    Hello guys
    As many of you know I am working on a complete rewrite of The Hive Workshop.

    At first I thought of a forum structure similar to the current one, with more separated game sections and resource sections for each game. This would be a good way of continuing the current hive... But now I am thinking otherwise. I wanna deal with the site from a whole new approach.

    Facebook is popular because it is extremely social and you can express your feelings in so many ways. I am thinking about taking some of the concepts from Facebook and implementing them on THW.
    People should be able to become fans of projects, maps and various other submissions.
    Instead of showing peoples reputation count, we will be displaying their amount of friends instead.
    We will have the option to "Like" certain events, resources, maps and users.
    The chat will be embedded on every single page so you always can get in touch with all other online users.

    You could call it HiveBook but I think our current name will suffice.

    I am already working on it and I like what I see...

    UPDATE: After the 1st of april I don't think this is a good idea anymore ;)

    Ralle, I love this idea. I've always liked the social aspect of Facebook and the community of the Hive. And what better idea than to put them together.
    I don't like Facebook that much for a few reasons. I don't go on the internet to socialize with people I know in real life. I go on to socialize with people I've never met, complete strangers. I know many of us have added Hive users to our Facebooks in a feeble attempt to capture the essence of the Hive's amazing community, but end up disenchanted and disappointed when they find out that all of their friends on the Hive are creepy. But with this new Hive feature, we can socialize with out good friends on the Hive without having to look at their unsettling faces.
    Thanks Ralle, you're a genius.

    This is awesome! Make sure that the chat lags and disconnects users every now and then for a more authentic feeling! :D

    Well its a good idea but there are some things that are kinda... mmmf...

    Chat embedded in evey page? some people don't like the chat... and for a reason... i think we should let people include themselves in aspects of the hive IF THEY WANT... having a chat page is a good idea.

    Friends instead of reputation i also think is kindof silly. reputation tells the same kindof thing about you that friends do. frieds are what they sound like... friends... people will be like OMG he soooooo popular hes got 200+ friends! some people are good users but are not popular or hate to be so... please... maybe add friends... but don't make it the only thing to show... either keep rep or don't have anything.... antoehr suggestion is to parce rep into two. popularity and submissions ect. but i'm not one to get into a repfight.


    I like... liking (lol), becoming a fan, and subscibing. also make it so people can make easily operated private user-groups. and making chat more acsessible... but DON'T force chat upon us. please... becuase us with our 20 kbs connections wont be able to stand it!

    Otherwise i think its a GREAT idea! :D :D Go Ralle! XD

    I think that it can be good idea I mean all that about becoming map (project) fan, friends and stuff, but how will you create chat that will hold 200 or more online users at same time?

    Sounds actually pretty good.
    But that Friend amount meter sounds pretty... meh... imo.
    But yeah, that "Like"-button sounds awesome.
