Re: Welcome Back - We want your feedback!


I appreciate the effort and layout wise it makes sense, but this color scheme is awful. Teal is very bleh and there's just SO MUCH of it.

With that out of the way ...

Good:
- Location of forum navigation is WAY better.
- Familiar blog feel.
- Notifications and personal details are easy to spot.
- Contrast works in most places, despite yicky color scheme.
- Works very well in Opera Mobile 6.5 with Single Column View enabled (no side scrolling and font size is legible) - on my Blackberry Bold 9900.

Bad:
- Vertical space usage is poor. No need at all for the Forms/IRC Chat/News/Contact Us/[SEARCH] links at the top of the page, as they are covered in the menu. Links in the menu bar could be a tad shorter.
- The site is about 40px too wide to use without scrolling on my Blackberry Playbook tablet (1024x600).Very annoying and disappointing...
- The background gradient is ugly as hell and should be replaced with, at the very least, a dimmed out screen shot from PS2. Check out the World of Warcraft or Everquest II homepages for an idea of what I am talking about.

All in all, the new site is a navigational improvement that you should be proud of. However, artistically it's a little uninspired, but that is easy enough to change within the current layout.

OK... I can't look at this color scheme any more. I'm not sure why, but it makes me hostile. Please email me when the custom schemes are back. Seriously.

Re: Welcome Back - We want your feedback!


maybe the dimmed out hexes would make a better background than the teal gradient?

but maybe it´s too close to the official site then.

I mean, teal is good and all, being one of the VS colors. But you want the site to be perfect, don't you?
If Hamma wanted the perfect color it would be red btw

Hamma has been married longer to PSU then he has to me PSU is one of the most important things in his life

1) New Topics/Posts icons on the main forum index are hard to decipher. May want to make it blatantly obvious... like red PSU icon for new posts. Something that really stands out, at least.

2) Outfit database isn't on front page. At least not that I could see, and I trolled the links and their subcategories. HOW WILL WE EVER MEASURE OUR E-PEENS BY BUMPING OUR OUTFITS TO NUMBER ONE THIRTY TIMES A DAY?!

3) Overall, looks pretty nice. Great job, even if it's Vanu Teal.

It's very far from Vanu teal. More like Br1 NC Rexo...

Thanks!

See this thread on post icons:
http://www.planetside-universe.com/s...ad.php?t=39819

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Outfit Database will make a comeback - we still have all the data it just didn't make the initial feature cut.

Good job guys! Everything I've used so far works fine. Also like the new look, less cluttered.

Looking forward to getting access to the outfit database.

Cheers!

I might be me rather than the site, but now Youtube videos are auto-playing on any pages I visit and the pause button doesn't work.

Edit: No longer happens after a browser restart. Not sure what caused that to happen...

Re: Welcome Back - We want your feedback!


PSU 4.0 looks great!

The only thing I found so far is:

When I click "Forum" or "Social" they both bring you to the forums. This seems a bit redundant unless it will be changed in the near future to something else

Are there any plans to let users change colours of the site to their own preference/empire theme, or is there a way to do this I don't know about yet? =]
