Site touch up.

By johnboy 13 April 2005 16

In my view the premier styler of dynamic websites in the ACT is Mel from She’s been helping us with plotting out a future look for RiotACT.

We’ve jumped the gun a little bit, but we’ve taken her prototype image for the site header and put in into production along with a few look and feel tweaks. The current look on the site is not a reflection of Mel’s abilities, but we owe her a great debt for helping us get this far. It’s still a work in progress but progress is good.

And yes we’ve added another set of google ads. That’s as far as we’re going with them. If the revenues flatten at the current level we’re goin to throw some good parties. If they continue to rise we’ll be in for an exciting time all round.

UPDATED: Forgot to mention Jazz is responsible for most of the heavy lifting in the revamp.

The _Carillon_ also looks a bit unstable…

Oh oh! The Correllian looks like it’s about to fall down. To the left.

If only…..

Oh and I just want to mention that the first image of the statue and the one of the war memorial were taken by the steev from Thanks steev!

@Kerces, I said that just after I submitted a long post. But johnboy shunted half of it to further reading, so issue solved.

But I’m a fine one to critique web site presentation when I go around posting large animated gifs.

hope you don’t mind that we put the image up so soon mel.
If anyone was watching the site between 6 and 11 last night they would have seen johnboy and I rearranging things quite a bit.

stay tuned. probably more of it to come as I get a grip on some of our admin features

Great work guys, I like this site more than i did before!

Plus the posting mechanism is nice and easy for a lazy ass like myself

What do you mean “Parts of the latest entry can get dropped off the screen by it”? I’ve had no problems with it and I’m viewing the site from a laptop (so small screen). And I used to always have the righthand edge of most comments cut off with the old site.

Good title pic. I’d rather see the vetrical ad box above Archives and Recent Entries and remove the horizontal ad box. Parts of the latest entry can get dropped off the screen by it and that just feels wrong.

Like the new banner, and if the google ads bring in a bit of $$$ more power to you.

Looks fine.

The net nanny at my work flips-out at some of those google links. It claims they are linking to porn sites, which I know they’re not.

I think it looks great, well done Mel from! Oh, and Johnboy too 😉

just representing Canberra through images 🙂 I didn’t think a tree on Northborne Ave would have the same effect 🙂 BTW – Thanks Johnboy! 🙂

Looks good. Bit touristy, but good.

Google ads are a great thing if they help ya pay the bills.
