Okay, I need some of you folks to play around with the new website.

I'm aware it looks like trash, spare me. :)

Please provide feedback of any kind.

"I like it because ..."
"I dislike it because ..."

Those are the type of comments I'm looking for here.


Pay no attention to the URL's name, it's simply a placeholder, that is all.
http://silentshouting.com <-- register and have fun.

My first comments:
1. Page loading seems slow.
2. Is "Thanks" the replacement for applause? I know this is one thing you're not a particular fan of, Kevin, but I'm one of those applause whores. And i never did figure out how you give/get kudos. :)
3. I've never been much of a fan for "vote up/down", even though I know its sort of become a default everywhere. Put this down as a "dislike". Goddamn Facebook/Twitterverse shit.
4. Are you going to have more text-editing boxes like this one? Emoticons? For the computer idiot like me, these are a godsend.
None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

i like that the chat doesn't need it's own window (!)

99% of the time I would open chat, and "x" out of PH.

saves me some clickin.

1 - Initial page loading was slow ... but after the queries and what not have cached, it loads as fast as this one. I'm hoping others notice the trend as well.

2 - I like the Applause feature here, not sure why you say otherwise. I am the one who "created" it after all.

3 - Like/Dislike a post. This concept will stay, however, I'll be modifying it a bit.

4 - There are several text editors available to the members of the site. You can actually choose which editor you want, TinyMCE, BBCode, etc. You can even post HTML (your Table's you asked about).


The software comes with a points system already. I believe the points are basted on posts Thanked and how many posts. I'm not sure, but it's a system I'm confident I can modify to be suitable.




You can thank any post and each thank gives the member a point(s).

There's also points based on posts too.

That stuff I haven't completely hammered out just yet.

I know the look of the site is terrible, I haven't worked on that yet. I'm more interested in feedback on the features of the site and opinions on them.


There is a ShoutBox, but I don't like it, so I'll be creating that myself. The only other option for a ShoutBox is paying $20 for one, and that will not happen. I have daughters to blow money away on, not a hobby. :)

Frankly the image manager sucks.

Inserting an image to a post is beyond difficult.

Too much white background. The more I play around there the less I like. Not permitted to start image album.

Hmm, interesting. Can you tell me which editor you are using?
Click HERE and you'll see toward the bottom which text editor you're using. There's about 7 I think.

Wade, I think the speed has picked up. I'm experiencing instant page loads as I bounce back an forth working on image displaying and editing the settings.

Feel free to use whichever name you want. The posts and members are going to all be wiped out when the data merge is done. That's FAR into the future though, like MONTHS at the least.

I just need members to come test things out, tell me what's not working, what is working, how to improve features ... things like that. More traffic, the better.

What happened? I know that is a custom graphic, but why do you say the site sucks? I need more effective feedback please.

Jim, I think I accidently deleted your account.

There's a registration for the core site and one for the forums, however, you the member only registers once. I'm trying to figure out how to import all users. I created a test and it failed and when I deleted it, it took yours out too. Sorry.

Yeah sorry... this new database structure is insane. The current database has one table for users, this new setup there's about 9 and I'm having trouble pegging the proper order here. I'm only going to carry over several fields and throw null's in the rest and whatever else. So, some folks will have to update things like their password, signature, etc...

name
email
post count
points
signature
joined date

will be carried over if i get my way
