Guys I had some time today to play around with a couple of forum options. I'd really like to get a new website up and running before I go away (end of this month).

I am working on a couple of graphics for the new site and was wondering if anyone had any good slogans that I can incorporate into the header graphic. Reply with some suggestions and I will try and include them.

I also took a database backup and upgraded it to the lastest version of the forum (just wanted to make sure it could be done easily in the first place, as the current version/database is over a year old). I will be using this 'snapshot' as part of my testing site while I play around with things. I'd really love the website to have a more suitable look to it rather than the generic 'portal' type setup that it currently is (btw I never thought that the community would grow how it has, so when I started it I didn't really put much time into making it look good).

I'd like to get away from the portal type layout (ie. Nav and current threads on the side) but I guess most people do use these to reply to current threads rather then just going through the forums. Does anyone have any good website layouts that they like? Or or layout suggestions they can share? Most forums around the web reply on using the "View New Post" link (up in your controls bar) to get new threads. Another option was to have an initial 'start' page when it lists info, new threads, users browsing, stats, etc but when you click on a thread or go into the forums, only the forums will be visible.

Let me know what you think and it will be interesting to see how people currently use the website.

Looking forward to seeing the new bells' and whistles'
I'am 10 pints down on three different i.p.a.s' so all i can offer as far as slogan is,

'theres a tree by the brook, where a song bird sings'

or

'stand up next to a mountain and chop her down with the edge of my hand'


ok,ok, vote me off,


I think a main page other than the forum list which is updated often to relate to forum discussions and have recipes of the week etc and maybe a poll of the week a few hot on going polls, thread of the week hilighted etc.
maybe even a brewer of the week poll.
ha, i have had to many pints.
anyway the sky is the limit as far as the site is concerned.
I can see why it would take a lot of time to really fine tune the whole thing
being that there are so many options.



another slogan.

'well she told me yesterday about the love between the moon and the deep blue sea'

or

'this is a story of what not to do if a bird shits on you'


Quite a few beers and 'Adelaide hops'

Other Forums I like the layout of are:
Slashdot
Bodensatz

As for a slogan maybe something like:

- Brewing awesome beer in Oz
- Cooking for Men in Australia
- If you can keep it down it's good
- Helping you brew beer in Australia
- Australian beer brewing support group

Personally I like the Cooking for Men one.

Beers,
Doc

Jayse. You really ARE the walrus. Or maybe the eggman. Goo-goo-ga-joob.

I like this forum. Find it easy to use, better than any others I use, and never have any problems with it. One thing I like on some forums is being told how many times a thread has been viewed and the number of replies.

There was a slogan thrown around here some months back: Hi I'm Dave and I'm a brewaholic. It's six hours since I pitched my last yeast.

Both Good!

Some of GSRman's were good as well.

I think the best way to solve this is to put a couple of good ones together and each time the page loads we can have a different slogan :)

Right that's it. I'm off to the Lord Nelson for a quick beer before heading home.

I like Fiscus's sig ....

And as far as the site mods go, I really like the layout you have going.

I'm not sure how everyone uses the current features, I normally go through each area (ie. The Pub, then Recipes and ingredients) to see what's new, rather than using the Active Threads box.

I also think a dedicated recipe archive would be good (if possible) - I know we have the "Recipes and Ingredients" section, but there's often quite a lot of discussion, and multiple recipes end up falling under the one heading.

But cheers on the site, and isn't it like 1 year to the day almost since it went active?? I seem to remember bludging thelast few days of last year on this site ..... :rolleyes:

Congrats and thanks fiscus
