Hi, great work Nate, wish you the best of luck with Apollo.
One question though... will the storybooks remain in tact?
I've done a lot of work on some and i'd hate to lose it all.

Thanks

Incredulous hopes
Steadily feasting away-
Eating away at my heart.

DNX ->> No worries. The storybooks will remain intact. However, they may not be available at the start as I'm rushing development of the new YWS before it's even ready. But, if they aren't available at the start, they will be available within a week of the start. So any absence wouldn't last long.

Will there be any possibilities of a mobile-viewing oriented website? That would be a really nice feature since I always take a quick peak of YWS on my phone, which normally takes a long time since it has to gather up the rich content. xD

And keep up the good work, Nate!

Murtuza ->> I've tried in the past to make a mobile website, but it's not exactly an easy endeavor. That said, I am currently researching about how to make a website look good no matter what device you view it on. But, don't expect anything special.


To all ->> If you want to get an idea of what YWS: Apollo will look like, go look at the new Twitter design. Apollo will look somewhat different than that, but it's going to be a very similar design (unintentionally). Here's what my mock-up looked like a few months ago:
topic86087.html

By the way, that mock-up is still pretty much what Apollo will look like. The navigation area directly above the story area (where it says "Home, Blogs, Browse...") will instead be a breadcrumbs area (ex. Forums >> Lounge, The >> YWS: Apollo), but that's the only real difference.

Will all the stuff that's here (chat, contests, badges, clubs, etc.) still be here with the simpler format, or will some features be unavailable?

So much nice different! I can't wait to get home and view it. It's less taxing on my phone's data usage charge, so plus!
