Pseudolonewolf`s Avatar Major Site Update Sun 8th Aug 2010 4:01am

Category: Site Updates

I've been working on this for a few weeks now, and I've finally got the new version of the site ready for general viewing.
I've not yet replaced this old version yet, though; I'll probably do that when everything on the new version is fully working.

For now, you can access it by Clicking on this link that doesn't actually work in the new layout but should in the old one!

You'll need to upload a new avatar and you can set some new stats that completely replace the old Vital Statistics, and there's a completely new and better PM system which uses a different database so your old PMs won't transfer over, but other than that, you'll keep the rest of your user data and comments and forum posts and stuff.

Please inform me of any problems that you notice. There are some pages that are marked as 'ADD LATER' or something though; don't tell me about those because I already know.

Also, opinions are very welcome! Is the new version better? Why or why not? (Being specific is great; I'd rather hear what you like than something generic and useless like 'looks good!'...)
And is it *faster*? Speed was the main reason I made the change, after all!

Oh, also, you'll notice that the bar below the navbar, and the one on the left don't have any real content in them yet. I'm not sure what to use the one on the left for, but I want to keep it that width. Any ideas for useful content to put there? That is, not just stuff put there for the sake of being there, but something that may be of use.

I have to agree with this one too. Why haven't you put MARDEK 3 on this site yet?

It's still sitelocked on Kongregate, so you will just have to wait until it's not.I think he will put it on the site this month at least.

Nice looking site. Have fun making it. Not that it needed a change. The old one looked fine.

I don't know if it's just me, but i can't log in on the new site, but can on the old one. I have to go back to the old site, log in, and then go back to the new one, to access its contents. Is that supposed to happen? Um... anyway, are you going to do a page like the temperaments? Except it's for the elements, like how Aether is Neutral? If there is already a page like that, then my bad.

This is the first I have heard of this logging in problem, so it might be just you. Are you using an auto-filled password box on either version of the site? Are you sure you're using the right password?

Elements are no longer tied to personality, and are just for show (since the temperaments do a much better job of grouping personalities). Choose whichever one you prefer.

No, I'm pretty sure i type my password correctly. If you're saying that the password box is already filled, then no. Both the username and password boxes are empty. I'll try to log in a couple more times, to make sure then.

As good as this update is, I really think you should finish the mardek walkthrough which would "probably be finished in the next few days" quite a while ago.

I noticed this before, but forgot to report it... The little drop down menu that shows the ratings for posts and comments doesn't seem to be working properly for me. It's fine on the userpages, but in the forum and on comments it keeps appearing in the wrong place, usually too far up the page, and sometimes it doesn't appear at all. I've also been unable to rate things (it only happened once), but that was fixed when I refreshed the page.

I am using Firefox, by the way.

Website coding can be such a pain because different code works in different browsers... JavaScript that works in one doesn't work at all in others, which was the case here.
So I've now rewritten the code and it seems to work in (hopefully) all browsers.

As for the inability to rate, if it fixed itself when you refreshed the page, it was likely some temporary problem at your end rather than some fault of the site.

Hmm... I came up with two ideas for the 'extra stuff' on the sides and top. For the top, you could do a 'fig news' thing, which would have your recent progress, or anything else important, scrolling across the top. This might, however, be hard to code, or it might make things slower or something, but it's just an idea.

The other idea is that you should have a poll asking people what to do with the 'extra stuff' areas on the side.

A separate idea: Why not have some kind of community competition things? I think there were a few games like that, but if there were 'official' competitions, you could have, say, recent winners on the side bar thing. That brings up another idea: If you want to get moderators, but you cannot figure out who to make as moderators, perhaps have an election poll? Just a thought.

Other than that, the site seems to be running smashingly. It's a lot faster than it was before, and it's easy enough to use, once you get the hang of it. I'm glad to see the 'ratings given/ratings received' feature is up and running now. I had to go back to the old site to check that out until it was set up.

You still have a lot of work to do on it, but I know that I, probably along with most people, couldn't have done half as well. Good work!

Just something i noticed... On the main page at the top it says "comminity" instead of community.

Am I the only one who can't find the area on the forums where you see the most recent posts with this new version?

Never mind, I figured it out. Just click the "Community" button. Back on the old style, I clicked "Forum".

Everything seems fine, except two things- I think you should add a "say it" button to that chat room, it took my 5 minutes to realize there wasn't a button and you have to press enter. Two, the honesty description use to be funnier (D=), when it said "I find it really irretating when someone enters something like 0 or 100, we'll just assume you're about 12". There is also no recent progress box since we all LOVE to creep up on what you're doing and what you accomplish every minute. The left side can be for what you recently posted (like replies to comments and forums). Other than recent progress box, the front page looks cleaner. gratz

Actually, there is a recent progress box. It's just on the blog page instead of the front page. So, uh, you'll have to go there if you want to do your Pseudolonewolf-creeping.
