  Sites Update - Network News
  Posted by: GOODY on 01-12-2010 @ 03:31 - Source: FileFront
This News Item has been viewed 51,807 times
After the "what do you think of our Network" news item we thought that now would be the ideal time to update you on topics discussed and keep you all upto date about a few other things.

Firstly The sites have a new layout along with additional features in the comments. You will have no doubt seen this and we hope that you like it. Lets not stop there though, The site layout is still being discussed at the highest level and so is the site futures. Don't worry though the sites are not going anywere but they are going to be in a constant state of development over the next year or 2.

The voting bug is now FIXED, Yep you read it correctly. Polls, Files and POTD can all be voted on again. I did promise a supermod on the forums that when this was fixed I would be shouting about it naked but your eyes are safe as I am fully dressed while typing this, honest wink

A note about Affiliates.
Some will have noticed that the sites affiliates have been either totally removed or most have been removed.
If you had a affiliates with our sites then contact the site managers for the specific site. To be a affiliate we have a few simple rules but every single application to be a affiliate will be judged on its own merit. We will be trying to keep the affiliates full of the very best of the community sites.

A small update on a couple of new bugs that are being worked on and should be fixed asap.
Some new files are not resolving to the front page this does not effect all sites and is being sorted out. All files however do show in the latest files in the right hand menu when you select the game download catagory that the file is for.
Some new files are displaying the wrong developer and are showing the dev as "soundlizard" This is not a staff error and this again is being sorted out. However the correct developer is still set ot the back end so once this has been fixed the correct dev will be displayed. This is not effecting all sites but a select few. If this has happened to one of your files then please do not worry about it and know that we are aware and it is a very high on the list of fixes.

Now all site managers get new polls up Two Thumbs Up!

Pretty sure a lot of people expressed their *dislike* for the new layout... It's messy and uncoordinated.

Least one thing is sorted out I guess.

Glad you have the voting fixed. But the new site layout is HORRIBLE.

Nav system: Unnecessarily large, taking up a ridiculous amount of space

PotD: Why place it in a corner hidden from sight? And what sort of space does THAT give for titles?

Browsing: Absolutely pointless. Why take up so much space on the front page with a file browser that's already placed MUCH more conveniently on the sidebar? Not only is it making it worse, but why have TWO file browsers?

The NEWEST files are the most important of all, yes, but WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING THE LAST 2 FILES AS A HEADER? And what is the point of making the titles of the sections so huge? We're trying to fit in as much content as possible, not extend the page more than it already is!

Other: ADVERTISEMENTS EVERYWHERE. And of course, they just HAD to be placed in the middle of a review!

Hope you change it back to the way it was.....

Looks good, I like the new layout. Don't care much about the voting the feed back I get from members let me know if I did a good job or need to add/fix something.

Also give Goody a break guys. Be happy he is checking up on this site and keeping it up for us and addressing problems as best he can. Not too many reliable sites out there hosting or even paying attention to the needs of SFC gamers anymore.

I think we have all been frustrated with the length of time it has taken to fix some bugs, but please remember that FileFront has had limited resources since it was taken over by its new owners after nearly being closed for good by Ziff Davis. Some things may not progress quite as quickly as people would like, but please be patient with your Site Managers, Network Admins and the upper FileFront Management as we are all attempting to do as best we can! smile

Fact of the matter is that the layout is pretty messy. They need to change things around. Some parts are alright, most of it isn't.

The site layouts are always and will always be a matter for debate, although we take all opinions into consideration, some people like it, some people don't. I myself didn't like it, but have grown to just put up with it.

What I would ask members to do is to let the upper management and staff have some space, bugs are getting fixed now and hopefully this trend will continue. After the big bugs are fixed which I would argue is the most important thing at the moment, I guess then we can really go wild with other things people suggest here and there.

# Henze: It's me thats gay... but I can still hug him and scare him =O!

# Codyy: Erm, your post is what I wrote. http://jediknight3.filefront.com/news/New_Site_Layout_and_File_Submission_probems;45127x#1922485

Next time you copy and paste at least say that I wrote it o_O

P.S. I still stand by what I said:

Nav system: Unnecesarily large, taking up a ridiculous amount of space

PotD: Why place it in a corner hidden from sight? And what sort of space does THAT give for titles?

Browsing: Absolutely pointless. Why take up so much space on the front page with a file browser that's already placed MUCH more conveniently on the sidebar? Not only is it making it worse, but why have TWO file browsers?

Latest files, news & top downloads: I agree with the new order, because the NEWEST files are the most important of all, yes, but WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING THE LASTEST 2 FILES AS A HEADER? And what is the point of making the titles of the sections so huge? We're trying to fit in as much content as possible, not extend the page more than it already is!

Polls & voting: STILL NOT WORKING!

Other: ADVERTS EVERYWHERE. And of course, they just HAD to be placed in the middle of a review! AND THERE STILL AREN'T ANY MORE MIRRORS! AND THE FILE SUBMISSION SYSTEM IS BROKEN!

Honestly, the combination between the new changes and the unfixed/unimproved old things is just outrageous. INSTEAD OF INTRODUCING STUPID NEW LAYOUTS THAT SCREW THE SITE, STAFF AND VISITORS UP, FIX THE OLD BUGS, PROVIDE ANOTHER MIRROR IN EUROPE, AND LEARN TO WARN YOUR STAFF OR YOU'LL JUST PUT PEOPLE OFF THIS PLACE!

At the end of the day, this design is still about 6 years older than Moddb's or SI's....

It needs a complete reconstruction, not a little reshuffle...

Even with good news people like to *****.
This is closed as it is not a debate on the site layout. As stated the sites are still in a state of development. All you really had to be told was that the voting is fixed but as a promised I was trying to keep people upto date.
Looks like that task will now be done on closed topics.
Nice work.
