Re: CR State of the Union - Issue #2

Sounds really good, but I think it may be time to revamp the forum look, gotta say, this diahrea brown is getting a little old. I think that maybe you should make multiple options for how the forum looks, with different themes. I think that a black scheme with some red outlines would be a good way to start, or something very similar to what you're using on the rest of the site.

Hey all,

I'm trying to do this weekly update thing to keep everyone in the loop on the "state of CR." This is episode 2 of said feature!  Eventually, I'd like to work my way up to really diving into some of the complex design decisions that I come across on a periodic basis and eventually highlight some of the (scary) things floating around in my head.

This week, though, I want to focus on the past.  Since we're in the midst of a lot of work going on with the site, I prefer to focus on that stuff rather than the abstract design/planning stuff smile

Let's recap the past week:
* Forum bugs should be fixed.  Hopefully no more "noobish" warning messages are abound on the forums
* Deployed new drop down site menus that are (hopefully) cross-browser compatible
* Redid upper part of all pages across the site.  This was a significant reengineering effort that took a fair amount of time.
* Reskinned all "non-logged in" pages of the site.
* Fixed a bug with the West league award watch page
* Fixed a bug affecting the West league playoffs and automatic playoff / bracket handling
* Added "Twitter Broadcast" Functionality


As you can see, I think we accomplished a lot in the way of #2 of our three primary ongoing initiatives.  For those of you that forgot, the 3 initiatives are:
Initiative #1: Improving Sim Results
Initiative #2: Improving the Flow of the Site
Initiative #3: Attracting New Blood to the Site


The plan for this week is to push onward with the site revamp and make it more attractive for new individuals.  With any luck, this will be done quickly so that we can get started on attracting some new blood to CR and have them not throw up in their mouths at the site of a putrid brown site wink

Once the site is in a uniform state, I'd like to focus on the addition of a new league (with incentives for existing members to participate), and potentially comb over the implications of merging the Bird/Kareem leagues into one, once again, to improve the competitive balance in the oldest leagues.

Thanks for supporting Court Rivals and reading the second issue!

hmmm... ok kaz. thanks alot for this "weekly update thing" hmm
