Any suggestions?

As it stands, it looks like this:

Gday Username - Unread | Latest | Subscribed | Private Messages | Logout

If there's any specific link you use frequently which I haven't included there let me know.

And for those with more than 15 posts the footer ads disappear and they simply see the general forum links at the bottom - any thoughts as to best links to include there also welcome.

That was a temp thing - I knew it'd be annoying for a bit but a necessary evil for some testing.

I'm trying to find the best layout for normal desktop usage which is mostly 1280+, and a significant number of mobile/iphone users.

As it is now - both types of browsers should have the screen optimised to their device.

Here's a couple screenshots from the iPhone - of course it being stoopid I can't upload the original size :?

i use ... the arcade

Arcade - it's not typically used every time a regular member visits, which is what I'm looking for.

The link to the arcade is available in the footer, or in the forum index where it tells you what the latest scores are from other players, or from various threads where we smack-talk about the video games we beat each other at. :p

I'm happy for plenty more discussion and playing of the games and general boasting of latest conquests and game requests in the off-topic section, but I don't think it's an important enough link to have listed as a major feature of the site.


i use ... the photo gallery

Not sure which link to the photo gallery you'd like highlighted. 

I've recently re-added the random half-dozen gallery thumbnail pics to the unread URL - which is incidentally the one I use as my bookmark here - what other links do you use?

The new format and quick links works well. Don't over cook it, keep it simple.

Bookmark it.

:bump:

Will be tinkering in the back-end pro-actively for the next week or so, if you have any sordid requests send them to goober, but for stuff to do with the website and anything which would make it better for you speak up now while I'm elbow deep in code.
