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.

"Out of interest, please provide a link to a talkback or a forum"

Here's an even easier solution. Go to the one of many thousands of non-browser related forums and put your theories to them as to how they will only use what sits in front of them and that most of them are mentally challenged when it comes to clicking a mouse. You'll be quite surprised in the responses you receive...

"If think you are fighting fathoms"

Nope... just you and possibly a few other misguided souls.

"This type of simplistic argument might be chic with the "keep it simple" chanting masses but it glosses over the true complexity of reality"

Quite the opposite, this *simple* reality disrupts your complex rationalizations that assist you in sleeping better at night.
