    QFFT. I think we can keep the gradient, but only for the opening post. The replies should be the default davy's gray (?). Like one gradient wallpaper for the whole thread view and not for each individual post.

    Also, I don't like how XenForo resizes smaller avatars to default size (100x100). Can that be disabled or is it hardcode-integrated?

    Thanks guys.

    I will be doing something to avatar images. It also disables animation of GIFs which I don't like.

    I will also talk to Archian about the gradient :)

    I suggest better categorization for code resources:

    To be general, main title should be "Codes", not "Spells". I'm not sure yet. If eventually you keep the current style in that beta site, maybe "Code resources" fits better.

    Categories:
    - GUI/Triggers
    - Jass
    - vJass
    - cJass
    - Zinc
    - Wurst
    - (maybe) xJass​

    Types:
    - Spell, with sub-types:
    - Target point
    - Target unit
    - No target
    - Passive​
    - (Spell)pack
    - System
    - Snippet​

    Since snippet section is quite special (with definition that snippets do not need any form of demonstration), maybe it should prohibits user to upload map? Not sure.

    And please, give a clear distinction between needs fix/pending/approved resources. They all should be visible to everyone but separated into several "sub-section". Those sub-sections are based on resources' status like pending/rejected/approved/etc.

    I know it sounds asking a lot but they are all just suggestions.

    Btw, having both reputation system and "like" system at once is quite something.

    You can upload icons to the objects section right now yes. All sections will be imported as is though, so we will have an icons section.
    Yeah, I stopped reading at that word. If you rephrase it, I may read it again.

    If I may recommend to make Spell Section better, taken from Quilnez's post with a variation of mine, a separation between spells and systems won't hurt.
    Currently, spell section is pure mess, the chain of spell + system make it like a chaotic one (and really, it's very messy).

    Split it into 2 different categories :

    Spell Section :
    > Single Spell
    >> Instant
    >> Unit Target
    >> Point Target
    >> Unit/Point Target
    > Spell Pack
    >> Hero SP (?)
    >> Unit SP (?)
    >> Random Spells (?)

    System Section :
    > Key Systems (better naming, I'm suck with names for these xD)
    >> Extensions
    > Snippets

    Code Categorization :
    > GUI
    > UMSWE GUI (?)
    > Jass
    > VJass
    > CJass
    > Zinc
    > Wurst
    > vrJass (?)
    > xJass (?)

    I think it's better that way, than what Jass section we have now.

    It's not about vocabulary. It's about what the word "demand" implies. Ralle is not a waitress that you can give orders to and demand stuff from. You can "suggest", "offer ideas", "express opinions". You don't "demand".
    Atleast that's how I get it...

    You're not paying someone to do something that YOU 'demand', they're doing it because they like the site, so please, sit down your ego a little.

    The new site is neat and clean, of course, but one think i don't like is that it looks like Windows 7 compared to 8 or 10... For me a huge step to "?@!*...
    Warcraft is really old and so the site should stay like it is. Will this old site be still usable after the launch of Hive 2.0 ? :p

    I think it'll be archived like when this site originally got ported.
    So no new content will be able to be created in this hive, although all the content from here will be ported to Hive 2.

    From my view, its login system behaves Window 8's components' function. It is more vivid, applicable and clear.

    Hmm... I'm not sure with Battle.net. Garena+'s WC3: TFT's player amount is about 46135 despite it is old. Taiwan players and Hong Kong players play WC3: TFT by using WC3: TFT files in 1.26 version and convert it to chinese version so Garena+ players who play WC3: TFT in English version cannot see that they are actually playing WC3: TFT (Reason: they use chinese version of WC3: TFT -> can be considered as hidden). There are many NotD: Am clans in Singapore. NotD: Am clan in Taiwan is the most popular.

    NotD: Am = Night of the Dead: Aftermath.

    There are also many RPG players who play WC3: TFT in Garena+. Some of them who know THW are confirmed to like THW as they play THW's maps so much.

    I can sense that THW/Hive 2 will release new stuffs since there are WoW and SC2. :)

    Well, i registered today but i don't really seem to be able to do many things other than "view" them, it doesn't give me permission to change my avatar post, use status,upload, use pastebin and things. (Do i have to accept an email or something, i checked my email there was none)

    Xenforno's cool tho.

    Well, i checked spam there's no email regarding the hive workshop verification. (None in inbox either)

    Checked contact details and the email is correct.

    I use Yahoo mail.

    Edit: I'll try using my Microsoft account.

    Edit2: It worked, the problem happens with yahoo emails perhaps.

    Yep, I think Yahoo is very strict or something. The email server was set up in a hurry.

    I recall Social Groups are carried over, how will this apply, as I'm curious since with the current state, I can't define the mechanic of future system for social groups.
    I have more or less eyesight of how reps will work there, at least those likes button has to go :D

    Avatar also upload in a better fashion, it uploads far easier than I accustomed to in Hive 1.
    And please, don't retracts the ability to comment on status messages :)
