The homepage has remained the same since Z's passing.  I think it would be appropriate if it was updated giving the current situation of everything, no?  Just a thought.

It would probably help with everyone who comes here still thinking he's alive.

That proves to be too awkward for my tastes.

Very true. Maybe one of the graphically-gifted design types on the board can come up with a symbol or construct to be placed left or right of the main banner in order to memorialize big Z. An imbedded link would then take you to his obituary.

On another matter, is PP going to make any other changes to the board?? I would really like to see an item like this:

" Forums > The Site > Updating the homepage? "

placed at the bottom of any displayed webpage. IMHO, it would simplify navigating back and forth among pages. Many times after cursoring down a long page, I have wanted to quickly jump back to the main Forums page. It could be placed  left-margin-aligned on the line of  "Reply" and just below "Previous Thread"  bar "Next Thread".

 I have seen this done on other boards as well.   Just a suggestion; if its not too difficult to do.

Jerks....sober up moment here. It would be nice to see something in honor of Z-man. Sure, it'll mean more to those of us who knew him and loved him as a battlebuddy/fucktard....but for noobs coming in-zone, it would make things clear for them that the Z-soldier has moved onto the next phase of life.

Nuff said.

That's at the top of the screen already, if you hadn't noticed it there.  Figured I'd mention that, just in case.

The present plan is to make a very simple single static page (a la jlbourne.com) listing the books and a few relevant links.  Actually, if anyone has skillz and would like to whip something up along those lines that would be awesome.

nierahzee, master of the obvious.

Seriously though, that's why I  boldened (is that a word?) the word "bottom".  My eyes are not that old...

Actually, I'm with Doc on this " extra navigation link" thing.

It's hard for my connection to take all these pictures sometimes (Unholy's signature and Alex's avatar--but that doesn' bother me too much  ) so having a link at the bottom that I can use would be sufficient.

Haha!  My plan is working.  I will slowly add more gif images to ma sig until RCS's PC can't take it any more!  Then, I shall become the king of the wild land.

An extra link would be nice.

You'd be amazed how often people miss the obvious.    Like the word "bottom" being in bold.  Woo!

Two minutes before that post, I cleared up two weeks of people puzzling through problems at work by pointing out the obvious.  They were happy and angry all at once.  ZOMG, how did we not see that?  We love you and hate you!  Reargh!

Two minutes later, I'm stating the obvious and missing the obvious myself.  Woo!  Go me!
