Annihilation.info wish list

Post by Perrinoia » Tue Apr 21, 2009 12:17 pm

This is my list of suggestions for the website, as apposed to all the suggestions for the mod itself.

I wish that code displayed in the code tags did not use word wrap, you've already got a verticle scroll bar, can't be too difficult to add a horizontal one too.

I also wish that the code tags had syntax highlighting.

And lastly, I wish that line numbers were displayed beside the code block, but don't get selected with the code... Perhaps a background image that has line numbers displayed behind the code would work up to a certain line count...

Oh, one more suggestion, not related to the code tags this time... I wish that each user could choose a background image for their posts... It would have to be low contrast, and tiled, perhaps approved by an admin or selected from a list. And it should persist when your posts get quoted. Unless the quoted text is modified.

Also, there should be a "Solve World's Problems" button. Right under the "Get Out of Jail Free" card.

I approve of some of your suggestions for the code tags, but I doubt we'll be seeing background images. We don't even have sigs here...

I know, but they were taken away because they took up too much room, background images don't take up any room that isn't already in use.

If content was a problem for sigs, it won't be a problem for background images, because you'll have to select one from a list of forum provided ones, or upload one for approval by an admin, much like Avatars are done, except even better since avatars don't require prior concent from an admin.

I like the simple layout of the site. More images would aggravate me.

it only works for php, which is close enough to tribes script and c++ and java. Just need better colors, and to make syntax highlighting default instead of having to type code=php or code="php" or what ever i typed.

Smother them in marinara, or just poke them out... Then you only have to get over the wiggling, and the fact that it is trying to eat you too...
