( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

That's appreciated and you're welcome.

I'll make an update to that original node and let everyone know /that/ specific effort was abandoned. Briefly, *(and I could detail this in a longer form guide for anyone interested in pursuing a similar endeavor) my failure was approaching the project from the top-down rather than bottom-up. Steady redesigns done one nodelet to section at a time, within certain parameters has a far better chance of getting implemented than any sweeping, heroic attempts.

At the time I also didn't sense there was enough support for the redesign. I don't know what hard number enough was to me then but for every quiet bit of praise sent via private message, it seemed another, louder node was posted publicly against the effort. The indifference or opposition was apparent to me from the moment (I think it was Locust?) suggested a redesign, through to the last bit of work I did over a year ago. It may have been an overactive imagination on my part but I've been a graphic designer long enough to know when it's time to stop trying to sell a presentation.

I'm not saying that is still the case or if it should even matter what the loud opposition has to say but those two points were enough for me to get back to my own freelance work.
