The main page of Qbasicnews.com, is obviously, quite outdated(other than the news). I'm working on improving the behind the scenes way of editing the site so I can keep the site more up to date. After that is finished, the projects section will finally go up with the new news posting system.

If you have any comments, suggestions or complaints/etc please email me or post them here.

A suggestion: try to be more coherent between the main page design and the forum design. It seems like it's easier to modify the main page than writing a complete skin mod for phpBB, so, while you're working on improving the behind the scenes...  :roll:

Just that.

I know, I defintely want to get rid of the standard phpBB2 look. I'll hopefully find a theme to match the main site and the forum, so it does look nicer ;-)

I've seen tons of premade schemes in the phpbb2 site... I think there are many which look terrific. I am really sick of subsilver :D I see this skin everywhere :D:D:D

well *I* like the skin, as well as the QB news front. :|

Keeps everything nice and calm.

edit: you might want to fix http://qbasicnews.com/images/lessonfinished.gif , however.

Oh crap! I forgot all about it! Heh, sorry wildcard (if you remember you asked me awhile ago to help out, I'll have to talk with you about that).

For everyone else who happens to be reading this, we were planning awhile ago to change the design back to the old on that magus had when he owned QBasicNews but with a few tweaks. These plans might have changed however. You can view what I got done (only the main page) here (http://www.qbasicnews.com/tempdesign/).

Of course, I should ask first if wildcard has found someone else to help out heh. :)

Yeah I've been trying to speak to you online, but we're never online at the same time ;-)
I'm very much still needing your help. I'll setup the old forum to discuss it easier.
