Consolidate map list [Done]

Postby Ghost715 on Tue Jul 24, 2007 2:56 am

<Subject>: Consolidate game list
De-clutter list of maps

<Body>: Change map list to be pull-down, put tag to point to small pics of maps on another page.

Suggestion Idea: On Start-a-game and Game-finder there is a busy section where each map has a small picture and radio-button or check-box (btw I like check box better). Consolidate which map to select down to a pull-down box.

Specifics:
.Add pull-down for which map to select.
.Add a link to another page (new)
.Add a new page with the maps small image along with the checkbox to select. Keep the link to a bigger picture of the map intact. Align the images into three columns.

Why it is needed: Make the page smaller, so that more options can be added later, without making the page get too busy.

It seems like a good idea but I don't think that it is really needed.

it could however be put as something you can change in your profile.

ive thought about this before but at the moment its not really needed. However its good to get the conversation started because the number of maps being quenched lately has increased. There is a further 11 maps in final forge with a number of maps in the main foundry not far behind.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

Done! It uses the ticker buttons from our pagination system so you can scroll through the maps quickly. you can also type out the map's name to jump. The Game Finder version allows multiple selections.

Given the large number of maps we have now, I think this is really needed to keep scrolling under control.

Please allow users to change this back in the settings. Seeing the maps all at once was fantastic - I couldn't have imagined taking that away. :|

I agree... Either there needs to be a setting to be able to see all the maps at once, or there needs to be somewhere specific that players can go to see a table of all the maps...

I can't imagine finding new maps to play or that pique my interest using the scroller... Not all of us are familiar with every map out there and know what right to go to and we still need a place to BROWSE maps...

Perhaps we add a browse link that opens up a popup window with all map thumbnails?

Why select all maps, when you can select none? Are the instructions not clear?
if you have no preference for a particular criterion, just leave those boxes unchecked
