    I was just sharing my joy of having a brand new site design. It's interactive with a live chat, and other features (you can play with those when you get there;)). It would be greatly appreciated if you could post what you think of it, if that's not too much to ask. You can use the contact feature on the site. It was made by another macrumors member, megaquad. Enough talk, here is the site
    http://www.tyui.com.

    Wes, I'm really impressed. The site interface is great! The page transitions are especially enjoyable. No, I'm not just trying to be nice. I really do like the site.

    Only problem: After a while, I wished the car would stop racing around at the top. It was a little distracting while I was reading the rest.

    Not bad, not bad at all.

    So did you do all the flash yourself? What are you incorporating to get the messages and blog? PHP or just text files?

    Nice work,

    D :D

    Glad you guys like it.

    Nobody has worked this out yet, but if you click the "add your quote" thing you can change the grey header text (Under Wesley's Homepage) to whatever you want, for the whole world to see!

    Glad you guys like it!

    Well, if you ask me yeah all by myself :D
    Both pad and blog are made with PHP.
    Msg pad has also these cool features:
    -it automatically converts link to hyperlink.. underlines it, changes color
    -it has bad word filter
    -ServeBot has these nice commands: /country, /IP, /agent, /bot, /info etc.
    -it also has secret command to delete msgpad database :D

    ah, so you did the site not Wes? I'm a little confused.

    I've played with some php/MySQL with flash but not all that much, huge potential there.

    Nice!

    Good job Megaquad! Nice! I think it's a real winner, Wes! Best of luck!

    :)

    P.S. On one hand, I'm wondering: what is to prevent someone from using any of our usernames and pretend to be us on your site?
    Identity theft is an issue, isn't it?

    Re: Nice!

    hmm... but you can come on any chat in the world and put username of anyone from MR. I dont see reason why would someone do that.
    but i think it could be solved with registration..but people wouldnt bother registering for personal blog site ;)

    That's true.

    That's true. What I'm saying is that if I understand the website correctly, there aren't any account options. I could go to the website and enter my name as, GeneR, for that day. But tomorrow someone else could use the same name, GeneR, on the same website.

    Is that correct? Maybe I did not look at it correctly.

    yeah that is true, no account options because this is personal site and i think people are too lazy to register for such thing.
