New Website Format

New Website Format

Postby Ssedrey on Thu Jan 08, 2004 10:39 am

Heya everybody. Me and Brook have been thinking about making the main page look better than it currently is. Problem is we don't know exactly what to do with it to make it more accessible to the readers and make it look better all around. I want the site to be pretty. Yay.

Ideas are to make the rants more accessible but not forced by placing buttons underneath the comic that open a window to the latest rant. These buttons will be labeled with either mine or Brook's name and the date of the most recent rant.

Also, in a similar style to MT, I want something I can access quickly to let you guys know the status of the next strip so you can rest assured that we're still moving.

Other than that though, we need some ideas. Like where to place the menu... Perhaps a better border for the comic, as well as a better background... Or other cool stuff we can add to the page to make it niftier. Since you guys are the ones reading it, I figure you know best about what would make the site better. So give us your input.

The current website represents the fullest extent of my web design skills. I think it's decent, but I'd like something a little more professional looking, which is why we're asking for advice.

Finally... Yay, Irene likes our strip! (I know Irene in RL) And yes, I do the writing, and Daniel draws it up.

That's two readers! Woo-hoo!

I gotta start bustin' my butt to get these sunday specials up in time. Feels a little lacking with just the Tuesday and Thursday update.

Honestly, there is alot that can be done to improve your site's cosmetic layout, but would it be worth the time? In my opinion... defiantly not. As far as functionality, there isn't anything that comes to mind that would be potentially useful...... But, I don't intend to discourage you from your interest of updating your layout, by all means, add all the menus, links, graphics, etc. you want.

The only thing I can see on your current site layout that might be worth an update is your banner design.

oh god yes. I really need to make a new banner. Don't get me wrong, the old one's all well and good, but I can't help but look at it and grimace. I don't think of come too far from the old days, but I think I've come far enough to be able to draw something with a few less flaws.

As for the site layout, yeah, there really isn't too much we can do to improve efficiency. Just certain areas here and there I think we can work on to keep from losing our grand total of 3 readers now. (thanks for coming back K :) ). Such as having a drawing status bar so I can let people know quickly when I'm stuck in a situation like Monday where I got called in to work in the evening leaving me little time to do the strip. Or other occasions, where I'm just late and am desperately rushing to get the next strip done on time. I think it'd be pretty convenient if our readers knew when something like this was going on and had a reasonable approximation of time for when the strip will actually be up.

Other than that, just a bit of sparkle to make the site look better. Make it just a bit easier on the eyes. So, any suggestions on making this site look pretty at the very least... Help us!

Well, you need to understand my position. I love Diana. I had been working on the idea a couple of years before I ever mentioned it to Daniel, and I continue to think of it now. I want to make this comic as good as it can.

But I'm the writer, I have the easy job. I'm already a couple months ahead on scripts, and I intend to keep it that way (gives me more flexibility), so that gives me a good bit of time to try to help the comic in other ways. I'm looking into potential advertising roads (word of mouth is good and all, just a tad too slow), but other than that, the only thing I can think of to do right now is working on the webpage.

But the site works, and that's enough for now, I guess. On that note, I should have the gallery updated with all the old strips and the newer artwork, as soon as I'm finished refurbishing my apartment (two of my roommates are moving out, and they own ALL the stuff)

What?!?

Postby K_One on Thu Apr 08, 2004 3:44 am

Oh I see , Ssed thinks I dont read his stuff just because I happened to leave from my home near him for about 2.5 years. I'm a reader too ya know! Chalk up a 4th reader draconiboy! :D I can kinda agree with the 'older banner' part though. You need something more updated. But I do have to remember that this is Ssed I'm talking about. I know how you work , I know how those gears grind up there.


BTW.... I called the other day and you weren't there. I'll try again some other time.[/code]

Well, I'd update the menu, since for one, there's no Daniel at the moment. =-)

Maybe move the menu so that it's beside the rants on the right? With maybe a different background so that it can easily be distinguished from the rant? And maybe give the rants dates?

Hrm, maybe this is just me, but I would remove the calendar so that it's only on the archive page, since it takes up a lot of valuable real estate.

link comic in forum

Postby Irene on Thu Jul 13, 2006 3:32 pm

You know what would help me...a link to the strip from the forum.

You can get to the forum from the comic strip, but not back again, unless you press the back button a bunch.

Besides, someone might stumble onto this forum and it would be good for them to be able to find the comic strip easily.

Just a thought.
