Feature-Request for HP: The Info-Line "you have N new Messages" could get yellow if there is any Message and perhaps it sounds curiously if I note that there is a Typo and that "you" in that Line should get capitalized as capitalized first Word of a Sentence. face-smile.png


Ivan the Terrible is dead .. Genghis Khan is dead .. and I do not feel well, too.

I see the point of the coloring to highlight messages, but concering the "you":

Welcome Nasenbaer, you have 0 new messages.

looks totally correct to me - like in a letter, there is no new sentence after the comma.

Right, another Context than I thought. Ignored Line Above as Part of Sentence. So it's not a Type but an (for me) unexpected Form of UI. face-smile.png

Add few nice informative ScreenShots to Desciption from actual WL-Version to add visual Idea about the Game before the Player can read (relative to Pictures) "boring Text". He find first ScreenShots first after DownLoad-Section - the Moment where he ask hilmself if he want that Game. Text is always relative dry and therefore repulsive for potential new Player.

I strongly advice to consider to read Article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AIDA_%28marketing%29 before considering a new Design of the "About Game-Section".

Perhaps that Section is already fine excepted for potential new Players and we need another Section for "Welcome to the Game"-Section -- no Idea how to call that Section better that potential new Players go there first. I think the present Section should get renamed into WL-Stuff/Game-Stuff and the Newbie-Section perhaps into something like "About/Introduction/Welcome WideLands" ... May be "WTF WL?" address better the Altitude of intended Audience? (potential new Players) face-smile.png (well, Matter of Taste and Style -- and surely brief and clearly understandable for smart and other! :)))

Porting the Site may still take a Lot of Time and Effort aside of Fixing of reported Bugs. No Idea when there will be Time to add Features. For Game-Dev there exist an InfraStructure to display intended Action resp intended/priorized Development-Goals eg in Form of Branches. How about a (sticky?) Thread to display intended Features to add to the HP not for Discussion but 'FYI' Users regualary are not write (noise) in - I don't want to write or discuss Items listed there but know what Features are intended to get anytime implemented. Another Thread may Discuss Users Interests in specific Features. Eg. colorizing Items like Login this or that Way is fine but File-Attachment to PM offers to me a higher Value no Matter if the ImplementationWork may be very different. Btw Feature - I remind some Stat-Stuff about new HP-Operation (no Idea what it was in Detail but I like to be able to see how the new HP may attract new Players/Users by its more professional and pleasant Appearance. I think about Stat for Visitors, Visits and Registrations.

We got noticed in IRC that the links to the economy network graphs are not working, for example here: https://wl.widelands.org/wiki/BarbariansPage/

I guess this is related to the server move?

Fixed now. The new homepage renamed online_help to wlhelp and we did not fix those links.
