Major Changes Big & Small!
WiiWareWave has changed alot over the years, some changes have been bigger than others. Today's update is definitely one of our bigger updates in the past year with a few great new features as well as an aesthetic overhaul with new colors and fonts throughout our website!
The most notable change is to our toolbar at the top of most pages, it is no longer glued to the top of the page, this was done as a work-around to an issue that our update caused. In the right side of the toolbar there's a new option called CB with a number after it. This is a new chatbox indicator that shows the total number of users in the chatbox and when you click the text a mini-chatbox will come down. It's not usable in it's current form, but it shows the online users and has a link to the full-page version of the chatbox so you can jump right in if you see someone is in the chatbox! The user counter updates upon page change and sounds have been added to our notification system, but they only play if you use an up-to-date version of Chrome or Firefox!
This feature is in beta so there could be other issues with it so be sure to report any problems so we can fix them!
Another major feature that we changed up a bit is the like system, the old one was broken so we added a new one. Click the green arrow in the bottom right side of forum posts, articles, and blog comments to upvote a post. Liking posts pays too as every legitimate like will earn members 3-5 WiiWareWave Coins for our forum shop!
We also altered our quick reply box in the forums and blogs to display your avatar as an added aesthetic touch! We also changed our background back to the "Classic WiiWareWave" one, for now.
That's not all! We completely revamped our site's color-scheme and fonts to make things easier to read!
More changes are in the pipeline including new online indicators for profiles, ditching the ranking system and adding staff badges "to substantially boost loading times" and Round "porthole" style avatars!
What do you think of the changes and new features? Do you like them? Have you run across any issues with our website? Be sure to let us know in our comments section below!
Update: The mini chatbox does indeed work, but only if there are messages in the chatbox at the time, otherwise the text editor won't appear.
