An important note for testers
Casablanka
If you're reading this, that means that you have been invited to participate in the initial testing phase of the new Witendofi. We hope that you can give us excellent feedback that will help make Witendofi an excellent website for Nintendo fans everywhere.

This website has a simple story. Sometime after Sliker reopened One Click Zombie, Alain wanted to put his newfound experience to the test and try his hand on another potential Nintendo website. After informing me of the work he was doing, I proceeded to help him with some of the more challenging behind the scenes work. Even with my help though, most of the work that went into making this website can be attributed to Alain, and he should receive most of the praise (or disapproval) related to this website.

What you're seeing right now is the result of one week (and 2 days) of development. While this may be record time for an iteration of OCW, we are still quite a ways away from a finished product. That's where you come in. All of you have been invited here to verify if we are on the right track. What we want is useful feedback. Do you like how we omitted signatures? Do you like (or dislike) screenshots? Please let us know.

We hope that this iteration of WTF/OCW will be the best one yet.

So far I like the look of things. The design is very simple and clean. I would have liked signatures, but it would probably clash with the look of the posts now. I like the screen shot thing. I imagine it might just turn into the random image board that we had back in the day. Oh and one thing did bother me though. I'm on a cell phone for the next few days so I'm not sure if this is the case, but it looks like avatars will be circles. I'm not a huge fan of that. I know G+ is doing that too.

awkward.

I'm also not a huge fan of circular avatars, but my avatar fits inside the circle anyway so it is a moot point... sort of.

I am not sure why usernames are italicised in topics. Did they look weird next to the "about x Ys ago"? If there's no real reason, my petition is that they be changed to regular text.

EDIT: so nested quotes don't work

Circular avatars look amazing, but they are harder to use. Pretty much every single image editing program out there uses squares, and most people's avatars already use squares. So I guess I'm going to echo the resentment against circular avatars.

Although the design looks noticeably worse once you make the avatars non-circular.

I don't think they have to be circular. I think they're okay rounded to about 5px. I'm not -entirely- against circular avatars, but I think it's silly (to some degree) to enforce them. Of course, if you don't, you end up with people using horrible generic, square, non-transparent things.. So i don't know

I just tested them. They still look nice rounded. 8px or 10px is a nice amount.

Also, to me the quotes look like you're saying somebody's name, just before an unlabelled quote box. Maybe move the name closer to the quote box, and embolden it?
