Default EskimoFriends.com Version 3.0

Ok... so the new site is live... There will be a few teething problems that we'll sort out gradually... but everything should be fully operational... hope you like it!

first of all, thanks a bunch, emmett... for always thiking and working hard to give us the best

about the new site... well, as you´ve probably known already, i´m a big old minded fashion, hehe, so i rather the old one. but this one looks nice. and i like the idea of lisa having her own page of news, lol.

but i do miss our little eskimo community picture.

anyway... thanks again and cheers!

Default Thanks

Hi Verenita,

Thanks - I understand. We're not finished with the styling yet, we'll have a much nicer header for the forum... but the rest of the site is now much more advanced than it was previously...

For the people who will run the site, it's blog-driven, which means it can be updated much more easily and by more people... so there'll be more frequent updates. It's also much easier to customize and add cool new features... We will hopefully be able to keep in touch with everyone a bit more easily now as well, as we have integrated social networking tools like Facebook and Twitter. The site is also on new servers now, with much better customer service should anything go wrong!

For visitors to the site, there will be more frequent updates, a nicer layout (I think), and lots of cool extras that we'll keep adding...

The forum is still pretty much the same as it was... although it's a slightly newer version...

Any questions, just let me know.

Looks great! The only thing I'm missing is a "Vyv news" tab.

Looks really nice. You must put a big link that says "Forum" somewhere though, as it's not clear what the "Igloo" is.

wow... looks super fancy.. i like it. my only thing is that i'd like the stories on the front page to be in full length instead of having to click on "read more". that's me just being picky tho :P

great job! <3

I can bring the tabs back, no problem.

All the other changes sound good too. It's much easier to make changes like those now.

I do agree that we need a header for the igloo and a Vyv News tab. That's all. good work Emmet, thanks for giving us a facelift!

Love it!

How about a photo and video/youtube gallery, too, assuming the CMS supports it? Always found those to be popular features on blog-based sites I've set up.

Great work!

Hey Emmett, sent you a message through your contact form. Would love to help out if there is anything I can do. Although I haven't been super active (in terms of posts or responses). I've lurked on this board for years, and have enjoyed the site and all the awesome Damien resources.

Great work!
