Oh yeh sorry i've added you as admin.

I've fixed the portal block (link to us).

The test forum portal block (stats) now says our community and has the forum name in it and i've changed the colours around a bit. Also added days online with a little hover over magic.

More ideas welcome Smile

This is surprising when i go to test forum i can't see anything,no Portal blocks and no messages.

Al i see is banner.Anything wrong with the site or with me? Question

>the size is still too big,the Link To Us block,the reason being that the blocks on the Left side,Column 1 are thin and the blocks on the right side are too bid in comparison to it.
I want it to be of equal width,both blocks.

>Next up is making the HTML pages for-
Forums Rules(Draft being prepared will soon be out)
About Us(Will soon be out)
Games AoF Plays.(Same here)

i think we need to Re design the portal page anyway so we should fix it on the test site and throw up ideas for the site dere.

BTW i got same prob as when u wanted admin rights here. u need to put me in the user group of Admins not just add the ranks.

@techno_kid-
Much better. Applause

The Stat block looks good now.But it needs a bit more refinement to be finally put here.-

>Age-By age field i would guess you are talking about the age of the forum.Please don't use that field name.I rather prefer 'Days Online' or even 'Forum Age'.It looks a bit vague to me.

Pls change that.It appears to be underlined as well,don't know why.

>Now when you transfer it here by editing the block here,pls make sure that the Welcome part says this-
"Welcome to the Forums of the AoF Gaming Community,name."

Please incorporate the above changes and then put it here.

Regarding the .co.cc domain etc,i know about it,but isn't it only free for 1 year?

Also I would finish the pages as soon as possible.

We also need to think of what the Arcade should be like.I made a post regarding the Arcade in the test forum pls give your views regarding it.
What i want is-
I want people to be able to see the overall stats/high scores of games we put in Arcade.
And i want the games that can be played clearly listed.Also only registered users should be allowed to play.

Yes,as i said i want Yahoo bot on our forums as well.

But i checked up the issue on support forum and some of them are saying the Yahoo bot follows the Google bot and it takes time.
After Yahoo comes MSN.

As such there is meta tag added here on this forum,this forum doesn't have a sitemap,but there is a way to make a rudimentary one,which i made and submitted it to Google in their Webmaster Tool service,as a result of it we are up there in Google.
The only problem being the sitemap doesn't update itself,and therefore it has to be done manually which is a tedious job as it is just a HTML page listing links of the forum.(about 400 links)
I have to update it now as it was last done in December.

I searched for our forums in Yahoo Site index,apparently about 100 pages were there.

Don't know much about this though....

Though it will be good if we can do more to increase traffic here.

I particularly want to know about .co.cc domains,the limitations and what benefit it will give us. Question

I have made a post regarding page layout in Test forum,pls check it.We need to come up with a good layout.

The first page will then be delivered.

Thnks for stats block.
