V2 Progress: Layout Is Coming Together! Minor Adjustments and Bug Fixes!
Posted 08-05-18 12:32
I've almost finished the layout for V2! I need to make it 100% responsive based on the device its being viewed on (for my poor mobile users! D: I'm sorry V1's layout sucks for mobile!) and is still clear to use! After that, we're good to go!
I've also made some minor adjustments on V2's first few pages: The news page has its pagination added as well as the comments page! So now, if there's more than 20 news posts or news comments, buttons to visit the next page of content will pop up!
I've also been adding in better icons and alternative titles to streamline everything and make the site a lot more accessible (V1 is really terrible with accessibility over all)
I also wanted to see what you guys thought about the judges getting a bias against something? If you don't know, V2 is going to have judges that determine the tide of a show's results. If they have a bias towards a sport or breed, they'll score horses in that sport or of that breed higher in shows (all shows; so even if its a conformation show, if they're partial to Show Jumping horses, they'll give those horses a little point bonus). But I wanted to see how you guys felt about the judges having a bias against that would dock a few points from the horse's score.
For example: I have a Friesian and Chincoteague trained in Dressage. My judge just LOVES dressage (that's why I entered the show) and they typically add +2 - 6 points to the score sheets, but I find out too late that they hate Friesians for what ever reason (probably the lack of color diversity...) so my score bonus is going to be negated to some degree because the horse is Friesian, but the Chincoteague will have a full bonus.
The bonus or deduction isn't going to be extreme (not more than 10 points in either direction), but it can easily be the difference in a not-so-good horse getting a your ribbons if they hit a breed or sport bonus and yours hits a penalty.
I also will be adjusting the horse database to include their sport stats having the hidden genetics so we can test that out when we get rolling ;3 Which brings me to my last announcement:
Staff Round up time!!
I'm going to be fixing and adjusting only a handful more things for V2 (something I hope to have done within the next week or two) before bringing the mods and mentors over to train for V2! If you're listed below, you're a staff member and you'll need to message me to let me know you're active (so you don't get passed with training!) and I'll make sure to send you an invite to sign up with once things are ready!
Jen (#11351) Checked in!
Cosiel (#11399) (Also a Mentor) Checked in!
Purpleponies (#11337) (Also a Mentor) Checked in!
Cora (#11269) Checked in!
SODA (#1528) (Away)
Kaos (#9833) Checked in!
PintoBay (#11814) Checked in!
Lakia (#11791) Checked in!
If you don't message me, you are NOT losing your job as a staff member, but you'll be put on reserve! This just means you won't get on V2 before the rest of the site and you'll be training after regular players are already running around.
There are still 2 Mentor/Newbie Helper positions available!
If you want to help others and would like to join the staff team, please visit the Staff Application Center to fill out an application! Any additional Mod applications will be put on reserve for the future when we're in need of more mods, but we're still looking for 2 or more Mentors (because of the system I'm putting in place)!
