Okay, things are back on track everyone. We need a features/requests list for the new site (which is coming better than it ever has!):

Easier and more efficient navigation (more or less complete)
Updated design (more or less complete)

Anything else you need? :o

Screenshots of mods/translations/emus, perhaps a user-based ranking system for emulators, a full RSS feed, get the news search working again.

I'm sure I'll think of other things.

Speaking of which, the site search needs to be fixed too. And make sure to get rid of any reference to the ZD store.

Ah, the RSS thing and site search were what I was going to mention..I remember awhile back I needed to search old newsposts for some things, and realized the news search is a pain right in the ass. :P

Just did. :) I was able to find, uh, four or so posts I'd made back in 2002, though I recall making more than just those. Then again, I had to put in "search 999 days" or whatever.

Yes. And better 403 and 404 messages.

Peh, comments about something being a "pain in the ass" shouldn't come from a man whose sig advertises a sword-vibrator.

I got the same thing at first, but then I thought of a trick. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

Try typing in exponential notation (e.g. "1e4"). Most programming languages will read in numbers in that form. It shows something like 30 posts by you. I dunno if that's accurate or not.

I found that picture, and thought it was hillarious, so I made it my sig. There's a lot of people here that might appreciate that kind of humor. Besides you perv, it's a vibrating sword, not a sword-vibrator. It sounds totally different when you say sword-vibrator. :P

*edit*
And who said anything about putting vibrating swords in people's asses? lol

Screenshots are a very good idea, it shouldn't be a problem to add.

I think for the rom hacks section, you should give Super Mario 1 hacks their own page as those dominate the list by far. One page for NES hacks, one page for SMB1.
