Revision as of 06:38, 16 April 2006

Thanks for all the assistance in getting rid of spam x.x; It's been hitting a lot more past few days and I've fallen behind. It's much appreciated. Will get to banning some more IPs ;)

I really need to remember to sign in when I make my edits and such.

Anyways! The queen discography looks rather nice, the only caveat that crosses my mind is that if it were to resemble the entry I made with album art for Audioslave, that it would be a bit hectic for 56k modem users to load. It's only a minor consideration, just something that stumbled into my brain as I was trying to imagine editing the album art in for each album ;) Admittedly, it'd look very pretty. I just might wonder if doing seperate albums whilst having more pages to maintain might still be better?

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Old vs New

I get what you mean. Really, the thing is, I'm correcting one thing, then I see the other thing needs updated as well, so I do that. But, for 2pac for example, there's no way I can update them all, but I'd have a really hard time leaving that one as is. I'll try.

More importantly, I'm curious as to why you like the old format vs. the new? I mean, I know that people have preferences in the album/discography, but why the lyrics page?

The biggest thing I think that templates have going for them is that, if we decided to change the format, add color, change fonts, etc., the templates set us up for doing that across the board, quickly.

In any case, let me know so I can stop updating 'em if you want me to. Seeya, Peter

Ah I see, I thought you were doing it for the hell of it xD
“One Four Love Pt. 1”
Artist: (Various Artists)
Albums: Hip Hop For Respect (2000)
I like the older format because it looks more like it "belongs" there (in its own habitat xD); it just sits at the top nicely instead of being placed in the middle of nowhere, inside the actual lyrics, etc. plus the old format allows for more information without the need for something to be expanded. Eg. compare the old format against the new format (to the right), it just doesn't work with this type of song (probably bad example, couldn't think of anything else with many artists)
I don't know if you can list multiple artists, but if you could, it just wouldn't suit the style of the site and look completely weird. Also the old format is much easier to make, any person could do it, with SSong, I have pretty much no idea what I'm doing xD SSong was a great (unique) idea, but it just doesn't seem like it was pulled off right - it's just not flexible enough to meet the demands of some of the more complex songs (and still look good/natural).
I do agree about the usage of templates though (the color, format, etc. part), I would just like to see it done nicer
I hope you know what I mean, I suck at explaining things (Is this even the right way of answering a wiki reply thing?) XD--268229 23:36, 22 March 2006 (PST)
Update, I found a good example of how obtrusive that template can be: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones:Someday I Suppose, in my opinion, nothing should interfere with the actual lyrics :\--268229 16:45, 25 March 2006 (PST)
