Dreaming up the new LD4all design...
PostPosted: Sun 24 Aug, 2003  Reply with quote

I'm currently in the process of revamping the site.

My way of doing that is to dream it up smile

tonight i had my first LD in which i saw the new design. Looking good smile

what i post this for is to know from you if you have any requests concerning the new site. What do you miss on ld4all what you would really want to see? What do you really like on the site what mustn't dissapear?

The revamping is a whole project and can take up several months.

I really appreciate any input you might have, so i can use it to improve ld4all.

looking forward to your suggestions wiske

when you implied you were gonna take out some stuff...

surely not the "secret" to making the pictures change on the main page?!??!! that was SOOOOO puzzling!

Hmm, perhaps you should put more info in the main page about basic techniques like WILD and stuff.

I love this place just the way it is. Hmm, but maybe...

...lots more info / links / techniques on the main part of the site. Also you really should have your own link page, not just a redirect to dream.start4all.com. Half of the links on that site are 404's.

I don't really know how you can improve on the graphical side though, they are wonderful. I think everyone loves the graphics on this site.

Are you the artist that drew the graphics?


OOh, if you had the time and space, you should really feature a dream/LDreamer every week or month somewhere.
If I can think of anything else that may improve it or make it more user friendly, I'll be sure to tell ya.

Good luck on the blueprints.
Take your time and get it perfect, I know you will anyway.

i thought that secret wasn't so hard to find, was it really?
seriously i'm thinking of removing that whole picture-in-the mirror thing, but maybe i shouldn't...

i'm working towards a more interactive site, not only the forum, but on the whole site room for input and changing things (like the tip of the day, but then more things like that)

yep, all graphics are done by me, exept the rotating logo at the beginning [well, the logo is done by me, somebody else made it rotate so cool]

yes, i plan on making an interactive links section where ppl can post their own links as well

glad you like the lucid tip of the day... kiekeboe every month they recycle.. you are right, it is time to put in some new ones grin

thanks for the suggestions, keep 'em coming!

I'm sorry, I was being sarcastic about the whole picture thing. You should just put up a section that says "Pasquale's dream art." heh heh.

oh we'd better have something like a rating system so we can vote to erase those porn links people will eventually put up.

You can download my ranking-ladder-scripts (asp) from my website if you have any long list of artwork, photos or text items etc that are suitable for public voting. (But I can't think of any lucid dream related data to rank).
http://www.epicdewfall.ca/laddercode.shtml

how i do it
(2 items from a list are shown at random - a visitor votes for 1 of the 2 random items - of the two, the item that wins, migrates up the ladder in rank one step - the item that looses, migrates down the ladder in rank one step - adding votes is addictive and people don't know how to stop - the resulting ranking order never settles and is in continuous flux like boiling water - but the cream rises to the top)

I use this system to rank my paintings, quatrains, and links.

Also I'm not a fan but I tried making a Buffy-Episode-Ranking-Ladder. Unfortunately it was way too popular and I decided I had to disable this ladder to stop the server from failing.

thanks for the ladder idea..

a dreamart section, that's a good one smile

you have to be more specific whether you are talking about the site as a whole or just the forum, i get confused siiw - the voting system you mean for the forum, right? no? grin

MEH? I was talking about the whole "interactive link" section where it is to my understanding that we post the links that we think are good for lucid dreamers? Is that right? But the whole other thing I accidentally mentioned is good too siiw thank my stupidity for it

My favorite interactive site is http://www.para-normal.com. They have everything (they went to the extreme I think). They have music, photos, comments on recent stories, instant messenger, buddy lists, chess, your own start-up page (customised of course), forum, chat, who's online, member profile of the day (shudders).

Overkill!
Way too much interaction.

infection0: for the links section they will first have to be approved until appearing on the page. That's the plan anyway siiw
