Yeah, totally missed that one.

Took the liberty of making these two favicons if we want to use them.



We can have a vote and whichever one you guys want (if you want either of them) I will email the .ico file/s

Yes, Favicons are great. But have you noticed that Firefox's bookmarks mix up favicons occasionally?

I went with both suggestions and made a black background and a crimson background with OKG in them. I tried with the lowercase "g" but design-wise I didn't like it and used a capital instead. It's a pain when working with something that is only 16 x 16 pixels and trying to make it look good XD

Saif I think Fury was meaning a calendar with actual okgamers/members events on the calendar. Example: it would be great to actually look at the calendar and see the funhouse monthly or Hybrids Halo 3 tournament on the calendar.

We have that, just very few use it. Just click on calendar and it will show you everyone's birthdays and events if someone puts one in (i.e. the Stillcon event this month is on the 20th and you can click it and it takes you right to the post. It all just relies on the person and linking their event to the calendar.

Im working with the calendar deal off and on this week.  Im trying to see if i can get it to have additional "required" fields. Seeing how the Calendar API in SMF already has forum posting capabilities. So give me a little time and I bet i get it working with out error-ing out on me.

Holy mutha freakin sweetness Batman. So what sort of fields are you wanting to add? I have never used the calendar function myself so I don't know all of what it can do.

Thinking about the calendar, I think the reason so few people use it is because it is not accessible through a post to the forum.

If you actually go to the calendar and post the event, you can have it posted to the forums, but you cannot do it the other way.

Perhaps we can set that up.

Another thing I am going to do with the site - front page variation testing.

Some people have expressed the fact I should push the Tourny links down, others say higher, etc.

So - I'm going come up with 3 versions of the front page for testing, etc - that will be swapped out and studied.

If anyone would like to specifically make suggestions on what I should do / cut / etc - post them for that discussion to be had as well.
