New VIEW Page Changes... Nov. 26th, 2004 @ 09:59 AM Reply

So has everyone noticed the minor changes to the Portal VIEW pages? The ratings system now uses a logo set that was conceptualized by NG users! We also now show the submission icon on the page, so if you don't submit an icon, it will use a default image (which isn't nearly as cool).

The area where Pico once sat has been changed for usability purposes, not to mention the page should now download a bit faster. They are small changes, but what does everyone think?


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Awesome possum tom. Two things I can suggest though, I love seeing pico, and take it easy on the pop-up's in the portal, My google pop blocker counter is soaring higher and higher from the portal alone, otherwise, i <3 NG more than you know.

It's looking pretty good, and i think the placement around the page is a lot better now too. The only thing that doesn't look so good is the "Watch This Movie" text, it looks like it is aliased/ set to low quality.

I think the new page layout is awesome. I've already added Icons to all of my movies. And I really can't wait for the "Submit to a Collection" button to become available.

Nice job ;)

Just an idea, you might want to make the thumbnail picture a link to open up the movie, too.

I see no problems Tom.

In my opinion, the change was great, but I would have spent the time on making the Audio Portal more like the Flash Portal.

You have hyped up the Flash Portal a lot, but have negliected to make the Audio Portal just as exciting to visit.

Also, in the Audio Portal, you shouldn't have every song on the Genre's page. Makes the load times horrible.

Nice, Tom. Although this might take a little while to get used to, I'll try to get pcitures of my movies before I submit and for my older ones. One quick question, though. When's the "Submit To Collection" button going to start? It's just been sitting their for the longest time.

Yep, like it a lot. Excellent work. An interesting addition to first impressions of a movie/game.

Not strictly on-topic, but I have to agree with RedCircle, the AP is in dire need of a major structural overhaul. Hope you can spare some time to look into that in the near future...

That's fucking awesome, Tom. I already updated all my submission icons.

Oh, and I was at BlockBuster yesterday trying to rent Alien Hominid, but they said they don't have it and weren't going to get it. I don't want to buy it yet though, because Christmas is coming up. I really want to play it :'(

You should have the WATCH THIS MOVIE text big like it was before, with the ratings below it in smaller text. The ratings don't need an icon because to be honest, no one takes them seriously anyway.

It's not into effect yet. It's so you can reccomend movies into a certian collection. Like a clock movie into a clock collection. Then when it has enough reccomends it will be placed there auto, so Tom doesn't have to do it all the time.

~ I think this is the basic way it will happen, but not exactly.~

-Great work Tom!

The new layout looks great.
And it loads faster, too, and the option to add icons is cool, it gives you a better idea of what the flashes will look like. On the other hand, it might cause people to base their votes on that picture, so you might want to consider that.


fucking magnets man how do they work

Putting the icon on the view page is awesome. It'll hopefully encourage people to put their own custom icons.

The text is a bit dull, where is says play game /movie. But nice other wise. Now i can blam things without even watching the movie. All i need is that little shot of it!!! Nice.

well made changes. i noticed them all of a sudden yesterday. It's neat that people finally get to have their own little 'icon' and the rating system is cleaned up.

the add to collections button doesn't make sense to me, but i guess thats for u guys.

good one!

When I was looking through my Grounds Gold account a few weeks before the updates, on the "Portal Submissions" page, I already did notice a "46x46" little image and stuff. And I understood something was being planned, and that we could expect an update sooner or later hehe.

Anyways, I think that the update is just GREAT. I have already added a little avatar to all my movies. It really does add a whole lot more of fun and interactivity to the page. Each page is now kinda "unique" if you will. A really brilliant update guys !
Nice one !
Keep doing changes and making NG a better place ! :)
