We really need to work on the database

Post by Nonamer » Sun Oct 01, 2006 10:44 pm

Hardly anyone ever touches the database. We could really add stuff in there if it is to be a meaningful source of info.

Also the color scheme really clashes with the rest of the site. Can you JMS make a darker color scheme?

I'll add that in to the "To Do" queue. I hadn't thought about that.

I'll try to take a look and help out when I get a chance (though I too currently have my own "to do" list at the moment).

We have a new default color scheme for the Open Database. It's pretty boring so far, but it mostly fits with the rest of the site. If you want to work on refining it, I'll upload the CSS to a page on the wiki tomorrow.

Great. It's better but we can still improve it further. Top of the list would be changing the link coloring.

I've changed the style of the main page a bit. It fits better, but it probably could be even better. Hope you don't mind.

It's been about 9 months later and there hasn't really been any changes. If no one is interested in updating it, it may be time to end it or redo it.

What's all the garbage on the main page?

It's some wanker thinking it'd be a good idea.

I changed it back to the way it was. Also got rid of some junk in the discussion page that was just pure spam.

Spambots do hit up wikis from time to time. I'm glad to see some attention paid to the Open Database - it has mostly been neglected since the forum was opened.
