Re: Relaunch of SGC Portal

Plenty of bugs. The images are not showing. Gallery cannot work. And also Qi Yuwu's photos are showing lol.

Quite nice design, except those foreign ads. If u want to place ads, at least let them be local. This is Singapore Club, SGC, not American Club. So why is there the Date Wealthy Women ads?

Re: Relaunch of SGC Portal

So who wrote all those articles? There is no author's name or date or any source. And I think this style of article placing is old fashioned and so 1990s. Nowadays everything is in blog format. E! Online used to have such article format, until they changed it to blog format, which is pretty much the modern style.

And one more thing. Pardon my nagging lo sor-ness, but the articles are not specifically tailored to Singaporeans. They're very generic and we can easily find tons of these articles on American websites. So why should we log onto the portal to find something which is pretty much everywhere? I suggest getting some local article writers and create articles specially for the Singaporean audience. This is SGC, not AGC! lol.

we are looking into the lag issue too. not sure yet if its due to the portal or our server.

what do u mean by blog format? any examples to share?

agreed on the focus on the subjects. it takes time to build up the range of articles esp if we are talking specifically related in Singaporean context. perhaps you can suggest some good titles or topics? we are looking to add more articles on news commentaries, local events and places, etc.

This is blog format. Author's name is there, date is the date the entry is posted. Very modern, easy to access feel. The "new" SGC portal looks very dated. Nobody really uses that format anymore. Another example of blog format is http://www.engadget.com/

ok, so when u say blog format, u mean the sequential listing of articles. well, its not entirely true that no one uses this portal format anymore. we've done lots of research and studies before coming up with this design as we felt it is more suitable. also if u look at it in another way, the 'latest articles' section is sort of like a 'smaller version' of a blog format except with several other modules on the page.

but your feedback is noted. we can perhaps relook at this when it is time for a redesign

Re: Relaunch of SGC Portal

SGClub is a forum and should pride itself for it. The direction it is heading is deviating from the original purpose. I maintain my stand of "if people want such articles, they can search for it themselves or visit already-existing website".

We can be sister sites advertising one another but SGClub (the forum) should not be an offshoot of another content-loaded website. There are little links and relationships between the two.

Good layout. Perhaps you can consider upgrading the forum (where the traffic, community and money are) and making it even more usable and cool.

Exactly! Thats what I've been trying to say. The articles are pointless and not unique. If we want tips on how to study better, there are a zillion of those everywhere on the net!

And it's making the entire system lag.

Re: Relaunch of SGC Portal

yes, we hear your comments abt the objectives of this portal. however, there is more that this portal can achieve and develop. Hope you guys can give it some time.

apart from the idea of this portal, we wld like to hear suggestions on improvements and what is good abt it too.

lag issue is also being investigated, just be a little patient during this transition period ya?

Yes, I do know that the portal has more to achieve and develop. But whatever it can do and whatever it can achieve have no relation to SGClub forum. In fact, there is little integration between the two systems. Users here can't post there via their already-existing user accounts. (I'm sure you can think of more)

Improve the forum instead of expanding to other areas. I think it can add more value to a user's experience much more than what a portal can do.

certainly we will continue improving the forums too. if we get good ideas or suggestions, we will be sure to implement them. having this portal does not reduce or take-away our enthusiasm in improving the forums in any way

Re: Relaunch of SGC Portal

Its probably on the same shared server. Given the daily traffic, I doubt the shared server can handle the load. A dedicated server would make a more logical choice, but its very expensive.

And if really die die also must have a portal, I rather Mav set up a team of writers and post Singapore-based articles in blog format. I'm not vehemently against the portal, its just that its abit outdated and pointless.

Actually its not shared hosting, it is dedicated, unless they applied for a dedicated ip.
