All,

As we go through site changes over the next week or so, please let me know what you like and what you don't like. Also, if you have any suggestions let me know what you'd like to see.

Thanks,
Laz

Thanks Laz. We really appreciate the efforts, time, and money (sweat and blood too!) you put in *applause*

The recent posts, pop. topics, and top poster sections are good additions. However, like Junpei and others pointed out, you might want to fix them below or above the forum? Having it as a sidebar increases the width of the page and now I gotta sidescroll as well as up/down Crying or Very sad

Thanks a lot dude.

I noticed the older banner is back which says "Cherry bloosoms falling".

Right and Right ....

I'm going to be spending some time this evening trying to get things straightened out so please forgive the mayhem Smile

I went ahead and put the older Bigger banner back .... just to see what it looked like. Ill put the smaller one on.

It's Saturday night about 8:15 EST ... so there may be some weird things going on if you're checking out the forum while I'm making changes Smile

Laz

Is it possible to add a birthday message at the bottom of the page? I've seen it on other forums. Just a simple "Congrats to..." box. This would require a date of birth field in profiles so I dunno how doable that is.

The discription for She and Her cat is "Discuss this short about a cat and his human." I think owner instead of human would be better.

Hmm I dunno about that one actually. I think Chobi referring to the woman as his human is part of the style/feeling of the story. Very much from the Cat's perspective - it's meant to be like they're equals, he looks after her as much as she looks after him. That's my take anyway.

Also, the description under Manga/Books has a capital "E" where it should be lower case. Sorry that one's been nagging at me since I joined lol.

I agree with Nick, while owner may sound better, human is actually more suitable. She is, in fact a human and it's from the main character's perspective who is a cat.

Also, "owner" seems kind of harsh. Aren't Chobit and Her more of friends and equals rather than an owner and their cat?

The only thing I suggest is maybe making the banner clickable (link it to the main page). I'm really used to clicking banners wherever I go and I think it's kinda practical ^_^
