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?

Do we really need the second column? I was thinking something like:

Introduction
Welcome to the Directory. It was created for two purposes:
1 - To gather notable topics and make them easy to locate for your reading pleasure.
2 - An effort to reduce highly recurring topics.
Notes
• A lime Topic Title means the topic has a poll.
• Tip: Use ctrl+F to search for keyword(s)
Table of Contents

01.
News/Info

02. Trailer Discussion

03. Location Discussion
04. Vehicle Discussion


13. GTA4/neXt Forum Index by meta187

Except anchors instead of links...but outlined and clicky like that...

That's some nice work, Geomy. I didn't realize you had edited your post and reworked it further.

I kept the second column and made it 'Description', and indented all sub-sections.

Now if we can just convince Runey to use your banner instead... that's ace. icon14.gif

The original iteration of "I was thinking something like..." didn't really turn out to like what I was thinking, so I played with it...tables are a lot more work than I thought, but I think I have the hang of it...maybe next I'll work on anchors sarcasm.gif . The description works well, and the indents are a nice touch. If you want a header, I can work on something better, I threw that one together for the one-column-table-o-c.

Yeah, a new header would definitely be nice. Nothing against The-King, but I'm not too fond of that "pinheaded" screenshot of Niko. lol.gif The artwork is much better suited for this, imo.

I'm also half tempted to change the gold font to silver to reflect that of the IV logo. Any thoughts...

BTW, here's the /anchor /jumpto code if you didn't know, Geomy.

CODE
[jumpto=#part2]Go to Part 2[/jumpto]
[anchor=part2]Part 2[/anchor]

Yeah, I caught fred's post in The Network forums, but putting that to use is something different. Again hat's off to you and Runey. for all this. Here's a better(?) title header. It's bigger anyway...

Excellent, Geomy. I added your banner, changed the color to silver and made the numbers gray like that in your outline. After 9348 updates, it looks pretty good.

My Greek is a bit rusty so someone double check...

'Grand Theft Auto will contain only one city, Although it will have brief (vits) to other well known places in the GTA world. Niko will do undercover work for the police for missions 18 - 26. It will go wrong when he lets a "close friend" leave while he was ordered to kill him LCPD they will make it hard for Niko for missions 26 to 34, even giving Niko 2 wanted stars for stealing a car. There will be women and Niko will be romantically involved for most of the game. The sex feature is out. There will be three types of air planes, all very small, although they will feel very nice to fly. 7 types of helicopters. Parachutes are also out. This game will be harder to complete than others, but is 3 missions shorter than SA. Kent Paul will make a short appearance. There are 13 more types of guns, tanks are out. There will no be health cheats, although there will be armor cheats available. Niko's (cusoin) "dies" only to come back and stab Niko in the back. This gives you two options, kill or forgive. This will effect the outcome of the game. END.'

Sounds like your standard BS, only this time in Greek.

For some reason the header takes FOR-EVER to load. I re-uploaded, maybe one of these will do better.

Ok, thanks. I've not had the time to rummage through the last 3 weeks of topics and I don't know what happened to Runey... but I'll try to get this thing back up to speed asap.

Semi-updated. Sorry, I've been busy and let this fall behind. Still have to look over about 35 pages of topics... at least I know most of them will be locked. barf8bd.gif

Could my "questioning" thread be added. The directory and my thread kind of go hand-in-hand. People may be too lazy to even look through the index, so they can just ask for quick response.

Thanx my friend. It is the only thread I' ve made that actually survived past 5 pages!

As for this topic, there HAS to be a way to get peoples' attention to see the directory. But that'll never happen. The best, and most drastic, thing you can do is actually divide topics into sections like you people have done. Like when you go to a thread about SA or something, you click on a section about cheats, or a scetion about general discussion, and so on.

Maybe something like this, with an orange pin, so it's always on top, and highlighted so it's hard to miss.
I don't know about splitting up the GTA IV forum. "Official New & Info" and "Other" is enough for now.

Sounds good. All ya need to do is increase the font size...

The "splitting" idea is too much. By the time it would be finished, GTA IV would come out and everything would have to be redone.

Anyways, the directory is very, very organized and well done. Is there a way the actual directory can be reduced in size a little bit. I just think the page is a little too stretched for easy use. It's my opinion, so ya don't have to care. biggrin.gif

Go to My Controls>Board Settings>and then Number of topics to show for each forum page, and you can change it there.

@geomy: That's a great idea with the orange pin and always being on top. icon14.gif

All Right! Im back, I just haven't had the time to sit down and work on this. Sorry about that.

I think some of the old topics can be removed, like ones that have been answered now.

Runey, if you could find whatever topics you come across that should be added, could you just put them in a reply? The code can get screwed pretty easily, and since I've added the anchor tags, it can only be updated via the backups. In other words, you can no longer hit edit, select all, copy, past in text editor, and update it from there. The anchor tags get converted into html jibberish.
