    Re: DEFCON Beta site

    noid: yeah, that bugged me too... An "all-caps" username and user description. This kind of thing can get people noticed, but on the other hand, it can get people noticed.

    What bugged me more was a reply to a 3 month old post that basically said, (works for) "me too!"

    This is addressed in the rules under Old Thread:
    Originally posted by old threads

    There could have been value in the reply providing something other than, "it works for me too," like something new, or constructive criticism on how it could have been made better for the next time a new beta site is created.

    There is a suggestion in the rules under ,"I'm New" that provides this advice:
    "Introduce yourself by making an intelligent first post, asking an intelligent question, or contributing a meaningful comment to a conversation."

    I'd like to encourage you to demonstrate your, "old school," experience and participate in current threads (that are less than 1 or 2 weeks old) with meaningful and intelligent discussion or commentary

    Good luck!

    (Closing thread. The beta was announced about 10months ago and went live over 3 months ago. I suspect a new announcement and thread when there is a major change to the production content or a new beta.)

    As for The Goon Band, I did video record over 1 hour of the Goon Band, but the deal I offered the band was to publish it only if they agreed after they watched it. I've talked with some of the Goon Band members and they have the video I recorded. If they want it published, they will publish it.

    (I really do try to only take pictures and record video for for the web when I get permission from the people involved. Sure. I hear from many people now that anyone at Defcon is, "free game," for taking pictures, but that really isn't respectful and can still lead to problems.)

    I know one other person recorded video of the goon band, and I believe he abides by the same rule of conduct at Defcon and when he take video at Decon, like video of the goon band. There might be some crappy cell-phone video recordings of the band, but I think there were only 2 full-length SD or HD recordings of the goon band at DC17.

    If you want them, talk to the Goon Band members, if they even decided to keep the videos.

    Looks good on the iPhone browser too! The rollover works as well, which is a miracle for the iPhone D: I heard mention in the earlier discussion for a mobile friendly version of the forums, is this still in the plans?

    That's easy. Get Neil to paint it in the same manner. May I suggest a 20-foot high version of the DC15 Steampunk chick?

    (Neil, if this works out, I want a finder's fee! )

    DT,

    Without Microsoft Searchlight, the site will simply not do.

    Well, the sites not bad...but it could be a LOT better. For starters, the site needs more advertisements. Not just something simple like googles advertisements, you need to go all the way with giant, flashy, obscene adverts. You know, something to use up some of my extra bandwidth. Oh, and could you add some kind of flash game to the web page somewhere? I can't go to sleep at night with out playing a good old fashioned flash game. You could also have the site take advantage of some exploits and hack peoples computers. I wouldn't have it use any recent exploits, but something that's been patched for a few months should work. Weeding out the suckers who are working on outdated software will help keep the site running smooth. Plus, it's a site for a Hacker conference, so who can really get mad?




    P.S. The site looks good. Keep up the good work. Now if only I could get my house to look so fancy...
