Bodyshopped Sims Update [Feb. 6th, 2011|11:58 am]
The Day Has Come

Please, if anyone can help with our Donation Run, I'd be so
appreciative - we have a page dedicated to our causes and
motives HERE, if you want to know what is the score. Along
with donating to keep a site going, you would be also getting
a Gift Back, in your Name, any choice of Sim that you like.

Please, we are just about 31% 44% of the way there with our two
donations, I know I'm pleading, and I know that many many
can barely afford the Internet, but if you can pass on a message
about us, that would be so great. I don't think I've ever been
so committed to anything as I am to this silly Sims Site!
Thank you for your Time,



In other news, I'll try and put this behind me and churn
out some Founders for pixel_trade 's February run, and
also a new McStroodles Update [who knows, might
we see spuddlings this time?!] Happy simming, everyone.

A redesign might be able to save you some space. I could help you with that. If I had some spare cash to donate myself I would, but plane tickets are expensive as well as the suitcases etc.

Oh Keely, I fully understand you're saving money - it was one of the reasons why LL30Sims went before, right? :)

The Main problem is that I cannot extend the pages much further than what they are now - If I could lower it by around 500 pixels, then I'd be able to get rid of the "Other Creations" Page, saving some space from the Banner.. but I've mainly cut down on most of the Banners and excess pages when I combined them all. Any Tips would be greatly appreciated!

But I think you're right.. I might need to entirely redo the site.

Why not one banner for every page, but displaying the 2 creators you have on the site (you and Kusti) Sims. Of course always clear out the damn files you have on MF servers....I used to save soooo much space doing that. Let me check out the site and give you some tips. I am sure we could pinch it in a bit.

The only files I have on the Servers are ones being used - I've just realized now I can cut the Old Themes Banner down to get a MB or so back, but it certainly does needs a pinching!!

Just looking at it you could do more with the front page. It's a little confusing in some spots and I am sure it could be streamlined. I would say for now get rid of the Theme page and plonk those Sims into your normal downloads. You could always tag them with a special symbol etc indicating that they are something a little special.

Get rid of the floral header and plonk your header up there. I am sure Kusti will understand about having a joint header for all pages etc. Even though MF hosts it's own graphics they still take up valuable space.

If you remember LL30, I never really used their graphics that much. You could expand the page length (if you have the option) and could fit more on the front page and for your creator pages too.

If I have a hour or so it the next week I'll mock up a design for you. I have a MF account and maybe I can come up with some space saving ideas for you.

Right, I've moved those Sims to "PetchyPage2" as normal sims, they aren't anything special, now, anyway.. should I add the "Other creations" or will that page be too crowded?

I didn't know MF took away space for their own graphics, but knowing that I'll be much more wary of them.

I remember LL30 had individual graphics for the pages, but they were much smaller.. LL30V2 [or was it V3?] was when you had the Vertical Scrolling Creator Names and Graphics to the Side, right? You had Images for Creators, Second Pages, and then themes.. I can't remember it being more or less Graphic Held, actually, please do enlighten me! [T'was a long time ago, I guess..]

A Mock-up of an improved Front page would be excellent, I don't really know how I could improve it, to be honest.. Could you explain some of the confusing aspects of it, and I might be able to sort something out... There always seems to be something I just can't pick up on, no matter how hard I try!

Thanks for your help, Keely, really really appreciated :)

No problem my lovely. After all we did date a couple of nights ago and I got you a very cool book (LMAO). I'll see what I can come up with in between Tiber's nap etc. Tomorrow is out though because I have a playdate to attend.
