THen Mike and Sylence my enter key isn't working.. :evil:
Can someone search the game Ultimate Tactics, using the Tactics word? Well I can't :~( On the old site, you could use the search box to search games, even if you type 2-3 or 4 letters.. Now this search box is showing the games that are starting with the word you search, so this ain't no search box :embarrased:

The "all latest games" isn't working yet.
If someone replies to my post, that is placed on some other wall, then I'll get notifiaction? Cause I got notification that Nick has replied my comment on Mike's wall, but when I checked it I coudln't find Nick's answer to my comment.. :/

Kinda complicated, yes. I noticed some operating system specific bugs with HP that caused errors with the search bar, but they were eventually fixed. Pressing enter doesn't do anything, you have to click the game. Also, tactics is up on the home page as top strategy. Or adventure... One of the two.

The enter key doesn't work because your results are shown as you type for now. Keep in mind, I mentioned in my very first post that this site is still "beta" and some features do not work at the moment. I don't see why you are being so negative about the search when it works exactly how it is intended. It says "Search Games" right in it, start typing the name of the game you want and it shows up below.

Notifications about someone replying to your post works just fine, but in your case the poster may have deleted their reply afterwards. I will see if we can add something to delete a notification if a user deleted their post.

@Nick: ???????

@ Sokki: I think I figured out what you're saying. You have to search Ultimate instead of Tactics, because he game is Ultimate Tactics. It has to be in order.

But... wasn't the search function always like that? :S
I mean, that's exactly what we had to back when we had the old site.


Anyway, thought I'd report a bug. Perhaps you may be aware of it, maybe.
It's a problem with the notifications. All my past notifications listed on my notifications page say that they have all been posted X hours ago. At this moment it's showing that they have all been posted 22 hours ago. Basically it's showing as if all have been posted at the same time which is not true. Some were posted months ago. And also the order has been a bit jumbled. For example, my last notification should be that a certain user called Echo left me a message on my profile but instead it shows Sokki.
It may just be that this is a glitch that's occurred with the past and older notifications. As long as this problem does not occur with newer notifications that happen from now onwards, then it shouldn't be too much of an issue to worry about.


And as for my opinion on the look of the site.
Well, I like it, I honestly do. It's just that now it looks very familiar to another site. Really quite familiar. If I had to quantify the similarity, I would say about 60 probably 70%. The colour scheme, the shade of blue in a black background that appears on the sides, that slightly futuristic look too, they layout too, it's very common between this site and the other one I'm talking about. I don't know if I should actually mention the name of the site here (due to advertising perhaps?) but this is what I feel.

Other issues. Well, I liked how previously the likwidgames logo was nice and big. Stood out really well. Now it's just a tiny little thing on the top left. With the way you've changed the site design, I don't really know what much you can do to increase the size but... well... it's not a big issue. It's just my preference. I liked it nice and big. Probably doesn't mean much to most of the people.

And that's about it for the moment. Haven't had time to look through the site that much. I'm absolutely dreading the exams I have coming up in a couple of weeks.


But anyway, congrats Likwid. As I said, it really does look great, it's just the similarity this site has with the other that's my main issue but not much can be done about that I guess. Even then, other people may disagree that there isn't much similarity.

One more small thing.
When I go to My Profile or anyone's profile, one of the first things you can see is their list of favourite games. It's in the format where you can see about 6 in one go and then you can click the arrows left or right to see more.
The arrows however, are grey in colour. When you have a button and it's greyed, it normally denotes that it's not clickable however, in this case it actually CAN be clicked. So would it not be better that if the arrows can be clicked, they be highlighted in a brighter colour (like a bright green or bright blue) and only when it's not possible to go any further, THEN the button be a grey colour.
Porbably might just be a little thing the designer forgot to do.


EDIT: Dang! Sorry for the double post. I forgot I could've just editted my previous post instead. :(

Thanks for the suggestions and bug reports Jamz. I'm not sure what site you're referring to, but please send me a message with it so I can check it out.

There seems to be an issue with the Notification date for some users. I'll check this out.

Also, we haven't added in the disabled state for the favorites arrows, but it's on the list of things to do.

I'm not being negative Likwid, but I can't see the point of having search box that isn't working..

I nkow that you need to type the right word so that the games which are starting with that word will be suggested. But what about all other games? Example on the previous site, whenever I typed word in the search box, and pressed enter, it was opened a new page showing all games containing that word, while on the search box some games would shown in a drop list that would have that word in their name.
Example for old site. If I typed "tactic" there would be shown in a drop list 3 games ("tactic"al assassin 3 parts). But when I press enter, the site will show me all results with the word tactic in their name, including "ultimate tactics" ...

Or maybe I'm doing something wrong.. but I've doing everything same as before :S
