Star Wars: Armada Forums
I like this place. Functionality seems good to me.
I'm not sure if it's my monitor being fairly wide but it feels like the functional forum part of the page takes up roughly the middle half and the background image takes up the remaining half (one quarter to each side). Maybe widen the forum a bit?
That's all I've got. Otherwise looks good.
Should be fairly easy to do. I'll add it to the list.
Edit: Better? Might mess with the borders still.
A bit better, yeah. Still a bit too narrow for my liking (once you factor in the sidebar and the background graphic around 40% of the page is actual forum space) but I acknowledge others may feel differently.
Awwww yeeeee new forum.
Yeah looks a little small at high resolution. Wouldn't mind seeing the main forum get wider. For now I just blew up the scale in chrome and it seems pretty readable.
Thanks for setting this up!
This is what it looks like now. Less background graphic but it's been replaced with just the basic central bar and no more text space.
I want to be clear I view this as collaborative troubleshooting and not criticism ;).
No worries, I appreciate the feedback. I'm fiddling around with the editor right now, and if I were a more responsible person these changes would be previewed first. I've removed the grid lines which is a start; now I'm toying with the idea of deleting the sidebar. (Assuming that's an option in the editor.)
Greetings all! I will be checking this out on my cell phones, both my personal Android and my work iPhone. Currently looking good on my Android so far. Text modifying is easy enough and the screen seems the right size. Although my poor eyes have been squinting a bit as I've been staring at a laptop screen all day with work. Thanks for the invite.
I’m on mobile and am encountering a significant delay between screens when loading. The forum disappears for a second so it’s a bit jarring. Here’s the screen in between.
Yeah, I get that but just for about a second. Could it be your device or download speed? I’ve now switched to an iPhone 8+ (better on my eyes lol).
Definitely could be download speed as I am on cell data. Will check on PC when I get home.
Oh and thank you Jabbawookiee for setting this up!!
Love the new forum... Is it too early to complain that The Jabbawookiee hasn't posted a new article in forever?
New article predictions thread?
AMG is apparently headquartered in my city though... maybe it's time to invest in some climbing gear and a good pair of binoculars.
@Bertie Wooster I knew something was definately missing.
Ctrl + (PC) or Apple + (I think) could be potential solutions for high-res monitors.
Feature from the old forums that would be nice to include here is notifications of if folks responded to your messages that aren't an email.
I want to know if someone replied to a post of mine, but I definitely do not want to get an email every time someone clicks like on a comment I made. Doesn't seem to be a middle ground at the moment.
There's a page for them on your profile (linked by the bell icon as well), and a notifications bar that I disabled because they wouldn't clear. I'll look into bringing it back, that would definitely be more convenient.
Edit: it's a known bug, but not a recent one. We'll see if their support team can be of help.
Impatiently waiting for articles on the next wave of ships. Anyone else ready for an announcement?
