 :piers: Greetings, Merepeople.
I have plans to redesign the Lost Waters website (Link) when my schedule clears up a bit. So I would like to hear everyone's input on the website's redesign. So don't hesitate to post your ideas and features for the website you want to have.

It may just be me, but I think, if it's possible, the C-Box could be improved. Just so people don't have to refresh to see a reply. That's my 2 cents, listen or don't. After all, It's YOUR website.

The Cbox can't be improved unless we change the system. I can re-replace the system we had if Sea allows me to. It works like a instant messanger and is more secured. 

Also note that our website and the forums are different from each other.

I didn't know that the cbox was being used so much. I got to go there sometimes. Anyway, the cbox is a temporary chat room until I get the AJAX chatroom online.

Anyway, what do want to have on the website that would interest you?

AJAX? Guess that will do. Lol.

I don't think there's anything wrong with it. But I agree about the cbox.

Acronym for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. Most advanced websites use it.

Anyway, I'll be posting an unfinished demo for testing purposes. Enjoy. :D

I quite like it so far. The character limit is much better, and there's no ads. Yay :3

Can you change the link to Dora's Cottage to this, Sea? Or are you going to wait until it's finalized?

Probably the latter. I have some good, fond, nostalgic moments from Seabox...

Eh, that might be better for you, but... It's like, half what I tend to need.  I had to split one of my info posts for my signature project into three parts... ^-^;

Oh, I do have a question, though... could we look into getting a spoiler tag?  Not the ones that black things out as though they're redacted, but the ones that actually hide the info?  That should actually really help me organize my threads so that they're not giant threatening walls of text - instead, they're collapsible and read in far more manageable chunks...

Yeah, I think we had those on the old site, but I'm not sure what happened in the transition. Spoilers are a good idea.

Aye, they'd let me collapse my giant walls of text into manageable chunks.  They're far less intimidating that way.  Between learning to use spoiler tags and visual aids, I've been working out ways to make my posts much easier to read for people.

The character limit could use doubling, though...

How about a quork system. We each make our own typing quirk and the site automatically reverts anything not related to the quirk become part of the quirk, like all e's are 3's.

I would type in Seed and it would come out S33d. It may be too much though.

I feel like the forum could have different skins so people don't have to keep seeing the one shade of blue. I mean, i like this color, but it can get boring after a while, you know what I mean?
Yes. It's true. I'm attracted to Males. Now you can all rest easy now that I confirmed it. Now we can all get back to our merry little uneventful lives now that I spouted this pointless fact that I spouted.

Have a GREAT day~
