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.

You are replying to this message

"There were 50 postings like your's before so your's gives no new hint in any way."

None of the from me. I have just as much right to voice what I think, too. But you are correct, I only caroused about half way down the list of the 100 or so messages before I replied. That is about where the real complaints started. It's nice to see that I'm not the only one on this side of the fence.

"Maybe they get money for that so they can pay their ISP?" "Well you don't have to pay MozillaZine's bill."

Jesus, don't scare me. What a frightening amount that must be. Who do you think you guys are kidding with all of this 'ivory tower' expense nonsense? It doesn't cost much to run a site like this. Have you checked ISP prices lateley? You guys make it sound like it is a $10,000 per month expense. Come on!

As far as traffic, how long as this place been around? 4 years tops? In that time there have been almost 900 articles posted, throw out the top and lowest 20 replied to articles, and you have a whopping average of 19 posts per article. Yeah, were talking insurmountable traffic here. I know, I know: for every post there are 10,000,000 viewers.

"you are free to use whatever browser you like."

Not really, IE is about the only realistically viable option I have at the moment.
