forum integration, I'm not sure, I think it will be too much strain on the server but see what Timothy says about it.

another suggestion:

Mess.be should set up a paypal account! Alot of people wanted to donate money but Mess.be has no paypal account! This would probaly disable some ads if mess.be got some $$$, eh?...

make mess not so orange, i think its bad in taste. dont have too much ad's, thank god for firefox! replace the naviation of the site, it looks so "back in the 80's". It seems way too cluttered. Come to think of it, make a subscription service. Say for eg Tom gives you $20 donation, for that they get access without advertising, a nice legit revenue raiser. The download system i really dont like, i'd like a script like download.com uses, its so easy to navigate and search. And remove legacy programs, there isnt much use for them now these days. That is all msn_sleepy.gif

I agree with doggie, just as long as the damn new site is 1000% less cluttered and is a hell of a lot better to navigate (and none of that gay hotlinking ****; it royally sucks for linking friends)!
