New website!

Post by Rapsey » Fri Oct 11, 2019 8:30 pm

Note: if the website looks f'ed up to you, please try doing a hard refresh by using ctrl-F5 (or command-F5 on a mac).

It's been in the works for a long time but now it's finally here: a complete overhaul of our entire website! Rather than doing a radical redesign we have opted to stay true to the design you are all familiar with, and have instead focussed our efforts on modernising and improving everything. While things may look more or less the same as they used to, most of what you're seeing has been rebuilt from the ground up.

This release encompasses a huge number of changes and improvements, so instead of making a full changelog we will only highlight the most significant changes.

Overall:
  • A complete modernisation of the website theme. The website has become a lot more consistent and there's icons and stuff.
  • Full mobile support. Say goodbye to the bright mobile theme for the forums (and to the lack of proper mobile theme for everything else). Our main website theme should now be as comfortable to use on mobile as it is on a regular PC.
  • Various performance and security improvements.
Forum-specific:
  • Emoji support.
  • @mentions.
  • Notifications (for mentions, quotes, replies to your posts, replies to bookmarked topics, topics created in subscribed forums, ...). You can manage your notification settings here. If you want to receive notifications for any further posts made on topics you have posted on, you can effectively auto-subscribe to any topic you post on. This option is found on your posting defaults, but please keep in mind it will only take effect for topics you post on after enabling this setting (it's disabled by default). Alternatively you can tick the "Notify me when a reply is posted" checkbox when creating a topic or post.
  • More intelligent quotes. (only affects new quotes)
  • Soft delete for posts
The ideas system has also been rebuilt. It is now completely integrated with the forums, instead of requiring you to navigate through the ideas system to get the ideas interface on top of the base topics. Because it is now mature enough we have decided to start using it for all proposing and voting on suggestions. To that end, about half of the topics from the old In-Game Suggestions forum have been automatically converted into the ideas system (basically all the ones that had recognizable yes/no poll voting options).

The old In-Game Suggestions forum (and all the topics left in it) will still be sticking around. There is still a place for it. While the ideas system is intended to be used for proposing and voting on "finished" suggestions, it is not very suitable for discussing rough ideas or polling community input across multiple choices (or anything other than yes/no).

tl;dr: from now on we have:
  • Discuss Ideas (= the old In-Game Suggestions forum, for extended polling and working out the details of an unfinalized idea)
  • Propose Ideas (= the ideas system with thumbs up/down voting, suggestion ranking, support for marking the dev-status of each suggestion etc)
If there are still suggestions in the discussion section that have a clear yes/no poll but weren't automatically converted, please feel free to point them out to me and I will convert them into the ideas system while preserving the yes/no votes.

Enjoy!
