Thumbs up Shisha Chef website Alpha launch!

I know some of you were really looking forward to Shisha Chef coming to fruition, so I put some hard time in and got the site ready for Alpha testing.

What is Alpha testing?
It's basically a preliminary round of testing for all the forms and functions of the website. I encourage you to submit recipes, rate them, leave comments, visit every page you can find and let me know how everything works out.

The design that's up right now will NOT be the final design, but it will be similar.

So please, check out the site. Let me know what you think of it and if you experience any problems. After all, I'm doing this for the hookah community so your opinions are very important to me.

Looking good. I was just thinking that the background for the site could represent hookah and hookah tobacco more than the foods that are currently pictured. And, under the "Add Recipe" tab I did notice one, small typo that you might want to correct. Here is the line; Any recipe found to contain illegal substances will me moderated at our discretion. I italicized the typo. I do realize that as you said this is the alpha run of the site but figured you might appreciate constructive crit. Otherwise I think it's great! I can't wait till it gets some recipes going. Smoke happy.

Thanks for the suggestion and the heads up on the typo, Dusty. Any idea where I can find some arty HQ photos for the slideshow? I can only seem to find stock images of hookah pipes and shisha containers.

I had to enter the confirmation code thingy twice the first time it didn't take, don't know if that's intended or a bug. Just a heads up

Probably a bug. I was messing with some tables in the database a few minutes ago, so that's probably what gave you the double captcha error.

looks good but one critique... for christs sake LOSE THE FLASH, no need for it there you can use a .gif if you must have the cycling or just set it up to rotate through the pics as you reload. i dont mean to come off rough or rude, i just loathe flash with all my being and soul (a long with a majority of techies)

Haha, I'm kinda with you on the flash. I'm not digging it as much as I did originally. As of now, it's just there because I don't know what else to put there. Too much empty space without it.

the pics are fine, i would just set it up to load one of the how ever many and not change until a reload. doesnt change the look and saves the cpu usage

Nice website. I like the design, it's really clean and well laid-out. However I'd advise against the use of Flash. Mostly because it could easily be replaced by something doesn't eat CPU cycles for breakfast, like Javascript or HTML 5. That would do a great service to the mobile/netbook people who wish to view your website in its entirety.

Hey guys. I'm going to be looking for moderators soon to help me accept/deny/edit recipes since I'm not able to get online as much as I'd need to. If you're interested, shoot me a PM.

I have a few more tweaks to make and the site will be ready for full launch. Beta testing kind of came and went without announcement. I'm still shooting for the beginning of next week as the official launch date.
