Does anyone use this anymore?!?
The same topics keep getting locked and reposted, then locked and reposted...

There is good stuff in here, though an update is probably in order.

I have reworked the directory a bit and added some more descriptions for topics.

I made all titles that contain a poll lime.

The news section is now the first section, since it's of a bit more significance.

Edit - I also made a banner logo.

On topic, I think a Vehicle section would fit nicely at #2 or #3.  There aren't a whole lot of them now (3 or 4), but there will be soon enough.

Nice work, X, though I still think a Vehicles section would be a good addition, although maybe between #4 and #5.

Vehicle List
No planes
Fuel Stations
Traffic AI
Driving
Vehicle Damage
Speedometer

are already on the list and

Will cars explode?
Helicopters in IV

likely should be. Also,

Your Questions Answered
The Collector's Guide to GTA IV
The 'Verticality' thread
Real [this] time?
Clothing Discussion
something missing...
A Living City

should probably also be included somewhere in the big list. Keep up the good work, everyone.

My topic "Who need planes when you have ... " must be added in the first post smile.gif

It was mentioned at GTA4.net smile.gif

Good call. I forgot to add the vehicle section the first time you mentioned it.

Added topics and more descriptions.

Word.


A small hiccup in section 12 seems to be stretching the first column out. I'm no HTML expert, but a few tags look to be missing.
Also, another thread worth keeping in the mix is Game Informer: May Issue Typed Content.


I use this Directory just about every time I log on here, and I wish everyone else did too. Thanks again, Runey and X.

EDIT: Just read "a long, grumbling thread..." in the descriptions. xmas.gif Sums it up perfectly!

I've had plenty of time to put towards this over the past few days, so yeah, the directory will undergo a massive update here in the next day or so.

Awesome job, X. That Directory is looking nice and plump. Now if only people would use it confused.gif

Since you spent so much time fleshing it out, I spent a little time "editing" (yeah I'm a big nerd like that)

2.1 - theres a placeholder that looks out of place
6.8 - "the" should be "they" in the 'rags to rags' description
6.11 - "playing" and "a" are need a space in the 'LC media' description
6.11 - an extra "-" left from the placeholder in 'unwanted features' description
11 - "revelation", not "revalation"
11 - "foruums" is misspelled in 'possible new' description
11 - no description for 'we need controversy'

That's all I found.
Yup

I've added some threads to the directory.

XComm, thanks for all the work you've done on this. It wouldn't be nearly as awesome without your help.

Fixed.

I've added about 30 more topics to the directory. All I can say is, I'm so freakin' glad we've locked so many topics. tounge.gif It makes skimming go a lot faster obviously.

In the news section you've named my topic; "What Will Be Comming Up?", whereas it should be What Will Be Coming Soon. Thanks!

Fixed... although I had to use the backup I had saved, so I just replaced the old banner with the new one.

Did you add any topics? If so, I guess you'll have to add them again.

Also, I disabled your signature for the first post. I'm not sure what happened with the table code to cause that. I and someone else did find a hack with the tables about 3 years ago that allowed us to put our signatures above our posts. Somehow that happened here.

Wow, this thing rules!!!! icon14.gif

I see my cellphone topic is in the list, I feel very special!!! biggrin.gif

I'm just dropping by to say that maybe you want to add my topic: "The first thing you will do in GTA IV" to the list ,
that one has been seeing a lot of action lately, and just in case some other person creates the same topic.

Ugh... It seems as though the BB table functions have hit some sort of limit. I tried adding 5 more topics and it all went to sh*t. The odd part is, I always hit "preview post" first to make sure everything is in order and the problem didn't show up in the preview.

I suppose it's time to put that reserved post to use and split the directory up into two parts. So yeah, it's probably a good idea not to add any topics untill that's done.

Also since this thing has turned into such a monstrosity, I'll be adding a hyperlinked table of contents that will allow one to jump to any section in the directory, thanks to the /anchor funtion that I've just been made aware of.

I'll try to get this all squared away asap.

Well that bit of work is done.

See any problems, etc. report them.

By the way, Runey, I'm not sure why The-King put a disclaimer concerning .png transparency when IE7 supports it and it's been out for a long time now... not that I use IE directly. Avant ftw!

Nice use of those anchors! Everything looks (and as far as I can tell, works) great...I especially like the table of contents, but is there a way to make the headings directly clickable? An outlined TOC would also be helpful...just offering suggestions. Anyway, keep up the good work.

Yeah, I could have set it up that way, but that would kinda nullify the second column. Alternatively, I suppose I could make the headings clickable and use the second column for "Number of Topics" in that section or something. Not saying there needs to be two columns, but it probably looks better that way.

And what exactly do you mean by an outline?
