All righty then. Your favourite post-apocalyptic news source (that's supposed to mean us) now has some nifty old new features that I've just rolled out. If you look in the right hand-menu and scroll right the way down the bottom, you'll find a little heading called "Change Template". Take a guess at what that lets you do. At the moment, there's only an incomplete template called "Roach" available but you can change templates and see what it looks like.

However, what it means is that if you'd like to make a template for DAC, you now can (hence the why DAC needs HTML help since we've got a handful ready to go but no-one to do them - apart from me and I can't be stuffed). Cook something up for us and we can simply add it to the available templates for others to choose from. There are a few things you'll need to do so your template works with the site properly but more details on that are available from me if you need them (I may make a post in the Trashcan about it shortly too).

To stop you bastards sucking bandwidth by unnecessarily changing your template 20 times every day, we've set a limit on the number of changes you're allowed every week. At the moment, you're allowed to change your template 3 times every 7 days. Once 7 days is up, you get another 3 changes.

Something else rather exciting is you can now search our news and content items! Head on over to our news archives or content listing and search for items to your hearts content. Completely useless facts from our news archives include:

  • Mr. Teatime has posted 561 news items which is 409 more than Killzig ever did and 273 more than Kreegle (who's listed as Anonymous because his account was deleted when Killzig has his deranged episode).
  • We have 42 news items about Auto Assault, 35 of which were posted by Mr. Teatime.
  • In total, 502 news items were posted on DAC in 2004. That compares with 437 so far this year.
  • I'm sure you're more than capable of boring yourself to death with other more useless search results.

Another thing you'll notice is a "Related News Items" link appearing next to the "posted by" bit in news items. Following this link loads that news item and lists beneath it any news items which may in some way be relevant to it, such as other news from the same source, posted on the same day or related to the same company and so on.

We also now have a contact us form which you can use to send us any info you might think we'd want to hear such as a news item or something else which isn't a news item, like questions and things maybe.
