Things they are a changin!

Postby Brian CC » Mon Aug 25, 2008 10:40 am

Over the next few months you are going to start noticing some changes around here. I am in the process of trying to convert the board to the newest version.

Also the site is going to change it's format somewhat...yep we're going to enter the world of the blog.

No more stories on the front page from the forum...instead we're going to start producing stories from talented fans like yourself. I am going to be looking for a few good men or women to help us create the best fan based Canucks blog on the net.

Do you have the talent to write? Have a lot of opinions? Then we're looking for you.

George's outstanding history database will remain as will the popular blog of Tom Benjamin and of course the message board.

I have a lot of work ahead of me, and a lot to learn so I hope you will be patient with me! The first priority is to get the new board up and running so you at least have that to keep you amused while I pull out my hair on the rest of it :)

So kick back and relax and get ready for the new Canucks Corner...it's about time I cleaned this place up!

WOW !!

Change is good !

Any chance you will be able to incorporate different skins or colour schemes ?

The Nuck colours from last year certainly spruced the "joint" up, IMO.

Keep up the good work, Brian.

Down the line perhaps different colour schemes will be an option, but for now getting one done will be more than enough on my plate.

Change is good - keep it coming!

Themes based on the different jersey colours over the years would be (after all the important changes, of course).

Well I am getting pretty close to the look of the new board. I like it, but what do you guys think?

A few more tweaks to come as well as:

- Making it so links open in a new window (Puckhead)
- Tweaking the graphics and colouts a little to be more canuck themed.

I will then concentrate on the rest of the site.

Looks good and works good! I'm glad to see the names back on the left where they belong :D

Good luck with the rest of the changeover.
