Having all that expanded would take up too much space IMO.See with tabbed pages I can only have one tab open at a time (unless the page is cut off into multiple tabs, like a seperate one for each section... similar to linux desktops), I'd rather have expandable menus as we have now
agreed about the multiple tabs thing, it would just get too unwieldy, just leave it as is. or perhaps a hybrid of the two.
See the thing I see is the way I see it (and the way things are set up now), I mostly use the journal system so I have the 'my account' menu open, every so often I search for amvs and I vainly like to look at my previous ops given from time to time. I'm just saying if all the menus were seperated in tabs that dominate the entire screen than how could I go from one section to the next in just one click? Not only that, but what if I don't remember that the 'ops given' link is in the fans section, and I go looking for it in community or something else. This just adds to my downtime, I'm just saying tabs would just be HORRIBLE and make me spend 3x as much time going from section to section in this stupid place.
So what would we do? put multiple tabs on the page? #1 I don't think I'd like the way it would look BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY #2 (and this is a current 'problem', what if there's some new epic interview that I might be interested BUT I never look there any more because it hasn't changed for 5 years! What's gonna tell me to open up all of the tabs/ menus to check these things that RARELY change?
Maybe a new notice? IMHO this section SHOULDN'T be collapsible :/ I don't really like it though, it can get too messy, it's just text on a page, it can get crowded (wall of text) and it's non-interactive. What I'm trying to get at is NEW UPDATED sections should be highlighted in a notification type deal, BUT the 'notice' section alltogether needs to change. Those aren't 'notices' their announcements! Notices are interactive messages that tell you what changed since your last visit they dont just sit there like stoic text on the page, this doesn't suite my purpose! If changed this announcement section SHOULD be collabsible, but the NOTICE section should not. Maybe it should be more at the bottom of the page though, like the other interactive sections (your ops, qc's, alerts, new vid and so on)

I was talking to NME and he suggested maybe using green as the primary color in the design. I agree with this.the aesthetics is just an afterthought I'm playing with. The color scheme can be changed easily in the css at any time. I just used Orange and Blue because it's similar to the current site. I think the org would look good with some pastels/lights because those are the types of colors common in anime. I think that's why we have the current pinkish-orange in the header. But if you have ideas, maybe discuss them in the Design thread (what do you think of the textures/gradients/roundcorners?), or maybe someone should create a new thread for Aesthetics...

I'm glad to see people are starting to provide input. This is exactly what we need.
Ileia just wants everything to be pink... and Joey's just insecure
