shiv, is there any way we can make it like 2/3 to 1/4 of the size it is now without losing much quality? The current size, 329kb, is a little on the heavy side for some people (I would assume.) If you need to decrease the dimensions slightly to accomplish that I think it will be fine.

2) Pimp some of the more active projects (Like SoL or ED) on the front page, with an image accompanying each. This'll help get away from the wall of text feel. These could possibly go down the right side under the active threads box with a little box of its own for each major project.
3) In the active threads box, get rid of everything but the thread title to make it shorter. To make room for the project pimping.

I'm voting for applying those two things :D FreeSpace 2 Sector has done on their site already "2)"

Tweaked forum logo.

EDIT:

Should be repleaced with something freespacey like the bars on HLP.

Would this be a prudent time to ask for banning or limiting the use of images in sigs? They generally make the forum harder to read, especially so when they are animated gifs.

good suggestion. actually I have a proposal in the works that would allow project avatar sharing with HLP. in theory this will eliminate the need for signature images

I think introducing sol/ED badges on HLP will be fair this way.

Are the sizes going to be affected? GW badges are different from those seen on HLP...

About the site: I think a section devoted to interviews may be a good addition - to get the section started, I could place there a couple of interviews I partecipated to in the past. :)

Well, GW badges might be redone for hlp purposes.

For par condicio, at that point it'd be necessary to import badges from Sectorgame, FSMods, and any other FreeSpace fanbase hosting projects of public interest.

The only reason it can happen with GW badges is due to both sites being on the same server. That's not the case for SG.

Isn't it possible to get the badges from other sites and create specific groups to use them? I think that's possible even without server-sharing...

It's been considered the possibility of expanding the interface with screenshots. What kind of screens would be appropriate? I can take many of them from different perspectives. :)

Another thing: when considering the formation of a new staff, IMHO it'd be better to see give important roles to "new faces" instead of having the same people playing the same roles throughout multiple fanbases (Shiv's promotion to admin, for example, I something I really liked). Variety is good and brings many benefits with it. Antitrust-based proposal? Not really.

EDIT: What are the medals near my nickname for? I don't see anyone else with them.

It's also so annoying it's never going to happen.
