As you may have noticed over the past few days, the site has undergone some changes. We've added widgets to the side, displaying different features, such as the staff, different links, and affiliates to other weapons.

Most recently, the "Citizen" and "Military" sections of the worlds have been removed, which, for now, is a temporary action. If there is enough positive feedback, then it will stay like that. If there isn't, then we'll return the sections.

Overall, how do you guys feel about the recent changes (particularly the removal of the "Citizen" and "Military" sections)? Feel free to explain why you feel that way, as well.

The images on the side should be the avatars of the staff for convenience's sake. It makes things easily recognizable to newer members. Although it can be argued the colored named are enough.

I feel the sections being removed were for the best. There's no reason to have a subforum for a single topics. The "Title Name" section would be a suitable enough area to hold that information.

I overall support the new interface and would have loved to do something along these lines (on this or any site I've made) if I knew how.

I'm also glad that smileys are back. elephant

Generally I think the changes are pretty good.

You already know my opinion on the polls, that I think there should only be one, if any (the character of the month). Only because I don't think the member of the month one is entirely necessary, or as much based on merit as it is on popularity, and runs the risk of members feeling dejected when they receive little/no votes (although I guess the same could be said of character of the month...).

I also agree that the staff images should just be the staff's avatars. I can kinda see what you were trying to do with the picture's you chose, but nothing is really going to represent the staff member as much as their own avatar, which will also make them more easily recognisable to members (which I believe is the point of the widget?).

As for the removal of the citizens and military sections, I don't really feel too strongly either way. However if they stay gone, I think that the descriptions of the 'leader' sections, (Mayor xxx, King xxx, etc) should be updated to include that is now where you can post to become a citizen, join any military etc.

Otherwise, well done!

I agree with Etzolix on the forum condensing.

The widgets are an amazing addition to the site. It's increased the functionally of the site, as well as making the homepage more professional. The increased number of shortcuts has made the site flow better, making it easier to work around the site.

I love the new look. It's very professional and increases user-friendliness. I like how the chatbox is on the portal, too. I personally don't see the need for the 'citizens' sections but the 'military' ones seem slightly useful still. However, under 'Apps', do you realize 'Gummi' is spelled incorrectly...?

It's surprisingly not hard. You just need basic HTML coding (which you can google), very basic Photoshop CS3 knowledge (also google, and also, very easy, as in, you just click, click, click), and knowledge of the admin panel.

I'll update the descriptions of the Leader sections if we decide keep it this way, because it would involve a lot of tedious work to do it, and then to erase it.

As for the staff pictures, I'll change them back, probably, sometime next week.

Congrats, Matthew, you actually noticed that, which I was hoping nobody would, because I haven't gotten around to changing it.

I really like it. It makes so much better use of the space, and it just looks more tasteful. The site's so much easier to navigate now, and even has some -for lack of a better word- cute new features, like the otM's. I really like the label image font things. It all just makes the site seem more personalized and professional.

I like it. This way everything's a lot cleaner and it makes perfect sense to use this particular layout.

So. Can you get the military information for me if we are getting rid of the section? My military stuff was saved on a different laptop so the stuff on the site was my only copy.

Yes. I plan on moving all of the previous topics into the "Leader" section if we decide to get rid of them. I haven't done so yet, because that would involve tedious work that I might have to undo later on. But, yeah, don't worry. Nothing is ever, really permanently deleted on this site.

Personally, the only part we should still have is citizenship part. Militia part would be too pointless of conflict between alliance and world milita.

But yeah, I like the new look.
