You kinda suck at wasting your time.

Yeah, there's just not enough regularly active people around... Especially with the few that are seeming to largely fall into just two groups. I have got one new user to show up, but I suspect he will largely agree with DB, which doesn't help the variety (feel free to prove me wrong, Steve!).

I wonder if DNr will bloom some day. Looks like these kinds of sites, if left to themselves, form small, tight communities.

The site needs re-writing (and will have to move soon). It won't happen though, as I already have other projects/work to take up all my time. It took 2 months originally, and I learnt many ways not to do things from it. It's fairly good and stable, but breaks usability by being 100% AJAX-based. That, and people need to start using bigger monitors.

What needs to be done? Could you open it up and let us see whats up with it and maybe try and fix it or are you unwilling/unable to devote the time to fix/repository it?

The only real problem is that if you use a 1024×768 resolution, as most people do, there isn't much space for the scrollable area under a topic. The site is essentially one massive JavaScript application, which somewhat breaks usability and also makes it impossible to fix for MS IE. If you don't think anything needs to be done, then maybe the site is fine as it is. I had thought to re-write it to not rely on JavaScript but that would go back on the fundamental design, and probably wouldn't make the site any more popular anyway.

I think one obvious update/addition that could help get some fire back in here would be mobile compatibility (I've never tried, so don't know if that works?) or even an app. Though you are again left with trying to get people on-board, and then keeping it all running if you get HIGH volumes of people visiting! I can't make my mind up whether the screen size thing should be an issue any more - either I think 'yeah, everyone gets big shiny monitors now', or 'everyone is using netbooks and tablets'. Though obviously neither is true...

DNr is a nice experiment in AJAX, although the interface kinda annoyed people jumping ship from the simpler SB. Anyway, I don't think DNr would have more than 10 additional users today even if Lee had cloned SB down to the font and color scheme.

This would be a great experiment on web page design.

I already imagine it: Select interface preference: a) DNr Classic b) SB rip-off
