Infobar above Sidebar

Post by Kenzu on Sat Aug 08, 2009 4:18 pm

I poropose moving the infobar (where it states gametime, kuwal and other crucial info) above the sidebar (the colorful buttons) to keep most important information at the top.

This will of course force players to scroll down if they want to click at the lowest buttons such as log out, achievements, vote and bulletin board.

The infobar is viewed much more frequently during one session than the buttons I have mentioned now.
I look at achievements a few times per month, vote once a day, and check the bulletin board once in a couple of days and click the log out button only once per session, however I look at the infobar almost after each purchase to see how much kuwal I have left.

I think it wont change anything besides the fact that players can save time.

i find no problem with the current layout - the same as it has been in almost all the games i can recall, however on my mouse i have the little scroll wheel so i dont need to use the scroll bar on the left hand side of the browser which im guessing you have too wasing time.

what i would suggest is tht the admin place the 'infobar' in a horizontal layout, and code it so that it is constantly on the bottom of the screen, and if you scroll up/down then it too would go up/down. Iv seen this used a lot in stupid spam advertisments wher the end result is that you consatnly see the add. Dont know wether this woudl cause any problems inthe coding side, or affecting the bank and inbox links.

That is very agressive and rude advertising.
I block all the sites that i visit and have such pop-ups or ads like that and never visit them again. Thus if you plan to do that, you should put an option for a classic view like it is now.

Why not consider an info bar that is somewhat small that is not included in the main scrolling window, and includes information that will always be available on screen? Some sites do it that way, and it isn't very intrusive as far as I know. Unless you make the bar way too large, and clog the wrong part of the screen. If the bar was something like a half inch, or one inch tall on the bottom of the screen, that might work. It could include everything that is currently included in the current info bar, plus a few other tidbits of information.

I'd prefer it be horizontal, under the notifications, and split so as to only put kuwal out and the kuwal in bank under notifications, and leave the rest where they've always been. I don't scroll down to see my rank or game time. I scroll down to see kuwal out. Actually, game time above notifications wouldn't hurt Very Happy. I often enjoy watching the turn change.

you don't NEED to see them all the time. I prefer to have easy access to my sections when I'm not on the base page. Won't matter at all how much kuwal I have out when I'm looking at a covert log.

Maybe make it appear above the sections on the battlelog. Though, if you're gonna put it differently somewhere, might as well do it everywhere. You could always place it instead of the aderan wars banner on the top half.

personally I'd love to see it displayed horizontally where the top ad is now on every page and you can always see the info in every screen then.

We are an elite group of frisbee players that have decided to take our adventures in a different direction.We are no longer the murderous folk our ancestors once were. Our goals in life are simply to blow up human corpses into thousands of little pieces and the scavenge through their belongings and take everything. If you wish to join this gang of ninjai just think really hard about it...and by utilizing my ninja skill i will be able to tell you want to join and will form a telekinetic mind link in which i will evaluate your usefulness to the clan.
If you do not meet the requirements, odds are, while I am in your brain...I'll change your desktop background and probably call your mother and talk to her about the weather. If, however, you are deemed worthy...you will be instantly cast into the gauntlet in which you will learn the ninja arts or die trying...once passed, you will be a standing member of z0mg Ninjas.
Look for us where ever you see no pants.....well wait...don't look there...unless I guess you want to look there...but I mean...we're the only ones who don't have pants..so you probably would wanna look there...so...umm in conclusion......uhh.....we have no pants.

Try to keep buttons you click, all on the same side of the screen. But..., I do like the info bar so far. Very Happy

If he goes to it, then it will all be operational, right now its just temperary so everyone can see and vote, so its not needed for everything to work.
