Brad Wardell's site for talking about the customization of Windows.
Published on November 29, 2016 By Frogboy In Stardockians

Greetings!

This Fall Stardock began a major overhaul across the board of its community infrastructure.

The first update was of our WinCustomize.com customization site (www.wincustomize.com) to greatly speed it up.

The next update was to speed up our forums across all the Stardock community sites.

This past week, we launched the third major update: Forum community awards.  You will notice on people's posts that there are various little dots and awards by their names.  We will be adding more as time goes on.

Here's where you come in:

  1. What other awards do you want to see? (mouse over them to see what they are, the tooltip is a bit slow right now, fixing now)
  2. What other features would you like to see on the forums that would make you inclined to use our forums more?

We are gradually going around and promoting users so that they get more pips. It'll take a few months for that to get completed.

I like the changes. They  give each person a unique feel. It feels like you are rewarded (a bit) for being here and being part of the community.

I'm indifferent to the forum community rewards feature.

Very nice improvements. Thank you.

The speed is the thing....

I can't recall a time in our history when it was faster....

Awesome work Noticing the difference already!

Could we get a rare award such as "Liked by a Dev/Mod/CEO" or "MVP award" for any post or comment a dev/mod might find particularly insightful or that they think positively contributes to the forums and community ?

Also, just going by what some other sites have. A "X Years" in forums awards or "Forum Birthday" awards. Or something like that

Quoting 00zim00,

X Years



We have join date.

 

Yeah thats what they normally base it off, Get a badge for each year from join date. Sure people can just look at the join date at the left but this would be for Internetpoints! which is what awards are

I would like to see fixed the problem with adding pictures to a post. When I type my text, then add the pic, it shows up above the text. I have to arrow up, move the pic down via enter key, then move the text to the top. Been like that for months and months, maybe even a year or so.  Irritating.

One problem I see with that idea is that some join dates aren't accurate. Mine, for example. Since I changed my nick.

Maybe that can be fixed then with the site update ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ?

Wow. The speed is insane. This was always the slowest loading forum for me until now. Thank you!!

I love the speed and the rewards.

What about creating Modding icon for Registered Modders?

on Nov 30, 2016

Speed is better than I can ever remember - and that's going back a few years

Badges? We don't need no steenkin' badges...

I do seem to have a few accumulated though - mousing over to see what they are

Is it possible to use larger fonts for mobile phone displays?

on Dec 01, 2016
