Site Suggestions

Tuesday January 8th, 2002

A few of you have asked for us to post a news item taking your suggestions for the site, so here it is. Tell us all your ideas for what we can do to improve the site. Anything you want we'll think about, but try to keep it realistic.

Just to keep you updated, one of the things we're planning on working on is getting the ChromeZone up again, if we can find some volunteer editors to help organize themes. If you're interested, please email me and I'll get back to you sometime this week.

UPDATE! Right now we're working on dumping all the tables and other old HTML within the site to both show off Mozilla's skills, and to get our file sizes smaller. If you're using Communicator to view the site, you'll notice everything looking pretty ugly, thanks to the poor CSS support it offers. If you're using IE, it'll look a bit better, but thanks to IE's lacking CSS2 support, the sidebar will show up incorrectly. We've completely redone the homepage and talkback code, and we'll be working on the forums next.

UPDATE 2! We discovered Google's great "Search Site" feature, and have added it. Right now it has most areas of the site indexed except news item talkback pages. It will start indexing talkback today, and will hopefully add all of the old items, in addition to picking up the new ones.

UPDATE 3! We've been working hard to get as many of your suggestions as possible implemented, and we encourage you to continue the feedback. You can check this article's responses for what items we have fixed, or are working on.

Here's a novel idea, you give me a break for once, while I work on my own to get everything working. You're incorrect in thinking I didn't try it in IE, as I did. You are correct in thinking I didn't care how it looked. I want to get it right in Mozilla first, others later. This is my first time doing a site that's not built for 4.x, so I'm a bit unsure of how to do things. I realize now that the span class=bold was wrong, and have been working on replacing them with 'strong'. I'll look at making the class names shorter, that's a fine idea. Your "I can do all this much better than you" tone I can do without. Grow up, learn how to be civil when you post, and maybe people won't think you're such a dick all the time.
