Here is a side by side comparison, mostly to scale.  The new layout is larger, and takes up more of the screen, and is easier to read.

I appreciate the feedback.  Especially yours Chimera.  I am all too aware that people are resistant to change, and the older they are, the more resistant they are.  Thats one reason the opnly changes in that mockup were 1. The New "NukeWorker" title at the top, 2. a wider middle space, and then 2 changes to the jobs section, adding the logo, and a second line of location data.

You made all those changes????  Wow!  I guess I should start paying attention.

Seriously, I like the new masthead and the formatting for the "Jobs" section.  It offers a cleaner presentation of the information contained in that section.

On an equally arbitrary note . . . if'n yas makes a change that I dont like, I'll be sure to holler. ;D

Ok, attached is the proposed new news format, with One line for the title, and a few lines of body.

Anything that could come up in a thread.

For example, if Macgyver and I bet on an SEC game or Marlin and I bet on an event outcome.

Just an idea.

Another forum that I frequent (www.irishenvy.com) has this option and it is used frequently.

After I update the forum software, bring the idea up again.

That would make them meaningless.

READ THIS CAREFULLY

The attached mock up is not actually intended to be implemented, its just a sample of how we could change things (you know, give you theme options) with the new design.  So don't freak out, this isn't actually going to happen. (At least not yet ;) )

Click on the little picture below for a larger version.  I didn't embed the Larger version in the message because I know even with 30 point font, people won't read the text, and will fly off the handle.

I do like the banner ad below the site name masthead, among other things.

Or maybe we could use them like a Karma bomb...take 20 of my points and reduce someone else's points by 20?  [Flamer]

You know Mike, every 26.7979101 lunar cycles since August 2001 you seem to go through this urge to do something with the look and feel of the place,...

It's like my mother used to do with the furniture when I was a kid,...

You know if you keep changing and somebody goes blind they won't be able to feel their way around because it'll be all discombobulated,...

I'm just saying,...
                         

been there, dun that,... the doormat to hell does not read "welcome", the doormat to hell reads "it's just business"

I've often said that the Facility info section isn't up to my expectation and desires.  I made a mockup today that I think I like.  It's attached.

Basically it has a nice picture, and general information at the top, a blurb about the site below that, then the jobs available, news feed, then all the statistical info/links.

It's a nice clean simple look.

Yup.

I'm not moving the furnature, I'm just changing the covering on the couch.  Everythign will still be in the same place.  Basically, I'm just removing the dull round edges and replacing them with sharp pointy edges.

Much cleaner I noticed that sometimes the white text in the rounded areas disappeared on the edges, this is better.

If you want to check out the new test index page, its found here:

http://www.nukeworker.com/index2.php

It's a work in progress, so it's only for voyeurs, not voyagers.

I'm as bad as the rest of you.  I couldn't stand the 'change' of removing my soft round corners.  So they stay.  I have the home page wider now.

Expect some more tinkering over the next few days.

I think I'm about done for the evening.  I'll clean up the big "NukeWorker" text image tomorrow.  The image editing software crashed on me when i tried to save it, and I'm too tired to re-do the work tonight.  I'm happy with the changes that were and were not made.

I just re-jiggered the news feed, it should have more relevant news feeds.  Basically, I told it to ignore all the war mongering stuff.  Let me know if you miss it. ;)

Logos in the job section seem a little large and overwhelm the print. Did you just change the format in the news feed or are the search criteria new too?

Noted.

I'm currently working with this section.  I currently its the same criteria, just with new formatting.  After I get the formatting down, I may try working on the criteria again.  I think I have a new trick.

As far as the news formatting goes, I'm still tweaking it, but what do you think of the formatting there so far?
