OverClocked ReMix Design ?'s and Issues

Recommended Posts

I suggest taking Projects and the Feedback forums and putting them in their own group of forums. There's too many subforums in Workshop, this would leave 3 of them - a much more manageable number, and reduce the Community subforums to 3 as well. The suggested group could probably house Workshop and its remaining subforums as well.

And if there is then a shortage of subforums, Album Comments/Reviews could be a subforum under ReMix Comments/Reviews. Clears up the forum page to make room for the suggestion above.

The obscure location and name of the WIP board isn't helping. The name Feedback: Workshop ReMixes is kind'a weird, it implies they are ocr ReMixes. Then there's the occasional confusions about whether a post there is a wip or a release, and the name doesn't really help clear that up (or even suggest there's both wips and releases there). I know I've previously suggested splitting them into two forums to more distinguish between them but that's another matter. With the most useful feedback coming from regulars, not from first-time visitors who come via the ocr front page, burying the forum seems counter-productive.

edit: ppl are apparently confused, this thread was in the FL forum, not Feedback: Workspace ReMixes.

Suggestion for Darke.

This is kind of a small bug, but in the "who posted in this thread" box, the menu bar appears, and is kind of in the way of the top half of the box.

There are spelling disagreements on the title of this mix. The variations are:

CMS101LevelOne (mix page and overt file info)

CMS-101-Level One (Winamp playlist info)

CSM-101 Level One (Review and Judges Decisions thread titles)

The new site header menu now shows up in the smilie list pop-up window. I bet that wasn't intentional.

That same smilie list needs some reordering, btw - and the regular non-pop-up smilies list could use some cleanup as well (lots of duplicates).

I'm missing the option to list only remixers and sort them after number of remixes. :(

Solutions would be to put back the separate remixer and composer listings (in addition to the artist listing), or to implement an advanced search for the database.

I might have some comments, but can you provide a screenshot of the previous forum setup? I think it will help to compare the two side by side.

Still wondering about this.

Amy noticed that the 15 latest comments on a ReMix page also shows deleted comments. Check out http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR00316/ vs. http://www.ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=148&page=5 for an example.

Noticed that too. Another occurrence (eighth one down, as of now): http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01711/ and http://www.ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=16169&page=2. It was deleted for a good reason, but the ones Palpable pointed out are worse.

Also, this page just delivers coding errors: http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01180/.

(such as: Warning: DOMDocument::loadXML() [domdocument.loadxml]: Opening and ending tag mismatch: x line 11 and blockquote in Entity, line: 18 in /home/ocremix/public_html/includes/php/classes/BaseView.php on line 155)

I know IE 8 is pretty much the devil, but I thought I'd let you know about a bug. I went to this page, http://www.ocremix.org/game/secret-of-monkey-island-dos/, and noticed that there were some thumbnails of screenshots to click on. I thought that was a cool idea, by the way. So, I clicked on it and got... nothing. The lights dimmed, but nothing came up. Here's a screenshot:

The page for Chrono Trigger's 'LostFragmentsofthePast' (http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR00831/) is missing one of the source songs. It should be "Green Memories" and, from Radical Dreamers, "Under the Moonlight". I don't know about Schala's Theme - if it's there, it's subtle. However, "Under the Moonlight" is unmistakable here.

Actually, I kinda like IE8. This is a big problem, thanks for bringing it to my attention. The author of the script in question just changed to a commercial license (lame) so I'll probably just look for a replacement of some kind.

The new dropdowns are a little... overwhelming. Are you sure we need to see that much at once? The "forums home" is a comparatively small link amidst the sea of everything else you've got in there. If nothing else, do you think you could display the original function for each of links prominently at the top?

Please try using it for a couple days before you draw conclusions; if there are rendering problems I do want to hear about that, but kneejerk reactions are never a good thing. Also, the larger menu items *are* links themselves.

MEGADROPDOWNS ARE AWESOME.

Seriously, they make my life much MUCH easier. Sidebar can go take a hike :tomatoface:

I love the new drop downs! They're really slick :) I do have some feedback though. It would be nice if the box could load say 20-30 pixels lower. As it is now, when you hover over a link, the drop down loads and the box is just high enough that it covers most of the other menu links to the left and right of it, meaning that you either have to move the mouse up to unload the box, or move it left/right along that 15-ish pixel row of menu that isn't covered by the dropdown.

Maybe its a little hard to understand what I'm saying so I took a screenshot: http://img19.yfrog.com/i/menukxo.jpg/ You can see the drop down box is covering most of the links around it. Lowering it just a bit would make a big difference.

That doesn't happen for me. Just saying.

if you don't enter a private message recipient, it tells you that your recipient doesn't exist. this is no big deal. however, it's followed by the statement "Click Here to See the Members List" - no punctuation, lots of capitals. i realize this isn't a big deal, but everything else on this site is formatted so pretty :<

it'd be nice, actually, if that link was bolded rather than improperly capitalized. i didn't notice it the first time around.

edit: nor for me, abg.

Okay, so I just tried it in Firefox and it looks fine! I guess its some sort of browser incompatibility thing.. it was when I was browsing with Internet Explorer 8 that the drop down loaded too high.

EDIT: I just realized that the drop down only does this when I'm browsing the forums. Every other page is fine in IE8.

Dropdowns are lookin' good. Maybe I should start using them instead of just the sidebar and search box. Maybe.

Upper right corner of the dropdowns' shadow looks a little weird, tho.

Confirmed issue with forums in IE8 and seemingly all the time in IE7; the site that I modified the code from works fine in both, so I'm assuming there's a workaround that I just need to figure out.

One can always hope... :wink:

A minor issue, that I've mentioned before. Even though I set my account to be logged-in all the time, and always enable auto-login, I still have to log in regardless. In fact, I can come to OCR, go to UnMod or WIPs (which you need to be logged in for, and then suddenly have no access because I need to log in again. It will only be a few seconds between entering the specific board, and then BAM! I'm logged out for some reason.

I've checked cookies and security settings on my end, and nothing has changed at all. And this site is the only one I see this happening on.

Has there been a fix to this? It happens to me all the time, especially if I read a long topic without clicking a link, then when I want to respond, I have to login again.
