Re: Puzzles

Before you and Rora get too involved in "Duelling Avatars", I would like to give you both (and Insomniac, too!) a chance to influence this website.

If you need more worksheets, more puzzles, better Maths info pages, or any bright ideas as to how to make this place better, then let's  start the discussions rollin'.

(Remember it was you, Zach, who prompted me to upgrade the style of this forum over Easter, and I will try to follow up any other good suggestions as time and resources allow)

Re: Puzzles

So, what are you saying, Rora, you don't think you have any good ideas? Hmm?

I have a list of things I want to do for the website, but I am open to suggestions. Email doesn't work, because I get over a hundred a day mostly spam, so the forum is the best place.

Re: Puzzles

Oh, that's alright then. No ideas is no ideas.

When an idea DOES come along, be sure to post it here, and I will at least have a think about it.

BTW I'm not smart, just dedicated. smile

Re: Puzzles

If you're using AOL, that's why you're getting spam ;-)
If you're not, you shouldn't be signing up for all that porn. :-O
Of course, I'm joking... Yes..

Anyway!
Ideas? I could advise you on how to make your side bar on the main site easily updateable.

Re: Puzzles

The email address used to be shown on the site. There is software out there that spiders the web looking for email addresses to add to spammers lists, and this site has been around for 5 years, long enough to be on every spam list around sad

But this forum is working very well. It is great that many people can be involved in the one discussion.

The only pain is deleting the "less-than-mature" people who like posting offensive stuff.

Re: Puzzles

Why not just change your e-mail address, then? It's easy enough with your own e-mail domain, you can switch from say 'admin' as the start to 'Administrator' or 'Rob' or perhaps 'Zachisthebestestever' and then end in @mathsisfun.com.

Also, on your site, ever considered using 'Frames'?

Re: Puzzles

True, it is easy enough to do that, and then in a years time I will have TWO email addresses that get spammed, hahaha. Oh, and I did think of Frames, but they can cause trouble in certain areas. They can make programming harder, and that is why most sites that use some php pages steer clear of them.

Re: Puzzles

Hm, I was going to ask if you just used the basis of your site as a HTML type file, because that would've been much easier to put the Frames in.

If you wouldn't mind, I could see about looking into making the same index.html page, but using frames instead. Just to see how it is in compairison. I can take all the files I need by just simply saving the page and I could arrange it all by Tuesday or Monday.

That is, if you don't mind me trying it out.

On the other hand, are you using a CSS sheet for any formatting?

Re: Puzzles

I probably wouldn't use Frames, they would give me too much trouble.

I do use CSS, it is a big help.

Re: Puzzles

The main thing I think the site needs is lots more content. Maths info, puzzles, games, the works.

Re: Puzzles

Meh. I'll try it out anyway, to suit my own evil, devillish plans... Or whatever.

CSS is a great help. Infact, my site is based fully on it. I still haven't gotten everything finished and I need to do that. I have been reminded, and I probably shall forget by the morning when I awaken.

Anyway, I'm off to hit the hay, straw or whatever the hell they put in this cage for me to sleep on. Whatever, G'night for now.
