how come there are no links on the game pages to HOL
and is this going to be like lemon (only with more games) where anyone can write a small review and/or info, comments etc on each game page ?

and how come no one has commented yet ?

I've added a HOL button to the game entry pages. I meant to do it before but I forgot! (I was also thinking about putting the full HOL entry in its own tab...).

You can add comments, rate games and submit reviews.

The link section has been updated following feedback from Kitty.

Would it be worth adding 'EAB (English Amiga Board)' Facebook page to Amiga Lore links?

If it is then here's the image



Description:
Amiga Retro Computers. The 'EAB (English Amiga Board)' facebook page is a sideline to the more popular EAB forum regarding the Commodore Amiga retro computer.

Our mission is to provide general light information, basic technical advise (hardware and software), popular Amiga orientated websites, special events that may be of interest and anything else that may lie within the realms of Amiga Computing/Amiga Emulation.

And the link http://www.facebook.com/pages/EAB-En...70812422949781



Thanks in advance Cody

Please reconsider keeping the banner across the top visible all the times and making the actual content scrollable. It really makes the web page unusable at lower resolutions like on the pandora for example.

Hi, Just tried to read the Elton Bird interview and found the screen was almost impossible to read. My view is pictured below. The screen is 1280 x 1024 (which is the maximum resolution available on my NVidia 8800 GT card).



First of all, I don't want to know how to get a better screen resolution for my setup. I want to use what I have but I want to be able to see more. Most of the other interviews look fine, and take up 2/3rds of the screen, this one takes up just 1/3rd. This means the interview is very hard to read (imagine this on an Iphone!)

I can't help feeling that this is just a technical issue because of the photos etc. Then again, it might help to reduce the title bar section at the top down from 1/4 of the whole screen to about 1/6th or 1/8th so that it gives the main content plenty of room for the future. Compared to most sites (look at Lemon Amiga) your logo is MASSIVE and this room could be used for a secondary navi-bar (which includes a radio perhaps). The blank space next to the search bar is also a bit wasted considering all those items could be squeezed into the navi bar above...?

Lastly, even if non of these options are suitable, I'd certainly suggest it is possible to move Eltons photos and intro blerb into the actual interview section as the first entry, so returning the available screen space back to 2/3rds at the least.

Hope you don't mind a comment at this stage, it might save you time later when the site becomes packed to the gills.

BTW, AmigaPD.com was just about to email Elton Bird for an interview, you beat us to it.

Thanks for the feedback. I've incorporated the intros into the interviews as per your last suggestion.

I'm also going to think about screen space and viewing the site on smaller devices.

If you want to you can use the interview on AmigaPD.com - unless you want to ask different questions

Hi, nice site!

One request.. Please remove your scrolling modifications. I use the mouse wheel / arrow keys to scroll websites and doing it one pixel at a time is rather tedious when reading interviews.

It seems that Firefox's smooth scrolling function (Options -> Advanced -> Use smooth scrolling) was causing slow scrolling. I've updated the ExtJS library to the latest version to fix this.

There don't seem to be any RSS feeds, would it be possible to add one for the "Lore Blog"?

Excellent site, btw.
