Hey everyone, this is basically just a reminder that we will be changing over to the new site relatively soon. Nothing is set in stone, but its probably going to happen this weekend when we see footage of SWBF3 at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim!

Now I am one of those people who does not like change at all, and initially when we talked about making a new site I had some concerned feelings. But now that I have seen the new site all of those feelings have gone away. I hope you guys will like it as much as I do. I'm going to make sure that it can do basically everything that this site can and more (Khaos has been doing great putting up with my nitpicking).


Some of you might have already seen the new site wary. To those of you guys that have seen it what do you think so far? What do you like? And more importantly what do you dislike?

I would highly suggest you make the widgets on the forum transparent and make them be the only thing that scrolls; that way there isn't an overwhelming amount of white without showing the nice background. How it is now on the portal if you scroll down to the chat box you cant see the background and it looks pretty vanilla(literally too). I Really like the logo and the buttons(top), but maybe make the logo a tad bigger to really make it grab your eyes.

On the buttons i think it would be helpful to have the tabs open up in a new tab instead of on your current page without right clicking.

Maybe since we will probaly be removing the chat we could put clan/community links who are closely affiliated with the BFC with the logo of the clan/community.

Just a few suggestions off the top of my head, you guys are doing an amazing job with the site though. If you guys need help with GFX or anything just hmu and ill do my best:cool:

Don't worry, right now the xat chat will stay until at least the end of Season 12. Not everyone can eve get to that on their phones though I guess, need a browser app that has flash enabled. We'll stick with what we have until the end of the season and then we will be experimenting with alternatives. We won't switch until the new one has most of the features that xat does. Being able to work on mobile would be one of those features and its likely it would actually work better on phones than our current setup.

Thanks for this post Naga, super helpful and its exactly what I was looking for.

I know exactly what you mean with this and I'll post about it on the new site to Dark. Having the background image show at all times might be a good idea.

Yea I like the stuff at the top bar too, right now that particular part with the logo and the top buttons is still being worked on, we may do something involving changing images in that area of the site.

I brought this up about links on the forums being opened in the same window rather than a new tab or window too. Its easy to change so we may or may not do it. Not all of those buttons at the top are at their final form yet.

 We're gonna keep the xat chat until the end of Season 12 at the very least. I have been firm in my stance with other staff members that we will always need at least some form of a text based chat on the site for its visitors. Once the seasons over we can experiment with non-xat alternatives.

Thank you. I'll add you to my mental list of people who can potentially help with random tasks.

I'm glad you like it, I think its pretty great in its current form. The top part of the site may change later but I like it for now.
