The vent thing is a great idea, something you may want to look at for future styles (not necessarily this one) is this style: http://www.forummonkeys.com/phpbb3/index.php?style=4 (I'm not sure if linking to something like this is allowed, if not I will remove it). A side menu like that would be ideal for links to tutorials and resources. Food for thought I supposeFrost° wrote:I might as well discuss some of these ideas here as well since the majority of people who check out this style will own gamer related sites..
I've played quiet a bit of games in the past and have been registered on a few popular sites back in the day. What I'm really going to go for here is to make this style as "gamer" ready as I can so the website authors don't have so much work to do to code it to fit their needs.
For instance, I am going to add a few built in sections of the most popular scripts or addons for gaming sites.
A lot of gamer sites use ventrilo or teamspeak, so I was thinking of building the section into the layout and having it ready to drop their ventril/teamspeak code and it works right away.
I need more of the things that gamer sites use commonly, I will customize anything to work, just tell me what it is you desire.
So, in the ventrilo example I was going to have a bar go across the site with these options in a "menu" sort of appearance. When a user clicked on the "link" (Ventrilo) It will scroll down a box with the ventrilo information. I was planning on having about 3 side by side each.
For a small example of what I mean, go to my forum and click on any of the little blue links under the header, you will see the whole site slide down to show the information. I am going to do something similar to this but instead of pushing the site down, it will overlay on top of the site.
Anyway, feel free to show me examples, suggest things like this etc..
