    So, you two are talking about me behind back, thinking that I wont see it. :cgrin:
    By accidentally, I checked site after while, and saw great news! Hive 3.0. Oh, and regarding smiley.... This is one of symbols since it got invented (in 2007), username, :cgrin: greeting. It has long history. It should remain in new Hive if possible, since I see that people are interested still in it.

    I like design as well. That Beta seems to faster load than this version. Oh, I like new ,,View in 3D" so far. And you can check model in all team colors, I like that.

    No, links will stay the same. You can try it yourself, go to a resource page on the main site and replace "www" with "beta". The same resource will load in the beta site.

    Obviously when the new version goes live, it will be on the main domain (not in the beta subdomain).

    I like the search function now. There's a big obvious "SEARCH" bar instead of a tiny inconspicuous "search again" link to the side, so that's an improvement. Seems to run faster too. I prefer the reputation points and the gems/whatever you call them that we have now. They are a lot more fun than a generic xp bar. I always see someone with like 3 gold gems and 2 silvers and think "damn, theyre so powerful, so many gems!"

    While I do like rep, I would almost prefer a pure number over gems.
    Because I no longer know what each gem represents.

    On the top of my head, I have no idea how much rep three blue and two green gems are worth. I would have to hover to check.
    The level or whatever is plainer.
    HOWEVER, honestly not a fan of blindly rewarding posts/threads regardless of content.
    At least with rep it's up to others to judge if your post/thread was worthwhile.

    So my theoretical redesign would be to keep the current reputation system, but remove the gems and just write out the number.

    This brings to mind that video of Strong Bad talking about when he realizes that fans spent more time creating fan stuff about the world around him than the time that was spent making the source material upon which it was based.
    If Reforged is a web page, and Hive 3 is a stylistically similar webpage that more time was spent to make, why don't we just cut to the chase and put the "Start Game" button into the Hive HTML files instead of the main glue screen webui ones?

    (In theory I might be joking, but I'm not sure. I actually have no idea how much time was spent to make the main glue screen webui of Reforged.)

    Absolutely wonderful. This is a huge step-up if not a real leap in design, just as the Hive deserves. The amount of work and effort put into this manifests in every way when I scroll and transit from page to another.

    This took a while to load for me on my very slow 2MBPS 4G (I am using this temporarily), I guess that's due to the high-resolution style images used. Which is no biggie for others probably with better nets, also the second time around opening the site should function better since my browser saves the resources used.

    I have encountered no bug so far, not that I noticed. My honest opinion is a theme like this deserves its own font rather than the default font. I feel like the font no longer matches the "feels" the design gives so in that context, a change in font may be in favor of an even look. That, of course, remains my own opinion and doesn't necessarily have to be implemented.

    Keep up the good work, it's really nice to see the Hive still growing without looking older but younger and more lively ! Props to yall. Thanks for the amazing work.
