    Link: I-A-B Poll o` the Day: I-A-B Updates - As I was telling OpieBreath in the last post, I got a new developer who wants to make changes. Here`s where you come in.

    but yeah, change it back to how it looked a while back, with the stuff on the side. i liked it like that...maybe a little more "inviting" than that, but...yeah...

    I am for changing it. However, is it possible to offer two viewing color schemes? Like "Neo-Bored" and "Classic Bored"?

    *hyperventilates* MY NAME IS IN THE DESCRIPTION!


    And I`d be fine with a color scheme, but only if we got to vote on it.

    Oh, and is this an open forum? I think you hinted at that before, Fancy. But it doesn`t say anywhere, and I don`t want to spam. >_>


    And I like Nidonemo`s idea.

    Damn, don`t change the colour scheme! It`s what makes IAB what it is! Brand identity, FFS!

    Macdonalds: Red and Yellow
    BP: Green and Yellow
    Coke: Red and White
    Facebook: Blue and White
    Apple: Deep, sh*te-coloured Brown

    Tell the new developer to wind his/her neck in... We want minor improvements here and there and cool widgets, not meaningless cosmetic changes that add nothing to the site...

    Dont change this, and dont change the layout.

    Although, the layout, keep it how it is but change the shape of some things. More rounded squares that have a popish look. And how about we get a preview of what the developer is thinking

    What this site really needs are subcategories.

    Depends on what the guy is proposing it to be. I`m fine with the current one. Giving each person the option to choose sounds like the best idea. But if the alternatives don`t seem to represent IAB, don`t bother at all.

    CATEGORIES: Games
    Sub-Categories:
    Action
    Card
    Flying Hedgehog....

    and yes a chatbox would be awesom cos then fancy wont close the forum on us all the time

    People are afraid of the change because they think that the site wont be able to go back to what it was before.

    Just make sure you can undo the change if a majority hate it.

    I`d just like to see what he comes up with before we veto it. I mean, if the new color scheme is a lot cooler, then hooray! If not, then we kill it. *shrug* It`s kind of like answering before we`ve heard the question, doing it like this.

    I have a perfect example: MYSPACE! (okay... not anywhere near perfect)

    But remember when Myspace had a rather boring layout but then they changed a few things but kept the colors. We`ll we change even less then that but still tweak it a bit. Simple things. New logo`s for each category things like that

    I was thinking more for the Entertainment, Lifestyle, News and Science categories. I really don`t need to watch all the "Aaaw of the day" links, I`d rather find something that I`m interested in and that will cure my boredom.

    Legacy, are those the only ways to make a chatroom secure? I`m sure we wouldn`t mind it if there were a few hoops to jump through every time we went in, as long as the chat stayed friendly and IABy.

    I know I`m not much in favor of the whole swear word thing... I know another site that is aimed at the same age group this is, and uses a word filter that`s personal. So if I didn`t want to see swear words, I could click "yes" and activate it and then the word filter would be on, but only for me.
    I`m not sure if IAB can do that, but it seems a little more fair (and consistent, considering some of the links posted have swear words) but still lets others not see what they don`t want to.

    Stupid teenagers
    Animals
    Animations/Cartoons
    Comedians
    Skits
    Fat Kids

    and stuff.

    If you change the color schemes.. Who knows what will happen...
    It will be like digg.. without diggatronics.
    It will be like... just... another lame link farm.

    I say definatel KEEP the colors, it`s fits with the logo, which is classic and timeless, but making it more rounded makes it seem more inviting

    "Dunno about subcategories, could be a lower priority. The title/description should be enough. Plus it gives every item a chance to be read, if not clicked."

    Subcategories make it easier for people to keep looking for the same stuff if they`re interested in a certain subject. If we don`t need subcategories then please improve the search function, because it is really bad.

    same color scheme
    change the look of the category buttons
    subcategories
    edit button
    Nindemo`s idea with being able to chose the color
    chatbox (that only people with an account here can get in to)
    the quote button
    SFW or NSFW icon, just so we know
    more categories
    making IAB better organized

    Well, I think it would be amazing to have a little button that says "Pick your theme" and be able to change the colors that way.
    The white on black....my eyes don`t really like that. I have to squint more than I have to to see the comments. My eyes weren`t exactly well to begin with.
    Maybe a decent, gentle color scheme like what Deviantart has? Pastel blue-ish?

    Well, I like the black background because it`s easier on the eyes than a really light color, but I don`t really like the purple that much. But then again, these colors really do work well together...

    Christ, I`m torn between the two!

    I like Nidonemo`s idea. The purple and black is not too distracting, while seeming sophisticated. Keep the classic, keep the class.

    ya im liking ninjamedjt`s thing. But definately DONT change black and blue. but mix up the sides a little like everyones saying. make it less rectangular and blah. Also chatroom would be awsome. and a most viewed link of the day would be kewl.

    Basically, keep the colors, modernize all the jizz though, and make the side less sloppy looking

    I agree with the other 99% of (commenting) users, don`t change the colour scheme! It`s very unique to this site and less likely to cause my retinas to rupture from overly-bright colours and whiteness.

    Adding other small features to the site would be a good idea. Like features (quote, edit..etc) to the comments without taking away too much of the simplicity of it. And maybe a chatbox/forum? Although I imagine that would take a lot of attention away from commenting on posts.

    I don`t have any major objections to the site as is - the previously suggested increase to a maximum of 1500 characters would be nice. The search feature as is meets all of my needs - not sure why sub-categories would help at all.

    If it ain`t broke...

    aqua bird has a good idea. 1)when people reply to your post, 2)you get notified.

    if the point of this is to keep us from being bored, it should be a little bit more lively. i`m not saying change the colors, just tweak it. there are a lot of really good ideas here

    although i WILL admit that the current blue is a wee bit greyish

    What do you mean IAB is FINALLY getting attension?

    I agree with everying ninja has said thus far.

    Awards would be cool
    -debate award (mAYBE?)
    -WTF OF THE DAY AWARD
    -AWW OF THE DAY AWARD
    MOST ACTIVE USER AWARD (tHIS WOULD (Damn caps lock) hard, but iif takes a very 0devvouted mkember to get it
    -Citizan(member) of the month/year


    DONT CHANGE THE COLORS!!!! That guy at the top is suffocating because of bordom!

    Unless we have color scheme choices...

    More subcatagories, yeah

    More open forums

    forum/.chatroom for registered members


    increase the character limit and maybe piucture size

    moe smileys, like those cool animated smileys

    Yeah, this place ios too rectangukler, we need more shape

    Mix up the side bar

    We need to seem more lively, you don`;t know it`s lively ness until you styep in to a forum or refresh

    Fancy, along the topic of changing things, one thing I`d at least like to see is not only the category of the link (funny, news, weird, etc) but also the TYPE of file it is (picture, video, article, flash, etc) since sometimes I go on computers at work that are old and don`t have sound and only want to look at articles...

    I actually like the current color scheme, like many others have said it kind of defines IAB. Seeing as how IAB is the only online community that I`ve been coming back to for years I would love to see some more interactive features like of course a chat box, member to member messaging, and an actual forum.

    I like Nidonemo`s idea about having user options on colors. I really like the kinda basic black with blue colors of IAB now - hate those flashing, bright, overpowering colors on websites.

    Also agree that the users should get a preview before we decide to say yes or no and it would be nice if you could concentrate more on the options available (ie; chatroom, subcategories). Maybe a MINOR change in the icons - little bit more `pop` to them?

    Just so we get a vote on the actual thing - that`s really all I care about!
