I didn't see any thread already made that's solely for suggestions about the actual site, so I figured "what the heck."  Feel free to post any ideas you have to make the site better in this thread, I guess.  Ideas don't help anyone if you keep them to yourself, you know Tongue



Anyway, something I've been wanting to see something  put to distinguish the newest maps from all the rest.  That is, when you make an update, alongside the table or something just put a *new* or something to distinguish them from all the rest.  This would really help when you upload more maps for a game that already has some.  For example, while the 7th Saga updates were coming in at a regular basis, I had a bit of trouble finding out which maps were just added and which had already been there before.  Yes, I know I could just look at all of them, but this suggestion would save me that little bit of time Tongue



For an example of what I'm talking about, just look here.

You can see what's new because it has the "- (New)" next to it.



I hope you get my idea.  I've pretty much beat it into the ground by now Tongue

I suggested the same thing a long time ago, but Jon said it would be too annoying to have to go back and remove the "new" tags on the next update. So then I suggested he make a forum thread for each update with a list of actual maps that were updated, but he never replied.

With scripting the new thing wouldn't be too hard, but since this is a static site, yeah it's too much work to manually edit those.



I was wondering if Jon could make a page with all the random game title images though.  I like to see the new ones, but to takes a while for them to pop up.

I just look through the source every once and a while.  Here's a screenshot:

It's pretty easy to decipher what the games are, and there's two more sets to browse through as well.  If you want to take a look at them, all I can suggest is to refrest the front page a bunch.  I can't find a way to look at them alone anymore.  You used to be able to just paste the "System/RandomMapSets/whatever.png" into the address bar after http://www.vgmaps.com/, but no such luck anymore.

It's his image blocking code that prevents you from viewing the images alone. I complained about it before, but no one else was having trouble. I just assumed it was because I'm on a Mac.

Ahh, I had forgotten that Javascript can be viewed from the page source; I'm so used to working with server side scripting.
