Hi everyone! The Newsfeed update is now live on web and iOS in Home Base, and will be up on Android in a few hours. You can check it out now! 

 

Here's a little rundown of what's new in this update:

-The Newsfeed: You can now post text and create comics - talk about your favorite book series and write your own stories!
-Take Selfies: Get ready to strike a pose and take selfies with your friends. You can use them in the comic creator!
-New avatar items: Did someone say new onesies? Because there are new onesies.
-New games: Fly fast in Speed Wings and get accurate with Venom Victory, our two new Wings of Fire games
-Level up rewards: Leveling up isn't just for show, now you get reward tokens every level (and maybe something extra special every 5)
-Various game balances: We played all the games a ton to make the rewards you get feel more fair
-Other various bug fixes/small UI adjustments (weird red square around chat text...begone!)

Becky, I don't know if you have seen my thread about it yet but I am having a party in HB tonight and I wanted to invite you! I thought a mod would appreciate some time off to talk with us young forumers and also the DANCING that will probably happen....

 

The party will start between 6:30-7:00 PM CST tonight. I don't know if you have the time for it or would be interested, but I decided to tell you just in case

 SeaWings are the best tribe. Fite me

So...I got halfway through making a post on the Newsfeed and it lagged me out of the server and then crashed the game

 

(I'll probably come back with more thoughts if I can get access to a computer that A) has a functioning keyboard and B) won't lag so much that I can't use it.)

 

Even ignoring the dysfunctional lag, as far as I can tell that interface is not going to work well for posting fanfic, which is half the reason I'm here

 

Do we have things like italics and bolding? What about different fonts/sizes/colors? Does this thing even have basic text editing functions? It doesn't look like it. I would have tested it, but it, y'know, crashed from lag

 

Is it going to display the entire post on the front page? 'Cause if so, the devs need to pay more attention to how we actually use these forums. #GiveUsBackPostTitles2k19

 

...Do you have the entire game loaded in the background while Newsfeed is open or something??

 

Maybe some of these problems aren't actually problems. I don't know. I can't tell, because as I may have mentioned, it's so laggy it doesn't function.

 

These old forums may be a glitchy broken disaster with a million problems, but they actually work for people, and that makes them superior to all the shiny and new but unusably laggy games in the world.

um, becky, I went on, and have noticed quite a few similarities between the newsfeed and twitter.

 

that is NOT what we want. AT ALL.

 

I was COMPLETELY unexpecting this, I was expecting it to be something similar to this, but smoother, and more along the lines of home base's design, not a twitter-for-kids.

 

please change this, make it more like the MBs. because whoever thought this would be more appealing, thought terrribly wrong.

I’m tbh kind I confused with the whole set up. Would you consider putting a tutorial on there to show us how to use Newsfeed to our best ability before the forums are gone?

Oh good, I'm not the only one who thought of Twitter.

 

The buttons definitely need labels. I don't speak your nonstandard pictograph language.

 

My most important complaint, though, is I'm not sure you developers understand your demographic. People who gravitate towards forum environments DO NOT WANT a game. If we wanted a game we would seek out a game, but I for one actually prefer the simple, primarily text-based interface of a forum. Especially when it works.

I looked at the screenshot of the Newsfeed given on the forum closing announcement thread- while I certainly haven’t seen the whole thing yet, could it be possible to add titles to the posts and have an option to hide extra text, that way we could at least temporarily have something that works more like the forums? Again, I haven’t seen it, so I don’t really know what’s going on, but I just thought I’d put this out there.

@Grif I was talking to Legacy earlier specifically about the colors in the Newsfeed causing anxiety and what we could do about it. Is it the dark blue/white combo that causes issues for you? Would having multiple color schemes/a dark theme/colorblind mode help? Or is the Newsfeed layout itself unfriendly?

 

And for everyone - please throw all your 100% perfect ideal visions for the newsfeed at me. All the features you'd want to see, changes you'd make to the appearance, everything. We will be talking about updates to it soon and while we have a bunch of stuff I think we should add or change, when I can show screenshots of your opinions it helps prove which stuff is wanted/needed.

 

We are very.very. aware that role playing and other things you're used to doing are hard if not impossible in the current setup. We wanted you to have something post-forumpocalypse, even if that something isn't at 100% power. We will make changes over the next few months to take into account what we already know we have to change (the way comments work and scrolling, for instance) and things you push for (like post titles). 

 

We may have unleashed something terrifying but I am very entertained by your memes. There was one I saw with a sparrow in space that I want to print out and have next to my desk at all times. Very glad you are enjoying that aspect. We will be adding more images for the comic creator, including Spirit Animals images.

This probably isn't possible but what if people could submit their own images to be added to the approved images database? They would have to be manually scanned by mods, but each user is only allowed to submit a picture every day or so to avoid giant floods of pictures.

Once again, I haven’t tried Newsfeed yet, but I’m going off of the sneak preview and what everyone else is saying- Ishmael mentioned that HTML coding works for colouring and fonts, but I’m not sure if/how it works on mobile, and a pre-existing text modification system would make things way simpler!

 

Yes, there should possibly be some way to change the colours in the background a bit- maybe let people choose what Font color and have an option for slightly simpler typeface for anyone who might find the current one hard to read or otherwise difficult. And the option to label the buttons on the side would be nice- as someone who doesn’t understand pictures very well, it’d be awesome to have that option, but it could still be turned off for someone who enjoys simpler, sleeker designs.

I am not neurotypical- while it’s not a huge deal for me it bugs me a little bi

To add to what I’ve said above, some kind of PM would be nice- still moderated and filtered by mods and all, but that way we can talk without worrying about stalkers or crashers. I totally understand that it’s a bit of a tricky thing, but I think it’d be nice to see.

It's the layout, mostly- it's very 'violent' looking- maybe make the white a paler blue for those who are triggered by / are senstive to the contrasting colours (yes being able to choose the colour scheme helps- i find it hard to see stuff that isnt in 'night mode' for example), or make the large boxes smaller and 'contained' (see how these have top bars showing the topic you're on?) 

 

It could also help to have the icons explained? I only know what, like, 2 icons do and thats because I accidentally reported something lol

"Dawn of a New day: 72 hours remaining."  Legend of Zelda: Majora's mask.

 

@Becky - thanks! It’s a relief to know that this isn’t the final version, I was worried. Suggestions:

 

A) like everyone else mentioned, multiple fonts, colors, and sizes would be really really appreciated. I’d like siggies, too, but I know that that’s something that’s already being pushed for.

 

B) I don’t know how possible this is, but I’d enjoy being able to scan our own pictures. It would probably wreak havoc with the filters, so :( , but I got really excited when it was originally mentioned that we would be able to share comics — which I assumed meant actual comics featuring original art, so I could finally show all the cool people here my WoF artwork, character designs, etc and recieve feedback.

 

C) you know how on the MBs you’re brought to a new page when you click on a post, and you can view it fully? I’d like to see that on NF, for the sake of organization and ease of perusing. Similar to the “we want post titles” thing.

 

D) kind of ties into B), but could there be a doodle format? There’s a comic option, and text option, and I would really like an option to use my fingers or a mouse to illustrate. It doesn’t have to be very advanced, just a straight line w/ various color options, but I kind of really would like it!

 

E) actually not a request, but let me say, I really appreciate all that you’re doing! It’s very kind of you guys to respect the preexistant community here and listen to our feedback and even potentially act on it. Thank you for easing this painful process!

Besides the filter, could there be some kind of search like on the Forums?  That would make things easier when we start RPing. 

 

Lables would be nice on the buttons, and if not that, then explaining them in a tutorial would be great.

 

You may already have this, but is there a way to see if friends are online in HB?  I can't tell, and with my slow(ish) internet it would be good to know if they are on and what world they are in, rather then world-hopping to check the chat.

 

The memes are awesome btw!
