    GateWorld GateWorld 2.0

    GateWorld readers,

    Our Web site will be receiving a major face lift a few months from now. Now is the best time to post suggestions about what you would like to see and what you'd like not to see in the new product.

    Some things to consider: Should any particular section / feature be updated? Should something incidental be dropped? More episode summaries, etc?

    The main page (index.shtml) will receive the biggest makeover. Some folks have begged us not to touch it, but this current design has been present for a couple of years now, and we simply must rework it to conform to our present goings-on -- mainly to accommodate the sheer number of features we so regularly kick out at you now. We've been fine-tuning the new look with the inestimable Gilles Nuytens, and it looks very, very sweet indeed.

    Already several new ideas are on the table to make the site more navigable and up-to-date. But in terms of everything big and small, let us know. We're listening to you!

    NOTE: NO FORUM-RELATED SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE

    First of all, I don't want the menus to be flash (sg-1, atlantis, franchise, etc.)

    Second, more exclusives

    Third, remove the Transcripts from the Features and add them to the Articles Menu (then I can access them faster)

    Fourth, promo archives (Showtime/Syndication/SciFi), now that the MGM's/Sony's SG-1 site no longer offers them (okay the MGM' (UK) site has them on an old section that is hidden, but I can never remember where find it).

    That's it for now, I'll post again if I think of anything else.

    The movies section (under franchise) seems useless, in my opinion. The only thing under Stargate (the movie) is pretty much a list of cast and a producer comment or two. It seems to me that this might make more sense in the episode guide. As for the second stargate movie, there's been no news on it in something like forever. I think there should be something on it, that place just doesn't seem right.

    Yeah, well, that's my only comment, so...

    Maybe different options for website themes that users can select. Even if it's just a change of color-scheme and images displayed I think it would be a fun feature. Make sure there's a Ford theme.

    By the by, what we are looking for is suggestions and wish lists for the main site, not the forum. Thanks!

    the section that list what epsiodes are airing that night should be moved on top and srtech long and wide and have for example

    monday tuesday wednesday thursday friday saturday sunday

    have a screen cap and title of epsiode under each with out having to click on the day of the week to see what epsiode is airing this week so people can see what is airing the whole week at one glace (hope that made sense )

    move the ad to the bottom if possiable or the side


    skins love that idea

    also the gateworld thing on the upper left you should get more imgines in there stuff from all the shows example the bomb blast over atlantis really nice visual stuff like the banners you have here
    http://www.gateworld.net/linktous.shtml

    another thing you should have a section saying if it's member of the casts B-day


    if i think of more i will be back

    Personally I like the main site just the way it is . However I do have one request: if you do end up removing the episode guide links, please keep the BSG link on the main page. It's easier to access that way and unlike the others there's news and interviews, etc. Also, while I don't watch Lost, I would imagine current Lost viewers would want it to remain as well.

    It drives me batty that I have to go into each individual blog to see when it was last updated I don't mind clicking on a "Blogs" link, but instead of the page just listing who's blogs are available it would be nice if we could also see the date of everyone's last entries

    Have to say that I love the main site, and that I'm sure whatever new face you put on it will soon become my favorite.

    Just wanted to echo NowIWillDestroyAbydos to avoid Flash ... there are lots of us still on dial-up or who access the site from work or public computers that won't let us download the plug-ins.

    We won't be using flash. We may use GIF to do a transition in a certain part of the page, but that would be it.

    Yeah, if you can brush up the blogs section so it's easier to know when folks have last posted, that'd be nice.

    I think skins and server-side or PHP includes would come in useful and pretty-- that is if you don't already use includes? Space-saving at any rate.

    Also, I think it would look tidier if hovering over the SG-1, SGA and other shows' links on the menu at the top didn't bring down the menu-- it always seems crowded to me that way. Clicking on the banners to access the different shows is fine, though. In addition to which, I think perhaps the fade-in-fade-out effect (example) would help with the crowding-of-the-eye difficulty I frequently experience on the main site.

    Other than that, I can't really think of much, unless there were to be a gateway and certain header includes that would offer alternative resolution views (since a lot of people do still use 800x600 rather than 1024x768, and I know people with even higher resolutions than that).

    I would like to join with the posters who have asked for some sort of sign that the blogs have been updated.

    I think there should be a Section on the site or in the forum where people can request a Banner, Pic or Sig to be made to the specifications and then other users can view and make it for them.
