Design Update - Our New Navigation is here


BigBizkit

Recommended Posts

Loved the new layout in the beta, love it even more now with these updates. Don't listen to the naysayers, from a design and UX standpoint, this is literally objectively SO much better. Everything is much more organised, flow of navigation is a lot smoother, and it just looks and feels so much better. And thank you for bringing back the colours, that was basically my only gripe with the beta.

 

I'm looking forward to these other design improvements you mentioned for the future. Keep up the great work!

I didn't ask anything; I want to recover the old version . You put us before the fact accomplished with no choice but to accept like as Panurge sheeps.

happy to clear that up: this is not a change in the design.

The search service struggled momentarily (probably because a lot of people were testing it) and thus failed to display the previews correctly. This should be back to normal now - if it isn't for you, again, that is not part of the new design.

The previews are still there just as before as you can see here: https://imgur.com/a/Xt1dIAM


All the other points though are still valid. Any comments on that?

You know what you have done? You created windows 8 with its tablet style menu. You are forcing a user interface no one was asking for and majority don’t want. And you are seeing the same backlash as windows 8, which is why windows 10 replaced it. We are tinkers, modders, hobbyists , geeks who don’t need a dumbed down system. Nor enjoy one.

Give us at least a toggle to switch to previous menu system. This is awful.


In regard to the notifications, I honestly find the new design to be faster and more responsive. The old design was sluggish and took way too long to load my notifications. Same with the various options to mark them as read or clear notifications etc. Practically instant now, whereas it was not before. But that's just me.

The previous version was fine, at least from my perspective.
I find this one fairly annoying to use... mostly because I feel that the change was completely unwarranted, and I have to waste time getting used to a new set up that is full of, what I see as, dumb user interface choices.
Don't be like facebook and make changes for the sake of changes.


I agree completely.

This is not really relevant to this post. Though since you brought it up, I might as well just chip in and say that the extra layer of security is very useful for those who have published mods. I know I for one wouldn't wanna lose access to all that hard work.

Where is the "Tracked Mods" page located? I can't seem to find it anywhere anymore.

Now you have to click on Mods, while on a game page; before you could just mouse-over Mods, from any page.

Well, this is not intuitive for me. All I see is an ugly black bar on the top which has two ways to get to other games, My Profile and a search which does not include the wonderful drop down menu you had before. How the heck do I even get to the forum without googling it. I really want the old UI back. Why change whats working just fine. Maybe its glitched out somehow today. I sure hope so. I feel like the top bar is literally hiding everything useful.

I don't have any address bar above it. At least you've got that. Horrible redesign and apparently glitched out for me. Before I could pop in a find what I needed. Now I just don't want to come here.
