Good morning, good afternoon, and goodnight.
« on: September 11, 2004, 12:44:07 PM »
OK, so this is a little tardy. I've spent the last week trying to think of a witty introduction, so here goes :

Hi :)

I'm hosting for a friend at www.badkitty.org - however, if you want a look, bear in mind two things :

1) It's not the sort of thing most people would be interested in.

2) Two words, if you look at it from work : "Career Limiting" ;)

Besides, it's not finished yet. I'm kinda embarrassed at its current state ;)

WELCOME!!!  :yey:

Hey, you have a menu item called "Off Topic", LOL!! Well, you sure fit in nicely then with the "Chat & Stuff" forum, cuz that's every Loonies' middle name, LOL  :o  :D

What is the website supposed to be about (actual cat-type animals, or an adult-oriented site)? What does "BadKitty" suppose to refer to? I'm guessing from your :wink: , it's more adult oriented, but I've been wrong before, LOL  :)

Have fun and enjoy the forums!  :thumb:  :love:

OK, at the risk of getting this thread deleted, it's adult-oriented. I fancied doing a Java-based CMS, and a friend of mine, MstrssBadKitty, wanted a site. It's not going to be visually explicit, but rather full of stories, experiences and other useful information for people in the...ahh...alternative lifestyle ;) "Off-Topic" may not make it into the final version of the site, but I put it there for non-D/s stuff like rants and general comments.

Any suggestions on layout and style would be appreciated - I'm a programmer, not a designer. I'm aiming for a more classy look and feel than most similar sites (which generally seem to be designed by ppl still living in the mid-90s). It's also my first attempt at a CSS based layout, so bear with me :)

Oh - hi Pete :)

You might want to post those questions in the 'My websites and creations' section of the forum.
Dont worry about it being an 'adult' site, as long as its legal it will be ok to run that.
When its progressed further I will alter your above link to say it contains adult content if you haven't by then  :thumb:

I would use rich, hot looking colors like Reds/Oranges with Black. Those colors would stimulate the mood for a site such as this.

Don't use Blues, cuz those are colors that suppose to instill calmness, tranquility, etc. You want to get people hot and bothered, so Reds/Oranges are the colors I would   use.

Here's a site with color palettes to help you with coordinating colors:

Thanks. I'm going to experiment with some different colour schemes then post a poll for people to look at different stylesheets.

I try to put words like "not work-safe" and "career-limiting" wherever I post the link - if someone's giving me help, I don't want to get them fired ;)

Busy *life* actually - but I'm back now :) The site's back up with a slightly different colour scheme and a different logo. Let me know what you think...I'm still not too impressed with it, but I'm a complete dunce when it comes to design, so go easy.

I even made it compliant with XHTML Transitional.....aren't I a good boy? ;)

Please edit your first post to indicate it's adult oriented to  save those who don't want to expose themselves to that sort of thing from going there. :D

That's precisely what I meant by "career limiting".

Garvey - there's nothing on there *yet*, because the owner of the site doesn't have all the content finished yet. Also, I'm trying to get design and technical suggestions from people, and I don't want to offend their delicate sensibilities by having dirty stuff appear on their screens ;) But don't worry. If textual smut's your thing, then there should be stuff appearing in a few weeks.
