116w ago - Just a quick heads-up to everyone, starting this weekend (not an April 1st joke) we will begin upgrading the vB3 Forums we currently use to vBulletin 4, and through the transition there will be some scheduled downtime while our server cat works his magic!
Once the vB4 upgrade itself is complete, we will undergo another few weeks of work with some minor downtime while porting the remaining modules to vB4, followed by implementing some of your 2011 suggestions to our site. If you have any feel free to contribute them to the thread and we will do our best to make it happen.
Additionally, we are currently seeking a new site logo- if you are a graphic artist and would like to share some design concepts check out this ongoing thread... if we end up selecting one posted we will send the artist a $100 PayPal gift to express our appreciation.
Thanks to everyone who has shared their PS3 News site suggestions and logo designs to date, and we look forward to checking out new ones as time permits!
Stay tuned for more PS3 Hacks and PS3 CFW news, follow us on Twitter and be sure to drop by the PS3 Hacks and PS3 Custom Firmware Forums for the latest PlayStation 3 scene updates and homebrew releases!
Yeah, as I was reading this thread, I was thinking Ajax - would be very useful to load up the latest post in realtime - but it might be a bit heavy on the server (could do the same thing with new posts in a thread, etc). But, it is a good idea worth looking into, may make for easier and quicker replies!
Indeed, AJAX is better than Java. It should be possible that the object itself is loading without the user is doing anything. You can watch nice AJAX-Support at the temporaryinbox at spambog.com, that would be very nice, if that could be implemented. But everything to it's time.
Perhaps we can look into this once all of the less "fun" work is done for the Forums...
