The new I LOVE X is ready.

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
A bit earlier than planned, here's nuILX.

You'll have to register again to post. Some things are different, including the links at the top of the page. Some things are new, like Poll threads. Some things are completely gone, like Blog view and Trackbacks.

Some things are completely unchanged, like the Question/Answer format, and calls to ban Louis Jagger.

Because this is being run earlier than we expected, there may be some kinks, and some stuff might not work as you expect. There's also a need for polish in places (like the stylesheet!). But until we can see how well the basic stuff holds up, the code will be frozen. Give it time!

For the next few hours, the front door will still be shut to googlers and co. Get to the site
at http://www.ilxor.com:8080/ILX/

Discuss this on the new thread at:
http://ilx.wh3rd.net:8080/ILX/ThreadSelectedControllerServlet?boardid=40&threadid=52356

Shakey Mo Collier (Shakey Mo Collier), Wednesday, 21 February 2007 19:35 (fourteen years ago) link

no. bring back nothing. it honest to god is barely even readable with the style sheet turned on, if you disable it, as Ms Misery suggested, it's practically A-OK all around.

but I don't want to have to turn CSS on and off and on and off to use ILX and the rest of the internet. just get rid of the stylesheet altogether.

xxxxxpost to Keith : I have managed to register from my work computer this morning, so all is well. I wonder though whether I will be able to access nu-ILX from home (I had trouble posting on certain threads on old ILX from my home computer because my address had been caught up in an IP ban on someone else. It wasn't much of a problem as I don't often post much from home anyway, but if I am now going to be excluded from nu-ILX completely at home, I will make a sad face).

resumo impetus (blueski), Thursday, 22 February 2007 12:38 (fourteen years ago) link

1. I know. I welcome all attempts to help!
2. There's a balance here between server-killing super-search and hard-to-find little search. Still it's better than what we've had all year, which was no search at all!
3. Not gonna happen
4. Maybe in future, yeh.
5. This is a per-user thing, and that's bad voodoo for the cache system, which is where the speed comes from
6. See above. I could make something static, I suppose.
7. Actually, incredibly resource-intensive. Used to kill old server, even after turbo button pushed.
8. Yeh, I know. It's a per-user thing too though (see above). A default set like ILE/ILM should probably be put there. For the rest, browser bookmarks will have to do in the short term.

I am liking the speed, tho.

I'd argue in favour of an old-skool link in the top-right corner, when you could easily jump from ILE to ILM. Maybe a ModRequest link as well.

We know why this is, and will fix it over the weekend.

that's great news.

fwiw, i access ILX from three computers. I dont know if this will be any help or not but:

Computer A: Laptop. Primary computer. Can not access nu-ILX when connected through my office network but can access nu-ILX when on wifi at home. This computer lets me go ANYWHERE on the internet. It is a work computer but I am usually not blocked from anything. I have tried with firewalls both off and on.

Computer B: Desktop at work. I use this computer less than 5% of the time. It is on a completeley different network than computer A. I am in Hawaii but my IP shows up on the mainland. This computer wont let me go anywhere near myspace, youtube, pr0n, etc. I CAN access nu-ILX on this computer.

Computer C: GF's laptop on wifi at home. Can access Nu-ILX.

i have registered and changed my password and succesfully posted.

as far as design, just make the WELCOME TO I LOVE EVERYTHING smaller, for starters.

also, tracer OTM wrt how much faster everything loads. i think sacrificing trackbacks and personal settings and search functions and stats is worth a faster board and no poxy fules. not having the LATER function is a major bummer though. but a faster board will come in handy when ILX is doing a 900 post thread on the red carpet at the oscars on monday morning.

stet: thanks for all the hard work you put into this. seriously, knowing that Andrew basically washed his hands of this place makes me realize what a pain it must be keeping it going. I think jaymc is right that you didnt really "unveil" nu-ILX in the most thought-out way but you dont deserve all the fuck-you's you're getting. part of the reson we like ILX is because it runs on home-made code and not some shitty looking stock bbs with colors and avatars and only seven posts per page. i know nothing about web design but i do know that.

love,

grady
