what's going on with qdb.us?

well, the code which has been here for 10+ years largely unmaintained has fallen into a state of disrepair, due to php version upgrades, to the point where it will take me more than a few days to update.

in the mean time, won't you please try out this ui i've been working at for a couple of years?

it should work with your browser, and i've tried to make it relatively friendly.

some new features, but as previously, no registration is required to write, and your ip address is not displayed publicly.

let me know what you think, please?

How about win2k with the old yellowish QDB colors :D Or maybe a mirc-lookalike?

I'm cool with it. It's weird for Bash and QDB to have the same look anyway (and weirder with Bash also calling itself QDB)

Mind kicking it over into a nighttime mode ( or high-contrast if one must ) as default?

Otherwise looks fine, floating windows are a nice touch

Thanks for the suggestion. I will work on adding that.

At the moment, there is one site-wide theme, which can be set globally for everyone.

Actually, anyone can do it with a signed setconfig token :)

Nice to hear you are working on it, keep up the good work! If you don't mind some constructive criticism about the new layout, I have a few remarks:

- For starters, the shaded windows are a nice touch, but I do think you can spend the vertical real-estate a bit better; the title bar is now a copy of the first line, making either of the two superfluous, and I'd suggest playing with the margins and padding, tone done the shades a notch, and make the reply/flag font size smaller, to make everything a bit more compact
- Every comment box having a different width makes the layout a bit, not sure what the word is, restless?
- I would also suggest taking a look at the color scheme; there are some very good tools and information sites about how and why to pick color schemes for websites.

That said, getting the site back up and running is of course the most important thing :) So I'll repeat myself: Keep up the good work!

What do you think of this layout: http://irc30.qdb.us/index6.html

It's actually much older, but I sometimes like it better than this table monstrocity :)

I've taken down the imported quotes, because this engine can't handle that many entries at the moment.
