Add your requests here:

4:[Schlachter]> Change Clock to a more fashionable one. (Analog JavaScript-based one coming up... give me a heads up whoever requested this) by [sammie h!]
6:status> The new yellow tone against the grey is very hard on the eyes, it makes the grey appear more purple and doesn't look good. I feel it would look nicer if the grey top border (With Mainstuff, your house etc), the grey on the right side bars (Wiki comments, poll-comments, etc) and your elfpack page (Badges, Treasury, description etc) were a different color, maybe tan or brown or something other than grey. [0-Aki]
8:status> Replace the donor snakes with something better; suggestions? Contest? [Stephen]
9:status> Cut back on the blue glows around everything. Less is more! But don't completely remove them. [Stephen]
11:status> Upgrade side border ivy with higher quality. [Stephen]
12:status> Fix logo to fill space better. [Stephen]
Picture examples for [Stephen]'s requests <URL:stuff/aj/15609/SE0001.png>, <URL:stuff/aj/15609/SE0002.png>
13:status> Links on mainstuff (bright green) and hover links (grey) are unreadable against a light background, please make them darker. Visited links on mainstuff are still blue. Gief consistency.
14:status> Hide .TERMODATA 'cause it's borked (and why would people care about it even if it worked)
15:status> Change the remaining grey boxes to match? (.STATUSTABLETOP, .DATA, .CALENDARATSTART, .NEWSTEXT)

Completed

0:[Schlachter]> change general font color to #006600 [Stephen]
1:[Schlachter]> change background color of alternating side boxes (& other places with bright green) to #AF56AF [Stephen]
2:[Schlachter]><URL:stuff/aj/15609/1361227164.png>[Stephen]
5:[Schlachter]><URL:view_forum.html?vnr=963&forumnr=1> change purple forum controls background to regular white
6:[sammie h!]><URL:stuff/aj/15609/1361229478.png>
3:[sammie h!]><URL:stuff/aj/15609/1361228986.png>
13:[kittykittykitty]>change guard box to green
14:[kittykittykitty]>Update top border to pretty one
7:[sammie h!]> Remove the animated donor borders -- no animated images! [Stephen]
10:[sammie h!]> Make the blue glows a shade of forest-like green, should match things better. [Stephen]

Here is an example of how this works:
Take a free spot (please be descriptive, don't worry about length & do NOT change the "status" tag) & attach your profile ID to it if you wish crew members to contact you about your request:
2:status>I want everything to be so green it hurts! [Schlachter]
A CSS crew member will take over the task & make it bold to show it is in progress:
2:[Schlachter]>I want everything to be so green it hurts!
When completed, the crew member will move the task to the "Completed" section.

If you are somehow unsatisfied with the result, do NOT re-post it in the requests section. Contact the crew member & make the request via a PM that you are unsatisfied. Your help is greatly appreciated with this task & our thanks knows no end! Please don't forget to advertise the style sheet if you like it by linking to it like this: Install Dynamic Elfpack Stylesheet.

2013-04-26 [sammie h!]: I will try it when I next get on. :)

2013-04-29 [Schlachter]: [kittykittykitty] seems to be getting the hang of CSS like she was born for it XD
Just remember to get yourself all 5 major browsers to test in when you make changes.

I also need to train some Javascript girls/boys... this seems to be picking up VERY quickly & soon there is going to be a huge need for it. We could possible coordinate over skype or otherwise for some quick demos/training (PM me) maybe on a weekly basis (these demos can be uploaded and viewed by others) -- I WILL HUNT & KILL ANYONE WHO MAKES FUN OF MY GERMAN ACCENT THOUGH!!! D: XD
Does anyone have any art for me for the app or otherwise?

2013-04-29 [Stephen]: We're currently lacking in artists. [0-Aki] is a pretty good artist, *cough*andhehasthispageonwatch*cough* so maybe he'd like to help out. As long as we don't overload him with endless requests, anyway. (:

Skype sounds like a good idea.

2013-04-29 [Schlachter]: Hah! Sure... I'll try not to give him all work sent my way XD!!!
I don't give you my word XD

Okay, this is going to have to materialize then in the coming few weeks. Or I can do an initial release on the Android platform with horrid graphics... then we can worry about correcting them after.

2013-04-29 [sammie h!]: I think it would be better waiting for it rather than an initial release, as it may put people off of it. :)

I can't get skype. :(

2013-04-29 [Schlachter]: Maybe... well, I can try to make some infrastructure where a dev team could go and test it out first?

Seriously?? Why not?? Scotland Yard has you on a close-watch for posing as a mustached bad guy? XD All joking aside... SERIOUSLY??

2013-04-29 [Faith.Hope.Love]: Umm... if I knew, had a little idea, what art you need, my arm might be able to be twisted. Heck, I might even help you to twist it! lol

2013-04-29 [Stephen]: Seriously?? Why not?? Scotland Yard has you on a close-watch for posing as a mustached bad guy? XD All joking aside... SERIOUSLY??
That'd suck. o3o


Let's all do the twist. *dances*



Seriously speaking, it would be uh.. like the Facebook app, just Elfpack themed. :D? (No smartphone atm..)

2013-04-29 [sammie h!]: A friend of mine who is an app developer for Android said she will test it out for you. :)

2013-04-29 [Schlachter]: Last I checked the Facebook app source code was not free...
neither was it's artwork.

[Faith.Hope.Love] well it seems like the Facebook app does something that most people are used to (& Stephen obviously loves it to the point he will dance for it)... would it be possible for you to replicate the look & feel/user interface of the app in terms of images?

[sammie h!] Sounds good... I'll let her have at it around 2nd week of May-ish...

2013-04-29 [sammie h!]: Ok, will you send me the link when needed so I can send it to her through a dm on twitter or text? :)

2013-04-29 [Schlachter]: Sure thing!

2013-04-29 [sammie h!]: Thanks, it's just she will be away that week. :)

2013-04-29 [Schlachter]: Okay I'll send it the next then.

2013-04-29 [sammie h!]: Ok, thats fine, i may be able to get some others to test it to. :)

2013-04-29 [Faith.Hope.Love]: I'm probably asking a stupid question here, but can I see this Facebook app from my computer? :P

2013-05-02 [Schlachter]: That is a good question... unfortunately, you probably can't without setting up a simulation environment. If you're up for a painful few hours, I can walk you through installing the software to see it on your computer...

2013-05-23 [Deg]: I understand you guys are working really hard on this! Sorry I haven't been active in quite a while, school was really getting to me and drawing my attention away. I have more suggestions, though, and would like to get back on this!

Can I submit requests above, or am I seeing that there are no open spots right now?

2013-05-23 [sammie h!]: Just submit it by adding to it x. :)

2013-05-24 [Schlachter]: Feel free to add more slots seriously... we'll get to it eventually...

2013-05-24 [Deg]: Alright, coolio.
