Redesign?

307
enfusion says:

Hey guys. The current frontpage of is 120kb(!!), doesn't this give you guys an insane bandwidth cost?

I'm pretty confident this could be brought down to 20-30kb with CSS-based HTML even with the same design. (Right now it heavily relies on tables, and the excess markup really is plenty.)

Any chance for custo to acknowledge user-submitted (or user-proposed) designs?

While we're waiting for EVO to drop out of the sky, to whom can we submit possible redesigns?

Wonderful to see EVO still being developed :)

What I was asking tho is if it was possible to have the current design's HTML markup at least be revisited to save 75% of size/bandiwdth. :)
[I'm on 56k! 120kb pages make me sad :(]
[I'm also willing to help if needed. :)]

EVO is all CSS based. There isn't much that can be done now. You can always make a design up and submit it to lamplighter and you might have a 5% chance or so of it getting published. He's a busy guy!

Well, the design portion of it may be CSS-based, but if the (X)HTML it styles is crap (e.g., uses tables for layout or suffers from a severe case of divitis), then having a CSS-based layout is nearly pointless.

I'm also willing to help.

The first version of EVO was pretty insane. The redesign as c72 just said will definitely be very, very advanced.

When I last talked to lamp about EVO, he said that they scrapped everything they had done and started completely over because they were now able to make it even better than previously thought. This would be why it is taking longer than anticipated, because they started over. Now this may suck because you have to wait longer, but in the long run we are going to be getting a much better EVO

Well we dont actually KNOW how good it is going to be either, we can only speculate based off what we have been told, but from what I hear, it should be awesome.
