Not really a solution if you're using a laptop.

Not that I care, I'm running 1680x1050, with large maps on, and with the thing on the side and it still seems empty.

This update is a complete waste of time. You'd be just as well giving them "BOB" as standard. Surely you admin people have better ideas for updates.

Speaking of which, why not have an interactive map where attacks, reinforcements, etc are done by clicking on the map?
Live long and prosper.

Great add-on but ... if one uses BOB like I do, it does not add anything else, really. Is there a way to disable this? It will however be usefull when I login with my iPhone !

That's exactly what happened... Giving BOB as standard. Seeing as how BOB is completely third party and all...

Make it an option from the Game Settings menu?

Game Page stats "right of the map"; "below the map"; or "off"?

Now this will be good to create,in this way you will solve all people problem.
I will imediatly put this statistic "off",because i dont need that.Ofcourse other people who like can activate this statistic.

Game Statistics: Horizontal - Vertical - Off



This works for me. I think overall use of the space can be done better. I will have a mock up made later to show what I mean.

I saw a post in the announcement thread that I thought should be seen here:
j35t3r.us wrote:Hmmm, it seems like we keep making the screen WIDER...

How about we knock off the Game Menu section on the Left most of the screen and relocate that above the game map and stuff.

I know its a full site redesign or whatever, but with the size of some of the maps paired with people's names/ranks, and now the new statistics addon, I'm thinking we definitely need the FULL VIEW of our screen related to the map/game we're in.

Thoughts?

I even went so far as to mock up a rough (Okay, watch-your-fingers-you-might-get-splinters rough but, hey, I'm no artist) layout.
Click image to enlarge.

I moved the logout to the upper right since it had to be moved and a lot of web pages put the login\out there. Also, the menus that were moved from the left panel could be made into drop downs and put in the same line as Home, Instructions, etc.

This arrangement allows for less horizontal scrolling. In fact probably the only people that would have to scroll horizontally are those, like me, that have a small screen resolution (1024x768) and use large maps (getting old is playing havoc with my visual acuity).

I have no idea how difficult it would be to program this but lack did ask if there was a completely different solution. The top and left panels seem to be consistent across the entire site, so would it just be a matter of changing it in one place and having it apply to all?

frankly, i like it. i never had any luck getting greasemonkey or bob up, and i wasted a lot of time counting everyone's territories and troops.
i saw bruce's (bruceswar) post and since you guys liked his proposal, let me add that i also play on grand strategy and they have the stats on a separate page and you simply click on the stats button and you get everyone's vital information (territories, men, cards, and a few more stats which i play little attention to).
now if you could only do something about the damned dice. they've always been bad, but lately, its been off the scale.
yes, i know, everyone complains, but i have kept track of my dice rolls and i know that i am well below average, and have never been above average. (and never is the operative word.)

Thanks for the feedback, I read every post (and I especially appreciate the mockup, Ffraid).

I'll prepare a few mockups of my own based on your feedback and put them to a vote in the coming days...

Indeed... and of course the new extra width added by this update means that the maps are less likely to be given extra width...

Unless, of course, we can get the UI redesigned...

Now that Javascript is forced on... just implement the "hide menu" code that I wrote for BOB...

That will give you a massive amount of real estate...

Personally I prefer to have the "hide menu" on as the "Game" setting - which means it only happens in the games... and not in the forums.

Which I think is the best mix - but it would be ace if you can code it as selectable.
