    Lightbulb Main site back up after short down time

    Which is technically accurate... kind of... in fact, in archaeological terms the 4.5 years that the main site has been offline has passed... well, practically instantaneously.

    But I can see how folk might have got bored waiting.

    Sorry about that.

    Anyway, consider this a beta relaunch of the main site.

    The registration/login/admin side of it is still to come and there might also be a few issues.

    Oh, I know for a fact that if you're on mobile device with a short vertical screen then the bottom items in the navigation won't be available.

    I'll fix that... until then just turn the screen. That should work.

    I also just realised that you can't click back to the main site from the banner. I will fix that too.

    On a side note, looking at the news page, the time gap is obvious. We can call it the "dark ages" (no historical records) haha

    Didn't expect to see this today!

    Well done, Foxy! Glad to see this back up!

    EDIT: Actually, Foxy. Somewhere on my computer is my old wallpaper I submitted (As Vagrant Logic, of course) for the first anniversary contest waaaay back when. It's not great by even my own modern standards, but it'd be good to put up for completeness' sake!

    Where can I send/post it to get it up there in the DL section?

    Just go to the site root, Al: http://www.wipeoutzone.com/

    Hybrid Logic, if you just attach it to a post I'll get it added to the downloads section.

    It kind of struck me today how retro/old fashioned the site is. The whole structure of it just betrays that it's a fan site from the Y2K!

    I don't know where I thought I was going with it at the time - I just knew I wanted to build something because I loved WipEout 3SE so much.

    Oh, also, I'm aware that on certain tablets there's a weird border round the banner image. I'll fix that tomorrow.

    Easy tiger!

    Right, that's the mobile navigation working a bit better and a link back to the main site now in the forum navigation bar.

    Can't get rid of the orange bleed-through around the main site banner image that's appearing on some tablets.

    I reckon it's due to the willy waving animation I've done there. I could remove it, but I like it.

    Ha ha! That was why I went for a subtle refresh. I have accidentally uploaded the page header with the link to My WipEoutZone in it and now I am away from the computer. Rats. Nobody click on that. Bad things will ensue!

    Hey Foxx,

    Did u want to add Wipeout Central to the links page? The wiki is a lot better now than it was 5.5 years ago

    Here it is, Foxy! My WZ First Anniversary Wallpaper entry (As Vagrant Logic).
    Honestly, I think Wamdue always had my vote for this contest. Attachment 10461

    Looks great Fox!

    The new layout at the top left does keep messing with my brain though haha (Having what's new on the right, instead of left, will take some time to adapt )

    For the records page, would it be a lot of work to add an extra filter for speed classes?

    I actually had a class filter in at one point, but the problem was that not all games have all the classes, which meant updating the tracks, teams and class selectors each time you changed the game.

    I decided the responsiveness of the interface was more important than filtering by class.
