Thank you for this wonderful (and wonderfully informative) post, ThyneAlone.
I've already sent a (lengthy) message to themanagementteam, so I won't bore people with my ramblings here. Suffice it to say, most of my points were in regard to formatting, text, and layout, but I hope they find it helpful. I can't wait to see what they decide to do with the site, and in the meantime, I'll keep mulling, see what bubbles up to the surface.
I have to say, I love TJ's idea about the videobox and favorite scene with the explanatory blog. What a great idea. I'd love to know what his favorite scenes are and what he sees in them or appreciates most, whether it's his own work in it or the work of one of his colleagues.
I do think, layout-wise, that it would be good to put a little more space in between his picture (at the top of the home page) and the videobox, maybe put the 'welcome' paragraph in between so the videobox is distinguishable and set apart as important on its own merits, if that makes any sense.
As I mentioned privately to Steph, I think it's fantastic that TJ is getting involved in this site and inviting us to give our thoughts. I appreciate the Management Team and the work they're doing, and am gratified that they're not only including us but also actually listening to our opinions and ideas. Class act, all around, you people.
TJ, I greatly look forward to reading your answers to the interview questions, and to seeing your new photo shots. Thank you so much for taking that time.
And no matter what new pictures you take, do NOT take away that marvelous photo under Shots, the eighth one... the one where you're standing, looking down at the skull. I love
that photo; it's so contemplative. It's modern-looking yet reminds me of Hamlet. It's simply terrific and definitely my favorite. Don't ever get rid of that one. Promise me. *GRIN*
