KUBuckets.com or the Best Looking Basketball Site on the Net



  • I want to applaud and call attention to this white virtual piece of paper floating on a magnificently subtle background. I am blown away at how perfect the site looks and feels now.

    This is elegant.

    @approxinfinity has hit my sweet spot on web site design. It functions beautifully, effortlessly and intuitively. Its a perfect fusion of analog and digital visual cues leading to seamless functionality. Its so elegantly simple in feel that it reminded me of the first time I used one of Steve’s iPods. I am a design afficionado and the highest compliment I can pay any design is the following:

    a.) it is what I always hoped for but needed a designer to bring from silence to light (a tip of the hat to Louis Kahn);

    b.) it is so organically right it seems like it has always been their waiting to be discovered intact as it is;

    c.) immediately after seeing it I can no longer recall what previous designs looked like, or how we functioned with anything else;

    d.) it flat works.

    Congratulations, @approxinfinity and lucky us.

    Rock Chalk!



  • @jaybate-1.0 thanks man. if we get tired of it we can switch back, or try something else. it was just feeling extra vanilla tonight.



  • As with any css overrides there are often unforseen consequences. I’m just a hack. The nodebb guys deserve the credit here. I noticed that when you are loading a long thread, the picture, which is already heavily reduced in quality and pixelated, will get stretched tremendously and only a fraction of the picture will show on phones for those transitions. I probably need to rethink this one. Everything the nodebb guys did was with careful consideration so I’ll try to carry my bowling ball with 2 hands through this China shop.



  • @approxinfinity So far it’s working good and looking great on my end! Thanks!

  • Beats the 247 (and now scout) layout any day!



  • Killing the background for now as it caused issues for some.



  • @approxinfinity … I, too, can see marked improvement to the site. The overall functionality is excellent and intuitive. Just a “great job” by all involved. You should be proud of yourself. Thanks for making this a FUN experience for all.



  • @Red.Rooster Thanks man! Glad we could get the upgrade knocked out in the bball offseason; that was a big win.



  • @approxinfinity

    Same great content, but less filling look.

    Oh, well, it was a beta that pointed the way.

    Maybe some day.
