The Big Winnars Rewrite (Hank Is KING)

The Big Winnars Rewrite (Hank Is KING)

Just finished up the big winnars page rewrite:

http://fretwar.com/winnars

You'll notice that your # of submissions ranks you more than your score
so far.  I'll probably revisit that in the near future, but it seemed a
simple way to get people who only played once to drop off if they don't
keep playing.

Anyway, fun stuff.  Now for a better index page.

Thanks Zed --

That check is in the mail ;)

Feels like NASCAR ... you can never win but still lead the standings
by just showing up all the time and placing.

Of course I might win round 6 because no one else wants to play ...
less than 12 hours and it's mighty lonely on the round 6 list.

Yeah, I figure that's a good way to encourage people to play.

I'm doing mine today, but I think Chad's going to puss out this time.

Thanks for the extension.  I've been playing Team Fortress 2 with my
son and being lazy, but I've still got something to upload if I don't
make it any better...

BTW, the current round rankings are kind of hidden at the bottom of
Winnars.  Maybe the latest round should be at the top...  Or split
into two pages, or columns, or something.

Lazy!? Here I am slaving away at a site just for you and you're enjoying
time with your family!

Now I have a reason to implement the banishment feature!

Oh yeah, thanks, all of that was after a night of very evil hacking just
to get it up.  There's *lots* of cleanup still to do.

I went ahead and tossed the current round at the top so people can see.
It's also on the front page too.

Alright now to hit work and then finish my recordings tonight.

The navigation still needs some tweaks IMO, but you can check the winnars
for the latest round on the main page (aka http://fretwar.com).

Yes, since I built it obviosly everthing makes sense to me, but what
would you change about the "navigation".

And if you say "font" or "typography" I'll rip your damn heart out. :-)

no, nothing like that.
although... I'd change the graphics. :D

actually, the site has come along very well.
I dived just now and the only gripe I could have is a direct link to
"rounds" on the top.

otherwise excelent job, you're So Fucking Awesome x)
