A chatroom is for chatting, period.

Maybe I am totally misunderstanding what you're saying about displaying notifications in a chat...

shrug

If so, whoops, but either way, now everyone knows how I feel about that.

Guest

Notifying when someone enters or leaves chat is pretty standard and expected. You kinda want to know when someone shows up if you're talking about them behind their back in chat.

The other notifications can go in an event log window. A lot of the features will be on tabs anyway, so the event log would likely be covered up by another tab.

Thank God!

But that's not a setting you're gonna wanna require people to look around too hard for.

While we're on that subject, the most commonly used settings will be on a tab. One thing I absolutely detest about every Web forum is how the user control panel is spread out across 5 or 6 pages, and you have to wade through the pages (and wait and wait for them to load) to find a setting. Fuck all that.

Bear in mind, some features won't be in the initial release. I don't want to fool around for a year before I get the product out the door.

For example, there will be no guest posting, and you won't be able to block other users at first. The point of community software is to create a community. If people want to join the community, they need to register. If they're a disruptive pain in the ass, they need to be banned.

Also, a lot of administration tasks will be handled through phpMyAdmin or another MySQL admin program at first. When a community is first starting up, only one person (the sysop) will be using those features. It doesn't make sense to delay the product launch while I build what amounts to a whole second program for one user.

Oooo, I like that! Amen!

I spent most of the day building a color scheme generator that outputs color triads (120 degrees apart), complimentary colors (180 degrees), compound (split complimentary) colors (150 degrees), analogous colors (30 degrees), and monochromatic ranges based on a given input color. Such groupings are known to work well together.

Sample output based on the greenish color shown on top of the first 4 groups:

It should be close enough to the thing that Canadian guy did years ago. It generates enough colors to build a theme with contrasting fonts and backgrounds, and some lighting effects for buttons and 3D borders.
That's AWESOME. I love this!

Guest

I've heard tell of things like this that generate a palette from the colors in a photo. It would be pretty cool to upload your profile pic and have the website automagically build a matching color scheme. Maybe I'll mess around with that in a future release.

Guest

Here's a full Web app that makes use of the ColorScheme class.

MO's Dream Site!

LOOOL!

That's sooooo cute.

You're so lucky you know how to build stuff like that.

Guest

Luck has nothing to do with it.

You need to learn this stuff, grasshopper.

Begin from where you are.
That's what they always say!!!

Guest

And you didn't figure maybe they were tryna tell you sumfin? lol
Well truth be told I am already a total expert in everything I care about...

Banana

So I don't actually want to do what anybody else does.

But I do admire your capabilities and I think someday you and all the other old dudes who look down upon "luck" as a factor in anything they've accomplished whatsoever should probably soften their hearts and LET A LITTLE MOTHERFUCKIN' WONDER IN AND SAY HEY YOU KNOW WHAT, IN RETROSPECT, I AM KINDA LUCKY TO HAVE THIS ABILITY.

It really wasn't luck though. these skills were acquired through lots of study and lots of practice.

As far as their being lucky, they haven't paid the bills or put food on the table in over a year, so where's the luck exactly?

Guest

You better be nice to me, or I'll change the name to "Guest's Dream Site!" and cut you out altogether.  Tongue

Do you know what I did yesterday?

I generated 360 stylesheets from the ColorScheme program and saved them all as CSS files.

Then I put a script on the website layout to cycle through the stylesheets, smoothly fading from one color scheme to the next, round and round the color wheel.

It was a motherfucking trip, girl.

Those smelly old Boomer hippies in the 60s didn't have enough LSD to see the visuals I saw.

So yeah, I guess I'm kinda lucky. Banana
