the old myspace, the ORIGINAL myspace layout was gold, imho unbeatable.
I was a member of nexus and some punk music board before myspace and when myspace came along it took over as the only site I frequented asides from
deviant art, deviant arts ORIGINAL layout kicked ass also.
but then an annoying trend developed,
myspace old style
facebook old style "ok-ish" new style
deviant art old style
new style - don't use this site any more.
Erowid.org is a plain & simple non-flashy website which has barely changed (graphically) in 10 years and I absolutely love it. I would love it no
matter what it looked like if the content remained the same. That said I love the design too, straight to the point, no nonsense.
I a big fan of the pirate bay & h33t, tho more for reliability & credibility than looks, but that statement sets the trend for why I visit any
websites at all, content not looks. In fact, I specifically avoid graphic heavy sites to conserve the 12gb a month I get @ broadband speeds before
roll-back to dialup
, so that is something you should definitely be considering, the options you might have to keep the changes 'download light'
I get frustrated when I think about this graphics thing because currently the thing defining how my page appears graphically and aesthetically depends
on the wrap around banner. currently its displaying ATSnews08, before it was District9...next will be? is this one of the things that might be
changing? I hope you're not looking at potential advertising 'real estate' in all this...that would suck.
can't think of any other sites but I have a suggestions.
there are simple programs for determining someones feng shui qualities,
feng shui principles put into practice can influence an individuals mood etc IF they are in ANY way 'spiritual' or 'open'; while strong willed
controlling individuals will not be affected by feng shui. Because of that fact, I suggest you provide an OPTION
for users to type in their
birthdates & whatever (nothing dangerous) and in return they get the feng shui colours that relate to them, as the colour scheme of ATS when they log
So to summarise I'm suggesting custom colour schemes, html changes, which will be decided by the rules of feng shui, determined by the birthday data
entered into the feng shui colours application by the ATS user,
you could even make it a points thing, has to be earnt.
and then those who ARE interested in it, can choose to enable the option or whatev. The right colours, etc matched to an individual can create all
sorts of effects from being calmed down through to being more clear headed & studious, according to feng shui anyway!
P.S) changing colour schemes be a 'low size' addition no?
P.P.S) imho anaglyph is a bloody nightmare to get right, and this Real-D technology being used atm in 2009/2010 movies seems to be the solution, but
it would have to be widely available and a common household addition to be worth ATS's interest IMHO
