... if anyone has any thoughts, musings, ramblings, suggestions, critiques, complaints, observations, notes on TheMook.Net in general?
Progress site-wise is, what's the word, glacial, but I do make the occasional tweak here and there.
Just puttering around last night and added a quick Picture Gallery
, and made the RPG front page a little purtier:
It used to have a style more like this (which I'll eventually change to match the RPG page. Remember glacial?):
Clearly not a monument of website building, but sometimes I just like to tinker. But I doubt I have a very objective viewpoint as to the site - I often wonder:
Is it easy enough to navigate?
Is it embarrassingly amateurish, or passable, or pretty good, or ...?
Because it's always grown in chunks and pieces, I've usually maintained independent and dedicated software for different tasks - phpBB2
for the message boards, WordPress
for the blog, good ol' PHP
for the overall framework, etc. Personally I like that, but is it a little too ragtag?
Anything I should add? Make bigger? Smaller? Get rid of? Change?
Is having that "TheMook.Net" logo with a home link at the upper left of pretty much every page overkill?
Is there too much money grubbing? Google ads, Amazon stuff
, LBA stuff
... it all seems innocuous enough, but I don't want to whore out so much people find it annoying.
I'm really pretty open to suggestions is what I'm saying
Though I make no promises about any change actually being made
