I dunno, we all know what happened last time lol but it has been playing up for me the last few days

Hope you are ok btw DDTA :-)

:lol:

Can't imagine they are in any hurry to repeat that experience!!

TBH I think its a case of if it ain't broke... here - the servers/database seems pretty solid in the past year or so and many new other features (the blogs, the API etc) have been implemented, and are still being developed.

What would you like to see? I think a bit more customisation would be nice (maybe a choice of colour schemes and a rearrangeable right-hand panel) - ultimately pointless but a bit of fun...

how about a member design competition

the members then choose what they want it to look like and you won't get the "I'm leaving cos i hate the new design" remarks

I've suggested something similar before, I think its a really good idea to be honest. A competition to create a (mock up) redesign of something on HUKD (or the whole layout etc) - doesn't mean it has to be implemented but I'm sure some good ideas would come from it...

Also gives people a chance to be creative (and they don't really need any special skills - it could be something as simple as a mockup in paint or rewording some of the rules in notepad :giggle:)

I don't think the site needs an update, the last one caused untold havoc and I don't think the admin wants to spend money when it clearly isn't necessary....if anything, they just need to spend a bit to improve the servers since the site sometimes struggles to keep up with demand but that's about it.

But there would still be so many inconsistencies :lol:

A design comp would let the members choose something funky, upto date and easy to navigate (hopefully) and as you said, it will get the members using their brains for a second....

but there will still be name calling, suspensions and all the normal misc crap :w00t:

maybe a search feature that actually works :lol:

It could be similar to the API comp, but much more inclusive. Its the sort of thing anyone could enter - they could even do something as simple as make a new smilie/emoticon...

Members could even group together to find a design together. E.g. one of them is the "designer" the others are the thinkers.... A design is better when it comes from those who use it :thumbsup:

Also a new logo wouldn't go a miss :w00t:

it could be incorporated into the design.:whistling:

Let the members make some designs for a "new" hukd but the members vote for the best one. Doesn't mean it will be made, but let's the members have a say in what the design could look like :thumbsup:

The current design is quite bland ...... they could even keep it the same layout, just change the colours

I can't get my name up in the advanced search, so no-one can look for me (should they want to LOL!)

This site has 200 thousand members and in that a wealth of creative talent, it is a community. Admin and the team realise this - they have tapped into it in the past with things such as the blogs and the API - they have also run some excellent, very creative competitions in the past (the photoshop and video contest spring to mind).

Whilst the site is very good, nothing is perfect and there are no doubt countless ways in which it could be improved - and regardless everything needs a facelift every now and then to keep it fresh and this current scheme is pushing 2 years old now. What is wrong with suggesting that they tap into the userbase for ideas?

im well aware there are many creative people who have a lot of spare time on their hands that post on here.....im sure admin will let you know if they are planning to upgrade the site and are wanting some user input as they have done in the past with the things you have mentioned, as far as i see it there is no thread asking for any input? sure admin will let u know if he needs you to help out!

so my suggestion was to look and find some hot deals which may enhance the site in the way it is intended, until there is a job as developer that comes available for you

now you can put a slant of negativity on my blunt posts if you like .....matters not to me but you tend to have a pop at me when someone else has hence the bandwagon comment

I'm not after a job. There is no harm whatsoever in suggesting things, I genuinely think its a good idea and the team may not have thought of it. There are all kinds of ways in which the site can be helped outside of posting deals, be it helping in requests and misc, people who report rule breaches, pointing out bugs or making suggestions on ideas to improve the site.

I say its negative because to me it reads very negatively. I think to a third-party it will read negatively. In fact I find it incredulous that you don't see how it is negative yourself.

Where has someone else? I have responded directly to your comment in this thread, nobody else has. I don't see how your comment was constructive at all (I think it was entirely detrimental to this thread) and I have replied saying so - that is all.
