Weekly Bonus Points: July 18th - July 25th

57 posts
Last week I gave you a sneak peak at the new header I'm working on, this week: the home page! Don't forget to zoom the image in all of the way: http://www.gamesbutler.com/images/homepage-redesign-7.png

The more of a response you give me the more points I'll give you. You'll get at least +5 points for saying something like 'looks good' and up to +15 points for going in depth of what you like, what you hate and things that you would like to be added etc.

now that rocks i like the new daily game thing and how its so big and the fact that the new games are vertical now the one thing i don't like is that the walkthroughs don't have a picture anymore and i'd like to see a forums tab
that is great!!! good work man the setup is perfect and easy for all users!! now because of the awesome setup I believe more people will join GamesButler because of its appearance, bravo!!! Now all You need is for users to get coins so they can maybe get better designs for their pages or something like a clip or moving character....have coins so when you get enough to buy what you want at the ''GB Store'' and buy what they want for their page.....this would be a great Idea and would get many more players on and would make this site better!!!!!!!!

i think its amazing, the best bit is the progress bar , could there be options for the colour
This looks perfect! Although it would be amazing, I would love to see a forums tab up top. The daily game thing is interesting too.
I also notice you added Facebook connectivity, which I like. A lot.
i like this one
i like it you can see how many more points you need to get to the next level prety much i mean the progrees bar
i like how the more new games show more in case u missed some of the games and i like how the daily game is really big and in the center and describeing it more than the other games i dont like how the leaderboard is at the bottom i think it shud be more to the top so the people who hav the most points get noticed i also dont like how the the popular games r so low either and i like how the game of the day has how many plays also i wud like to c more description of the game of the day like hav people rate it and have some comments of it to theside. i like how u change up everything and how its more organized space wise how everything has a bit more space and i love how u hav facebook connection i think u shud include a tab for the forums i like the walkthrus and how theres more listed and how it tells u how many more there r and i love how its so easy to use and how even new members can navigate there way around the page without asking u or anybody else i just love this new page so much its awesome

I really like how there are more games displayed on the main page, as well as the new placement of the leaderboard. OH! And the 'gamesbulter picks' thing, too... And the 'daily game' section at the top. Overall, the only complaint I have is the 'weekly bonus' button. It's kind of hard to find. Other than that, everything seems awesome. ^^
thats cool and it looks very aswome even the my games and all of the other things
i really like that maybe if you added some thing that told you how many of your friends are online
that is awesome i love it!!!

i like how it shows a game previews in the left side.

I think we should be able to move the areas around or make a spot bigger or smaller or even chnage the color on the top from blue to something different

I think overall it is pretty awesome

Things that could be added:
1.Score/trophy icon for games that have HiScores.
2.Games being played should fill the top left square, below the "Even More" link.
3.Top 10 games can be filled in the square, below above square(6 games/square).
4.Popular games can fill the 3 slots below the daily game.
5.Duplicate "MyGames" link on the left, below daily game can be removed! There's already on @ top-right!!
6. Remove "Even More" and "All" links and add to "More" drop-down menu. [Saves code, therefore quickens page load times]
7.WHERE'S THE FOOTER??

I like what you started with. Having a daily game is a good idea. One thing I would suggest is maybe have a user history showing what you have played recently or something along those lines.
You want an in depth explanation of what I think? Well here you go. The daily game part is nice, it being big makes it easier to know that it is the daily game of the day. I like how it shows more recent games then just the six it shows now, making it easier to see games that you like. I like the experience bar so you can see how far you are from the next level it is really nice. I like the walkthrough part at the bottom it is helpful. The leaderboard part is kinda hidden at the bottom but it will live. I like how you made it only 3 tabs but putting forums up there too would be nice. Also, something i would like you to add, not to the page but to the profile pages, it would show all of the highscores youu have in games on a spot on the profile page automatically updating itself. This could also make a secondary leaderboard of the number of highscores you have in games, thus making people more exited obout not only getting points, but also getting highscores, also getting the amount of plays on games up. I think that was a good idea. Back to the front page now, The colors are nice but there should be more smile faces around the page this would indeed make me happy for as you can see am writing a very long list of compliments and complaints just to get 15 bonus points. The page looks a little dark and could use smile faces and everyone knows smiles can indeed save the world, like a circle they never end. I like how it shows the level you are by the name of you in the upper right hand corner. I like how it shows your name. I like how it shows if you have any messages. I like it!!!!!
Signed Helloperson - have a smiley day!

also, where are the adds going to be?
^no ads on the home page
it's Ok to me
its realy different
It is very cool. I like the daily game with the huge picture, and how more games fit on the page. I also like it being hooked up to facebook. But, I do miss the games being played/games of the week tab. I love the progress bar telling when you get up a level. It looks a lot more organized, which is good...

You should make another butler logo to replace the guy in the scarf :D

The "Daily Game" it´s too big for the page, you should make a smaller picture, and instead of a Daily Game, could be a "Weekly Game" or "Game of the week".
The Leaderboard could be beside the Daily Game [or Weekly Game].
The Popular Games could be a column, and beside the New Games.
Why other "My Games" under Popular Games if I have the same button on the top of the page?

Besides that fact that the new one has "The Daily game" easily visible (with a huge picture), and the progress bar at the top of the page, I actually prefer the old home page more. I also think you should keep the "games being played now" because I find it interesting to see which games others like to play.

All the logical sections are great, but you need to separate the new games from the popular games a little more obviously.
It's a better location for the leaderboard, as while we would all love to lead it, it changes so infrequently that you tend to ignore it.
I assume the "even more" relates to the new games? if so, either put it at the bottom right of the new games panel, or immediately next to the new games title.
Add an "even more" link for the popular games too.
Keep up the good work :)

As is say last week I really like the progress bar. Now when i looked at the whole layout, I really have to say that I like the big picture of the daily game, too. What don´t like is the position of the Leaderboard, I would prefer it , like ut is now, at the top of the site...Maybe you could it small in the upper right, without the trophies and just with the Numbers(1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

its different from now, obviously. but it looks much better. my fav part about it is the progress bar and the daily game
holy crap dom that looks amazaing!! nice job! i like how the daily game is huge and how my name is mentioned 5 times in the coma description. idont really care about the facebook like thing but the Search for Games and more part in the bar where u search for stuff is really helpful for our "special members" lol jk

it would be nice if there was a tab to pick a random game. might make it so more games get played, and some games don't get hidden to much. new header looks great.
that looks cool. especially the thing that shows you how far you have to go until the next level.

I really like it is so much more organized and i really like the gamebutler picks section cause theres not really a recommended games section for this site. the daily game section is awsome its kinda like random game but one that is really liked and fun. I'll find it useful cause even on the best gaming sites you kinda dontknow what to play since theres hundreds of games. i like how you kept the new walkthrough section.theres only one thing i dont like and its the weekly bonus points button. when i first joined i was like a point finatic i thought that was what it was all about and it took awhile of looking around but i found the button and started doing it every week so i really like it i just wish it was a bit more out there or bigger. AWSOME job thought!

It seems pretty good so far, but could you some work. I don't really like the leaderboards so down and to the right like they were, they seem out of place, but maybe I'm just not use to them like that. The progress bars were an awesome addition. I like th daily game thing, with the picture under it, it gives it a bit of an artistic look. The top part of the page, where it's blue, seems kind of bare in the middle. I don't see a way to get to the forum though...

I'd rate it better than this current one you have, but it could use some adjustments.
