If you haven't already noticed, there are some changes here and there on the site (blog and forums).

Jim and I are working on getting the site ready for the upcoming season.

So if you notice small changes, you're not crazy, that's just us. :unsure:

You might also notice some things that seen incomplete, its probably us just testing things out.

Feel free to let us in on any ideas while were working on the site.

Yeah, I've noticed some small changes and I thought they were just things I haven't noticed before like the icon with the arrow (->Forums|The Lakers Nation -> Front Office -> TLN Announcements -> Site Changes Being Made)

I got an idea, dont know if its possible but why not.

Maybe a small live scoreboard in each game thread or on the front of the site. Powered by AM570, if they have something like that on there site.

Guys, guys, guys, you NEED to get ESPN The Bottom Line.

Here's an example: http://www.broncosforums.com/

It will load up in the middle.

i love the rotating "ads" its a better use of space.

"the machine" and "lakers talk" seemed to be shunted out of the way though. . i would run into those only by accident

Noticed on the blog, the jersey sides are a hell lot of a darker color, not sure if it's optimum or not, but it may be too solid of a dark color for me at least.

Its a jersey change on the background. Those are the Sunday whites, while these are Purple aways.

Using the Sunday whites for now on the blog, as a test.

Don't like it.... the jersey sides are too dark and are a distraction to the blog/forum.

Please change it back. :clap:

I'm not sure if it's possible, but you should make it or schedule it so that it changes based on the jerseys the lakers are wearing that day. For example, on sundays make it the sunday whites. Away games have the purple and the home games have it be yellow.

I'm not sure if that is even possible while being automated.

I think it looks great though. Really improved on each piece blending in well together so that it seems like one big long piece.


Also, did you make changes to the avatar requirements?

Mine went away, it was a GIF and it was hotlinked from CL. I figured that you just took it off because well, it was CL, but then I tried to upload it from my computer and it said I didn't have enough posts per day for the while I tried to upload.
