Gamer Launch V5 Feedback

How can we improve our V5 options?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Improve Customization Options

    We are planning a single overhaul to customization options including greater control of major blocks, fonts, page backgrounds, etc. To that end we have merged feedback related into this single item.

    • Ability to import WoW ingame calendar events into the sites calendar

      It would be awesome if we could import the events created in the in-game calendar of WoW to the calendar of the guildsite. I believe this can be done, as calendar things are visible on the armory also, and actually believe that some of your rivals are already doing this.

      Currently the calendar funtion on the site is pretty much useless, since it's tedious having to manually create the same events both in-game and then again for the sites calendar.

      I'm not asking for a two way sync, as that's probably not possible. Only the ability to import data one…

      • More information on Colour Wheels

        Currently you just click on the colour wheels in a "pot luck" sort of way to find what looks good, and you just eventually work out which segment of the wheel represents which part of the site .. it would be nice to either be able to hover over a particular segment to see a tooltip explain which part of the site it represents, or hover over a particular segment and it highlights that part of the site to show what will change, or simply have an "example" colour wheel explaining the same? Or this could perhaps be incorporated into…

          Custom color themes are planned and will likely include a bit more documentation.

        • I cannot find out how to make drop down menus

          You've put on the "feature requests" item relating to this on V4 that this is now active on V5. I know there are some drop down menus on the main home page, but cannot find how to add to or alter them .. is that possible?

            Right now you can’t roll your own menu, that will come later. Right now the dropdowns represent existing navigation structure and will be created for custom sections that have sub page.

            Roll your own menus are coming later.

            • Newsletter Improvements

              I don't know if this is V5 Feedback or if this is carryover from a previous feature, but one problem that I am having is with Newsletters going to my guild's spam folders. Moreover, I have been told by many people that because the email address is "noreply@guildlaunch.com", many of them simply deleted the messages for weeks until they realized it was from their guild.

              Second, you cannot post multimedia links in the newsletter.

              • Delete unwanted logos

                If we upload a logo that is messed up, or corrupted in some way, we need the ability to delete that logo so that others can be added.

                • Calendar doesn't shift events to correct days for differing time zones

                  Just noticed the Calendar is horribly bugged/broken.

                  Example:

                  I create a Raid to start on Friday 11:00pm GMT-5.

                  Someone in guild is at GMT-1. He see's that raid as on Friday at 3:00AM.

                  He should see the raid being on Saturday at 3:00AM instead.

                  • Spoiler button to show/hide large amounts of text

                    Normally when working with source code you can create a link class and create a button that hides a large amount of text (like a proper spoiler, not black it out) so it doesn't have to take up so much space when skimming through the post (and it makes you able to hide large pictures unless people actually wants to view them).

                      It would be nice if the primary navigation bar would remain stationary when scrolling down the page.

                      • Site Mode: Guest View

                        Site Modes are currently, "Live Site", "Edit Widgets", "Manage Styles". Since I can restrict some items/widgets to members/non-members, I have a need to see how my site looks to non-members.

                        This is currently only doable by logging out to view the page as a guest would, then logging back in if I want to make changes.

                        Solution:
                        + Site Mode; Guest View

                        While in Guest View the user will only see items/widgets that would be visible to non-members of their site.

                        • Guild Roster sortability by last logged in date

                          It would be good to be able to sort the member roster by last logged in date. Ideally this sort option would be default, in GET query so we can link to it directly.

                            Since V5 is mostly about making it more mobile device friendly.

                            How about making V4 defualt and have a 'View On Mobile' button/link to switch to V5 for those that are viewing on a mobile device to hit?

                                V4 Newsletters are clunky and time consuming to write up.
                                This could be at least eased, if we could store and retrieve previously sent Newsletters or Newsletter columns, edit them, then add them to the current Newsletter.

                                Additionally, Newsletters are currently going into the Promotions tab or Spam folder by default.

                                I don't write these clunky things up just for my health. Is there a plan to fix this? Maybe send the Newsletter from my own guild page's address, rather than having it flagged as a promotion from Guild launch / Gamer launch?

                                  Since the upgrade of the calendar, there is no way to make "All Day Event" and "Day Note" repeat. Many in game events are a week long, and it was nice to be able to enter a day note as repeating every day for a week without having to enter it seven times. Now this is only available for regular events.

                                    Can we customize what Widgets are displayed on the mobile site, and what are not? If we can't its not easy to find..

                                    Why when going to the mobile site, why do we get the "ad" for the mobile APP even if I we are a paying customer.. Maybe we don't want that to be showed?

                                    Some widgets like the server status Widget, when you are linked to 5 realms and have to have 5 different widgets the pages get really long, especially on the mobile site..

                                    Just some examples.

                                      This is definitely an interesting idea. We’ll evaluate the options here and see what we can do.

                                    • Guild Roster V4 display under V5

                                      Nice V5 style, seems easier to handle over to fellow guild officers but .... I wish I could revert to the Guilde Roster V4 display on demand under the V5 version with craft, etc showing up , etc. Or at least manage to display character information in this way : http://lerempart.wowlaunch.com/roster.php?roster_mode=characters&gid=468528 instead of http://lerempart.wowlaunch.com/roster/ingame.php?roster_mode=characters&guild_game_id=357916&gid=468528

                                      The V5 display is not really manageable. For WOW for instance, the V4 roster did offer a real added value as compared to the WoW armory. You could "find stuff" and get a fast overview.

                                      If at least I was able with my minimal knowledge to…

                                        Cyrcée, this is on the way. We will be adding a grid link to the bottom of the character roster the same way we added one to the member list. At the bottom right.

                                      • Add an "Officer's only" widget visibility option

                                        A fourth option in widget visibility options to include showing widget to only "officers" or "moderators", etc. would be a nice thing to have. Could be based on a member's ranking or a permission group.

                                        • The text areas need to allow for various font sizes and fonts. A story widget would be great like the one used on guildportal.com.

                                          Text areas to allow for various font sizes and fonts and more flexibility in editing html. A story widget that allows chapters linked by a index on the main page would be great like the one used on guildportal.com.
