Simon? X3 You named one paste Simon??
well, anyway, lookin' cool so far Chieftain c:
Well, I'd like to be a liiiitle more impressed, but I'm not totally disappointed either! Since you say the UI is in its early stages, I'll wait to see more.
Right now, the artwork looks really lacking and I really don't like what the forum icons turned into. The missing forum descriptions make it look quite more plain, too.
Is the forum width restricted to a number of pixels, too? A great looking background image would be nice. For example, in the last picture from the hidden box, with the Diablo skin, there's a background image at the top, then there's this sort of wall. Under it, you could place a great looking background image for much joy =)
We had this at one point during 2008 or so. Moderator nicknames were colored according to the sector (area of wc3 modding) they were part of. Then a few people complained and staff nicknames lost their color, the only difference from other users was the bold. Then, eventually, all nicknames turned bold. I was never against colored nicknames and I liked the pattern on the coloring, but I'm not opposed to have all nicknames look alike, either — they're just nicknames, no need to make philosophy out of them.
I suggested achievements once, not for things like «make 1k posts», but more like «have a director's cut resource». However, I remember the reception to that suggestion was quite poor.
Hmmm... wonderful! Wonderful!
Still, may I ask, are there any improvements for SC2 section planned?
I like your idea a lot! I talked about something similar to Ralle not so long ago. Great accomplishments should be appropriately rewarded and achievements/awards/banners/etc.. can work very well.
That looks awesome! I can't wait to see the end product.
Well I do hope there's new features too. It's always pretty exciting to have new stuff.
Can't say I agree to that, and really? You're going to moan about the forum icons...? >.>
- They're icons, you'll get used to them.
I don't agree to this either, better keep it clean for our eyes to better focus on the writings of other users than to be distracted by background images.
On a personal note, I'm not too overly fond of keeping the "night elf" theme, while it's nostalgic, sure, I still like the alternated version in the "hidden" tags, simpler and cleaner yet new and fresh.
Uh, we have awards? If you don't want minor awards to clutter up the space below the user info, you could just set it so it only appears in your award showcase on your profile page like you do runner-up contest awards. It would be the exact same system.
Also I don't like the Like/Dislike system. Never did. The rep system takes care of that job anyways, and is better at it to boot.
Don't worry. As I said we can easily modify XenForo to have reputation.
The early stages of it does look good though I kind of agreed of what Rui said on the lack of forum description but this is just on its early stage so I am sure we are expecting much more change.
Background would look cool on bigger resolution though. Or do you guys really consider keeping the no max width style? I hope not
Here's HTML to mimic the background appearance. Right click the here link and save as .htm file. Then open with Chrome (if you use chrome). Now try to resize the window to tiny size. The grey background disappears.
Red content will modify to the width, while background would disappear.
Now, wouldn't background image fit nicely there when going to larger resolutions?
And we would go back to the mass look? Lots of forums have the reputation system. EXP system with levels would be kewl and unique, also something new. Also, it would fit the warcraft 3 theme fantastically.
Yeah, I agree with jondrean too. The EXP rep thing would be awesome
I just hope it would only show numbers when on low graphics style.
We will have a fluid layout. As XenForo's design is responsive, ours will be the same.
What does this mean for future hive?
It just means THW will be more search engine friendly.
Though hive is already pretty relevant on search engines, but it should ensure that it stays that way
The experience bar is fine I guess, as long as long as there is a similar comment system to what we have now.
i.e. not just an anonymous upvote that feeds the meter.
I hope it's done before January 2014
Best of luck to you Chief!
Consider me grateful to have a look and see into the early stages I am also happy to see that the current night elves theme appears to be sticking around.
Good luck, take the time you need (making design and the page can be a damn time killer) and I'll see it whenever it arrives.
awesome work ralle
might motivate me to get back into some hardcore wc3 modding :3
