Gurus mixed up?

    When I switch between skins, the gurus tag becomes switched. For example, in one skin, mathwonk is math guru and in the other matt grime is the math guru. The engineering and community spirit ones also seem off. In Prime, astronuc has the community spirit award, but in Nexus, he has the Engineering guru award. I think the physics one might also be mixed up.

    It does. I've cleared my cache many times and it still displays that way. Nexus also has a few other bugs I can't remember so perhaps may need a good looking at. :smile:

    I don't think Greg was planning on continuing to support the Nexus skin for very long. Apparently, it's not used by very many people, and it's a big hassle for him to maintain both skins because they are so different and everything has to be done pretty much twice for each. I don't know if he's changed his mind (or been persuaded by others) to keep it and forgot to update things to match the Prime skin, or if he just hasn't gotten around to removing it. Prime is currently the default for all new users.

    You might want to get in the habit of using Prime, and if there are things you need to switch to Nexus for, because they aren't appearing in Prime for some reason, let us know about those. I think it's more important that our default skin have full functionality than to expect people to switch back and forth for needed features.

    The only reason why a lot of people seem to be using prime is becuase its the default skin. So most people wont even care to switch. I do prefer Nexus over this. Prime's interface is cluttered. I'm talking about those little annoying blogs, news and so on. Even minimizing them does no good. Besides Nexus has the cool flash animation.

    Was that the thing to give all former gurus medals or something?

    Yeah I have noticed that too, as I use Nexus. I think the funny member guru does not even show up.

    Actually, I've found a way to remove those extra windows on the right side of the main window for Prime. I used RIP for firefox.

    If I recall correctly, it was simply an idea to make a list of all ex-gurus.

    We got a lot of complaints about Nexus, mainly because of the flash animation (slow loading and distracting), and once Prime was touched up to be a little less "blah", a lot of people switched to it even when it wasn't the default. The only thing I don't like is the same you mention about the main index page, with all the stuff in the right column instead of at the bottom of the page, but I don't spend much time on the main index page for it to matter that much.

    I'm really not sure what Greg's plans are for Nexus at this point. Like I said, it was something mentioned (before the upgrade I think), but he may have changed his mind about removing it.

    I think a Guru Hall of Fame would be nice. I think it's great to pass Guru status around each year so everyone has a chance, but that doesn't mean we should forget our former Guru's. Of course, we're running out of space to put recognitions, but if it can be squeezed in, I'm all for it. Perhaps on the staff link where we recognize Homework Helpers and Science Advisors?
