I just uploaded a new version of profile pages. This is a work in progress and I would appreciate y'all hold off on comments till I get it finished. I released it early because there were some critical changes I needed to push out there were intertwined with this work.

Anyway - I'll post an all clear when things are more solidified.

Hmmm... The Blog section looks intriguing. Wonder what that will do when it is finished?

Why are the changes continuing to remove items from the first page of the profile?

What I would like is everything visible on one page, at least in an unexpanded form--allowing me to make a sweep of an array of information about a user without continuing to tab...

The current (and previous) setup means I don't see as much of the content about each user as I used to.

Do we need to make the profile pages into "swiss-army knives" or "multi-function remotes" which intend to make things better, but result in diminished ease of use, and other unintended losses?

Call me a pragmatist, but more features are complicating what I want:

Simplicity and Functionality.

The TWO things which I pray will remain on the front page are TRADE RATING and the links to Owned, For Trade, and Wanted games.

Just in case you're not aware of it when you click on the various profile tabs then the 'selected' tab stays as Basic while the contents change to the correct tab. I'm using firefox 2.0.0.3.

Trust me this is really rough, and it wouldn't even be out there yet if it wasn't intertwined with other fixes.

I appreciate that. Thanks for your incessant work on the site.

If necessity has forced these changes upon us, then I gratefully accept your handiwork.

Still, I mourn the loss of the ability to see all of my profile on one page. And, even with high-speed broadband, stretched to its' limit... I bog down when loading some tabs.

Is there any way we can do some sort of "beta-testing" of models before they are instituted?

IIRC Aldie said that he had to break the info into different tabs to cut down on server load issues. It had nothing to do with looks or functionality.

The update occurred between two page loads for me, which really threw me for a loop for a second or two!

First reactions: I preferred the previous "summary" approach with its two columns as it provided a better overview. I'm not quite sure what drove the change. I like the idea of the Blog page - could be interesting reading there when it gets going!

These are basically my sentiments as well... maybe Aldie should get a day job again so he doesn't get bored and make any more gratuitous changes to an already fine website laugh

In which case something I'd really like is a page that lists every forum/thread/geeklist (esp geeklists) that have received activity since I last viewed/subscribed to them. This would in essence be an equivalent of the subscription messages, but would be consolidated on a single page and wouldn't involve or require the geekmail system.

Yeah, geeklists too please.

Do you people even read what Aldie says?

This is not an end product.

Why can't you just wait to scream about it for once?
