This place needs a good shake up. Firstly, the design itsn't right - the graphics in the header image never worked, and I never got around to replacing them. And though the design scheme with the overhanging header looks neat in some respects, the forum itself absolutely needs to fill the user screen, rather than be crushed in the center for higher res users - where the tables are easily knocked out of sync by over-large images. So: re-design required. However...this place was originally conceived to work as a network. I nearly succeeded in that, running the place from 2 domains - chronicles-network.net for writing and this community, with .com for the books. Never fully implemented properly though. In fact, I'm going to drop the concept of network and run from a single domain. But if this place is no longer going to be a network...then why call it the "chronicles-network"? In fact, as this place is now so completely divorced from my own "Chronicles of Empire" site, then why even chronicles? See what I'm thinking? I'm thinking this place needs a complete reinvention of itself. I have some ideas in mind - new site name, new domain name, new design and colour scheme... ...but I would like to throw the issue out for members to discuss. What's broke? And where do we really need to most improve?
