Because of some Server / Hardware / Software Upgrades it is needed to setup a new website system, because the old one will be not supported anymore after this year (2019)

currently there are some additional server costs because we are running old php version, which is not supported anymore.

The old website functions are depricated and so i had to code a newer system.

I will use the JOOMLA CMS system and i have coded an own plugin for tournament management, which could be used by other communities in the same way we do, if they want to use it.

Because of a job switch i will have some holidays in the end of October and i will use the last 2 days of october to switch the system from cakephp to Joomla with integrating and merging the message Board / Forum.


For that i need some betatesters for the new website system. I think it is stable enough and could be tested now by players and admin ... but it is just a test platform ! matches and tournaments on that platform will be not transfered to new/old data. But i need some impressions and bug reports from power users and admins.


Furhter i want to catch up some ideas for new features.

a key feature will be the Achievement System like "winning an ASL 1 Season" or "having more than 100 / 500 / 1000" Offline matches.


If you have some nice ideas for further achievements, then please write it down here :)

here are my 2 cents:

### ### ###   ### ### ### ###   ###
general:

--- --- --- ---
desktop

(++)
- fast page loading
- blinking borders (on mouse hover) on menu items
- discord iframe scrollable
- font in menu items looks retro


(--)
- menu font/images (NEWS, MEMBERS etc.) too small - please make it bigger by:
   --> using the whole width
   --> or summarizing 2 or 3 not-so-inportant menus in 1 menu entry (as dropdown)
- background is too bright
   --> can you use the old background? (see attachement)
- no logout button (bad for testing :) )
- right side bar: could you fill it dynamically with the ranking tables (like on old website) if there is some free space? ranking tables are always an eye catcher and good entry point to check rankings

--- --- --- ---
mobile

(++)
- fast page loading
- discord iframe scrollable

(--)
- hamburger menu_
   --> is hard to use with sub menus
   --> could be marked more clearly as navigation central
   --> font/images too small
- login mask still visible after login (and needs half of the view!)



### ### ###   ### ### ### ###   ###
user profile

ideas (achievements):
- can you add statistic: having more than 100 / 500 / 1000 / 5000 / 10000 Online matches (1 to 5 stars)?
- (your idea modified:) same with offline experience: 50 / 100 / 250 / 500 / 1000 ?
- add medals to "Offline" and "Online"

(--)
- "Last Login" not working properly
- achievements:
   Offline Matches   2473 --> 4,5 Stars   
   Online Matches 3928   --> 4 Stars
   --> what is logic behind the stars here?

Good input, bomb! I agree.
We would need someone to work on style sheets and layout, so Micha can focus on coding.

For those about to SWOS - We salute you

Menu:
my main problem is that button generator does not work from my pc anymore http://fr.dxj.de:22520/data/button.php?s=45x15&z=1&f=0&t=help&b=1&c=824&.png
but menu buttons are not final now. but they are a bit too small

logic behing achievement stars are minimum and maximum values in the communtity ..... so you need more stars for online matches because most players have much more ...
but well the values for the stars can be discussed  .... it is the first implementation


new graphics and bug screenshots would help a lot
