Fizzer: Profile Beautification?: 1/12/2012 08:47:01

Level 55
My profile is ugly. I've tried to simplify it. But no matter what I do it is still ugly. Any chance the profile could be changed slightly?


- Minimize (-) & Maximize (+) settings/options for: Favorite Games, Ladder Stats, Ranked Games, Previously known as, Play Speed, and everything below Player Name (at top) and Favorite Games (ie, from Email to This player has been boot: minimize it as part of Player Name)

My minimized/simplified profile, as a crude illustration:


Gui M (+)
Favorite Games (+)
Ladder Statistics (+)
Ranked Games
Completed 2446 ranked games (1863 / 2446) (+)
Previously known as... (+)


ÚČ╝ (image)
Player Speed (+)

Others could click (+) to see the details, if they actually care about them. And if it is not that hard to do: maybe each player could choose what to minimize and what to maximize.

I'm not sure making everything collapsible will be very well received. At least for me, when I look at someone's profile, I want to scan over it, not have to click five times just to see the content.

I'm sure there are ways to make it look better without collapsing sections. I know the ladder stats look really bad, since there's too much text and not enough structure. If you (or anyone) wants to make a mock-up of an improved screen (either save and modify the html, or just take screenshots and edit in Photoshop), send it to me at fizzer@warlight.net and I can do the rest.

True. Simplicity of appearance and functionality are important. I'm not sure what the best balance would be.

For ladder stats, maybe change it from:

Ladder Statistics
1 v 1 ladder: Not Ranked with a rating of 2014. Best rating ever: 2058, best rank ever: 3rd

2 v 2 ladder with unknownsoldier: Not Ranked with a rating of 1878.

2 v 2 ladder with denzyman_UA: Not Ranked with a rating of 1793. Best rating ever: 1921, best rank ever: 1st


1v1: 20 / 100 (20%) Rank (Best): Inactive (3). Rating (Best): 2014 (2058).
2v2 w/unknownsoldier: 5 / 10 (50%). Rank (Best): NA (NA). Rating (Best): 1878 (NA).
2v2 w/denzyman: Record: 100 / 100 (100%) Rank (Best): Inactive (1). Rating (Best): 1793 (1921).

- making the Ladders section in a boxed (rows and columns) format might help, like what you did with the Notable Victories section on ladder pages.
- I think adding one's ladder record to the profile is useful (I also think adding [1] overall record and [2] unexpired record to each player's ladder page would be interesting and useful).
- For teammates' names: maybe limit it to 5-10 characters? (eg, Aquaholic's new name would be ugly on NoobSchool's profile page).
- With respect to ladder record, adding it to the Dashboard might be cool too:

1 v 1 Ladder: Rankings


(My apologies for simple text: I'm not very good with computers, never use photoshop and never took a screen shot before.)

Possible solution for appearance and functionality balance: make use of the right half of the profile page?

Currently, 20% of the page (left) shows an image and has "Play Speed," 20% of the page (center) shows a bunch of information, and 60% of the page is blank. Using that empty 60% (so all the information is available without scrolling down) might be useful.

Maybe shift 'Ladder Statistics' and 'Ranked Games' to the right, with 'Ranked Games' above 'Ladder Statistics'?

so here is what i think profile should look like , but i would prefer that fizzer only apply this design to member's profiles [this will add one more feature for buying membership] , in this pic i also changed the member symbol, i hope you will like it :)

Both the link and the image don't work for me.

Personally, I couldn't give a rat's ass about the profile aesthetics.

I'd rather Fizzer's limited time and focus was spent on developing implementing game-play features since those are far more meaningful.

I agree that I'd rather have Fiz working on more important things, but if the WL community is willing and able to help make things better, then awesome.
