Out of the Blue

More tweaking to the site here courtesy of Frans, who is, as I've pointed out before, is the Man, with a capital "M." The menu on the left now features the return of the "New on Blue's" section to find local copies of screenshots and such, and we also now have an insert showing upcoming events from our LAN Party List. Additional thanks go out to 2 too (yeah, I couldn't resist), as he cooked up the new menu headers for these sections.

To 2 Too Links: Thanks Ant and Mike Martinez.
Play: Hunted Forever. Thanks Jay is Games.
Links: Top 10 Worst Video Game Movies.

The last line of text in a comment is at the bottom of the comment window, without any / with very little "padding" in between - it looks abrupt, and a little weird.
Not sure what you're getting at... which comment 'window'? 'padding in between' the comment and... what? The signature separator?

There's already some padding in that spot, 6 pixels of it, to be exact.

Minor issue (may be a matter of preference on my part):

The last line of text in a comment is at the bottom of the comment window, without any / with very little "padding" in between - it looks abrupt, and a little weird.

Otherwise, I like the enhancements made to the site!

Anyone playing Far Cry 2?

I am, and it's a blast. Bought it from Steam. Activation was simple....

I don't know if this was mentioned before and I missed it...but I see the signatures are now updated to old posts if you make changes. Nice one!
Thanks, that is indeed the new-feature-of-the-day. W00t
there could be links added to the top of the list so we don't have to scroll down to click "Later/Earlier".
Done.
Better yet, could there be more per page, like a minimum of 25 or more, user selectable maybe?
They were already doubled from the original 5 per page a few months ago. Whether that is "enough" depends very much on the combined length of the posts. 10 seemed to work nicely, 25 is definitely too many. Selectable ain't going to happen, I'll see what Blue thinks of an intermediate number.
And could there be page #'s to jump through, rather than Later/Earlier.
Yeah that'd be better, and consistent with thread pagination, but will take some more time.
Search feature would be nice too, as sometimes finding something specific like mod info or links someone posted awhile back can be difficult to find.
I agree, I'll see what I can come up with.

If you were still in need of a conclusive verdict on the fact that most movies based on games suck, TIME has spoken.

Most? I can't think of a single game-based movie that doesn't suck.

Wondering if on the User Information page - http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=userinfo&user=19048&boardid=1 - there could be links added to the top of the list so we don't have to scroll down to click "Later/Earlier".

thanks for all the updates "The Man (not German) Frans".

That Elvis smiley needs more contrast. With the dark blue background here, you can't really make out the hair.
Yeah, and the Mr-T one suffers from the same problem, they were designed for light backgrounds. But I'm no artist so I'm not going to touch them up. Anxious

Wow TIME is getting into the top 10 (or shall we say "bottom 10") lists. If you were still in need of a conclusive verdict on the fact that most movies based on games suck, TIME has spoken.
