    Spent some time re-coding some things, which also included upgrading the navbar, which just went up a few minutes ago.

    Let me know if anyone has any issues with how it's rendering, but I've tested it on a variety of devices and it appears to be working properly. Still working on adding some other things but this was the first step. It's only here in the forum right now but will be running site-wide later tonight. :cool:

    And I know it's just a navbar, but there are quite a few things it's built to do, which will include some additional sections that will be running through it. But the immediate benefit was the fact I was able to condense some things to cut down quite a few database queries, which will make things more efficient and prevent some of the errors you've seen pop up recently. I also wanted to eliminate the top alert bar and make that notification less intrusive, so this allowed me to accomplish that and should work much better.

    The images will also update each time I add new game photos, so you'll see those change each week, or potentially more. Just wanted to also jazz that up a little. But this should set us up pretty well for a while I think :cool:

    Lol, it might, but not for the reasons you'd think. A lot of code is gone so the pages should load a little quicker. But that's about it ;)

    That's exactly what I was hoping for. I was getting a lot of errors Sunday whenever something happened that made everyone want to post at once.

    As a further suggestion to mitigate this, may I suggest a big switch to turn off features for the duration of the game.

    ps: the site does seem to be running a bit snappier in this new version. thnx.

    If the nav bar is going to be that large, and continue to follow at the top when people scroll, why not eliminate the other "alert" icon, and add that functionality to nav bar?

    Just a thought...

    I hate it because it is different but gradually I'll get used to it and then you'll make a change and I'll get really irrationally angry and demand that you bring the current one back.
