Nonstop2k Spring Clean Up

by samcera on Thu Nov 29, 2012 12:47 am

Hey everyone who is still here :) Some changes are taking place to make what is left of this place a bit better than it is. Here is what's happened so far:

Forum related:
- Removed uncp forum, posts moved to general music forum (unused forum)
- Removed supporters forum including all posts (unused forum)
- Removed nonstop2k team forum including all posts (unused forum)
- Swapped the positions of the offtopic forum and the nonstop2k contests forum (contests forums are grouped now)
- Removed the profile comments (who was using that anyway?)
- Removed profile views (see above)
- Removed the friends on profile (we have facebook for that right?)
- Removed the NS2K Contributors group (redundant group, as members of this group are not longer active)
- Removed all moderators apart from Ameyah (there is not much to moderate and he's the only active mod)

Site related front end:
- Removed the donation script (it wasn't working properly anymore)
- Removed the links underneath the Nonstop2k main button (links to the hall of fame, contests and downloads)
- Removed the downloads section (guess no one needs 5 year old wallpapers right?)
- Removed the synth presets section (again yes, this time for good. It was hardly used in the past few months)
- Removed the soundset upload from the upload page (outcome of the above)
- Removed the RSS feeds (not many people where using them and they showed MIDIs that were not approved yet)
- Removed the MIDI overview page. MIDI main button leads to the archive now. (redundant page)
- Increased number of last posts on the front page

Site related back end:
- Removed lots of mods/scripts that we're already inactive
- Cleaned up files on the server (still more cleaning to be done, but it's heaps better already)
- Changed the way about, history, disclaimer, etc pages are generated.

There's more to be done, even new things to be added. Hope to update you on that soon. :)

I know you probably don't want to spend too much time on this, but I think the Serious Sounds Network's new forum layout is pretty rad http://www.serious-sounds.net/ You could do something like that. Just a suggestion though lol. I actually like the basic layout of this site because it makes finding things a little easier than a menu like serious sounds has.

Thanks for the suggestion! I like that. I am currently reworking things, even that design. If I have enough time I might even implement it :)

I'm living in Auckland now and it's spring here haha, can't wait for my 2nd summer to start by the end of this month :)

The design will take a few weeks I guess, I'm still getting all the SEO stuff to work flawless. It's amazing how much rubbish urls there exist now, I want to get rid of those first. I'm slowly getting there....

Yes still here and will hopefully be here for a while too :)

And I'll try to fix those bugs too. The strange thing is that I never have login problems on my local copy. Only on the server. Same for the random error.

More changes:

- changed the url structure (removed the /community bit, looks cleaner and nicer without it)
- changed the forum/topic urls (no more viewtopic?id=223?t=343 or something)
- added canonical urls (avoid duplicate content in google)
- changed the way the new midi files and midi charts pages work.
- removed the 'middle number' check. seems like a hard one to solve and doing more bad than good.

still more to do... any bugs or issues please let me know :)
