Odd Man In with Ajax 7

I’ve been testing out a new type of interface to Odd Man In using some Javascript/CSS/DHTML trickery. Try it out using this URL in the latest game.

If you want to try it out in another game, just change one part of the url (from “&file=game” to “&file=game_ajax”). If you send a message or anything it will redirect you back to the normal page for now.

The new features include tabbed menus and a refreshing message system that alerts you if you have new messages. Let me know how it works for you guys.

    IE6 hates it, big time.

    Whoops, I didn’t mean to hit submit yet. I meant to add something about how badly the Cowboys are going to destroy the Eagles this weekend.

    I haven’t looked at it in IE at all. I’ll try it now.

    Cowboys have no chance.

    Seems to work better in IE now.

    Looks like Eagles kicked some but.

    I don’t like the Ajax version at all. Primarily because all the pertinent info is not on the same page/tab. I like the idea of reloaded the messages without reloading the entire page/shot chart, but having things seperated is not an improvement.

    mtjaws, the benefit is that it’s all there loaded in the browser so there is no waiting time between clicking. I can see how some people would like everything in one page, though (I did originally).
