keep the sidebar.... its easier.... andddd MAKE THE IRC CHAN MORE OBVIOS SO PEOPLE KNOW IT EXISTS msn_tongue.gif you should see a threat i posted a while ago with all my suggestions.... oooh, this one
http://forum.mess.be/index.php?showtopic=293&hl=
some dont apply now tho...
oh, and lastly, FIX ALL THE DOWNLOAD LINKS, for the love of god.... its so annoying seeing something, and it doesnt work.... it wouldnt take long for someone to just check all of them... id do it myself if you wanted me to msn_happy.gif but i guess youd want a mod to msn_happy.gif

and get rid of the popups.... theyre so annoying, esp the spleak one that "only comes up once" but somehow manages to popup everytime, hence my need to use ff's popup blocker.... cos if you then wanna put something important in a popup, no-one will be able to read it msn_tongue.gif i dont wanna have to close something every time i visit

Keep the Orange. It maes mess.be loads different from alot of other websites. (I haven't seen another orange site anywhere.) Maybe you should have an ibar down the side of the page like on this website: Clicky (skip the intro to see what I mean. Or watch it if you want. pp.gif .no advertising meant.) That looks good, and is easy to navigate.

Also, I am working on the tutorilas for The GIMP, but I still haven't thought of a way to relate them to messenger. msn_thinking.gif Has someone got any ideas?

-[background, text, animation...]
-[effect, style..]

Said before and i say it again :

Lite version of the main page, with maybe just the news and some text ads to support it..

And, have more universal newsposters, time-zones do matter.

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

from what i see, it is so much easyer to navigate . and the 'gay' hotlinking has been removed.

mess.be = orange, fact, wont change, never but its done even more subtile then the forum its orange look.

just a little note on people who dont like the hotlinking, the new system does not use frames anymore, so the entire layout is loaded on the page, thanks to this we can disable hotlinking and still show the entire site as it`s supposed to be (the hotlinking was used because a lot of sites started to link to our download frames from their site,)

Why not set the server's timezone to 0GMT (standard zone everyone else is based off of in Greenwhich) and everyone's own timesetting can change on its own?

I think this is a great idea.

Also, if you are going to have the MSN Messenger chat window images surrounding the banner like the current one, you can change them from blue to orange since MSN Messenger chat windows have been colourable (word?) for ages now.

Don't use green text with red links like the current layout because people with certain types of colour blindedness (word?) can't tell the difference between red and green.

Don't put in useless links:

The majority of them don't work.

Finally, you knew i'd ask: Where are the damn screenshots? msn_tongue.gif

Its in a very early stage and I assume Tim doesn't want people seeing the early attempts as it may not provide a realistic view for the final site.

Oh, will it be (fully) Firefox compatible?

No, i meant that : Have more news reporters/posters worldwide to get the news earlier than other places, like say something that happens at 4am in belgium could be reported easily for universal vistors

Just because something is standards compliant doesn't mean it will work fine in any browser. Also for XHTML strict you can't use the target attribute on links, which is what I assume mess.be will do with external sites - you would have to use some sort of javascript to do this.

I for one am looking forward the new site, and thank god that it is going to be orange! The orange sets this place out from the others. It's an orange design that works and looks awesome.

I think it would be awesome if you guys did actually categorise news. Maybe not the old stuff, but new stuff. It would make it alot easier just to view the news of say, emotion and DP database updates without viewing other news.
