Few changes needed in EC....

I am proposing a few changes. See if members agree to them.

1. Only 2 breaking news items may be included in homepage instead of 4
2.There is already a search option in top-navigation bar. The one on right side (below scrolling welcome message) is redundant. For guests, the existing 'search' option should be included in top navigation bar.
3.I dont think many of us use 'news archive' feature. It may be replaced by 'recipe corner' because current location of 'recipe corner' is not good IMO
4. Welcome message should include link to 'archives' as the current link location (at bottom of page) is not easily accessible
5. 'Sites we recommend' should be moved to the existing 'recipe corner' location.
6. Calendar feature should be removed from homepage both for guests and members (members already have it in top-navigation bar). I dont think anyone must be using it.

7.following smileys are used very sparingly by users......they may be replaced by something interesting (sorry premi..i know was your fav smiley back then)...infact we need to add some interesting smileys to make our conversations spicey....here are few examples...members may recommend some more....also we need to change smiley as it hardly looks like someone who is sticking out his tongue...existing smileys can be replaced by some of the smileys I am recommending...

Re: Few changes needed in EC....

Good suggestions VyomsPai ... Sutrdharji, can we have a separate panel on philosophy as well ... the thing is I dont want folks to search for threads that they want to keep up with but are lost as other threads become popular ...

I know Amthaji and Babu Hyderabadi Pai would also agree with me ... they dont get a chance to participate much ... (J/K )

Also folks instead of repping can you please rate threads ...

Smileys are good Sprite Pai ... I like them ...

Good one.

Agree.

Only Yahoo or Google or MSN bots or crawlers use it.

Yup.

5. 'Sites we recommend' should be moved to the existing 'recipe corner' location.

Agree.

Get rid of it.

These three are ugly. NO.







About smilies, Ask Honest. He uses some good smilies.

DONE
2.There is already a search option in top-navigation bar. The one on right side (below scrolling welcome message) is redundant. For guests, the existing 'search' option should be included in top navigation bar.
No. Users almost always try to look for a Search box whether its a search engine, news portal, porn site, public forum, blog, etc. Search box will remain in its location. You can look at so many sites to confirm what I am saying.
3.I dont think many of us use 'news archive' feature. It may be replaced by 'recipe corner' because current location of 'recipe corner' is not good IMO
News Archive removed. Recipe Corner replaces it.
4. Welcome message should include link to 'archives' as the current link location (at bottom of page) is not easily accessible
DONE
5. 'Sites we recommend' should be moved to the existing 'recipe corner' location.Will it not be too wide? Please look at the changes I have made and then come back with an alternative suggestion.
6. Calendar feature should be removed from homepage both for guests and members (members already have it in top-navigation bar). I dont think anyone must be using it.
Calendar removed.

7.following smileys are used very sparingly by users......they may be replaced by something interesting (sorry premi..i know was your fav smiley back then)...infact we need to add some interesting smileys to make our conversations spicey....here are few examples...members may recommend some more....also we need to change smiley as it hardly looks like someone who is sticking out his tongue...existing smileys can be replaced by some of the smileys I am recommending...
Will upload new smileys in the afternoon or tonight. Cooldude also had a couple of good smileys. Need to get them all up. Please post all of them once again. Also suggest what tag you want so that they can show up. For example if you type a colon followed by an uppercase D then you get

Re: Few changes needed in EC....

Popular tags will be visible on main page at the very bottom where Recipe Corner used to be, but only for registered users. WE dont want a DDOS attack like we did where tags were being searched for sequentially.

Laal Mirchi is NOT visible to non-registered and non-dedicated (100 days old and 300 posts min) users. So when you are logged in you know where to go for Laal Mirchi.

Re: Few changes needed in EC....

also, if members agree, should we include the poll feature in place of '3rd and 4th row' taaza khabar space so that outside people can get an idea about all the whacky polls here. I know it will take more space breadth wise but currently thing is lil hidden.

Re: Few changes needed in EC....

Chalo I am in a very 'lets do something sooner than later' mood I will post the poll right below the second Tazaa Khabar. Let me know. Use this thread and vote on the new layout changes. I mean let me know. Also please remember to include not just a smiley but also the text that goes with it to cause it to show up. Like we type colon followed by uppercase D to get or type colon vomit colon to get or colon shit colon to get

Re: Few changes needed in EC....

Thanks sprite and all of you who are contributing to this thread. I think I have done enough changes for the day. I will get back to work now. Please keep adding specific suggestions and I will get to it. This is sort of unfair to Cooldude because that poor fellow has been asking me to make changes since long and even gave a few smilies and I just procrastinated. Sorry Coolbhau. But chalo.. better late than never.
