Thread: Beta Features Update: Game Ordering - Grouping & Drag + Drop

Started by: MetaMeta

(edited: )

Hey all! Thanks once again for your feedback on our current round of beta features, we’re excited to be pushing these into public access soon! Let’s take a peek at some of the latest improvements around Game Ordering.

Game Groups

As a Supporter, you can now group games together! (Note, this is the only part of this update exclusive to Supporter - the rest of Game Ordering will be free for all once out of beta!)

Once games have been grouped, you can rename them, assign them a color and best of all…

Drag & Drop

You can now Drag & Drop games within Game Ordering! This makes it much easier to organize your profile! If you have games grouped together, you can even adjust the position of entire run groups!

Also please keep in mind, similar to the last update - this Drag & Drop feature is actually going to be rolled out where appropriate across the site once it's ready. This means that potentially any place with a “list” (levels, categories, variables, etc) which is currently using up and down arrows for navigation, will have drag and drop ordering implemented as well - exponentially increasing the ease of modifying these lists.

Coming up next

In the last couple weeks, we have reflected on about two years worth of feedback surrounding the current Speedrun.com leaderboard experience and sent out a survey created by our UX Designer (big thank you to those who filled that out!) and we are now full steam ahead on the leaderboard rework! For those of you who have taken part in our UX interviews, thank you so much once again! They were a massive help.

Although nothing is concrete yet, you can also expect some fresh new beta features to play with shortly if that’s something you’re interested in!

Yeah unfortunately i dont think the downpatch works for Epic at all, since it was taken from Steam

Thread: Quick Beta Features Update :)

Started by: MetaMeta

Hey everyone! Quick update about Supporter and the current Featured Run beta feature 🙂

First of all, I’d just like to thank you all for the incredible feedback we received recently about Supporter, leaderboards, and of course the new beta features! Let’s get into the update notes, and then we can talk about them. 🙂

Improvements & Fixes

• You can now feature one Full Game run, and one Individual Level run on each of their respective pages.
• It is now easier to remove the currently selected Featured Run
• You can now search for games within the Featured Run section, making it much easier to find the run you’re looking for
• It is now possible to feature obsolete runs
• Corrected copy in cases where there was only one run associated with a game
• Exposed Supporter icon/animation to the API
• Fixed a bug where variables would not show in the Featured Run preview
• The save button is now much more accessible, so you no longer need to scroll to the bottom of the page to save your changes

There’s a point here I’d like to expand upon - the new save button. This is currently only contained to these beta features, but we have plans to implement these quality of life changes where applicable across the entire site once we’re confident with the level of polish. This means that all forms where saving is required will have this new “floating” save button, making the forms easier to modify.

Coming up next

While we start moving the development team more and more into our leaderboard rewrite, we are also going to be implementing much of your feedback about the Game Ordering beta feature in the coming weeks 🙂

Thanks everyone for the feedback, it's been a lot - and that's a great thing 😃

We had like a two hour call today discussing all the feedback and still didn't get through all of it haha, so we'll likely continue that tomorrow

Anywho, just wanted to post that I put a survey created by our designer here which it would be super helpful if you could fill out 🙂

Thank you everyone for your feedback on Supporter and the Beta Features so far! We're going to be implementing much of this feedback shortly 🙂

Coming up after Supporter stuff, the team will be focusing on an update to the leaderboards including a complete rewrite of both the backend and frontend which should allow a lot more flexibility and be much more performant. As you may have noticed from the recent leak, the team has been working on leaderboards for months - but now it's time to dig in deep!

We've been collecting feedback about leaderboard UX/UI, as well as ideas for other improvements to the form and function of leaderboards from both the runner and moderator perspective - but we want to make sure all the bases are covered here.

So, please if you have some ideas for how leaderboards can be improved - leave them below!

P.S. What information is on the current leaderboards that you feel is underrepresented or overrepresented?

That CPU usage is definitely unexpected. What browser are you using @shenefshenef?

Thread: Difference in profile layout when using Game Ordering

A very good point - I see what you mean about the advantage of the table now. The table shows a lot more information when there's a lot of categories under one level, whereas the new layout seems to show more runs when its just one category per level

@boldbold stop spamming memes and random numbers, or you'll get a suspension.

As I said before, feel free to express your opinion - I'm not going to censor you for that. With that said, you're being a disturbance and annoying people in the forums

Thread: Difference in profile layout when using Game Ordering

Started by: AdamoAdamo

There are some good thoughts here for sure, I'm writing everything down bullet point style for the devs to look at Monday 😃

One question though (cause I can't really test it with admin perms) What does one IL section look like when comparing the old/new layouts? Cause I just realized, comparing the two IL screenshots @AdamoAdamo posted - it seems like the new one actually shows more runs? (9 levels vs 4)

Could just be that it's a different profile though?

All good ideas 😃

Also just had one and want to hear thoughts on it -

What if you could press a button to group together games under a series? I'm not sure how exactly it'd work as far as where it puts the "groups", but personally I'd find something like this handy. Anyone else have thoughts on that?

Is the main issue with the IL's that it shows less? The layout here is definitely in its very early stages, so feedback is more than welcomed
