start the riots: new features

hello again,

I've made some changes and hopefully they are for the best.

First and foremost, I've tackled a cookie problem that was due to the move over to Zeus and splitting up ytmnd from ytmnsfw. You should have a lot less issues with logging in and voting.

Read more for the rest.
Keywords have launched, allowing you to see all of the people who added picard, khan, batman etc as keywords to every one of their sites. Feel free to downvote these people out of existance.

Major changes to the site template, making it smaller in size and hopefully a bit faster. Moved away from the "# !" setup and towards the corner image which is a little more noticable. Hopefully this will let a few more people know the site is more than just a single subdomain.

Now I know there is going to be a huge onslaught of YTMNDs giving me shit about some of the changes, the are ads on the subdomains, etc. The fact is, the text ads on the site arent making enough money to pay for the bandwidth. The traffic YTMND is using is insane. Ads on the subdomain pages are a necessary evil.

Seriously Max, why did you wipe all my sites? That was really uncalled for. Some of my sites were getting consistently high ratings, like classicytmnd.com And it wasn't like I was involved in any serious sh*t like hacking the site. I deserve an explanation for this.

I'm not sure about the corner thing. Decent idea, i guess it'll need tweaking as time goes by.

I still need to add www when i click on site profiles. Otherwise I get "400 Bad Request" and this message: "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit." Followed by a whole bunch of cookie names. I'm on OSX 10.3 on Safari.

O yeah, about the bandwidth max. Wouldn't it be so much easier to have the most used songs uploaded at one source and then have the option to select the song when making the ytmnd. So each fad song doesn't have to be downloaded 90 different times for each paradoy?

Ah, nice change with the "# !" thing. I like it. Plus, i'm glad the logo you put in place of the "# !" is the old one. Looks tons better. 5/5 for the new changes Master Max.

Blue ball is messed up in Safari as well. Probably has something to do with the corner thing, but I'm no web designer.

I'll have to fall in too by saying that the YTMND corner image is too big. A bit smaller should do. Aside from that, I'll never make an anti-YTMND ad site again.

Yes, everyone including myself hates the corner image. If you could align it bottom right and make it a bit smaller that would be super. It would still get the job done and wouldn't be as in the way. :)

Yeah definitely, bottom would be better. It would obviously open left and still be too enough from the text to be _too_ distracting... just noticable.

Maybe if you made the white background on the corner more of a gray so it didn't cause so much contrast on all the sites, since most of them are dark.

I don't mind the corner logo too much, but maybe if it were middle grey it would look more consistent across light and dark sites. Also, you WIN for showing keywords on profiles. Now we can bitch people out who keyword spam.

The corner image is fine, however 'back' no longer works unless you click it thre times. Thats the only issue I have with the logo - which is a much needed improvement over the #.

x2 on everything DarhErik said, minus the cookie issue. I also liked the # ! system, but I can see you wanting it to grab your attention more. It took me a while to figure out this site was more than just a bunch of sub-domains because of it.

ok, just found out: this has been a problem for my pages, only since the update. i had the images on Spread, rather than Center or Tile. changed to Tile or Center, and they work fine. shame about the glitchiness of this site tho. :/ Let's hope the bucks from advertising can go toward fixing this sh*t!

PROBLEM: If you log in at http://www.ytmnd.com and then view sites and go to the site profiles you end up at http://ytmnd.com and you are not logged in any more. There should be one login that works across both with and without 'www'
