[#55]

Yeah I know it's been a couple days!! I just fixed the weather now tho. Cry

The front page is finally live, after a year of procrastination, yay! Relief

The design is by Yai, praise and thanks be to her!


Changes

  • Same ol' news section but in a new place.
  • Version history reduced to an info bar. History is still available, of course.
  • New Current Events & Sales. Make sure to edit these when you put new stuff in the news!
  • The daily shadow missions box is slightly smaller and in a new location.
  • Real-time Mabinogi Server Status with server load information added. See here.
  • Weather widgets. It shows the current forecast for each zone (you can scroll that thingy) and also some rain-specific info.


The rainy weather activities show what I thought were the important aspects of rainy weather bonuses. In order, it shows:

  • The most intense rain right now
  • When the next thunderstorm is
  • Where the best place to refine is (that is, the rainiest place with furnaces) right now
  • Where the best place to perform synthesis or other alchemical activities right now
  • Where the best place to do carpentry is right now
  • And lastly when the next thunderstorm is in Rano for the FH statue

If there's anything else I didn't think about I'd be interested to hear it!


Future plans

  • There are timers already designed I just have to vet them more to make sure they're accurate with regard to timezones. I'm not super enthused about it.
  • We need something more useful to newbies than a giant sitemap, sort of "how do you navigate mabi 101" type stuff. I imagine this would be in the form of high level guides. I want there on the front page sort of replacing the site map we had before.
  • Most recent forum posts box?? Because reading the log is kind of annoying.
  • Some fanciness to the MSS that literally won't matter to anyone.


This thread is mostly about comments and complaints about design and like "god why would you change things". Broad-form feature suggestions are also okay but discussing features is probably more useful in the project thread.

You can find the project page for the front page here.

I still say news on left and events on right is a better layout, news will change much more frequently than events and should be found by typical scan order first.

»I still say news on left and events on right is a better layout, news will change much more frequently than events and should be found by typical scan order first.«
I asked the original designer and she disagrees. It's because of the widths of the other elements, apparently. I would add that even though news is probably more frequently updated, the other summary information basically covers everything the news does, anyway.

Feel free, of course! We do have the fansite link but if you mean to make a thread to talk about the changes, you're always welcome to.
