[Motd] ANN v2 beta15ANN.lu

It's been quite some time since I last wrote a MOTD... This one is supposed to announce beta15 of the scripts, now with a more colorful rating interface (although I'm not entirely satisfied with it yet) and a bugfix that suppresses the "Read More" link for concerned articles in a comment's flat view and shows the entire article instead. Besides that, my life has been changing lately, not always for the better, and I haven't always had the opportunity and motivation to update ANN. Even though Teemu is doing an excellent job, I'd still appreciate an additional moderator or two to increase the number of articles posted on the main page, especially for (but not limited to) the files and/or web section.

If you're going to have a coloured rating system, I suggest that you
colour the text (1-5), and not the background, makes it a bit non flashy.
And perhaps a different scale, like dark red to black to dark blue ..

I agree with #1. The "Austin Powers" colour scheme is a bit much :)

Sorry, but I've got to rate the new color scheme a "0." And don't lose the faith! You do a tremendous job!

Drop the colours on the ratings, as it distracts the eye from the most
important thing on a news site - the news.

Just wanted to say that the sesame street style color scheme looks terrible.
It makes the site look very unprofessional and as the guy above said it
distracts attention from the news.
sorry :-(

Well, I agree with all these comments too.
One thing that would need to be changed, on the contrary, is the visibility of news items titles, especially the non moderated ones. Perhaps make them one size bigger..

In reply to Comment 6 (Olivier Fabre):
Or maybe writing "(UNMODERATED)" at the end of the title instead of at the beginning !
