To put it simply – the site is now migrated to the new Bootstrap-wrapped design. As far as I can tell it’s done, completed, and ready for testing. Well more testing, migrating over the generators required I validate each, and now my head is filled with random.
Next up I’m going to take a little bit of a break because . . . well yeah, this has been my spare time for about a week and a half, and I haven’t had much of that. Then there’s going to be some testing, and finally, migration. Just remember after the migration I’m really going to need feedback!
If there’s one concern I have it’s that right now the site’s appearance on phones is kinda “meh.” It works, but the branding is off and the control panel scales too big. Admittedly I don’t think that’s a huge deal, but still I’d like to make it better.
Now let’s take a look at the site!
First, let’s take a look at a basic content page. You’ll notice some subtle visual divisions and paragraph styles to keep it from being a wall of text.
Now an example generator, in this case the ever-popular Bishotron. I used the same second-line-shifted paragraph design of the generator page contents for this, along with some spacing to really break the text up – quite frankly, I like it!
That’s where I am. So time to take a break, think it over, and start the testing.
Also, I am still discussing how to arrange a community. Right now among the interested it seems to be a mix of Message Board and mailing list. Frankly I’m leaning towards a mailing list at least for now to focus on people who have a serious core interest, leaving the Disqus discussions for casual community. Yes, the contests and other things are under consideration as well . . .
