Vixens! Vixens! Vixens!!!!!

Where are those HUGE vixen brains? Are you sucking down the Thanksgiving Margaritas already?

I am asking the Vixens to comment on The SLIDESHOW. IT IS RIGHT THERE on this link. The link works perfectly. You are not supposed to "open" a story. Just please comment on the slide show. Come on. Where is that fabled Vixen Energy and Wit???????

Yes, my firebrands, this IS a test.


Here is the link:
DOPE

Don't look for a "story" There is no "article" It is the Dope Astrology Slide Show. It is an innovation for Huffington! Get your heads around it.

    E. Jean---I like the slideshow you assembled at the Huffington Post.

    A quick suggestion: It would be cool if the horoscopes were presented horizontally and moved very slowly like a stock ticker. When someone moused over one of the horoscopes, it would stop and they could read it. Drag you mouse off and it continues to play.

    I agree with John. This would make it more of a "slide show" and less of what is really just a "scroll." It would also allow it to both draw attention and for the user to read a specific horoscope.

    I think the format works well for a horoscope, but, as others have said, it would be nice if it were a little bigger: a lot of the images lose their impact without us being able to see as much detail. The slide show is a good teaser to entice people to click the link to the website.

    E Jean

    Sorry to be serious, but they need to put in some effort on that page layout. While they're at it, you can acquire some of that space they're obviously not using.

    A first for HP, so they should actually give you that spare column on the right, at least, and add back links on the pics.

    It'll look better with the extra size, and give you the extra visual hit.

    I'm no expert, but I've done some pages myself. Just had a look at the page source code, and from the look of that, you've been "centred", rather than "margined". That pretty much creates space on either side.

" That toupee-topped pooch knows the scoop as every time I tone down the 'real me' there is hell toupee!

    I thought the position of the Dope Astrology ad was well placed a the beginning of Harrington Post, good competitive edge on being on top (oh yeah hehe!)

    The hot pink frame catches the eye nicely and for me, the font of 'Dope Astrology' gives it enough quirk to jazz & spice the word "Dope" up.

    Color + position + ad structure + captivating pictures + user friendly scroll option = Climatic ad impact

    I am limiting my comments to the pink Dope and will not focus on Huffy's site layout...but with all that wasted space around pink Dope you could even add more eye-candy border to drag & pop people into the site even more!

    Honestly, the predictions themselves are HILARIOUS!
    Fantastic job!
    But....(and that's a big butt, like Rosanne Barr), I think you guys are selling yourself short! (or small)

    MAKE IT BIGGER! I clicked it on it, and it did enlarge, yet right from the get-go, I don't know if I would've went right it to of wasn't told to do so.

    So worth reading them! So use some more space, maybe thinking outside the box...literally.

    IF the title to the predictions was OUTSIDE, it would grab those curious peepers quicker.

    Well, um, yeah, that's great and all, but did you see the dog wearing the toupee? I couldn't focus on the page layout, because a DOG WAS WEARING A TOUPEE. Still, the dog wasn't as strange-looking as Madonna. So, to steal the Joker's immortal line, Why so serious?

    Because even though this is all in fun, that's no excuse not to have a professional layout at this level. Also a more professional layout would attract more hits and improve the entertainment value - case in point there were others who likewise noticed this was difficult to read this way, and that in itself is not so funny.

    Ervin, I'm an Aussie. If I see a dog wearing a toupee, I've found the yacht club again. Either that or there's something I'm not telling myself.

    EJean,
    Now I am starting to take this Dope astrology thing a little too personally. How did you know I don't have no stretch marks!!!!??

    Phew! I just got back from a witty jaunt through the Huffington site. I left a snarky trail of commentary in my wake.

    E. Jean, seriously, you are blowing up. Every single week it seems another project is happening for you.

    What an exciting time :-)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I went to the site, Saw what I thought was the slide show; If I am correct, thought it was cool. The pictures matched the wording. Seemed a little small though.

    Agree. Not to mention the fact the small box, due to the coding involved, will render in all browsers differently.

    I used Firefox, IE, Chrome and Opera- all 4 required more, or less navigation. Firefox was horrible- I got the point of how to navigate and how to "make it bigger," but in order to do so I had to tab, scroll, tab, scroll, tab, etc. Sometimes I had to go all the way back to the beginning, (using backspace), and start over to make it work.

    For people who either do not have javascript enabled, or, have it enabled, but limited in what it will do, (mainly IE users-when I viewed the page in IE, it showed a lot of errors), they may not be able to view the frame as others.

    An average reader will not realize the Dope Astrology section is actually a frame within the main page because it is so small. They'll assume something is wrong with the page and move on- and TM and E. Jean deserve much, much more-and while I understand what the Huff folks were trying to achieve, I think E. Jean was short changed, so to speak, when it comes to the design and promotion.

    When I started testing software, web-based and stand-alone, I was told, "If a monkey can use it, then it's ok to roll out to other users. If not, it needs more work."- It needs more work.

    I gave up too. I had a few zingers and not one was approved, with the exception of a stupid response to a comment E. Jean made.

    For me, the Huffingtonpost has been a lot of huffing and puffing without the post. Technical difficulties in registering on the website have delayed my comments. I will post as soon as the issue is rectified.

    Glad you enjoyed them, E. Jean. The inner-astrologist in me has been waiting for the opportunity to bust out! So, thanks for letting me help the people get through their day. I think my pumpkin advice could possibly start a revolution.

    You Go Girl!!! I thought it was malicious software possibly causing the issue!!! But you are right about how each system registers the column differently!!

    E. Jean,

    Just want to say that I mentioned your Huffington Post blog to my boyfriend, and he flipped out (in a good way). I think he may be even more impressed with that than the fact that you've written for Playboy.

    You've got strangers once removed who are proud of you! Congrats E. Jean!

    I saw the slideshow and it was a heart stopping, brain bubbling, hyperventilating feast for the senses.

    I'm still recovering as I write this. Hands trembling. Sweat beading up on forehead.

    I'm going to go step out on to my balcony now and shout out the URL to anyone who is within listening distance of my shaky quakey voice box.

    Yes. A great idea, this slide show. I particularly liked the Sagittarius comment on chemical peels for pants. Classic.

    Keep it coming, Miss E Jean. You bright the fireworks and I'll light the fuses.

    Maybe the idea is to get us to go to The Huff site so there is no slide show at all?
    Otherwise, I did not/do not see it.
    I like slide shows so I'd really like to find the thing ...

    I'm not writing anything else on the Huff site, only to see other comments approved and mine rejected based on some unknown criteria. My comments have not been offensive, no foul language and not unlike those which were posted after mine.

    I'm not going to pretend to be someone I'm not, just to satisfy a person moderating comments, or for anything in this world. Call this my "The Devil Wears Prada," moment.

    Not whining, only be open, honest and to the point. And exhausted from trying to allow others a glimpse of me, only to be tossed aside.

    I think, Vixens, this will be my last post. I don't consider it quitting, I consider it keeping true to myself and my dignity.

    Au Revoir.

    I found it!!
    (I had to go to the opening page and click on Dope Astrology and scroll down.)
    That having been said:
    Sarah Palin sandwiched between a Neanderthal killer and Bush kissing Lieberman is perfect placement.

    Why oh why bring Linda Tripp back? Didn 't she die?????
    Shouldn't she have?

    I'm supposed to write stuff on the Huff site? I'd rather have nude photos of me blasted across the Internet for all and sundry to see and savor.

    Either we are giving advice here or we are promoting Huffington, who of course deserves it, but nevertheless...

    So do I flunk the "test" ??

    Congratulations! Huffington Post, eh?

    There are technical glitches using Internet Explorer. It took a long time to find anything to click on that would enlarge it to a more viewable size. Once I did, most of the content was gone... it apparently went beyond the frame, an I could not get it back. Firefox made it much more presentable. We could scroll down the entire page and have it all viewable.

    Way to go! You definitely have a unique take on things!
