    Default New site design, new features

    Hey folks...

    Yet another site redesign is on the way (for the homepage); this time the color scheme will be based on the colors here in the forum, and the logo will be a very slight variation of Zesty's forum logo. So be on the lookout for that...

    ...in related news, I know a lot of you guys just skip the main page entirely end exclusively use the forum. That's understandable since the main page really isn't updated very often.

    Well, we're looking to change that. Hicks and I have been discussing some possible new features to the main page, among them a spoof article subsection of the site along the lines of www.theonion.com or rickbrunson.com .

    Here's some old Pacers.com spoof articles I've done to give you an idea of what we've got in mind (though the new section won't masquerade as an actual Pacers site):

    Old Brad Miller article from last summer

    Newer Ronnie article

    The problem right now is that we don't have a NAME for this new section of the site. We're thinking something that conveys "Insider Information" of some sort, but with an original name that isn't ripping off "ESPN Insider" or "Pacers Insider" etc.

    And, of course, we'll need help with the articles and Photoshop stuff.

    All ideas are welcome, including new site feature suggestions...

    I've never really understood why the main page was updated so slowly. The Indystar supports RSS, right?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Well it won't really be a Pacer insider, it will be a pacer fan insider, so it should say something to that effect. Here's some ideas that could stand alone or be combined with other ideas.

    As soon as the site re-design is done. Things are going slowly this week since I have finals (I think Hicks does too). But I'd say sometime next week everything should be up and running...

    BUMP

    rabid, if you have anything else to request, ask, or say, just bump this thread; I'm just gonna de-sticky it since it's not really getting attention right now and I'm trying to de-clutter.
