    Default How about...

    A section on the homepage to show the latest development status...?

    Something like:

    Dev stage: Alpha test
    Status: Bug fix.
    Details: Correcting error with sys driver.
    Lst update: 15/09/04

    This should completely remove all the "when is new version due" posts.

    Good idea ?

    Thinking is good..

    However this could be easily be integrated into some Project Management System (PMS). As this site uses PHP it would be quite simple to integrade it into the site..

    Even easier it is if you are using a PHP-based PMS..
    Anyways.. I really dont like design... kinda standard desing for a phpBB that everything is based on... but i guess no1 will bothere to write own webpage from the scratch. Most people prefere using ready-to-use scripts..

    Alexei: back in 2000-2002, we indeed used own "from scratch" website.

    Beside from the fact that you will never find "THE" design
    that satisfie you AND the rest of the world, there's an simple answer:
    did you noticed that our page is, let's say, popular?

    This is not an italian fashion-show, its a site about Protections, Daemon-
    Tools and related stuff. Honestly, I like the sites the most that doesn't
    overload my brain with tons of unwanted stuff.

    Do you know what most sites lack today? CONTENT! It's that easy,
    most Admins forgot about what's really important.
    Take a look at our website for example: everything is just a click
    away. The forum has good usability. I guess most of our users
    agree here.

    Maybe one day we will complete rewrite the design and use even own
    CMS-System - before you ask: yes, we can code that ourselfes

    Believe me, at the end of the day its all about traffic and usability.
    In that point phpBB is very successfull, hands down

    Hehe.. i just ALWAYS code myself as Its my part-time job
    Gonna get my PHP Certificate soon... but still... i just dont like that all portals have the same functions because of the phpBB and the portal mod...

    Sure its easy to use... and you guys have much more things to do.. but for me its like this: the web page should never use someone elses scripts -- want e forum: write it yourself, want a CMS -- write it yourself..


    Cant design? Get a designer..

    Thats how it works for me and i like it that way.. coding is my hobby and my job

    damn, what are you waiting for? Needs an emulation prog? Code yourself :mrgreen:

    just kidding. Honestly, we can design, as we have several (!) designers in our
    team - it's just (you mentioned it) that we have no time for a GOOD own
    cms and beside of that, I disagree with you in the point that everything
    must look different. Understandable from your point of view. But then,
    why are we all using windows, hmm? because sometimes it's good to have a
    standard. BTW: I get 20-30 mails only about our Webpage today, imagine
    that!
    Guess what? 90% told me that they like not only the design, but they also
    like the idea that they can use our site "out of the box" because the
    "look and feel" is similar to other sites.

    I hope REALLY that some day THAT is what designers learn ->> USERS first

    but we're getting more and more off-topic now, agree?

    my time is precious (didn't I already mentioned that? :mrgreen: ), however,
    I like discussions like this one, too.

    You can write me via personal message system here, so we can discuss
    further about our different point of views
