The Trouble With Design Boards


A design board where people work out how to do things involved with customizing a message board is disappointment and neglect. It takes a lot of effort to work out the details and put something like a skin together which means the designers posts are normally lower than those of most message boarders. Then after all the work the designer may not get any kind of thank you or encouragement while the "chat and play" areas get tons of posts. So the designer may come to the conclusion that no one really notices or cares. This leads to the neglect of the code where minor mistakes or changes should be made but are never done.

That is just for one coder. When a special board, like this one, is created it can be worse because one would think other people involved in coding would jump at the chance to help and support each other but it seldom happens.

In my case though you are looking at a very busy person that absolutely refuses to give up. This board will not only survive but it will also prosper as a place to explore the "Design Elements" of the Runboard message board system.

Hi Teatimer,

Thank you for the nice compliment. I hope that one day the board will have multiple board/skin designers here and then just watch the explosion of new things we will figure out emoticon

This is still true.

On the bright side I have completed negotiations with one insurance company (3 to go)...

In your initial post I agree. I don't design things but on occasions I'll spend hours trying to help someone (not on RB but in other places of my life) and don't even a thank you emoticon So yeah I understand and you've created so many skins that it's the perfect time to say: thank you emoticon

Thanks to all of you, I wasn't looking for "thank yous" but it is nice to see that others do occasionally visit. emoticon

Re: The Trouble With Design Boards


Hello from a new to Run board designer emoticon

I am slowly visiting boards that interest me and this one is surely one of them.

Rick you've done a fantastic job setting this board up and I know I will be spending heaps of time reading/browsing through all the different sections.

I always leave a hello or g'day when I visit a board.

Have a great weekend emoticon
Martha
