I got bored and am fairly confident in the layout, so I went ahead and moved the forum into the /forum/ directory and activated the front page.

You'll need to update your bookmarks to the forum: http://www.interestingnonetheless.com/forum/index.php is now the forum frontpage, where as http://www.interestingnonetheless.com will take you to the news-based frontpage.

In addition to launching the frontpage, I have added a simple Karma feature for every single article. Basically, at the bottom of every single article, there is a "Karma (X) + / -" text. For every postitive rating the article recieves, it will increment that articles karma value by 1 point; likewise for negative ratings lowering the karma by 1 point.

This is basically just a makeshift way for us, the writers, to get black and white feedback on the articles we write.

As well, it is suggested that you logout completely by clicking this link: /logout.php and then logging back in, since there seems to be some cookie-related problems with moving the forum directory out of the root directory.

So, if there are any questions/comments/complaints, post them here or contact me through email or instant messenger. I'll be online for the remainder of the day to answer any questions/comments/complaints.

Congrats. Looks pretty damn good. The influence of SA is quite obvious too though. Not necesarrily a bad thing, but not necesarrily a good thing either.

If I ever have a creative and humourous brainflash, I will submit an article or a review or something.

Out of curiosity, are you going to be uploading these articles as you get them, or do it on a weekly/daily basis?

Most likely I'll be putting up just one update every other day, until I can get enough people willing to submit news on a scheduled/daily basis. Once I get them from people or write them myself, they'll go into a queue and be put up in the order in which I receive them.

Alright, thanks for clearing that up.

I think I might start thinking of a topic for an article.........

No. If you intend on writing articles on a regular or just a one-time basis even, you'll need to submit an example article to me, so that we can survey your writing ability. If we like it, we'll put it up as soon as possible. After submitting a few articles, if you're interested in being staff and having an account to post news without having to go through us, we'll be willing to do that, but as I mentioned, you'll have to write a few (maybe two or three) articles before that happens.

Yeah. That will come in time. Though, regardless of what happens with the front page, it will always resemble some other site.

The reason it slightly resembles Something Awful is due to the fact that I admire Something Awful, which may be a bad thing, being that the frontpage is currently emulating it to an extent. The articles vaguely resemble Something Awful articles, because most of us are avid Something Awful readers and are drawn to it, due to the fact that we can identify with it (in both style and content).

Oh yeah, and keep this in mind: I AM OPEN TO NEW IDEAS, GODDAMMIT. This is a group effort, so if you want to help make the site "differentiate" from Something Awful, then by all means, help out. Simply saying, "OMG MAEK THE SITE DIFFERENT THEN SOEMTHING AWFUL," then going back to looking at porn or whatever the hell you people do in your free time isn't going to "motivate" me to make changes to the site, both style and content.

Likewise, if the front page flounders and becomes the epitome of suck, I will take it down and revert the site back to forum-only.

Maybe you could implement a thing that lets you choose color scheme on the frontpage, sothat one can have the same colors for the forum and the frontpage.

You know, come to think of it, porn actually generates lots of website hits. We could always turn into some sort of free porn site for a couple weeks and get a bunch of visitors (would we even want those crazy freaks, though, OMGOMG who lookz at pr0n?)

Just kidding, though, and you'll probably beat the shit out of me for joking around, but whatever.

Ok, I had a few ideas....

On the left side, below the nav boxes, I think it may be pretty cool if you had another box with essential forum information, considering that I think the main visitors to this site are forummers. For example, you could include: # of threads, # of posts, newest forummer, and most recent post. Not exactly sure if this contribute much to the site, but it will make it more unique.

If I get any more ideas, I'll give you a hollar.

Might be a good idea. I'll look into it tomorrow. As for now, I updated the layout AGAIN, rearranged certain things and replaced the logo with something of my own creation.

EDIT: Actually just added the "Forum Stats" section in the navbar and it looks good. I like it, since it shows that there are nearly 30,000 posts and 200 registered users.

Thanks for the idea.

Looks great Sandamnit, nice job. And the logo rocks too.
Now, you can try to give the right mouse button some utility, like if you click it, you wont get the normal boring left-click menu, but some quick links like "Forum" or "Front Page".

Ok, well, I have an idea although if it's moving away from SA that you're after it might not work in it's favour. Over the Australian Summer I used ICQ and MSN chat to talk to people and did things similar to what is seen in something awfuls prank section which we could put up.

Also, sandy, could you message me that address for article submission because I deleted the pm but i forgot the address. Yeah...

You should probably tie the articles and the postings together somehow for karma purposes. I don't expect someone wanted to give karma for "I received this editorial article yesterday [...] somewhat controversial." but instead for the article it referred to.

I've been noticing that as well.
