2004 ER & DU we proudly present thankyoupatriot.com... well...
Edited on Fri Jan-07-05 11:34 PM by frictionlessO
almost! its the beta site.

we want some input on this overnight. Coming soon all reps and senators that stood and supported will be underneath Boxer, Conyers and Tubbs Jones!

also the site will not have a post comment feature till its a lil more mature and is getting hits.

remember this is beta, just check out the look of the site, the colors and what not and let us know what you think.

By the way this is a completely DU grassroots effort, Chili has been phenomenal in taking this on and buying space and developing the site.

heres the site right now
http://shadowbox.i8.com/patriot.htm

for those not knowing what Im talking about check this thread and its corresponding links.

on edit: just so you know it was only at 12:16 in the afternoon when I posted the original idea! basically 36 hours to this point! Awesome!!

on second edit: I think I was overexcited, sorry for the spelling!

8. I feel some recognition
should be given to the other Senators and Congress presons who sttod up for the resolution (even if the vote cast was 'nay') Perhaps a list of names and an excerpt from each of the corresponding 5 minute speech?

45. They are NOT typos... it's a "temporary page" - Not finished yet!
I guess you've never worked with a publisher program before.

These programs have templates, and the text area is filled with this latin text temporarily, then you write your own words in them later.

Lookin' good, Chili! Can't wait to see the finished site go up!

76. yes some quotes from their speeches would be good
...and grouping as secondary supporters. Some of the speeches were very strong, and although these may not deserve the blue ribbons of the star group, they were willing to speak up at least. So I'm suggesting an "honorable mention."

20. Awesome
Looks good

1 suggestion -- put links on here to each of their addresses, fax numbers, emails etc and a statement encouraging people to write to them expressing their gratitude.

I fear that all of the minority yesterday (Boxer the most) will be the target of relentless smear campaigns and other negative publicity: They need to hear kind words that what they did is appreciated... let the site make it easy for many to show their appreciation...

something like next to each name:

Write and share your support *snail mail* *fax* *emai*

where *snail mail* would be a link that would open an .rtf or .doc file that that has the start of a letter with address filled in and maybe an opening statement *email* would be same but launch browser-based mail and *fax* would be same as *snail mail* but would have fax number...

thanks for your efforts... and thank chili for the shadowbox site.... which I have read EVERY DAY since its inception.

24. we're currently seeking law advice about how far to go in
regards to contact information and donations. The last thing we want to do is have these heroes associated with us if it might not be what they want.

We are also unsure as to the legality and the appropriateness of setting up direct to official donation links.

If you know anyone with knowledge on this stuff it could save us a lot of time and potential downers.

Thanks!

55. I agree
For example, when I when out to Rep. Tubbs-Jones site, I couldn't send her an e-mail because I don't live in her district (or state, for that matter). If there's another way to e-mail her, it would be great to have it handy like this.

30. Great stuff. Here are some quotes to use for the box!
If you put a randomizer, these could fit the mood:

"Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice."
-- John Adams



"He who dares not offend cannot be honest."
-- Thomas Paine



"Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not yet sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favor; a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But the tumult soon subsides."
-- Thomas Paine Common Sense, January 1776

32. I like it very much
Thank you for this site,I hope y'all can keep this up as an info site.I'm willing to donate as soon as you can get a donation link up.

It's 4 am here in Louisiana,I'm sick as a dog,but I can't let this go.My Senator,Mary Landrieu, chose not to vote and that is almost as bad as voting nay.

I want to make sure every Senator and Congress person who did not stand up for Democracy will be voted out of office when they're up for election again.We need to get rid of dead weight!
We can accomplish this if we're united and determined to take our country back.It might not happen in 08,but it will happen if we work together and this time our Democracy will be stronger and lasting,because we will never take it for granted again.

Sorry for the rant I really like your site.

60. Landrieu was off gallavanting around with Frist in Shri Lanka, "tying up
one of five available medical aid helicopters." Frist, when about to be photographed, said, "get some devastation behind me."

...and I went with a simple hosting plan, so I'd have to upgrade to allow the script I have for randomizing to work (and I might wind up doing that anyway). Meantime, I've created a .gif instead.

Can anyone tell me which Davis voted yea?

Also, I made space for the first, say, 8 thumbnail photos and lined them up on the side. That's just an idea, we can put them all on a separate page if you want, and put links there instead.

I gotta go to bed now. :)

(and thanks for all the kind words!)

Oh, forgot to say (LOL about the Lorem cracks!) - here's a Lorem page for those wondering what the heck that is...!

I like it.

I wouldn't put their direct contact info on, though. Possibly a link to the House and Senate main sites at the bottom of the page, but nothing more than that. If some jerk wants to e-harrass our heros for taking a stand for democracy, let's not make it that much easier to do so. Just my thoughts. :)

I love the way you were able to combine red, white and blue with the orange. The stars along the sides look great. It has a clean look, not too busy or confusing. Can't wait to see it with the content.

Edit to add: I don't know what resolution you've used for the photos, but it's taking an awfully long time to load. Can you reduce the size of the photo files by reducing the resolution and/or physical size a bit and bringing down the load time? At work, I probably wouldn't have this problem, but at home I'm on dial-up and it's very slow. Just a suggestion, but I think it would help.

Very happy you all liked the design first time out - that was a first draft, that's why the text is in Latin - that's just a text place holder. You guys agree on what you want it to say, write the text, and I'll replace the Latin with it!

62. I think this is great. The part that says "A tribute to great Americans"
is little harder to read than Thank You Patriot line. Perhaps a bit more white drop shadow?
I was going to say there is no flag but I went back and saw how you incorporated it everywhere. Very nice.

Now understand, I will gladly retract the first comment. I'm trying to be constructive and that is the only thing I can find to say.

64. buddysmellgood - love your nic!
You're right... it is hard to read right now. That's not even the font I wanted, I'm in the middle of setting up a new pc, and transferring all my files... my fonts are still on the old pc, so I have to migrate them over... limited on the choices until I do that (which I expect to do today / tonight). I really wanted an old sorta distorted text - you know, like an 18th C. news sheet type printed in a basement somewhere (you get the idea!) - I have a few of those, and I'll try them out.

Also, you guys decide what you want the links to be, what text you want, etc. I'll just fill in the blanks!

Will be offline for the rest of the day working on the transfers, running errands, etc. Be back tonight.

69. Nice.
That is great.

30K per image size can be reduced to increased load speed and cost of your bandwidth.

Here is what I use:

Forgive if you had plans to reduce already.

Paz!

70. Yay!!! & a coupla comments
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 03:30 PM by snot
This is a great idea, and the site looks fantastic.

My only comments are re- color, which perhaps I overreact to. On my screens, which are pretty well color-adjusted (one for "avg" Mac and one for "avg" PC), the overall look comes across as red, white & blue. I think we shd stay w/ red-white-blue as predominant colors but perhaps make the red a bit less orangey and make the RIBBON a bit MORE orangey . . . if that was the intent.

Also, I like the stars in the borders not being pure white, so they're not too distracting, but I think I'd like them a hair whiter than they are.

But color's v. subjective, so pls excuse if you don't agree. Overall, the site looks terrific!

Too bad I don't read Latin, though.

84. Would it be possible to add another page with pictures of OTHERS who
have stood up against this ADMINISTRATION for whatever reason? Journalist, book authors, people who have EXPOSED the inner workings of this Administration for whatever reason...reguardless of party affiliations.

?? Just curious
