I think for the awesome sig you provide, the submissions should be in catagories such as Projects, skins, and texture packs.
I see some dudes running around with like 56 submissions and only 50 views and im like omg 56 projects but its only skins.
So I was wondering if you could change the sig to represent how many skins, how many texture packs and how many projects you've uploaded, with a total number of views.

Or you could make 3 Seperate sigs for projects skins and texture packs.

Look down, back up. Friday is now Saturday! I need to create the pixel icons and unfortunately client work spilled over into today. I hope to get new sigs & miner journals in tomorrow. Next week, I'll be working on the site almost exclusively. !!

It's just a thought that makes a lot of sense and will therefore become reality.

Could we also change the default mode for the sigs to show the most recently updated submissions instead of the most recently uploaded. I saw skullcandy's sig and noticed that his city of lights was not on his little bar because it is his oldest project, even though it is the most recently updated. just a thought.

Site could allow us to pick and choose which submissions show up on our sigs.

It's the stats that are tricky. Right now it's meant to be a simple summary, but I agree it's too simple after adding new types of content. We'll have to make the signature larger to show the breakdown of submissions. Not a huge deal right now but after servers, mods & articles are added that's 6 different stats. Many of which will be zero, depending on what we are into. Ok, so I could only show stats that are not 0. Hmm, maybe instead of writing out "Projects","Skins","Texture Packs", etc... (takes up a lot of room) We create a mini-pixel icon to represent each. I'd reuse the same pixel icons throughout the site to help make the association. It wouldn't be clear what they mean to those that don't use the site but most likely they won't care about the breakdown until the become familiar with the site . We keep the total submissions + views and list the breakdown using mini-icons across the bottom of the sig. If 0, then text color is black/gray, if 1 or more, text color becomes orange to attract attention. Sig would only need to expand in height by 20 pixels. 16x16 pixel icons + 2 pixel padding. I'll drop the blue arrow to allow the submission icons more room width wise. Maaaybe, make the general sig a bit wider.

I'll think over the sigs.

Captian, homepage will be revised soon. You can click "Projects" in the main nav, to see just projects.

I'm aware that clicking projects filters it, it's just nice to know that the homepage will be revised.



Meanwhile, regarding the sigs, what if you made it possible for us to filter what goes into our sigs, or choose the 4 visible projects? I'm not sure how much work that would be, but I don't think it would be an immense amount. I'm assuming you're using some PHP function to generate the sigs.

Maybe if not this, then perhaps create filters for the home page. I hate having to sift through 6 pages of skins just to find an actual project. While we're on the subject, perhaps it might be a good idea to slightly change up the scoring system.
