Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

Well, I've basically not been here for a long time due to not making AMVs, but it's great to see this movement happening. ^__^ I don't think the site's reached anywhere its potential. I've had useful help from the past in the forum because technical stuff isn't my forte. So ...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

Okay, so as I read this, funds raised will determine whether we can afford to purchased additional servers dedicated to specific tasks, but those would possibly be cheaper models because they don't need as much in some areas. The amount of funds raised will determine the possible server or servers ...

Re: The Big Bounce: New Server Fund Raiser

I've stated this before, it's not hard to spec and price out a server. You can literally go to a website right now, add components to your cart and see how much it would cost including warranty. Additionally you can see how much rack space would cost, they have prices listed for this purpose. Telli...

If they can make goofy little collapsing animations for April Fool's Day, they can at least fix the menus.

Re: Regarding Future Website Redesign Plans

I wouldn't mind the site even with its current set-up if it was simplified with aim for ease of use and access,but guess its not possible with old ass code. I know nothing but web design or code but I've had it described to me as a house made up of sticks and duct tape. That sturdy, eh? I would hav...

Re: Regarding Future Website Redesign Plans

But to bring this back around to the original issue, do we have ANY answers whatsoever, or just more vague handwaving before the discussion gets turned back into another "lets talk about what we like about the org instead of the issues being brought up"?

Re: Regarding Future Website Redesign Plans

The administration needs to be more transparent and active in the community. Too often do I have people ask me who owns the website or who is in charge. Yes, there are links at the bottom of the forum but a list of names doesn't really tell you shit about what people actually do . But I thought for...

Re: Regarding Future Website Redesign Plans

I completely agree but, in my honest opinion, it wouldn't have mattered because we've never had anyone, except maybe David, who was really motivated to make something. Good leadership doesn't make a product if the people doing the actual work aren't motivated or skilled. But when the leadership ali...

Re: Regarding Future Website Redesign Plans

Scott, I see what you're saying, and I'm inclined to agree to a point. But a lot of it still (IMO) boils down to a complete lack of clear leadership that's willing to actually have people participate. If the administration isn't willing to actually drive changes, then all the good intentions in the ...

Re: Regarding Future Website Redesign Plans

A bunch of stuff... This seems to be a rehash of the same thing that was said four and a half years ago. In the eleven years I've been on this site, there has been talk after talk about redesigns, updates, overhauls, etc. But generalized vagaries are all that ever come about. What is the specific d...
