New site

  • #1, by NigecFriday, 14. October 2016, 14:01 4 years ago
    Kategorie should be catagory in the Write A New Article page
    IE11 (again) has loads of issues, language swaps and wont commit news
    The language is English not American.. the flag

    After all these years I'm disapointed to see the German divide is still here, you have no idea how much this puts other nationalities off, its not just the lazy English people, its normal these days to have a single common language, it doesn't matter where people are in the world they can muddle through..
    At the end of the day its your choice but I think you're wrong and losing clients
    Lee is the saving grace, luckily he goes through the German topic and answers in English, but if you don't know what the topic means we don't find the answers
    This is an example:

    I don't mean to offend anyone but shouldn't this type of thread be for all the community?

    Hi Nige, 
    I understand that you are American and english is your mother language. But here in Europe not everybody can speak proper english. Most people from Italy, Spain or France for example are not good in english... and I know a lot of them. Also we have teenagers or children here from school classes who want to play around with visionaire studio and need help with it. No, they cannot always write in english. 

    We, the Visionaire Studio Team, encourage our users to write in english and we just wished there would only be a single language in the whole world - but as I said before - not everyone is able to discuss technical issues in english. I'm aware of the situation and I understand your opinion, but I believe we shouldn't leave those people behind.

    Some more to say about the new website?

    Best,
    Thomas

    Well this website sure has the modern feeling, even though isn't everyting really big? But that's okay it's just habbit from the old version i guess.

    I need to be honest that there are a few things i miss / don't like here.
    There's no link to the wiki in the top menu. I liked more when the reponse window have been part of the thread itself as mostly i've been reacting to something so i could write and see the previous posts in the same time.

    I miss the wall and the who's online box as it might have not been the most used thing, it makes me feel less connected to the community now. Why did you remove the Lua category and option to filter by categories? Whats the point of having them if you can't filter them.
    Maybe you could forget about the pinboard and just add a left side panel to the main page of the forum with the online box and categories.

    Last minor thing, the search bar could be visible even above the posts itself.

    As Nigec, i don't want to offend onyone, i respect you are trying to evolve this web.

    i would also like to see the wiki link anywhere where i can Access it easily (maybe some static links in a dropdown menu when hovering the book/Handbuch link in the header (link to the official handbook and wiki) 

    also i recognized that the new forum ranks are not visible under the avatar in the threads itself... Edit: which seems to magically fixed right now

    This link will be added soon. We just switched to the new website and there are still things to fix and add. That's normal wink

    I liked more when the reponse window have been part of the thread itself as mostly i've been reacting to something so i could write and see the previous posts in the same time. 
    Thats a bug. It will be fixed soon wink

    Yes, you are right. I will talk with our engineers and hope to add it soon. 

    Why did you remove the Lua category and option to filter by categories? Whats the point of having them if you can't filter them. 
    It is designed and concepted. The programmers just didn't get to it. It will come. 

    Last minor thing, the search bar could be visible even above the posts itself. 
    Good idea smile

    If you delete a forum post the main forum still indicates you are the last person to post, in my case I clicked on Quote instead of Edit in the meantime  ke4-1 posted, I saved my post realized my mistake and deleted my post so  ke4-1 should of been the most recent poster not mine which was deleted

    The fact you can't see the last post is annoying, trying to compose this I forgot  ke4-1 name so I had to open a new tab and look topic that way

    The Engine page the image isn't fitting correctly, I've tried with FF, IE... using Edge at the moment to see if it will post
    Edit:
    Edge works fine

    I appreciate the new customizibility of the forum profiles. The little "most active" posters at the bottom is a neat touch too!

    Thanks Tymor. smile

    I just added the Wiki. More to come...

    If you like take a look to the german manual, I'm writing at the moment. An english manual like this will be started, once the german manual is finished. It will be possible to write such books in collaboration of many users - or alone. Also those books can be exported as a pdf or a ebook. It may be a modern alternative to the wiki.
