Not a lot to see just yet, as I unfortunately was too ill last weekend to do any work on the site and ended up behind schedule. However, I've uploaded the new site layout which should give you a small taste of whats to come in terms of new content! This weekend I should have enough free time to get everything finished, namely the showroom and guides! So stick around and wait and see what we shall soon have to offer on SSRG, I'm sure there shall be something to interest you!

Looks cool so far and I like the new layout and apps. However, three things:

1. I did some testing with the m68k Pastebin, and it actually works, however, on submitting (I choosed public btw), it led me to this address, http://localhost/pastebin?testinglolz092840, which didn't show me anything.

2. You were using the SVN version as a Sonic 1 disassembly? At least ADD the June 2005 disassembly (and use the ASM68k version please). I'm sure I'm not the only one who dislikes this version. =P

3. To the tables you could add this: http://sonicresearch.org/forums/index.php?...ost&p=17015

That said, amazing. =)

Selbi: Stop yer moaning, it's a disassembly isn't it? =P Then again, when it comes to disassemblies, I often prefer the 2007 Sonic 1, as it's labled enough to know where certain things are with less uneccesary research, but not filled to the max with macros' and equates.

On topic now: Ahh, I see the front page has been updated twice in one morning, someone's doing a great job I see.

Well it's different, but i suppose i'll get used to it. Unlike Youtube's brand new crappy layout, which is TERRIBLE. But the site still wont work with IE for me :)

The layout seems to get messed up in Chromium :/

EDIT: Either Q made a quick change after I posted or this build of Chromium has a bug, the layout changed for the better after refreshing.

That happened to me in IE, but fixed in firefox.

Yeah the IE and Chrome issues were down to a missing doctype tag. IE also had some issues with the navbar which has now been resolved.

@Selbi: Thanks for your comments. I'll work on the 2&3 tonight, however the PasteBin I was able to fix quickly and should now be working.

This site (not page =P) was made for Firefox, there aren't any bugs for it therefore. But since other browsers like IE and Chrome work a lot different, there are some issues with them.

Well I can see the "Showroom" thread is locked for the mean time, I'm asuming it'll be linked to here eventually, which would be a decent idea. As most members seem to be more interested in the board itself, it would make sense to have links to areas of the main page, but in clear view where they can be seen on the board.

Sorry about the delays, been busy with some other stuff lately and I don't exactly have a massive amount of free time! Looks like I'll be busy this weekend too but I'll try my best to get the Showroom/Projects finished as soon as possible.

It has been set offline and will be replaced by the project section. We had a few issues with uncontrolled hack-uploading (most people where submitting simple palette hacks). I think Hacktube should stay open as archive though (read-only, no upload possible).

Maybe this way we could have stricter conditions to meet when people apply to put their hack on the Hacktube.

That way simple palette hacks wouldn't pass and we would have a better line up of unique hacks in the archive and in turn it will also either make uber noobs give up or make them strive to be better so the hack can make it on the list.

Well hacktube is pretty much dead, I will be putting it up as an archive though. 90% of the "casual" submissions were of such low quality that I doubt anything will be lost by this change.

Fuck hacktube. Because of that feature, SSRG went down the shitter because this was supposed to be the only thing on this place. Too many stupid hacks were posted and as a result, this board suffered as well.

There needs to be a lot of work done on the SSRG and I did talk to Qjimbo about a few things (notably cleanup and getting rid of staff members who have been last seen more than 6 months ago).

Oh and if anyone went to my now-dead site and there was a feature that had to be closed due to spambots, expect that to be on SSRG some day, when all the recoding is done.

Yes, that's true, infact we assessed that a long while ago, the problem is, "what" work needs to be done on SSRG? So far no one has given a valid answer, quite possibly because no one has an answer? OK Yeah, stuff is being done on SSRG, but it's having minimal effect (Though I'm aware that it's not quite a complete update).

Is QJimbo the only one working on this site currently? Because I think we'd benefit a lot more if we had more people, who could help get work done on this site other than just simply pitching ideas, I would offer myself, but I don't have the knowledge of how message boards work internally.

I have to admit that even though I am only just a member on here, I agree with SOTI on what he said on some things that should be worked on the site. like for instance on what he said about most of the members that has joined and didn't even come back here in like 6 months (2 years in my opinion) should be removed if they are not going to be doing anything here in the first place, at least that's what I think should be done.

Making sure it works in Safari/Chrome (they both use webkit, meh) is feasible. No one, and I mean no one, should be forced to make a site IE-compatible, but if you must I suggest the strongest bottle of liquor you have on hand.

Nobody had by birth, it's something everyone can learn. =P

On topic, more staff would just drag us more into the point where we don't want to be: Too many staff members. What we need is to find out who are the correct persons, not who may be the correct persons.

Now don't get me wrong Q, but I think, the project supervisors can do more than just projects. Why not something like a non-forum staff (main-page stuff in general)? It's just my opinion, but I definitly think that would help you out. I know you are a busy man, I know you don't want to spend your whole life on this site, so why letting other people assist you?

Just an idea, not a reproach.

More people should be offered to help actually. There are too many staff members on SSRG. Some aren't coming back and some aren't around because this place is a ghost town. Time for some cuts.

I'd love to help any way I can. I'm sick of this place getting absolutely no new content.

May I also suggest better quality control for Hacktube? I've seen way too many pallete hacks.

Hacktube is no longer available at this time, it shall be replaced with a Projects section and will be fully functional in due time.
