I continue to make substantial site tweaks as the end of 2007 draws ever nearer. I'd like to have almost everything finalized by the time 2008 arrives, since I have big plans then that will likely keep me too busy to do much coding.
Tonight's work is as follows:
1) Forums now display in a broader scope. The left column has been removed so that there's more room for content. That brings the forums morein line with typical forums without sacrificing the critical right column where the latest reviews and other interesting content displays.
2) Cheats can now be categorized by type: code, password, secrets/easter eggs, unlockables. Those types will be divided up on the pages so that it's easy to find exactly the cheat you want. Some slight tweaking may follow to make things easier on the eyes, but some would say there's already been a huge improvement.
3) On a related topic, cheat tables will now display properly in your blog (before, the site's HTML automatically eliminated those all-important extra spaces), as they do on the main site. Additionally, you can now click to edit your content right from your blog, which you couldn't do before.
4) Users who are permitted to submit screenshots can now do so in batches of 10 at a time, at least until such a time as the server groans under the weight of so much incoming content at once. That day may never come. Either way, for now you can quickly submit a bunch of shots if you prefer that method to the one I prefer (submit > Back > browse > submit > Back > browse... repeat).
I'm sure EmP is wondering why there's still no HG Mail outbox, and the answer is that designing that feature is giving me a lot of difficulty. I have tried recently, but it just didn't turn out well again. I'm not sure when I'll make another attempt, but I haven't forgotten. Honestly, we may never have an outbox feature, or it could come in a few days. I just never know with these things.

I am most excited for this feature.

o.o Poor EmP and everyone else with thousands and thousands of cheats.... They'll be up forever fixing those...
Also, thanks to whoever went through and fixed most (if not all) of my cheats. I know I didn't do it... o.o

I haven't decided yet if I like the "wider" forums. Maybe it's just because I'm not used to them. Either way, the news about submitting screenshots is fantastic -- yeah, it was really tedious before.
