Good news all McDonalds lovers: from the above
brochure from McDonalds in Thailand, it seems that McDonalds
is now really healthy food! ::grin::
Stumbled across my home node? Then let me know what you think of this. I'm sick of PHP Web Forums-type software. Not because they're written in PHP, but because they have hundreds of buttons and silly little emoticons, no nested displaying of threads, only support for old-style moderation etc. I want to make the ultimate web forum software (in Perl). Here are a main list of features / design goals:
If you're interested by this, let me know (/msg me)--I'm looking for people to work with me on this project. I'm planning on releasing the code under an open source license but I'm not sure which one.
- Usability and effective displaying of information are the top priorities (no silly icons).
- Community based moderation system--a combination of the Perlmonks and Slashdot system. The moderation system would reward users giving their posts good subjects and assigning categories (see below).
- Arbitrary "categories" can be set up by the administrator (e.g. a post might be specific to a geographic location) with a set of values (which can be either 'any', a specific domain etc.). The value of this is that a poster can quickly describe their post and these categories can be used by other users to "filter" posts.
- Nested displaying of threads.
- Optional read-only XML-RPC and NNTP interfaces.
- Easy to install, relying on a minimal number of external modules (or will package modules in a lib dir).
What is up with web DUHsigners implementing their own ridiculous scrolling controls? Non-standard GUI controls are a very bad idea, and Jakob Nielsen thinks so too. Non-standard scroll bars rarely offer all the functionality of a normal scroll bar, and perhaps most importantly, cannot be used with a wheel mouse! This is so annoying! Also annoying are sites that require you to manually select a language, for example easyJet. Have these designs never heard of the HTTP Accept-Language header?!
