Definately what Joel said. You can hardly see the letters. But everything else looks amazing. I like how the ratings pop out. Also, what is the Top Friend thing going to be when you wave over the friend tab at the top?

I think forums are under community. Looks good, Dom.

challenges = awards
forums = community

I'll fix that text soon, probably just have to make it bold

Probably won't be named top friends but you'll be able to 'pin' friends up there to quickly get to their profile
where is the chat?

It seems alright, but the images are too big.
I guess I'm just used to the actual page... I think it is great and perfect. Changing the names of some links (challenges = awards, for example) would make it easier to new and old users and the profile part is just great, with our avatars and the progress bar.

I know the site has changed a lot and it gets better each update, so maybe changes are good, anyway! Time to leave some past behind...

It looks awesome. It might just be me but, when I click on Community, it just refreshes the page.

what's Debug time means?
the site is in debug mode (developer mode) and the time is how fast the page loads on the server

It's pretty good. The profile tab at the top looks a lot better. Perhaps at the bottom where you can click to change the page number of the lists you could add a box where you can type in a particular page number. That way if there are many pages and you know the game you are looking for but couldn't remember the name of is on a certain page, you don't have to keep clicking next.

Will there be sections on the right side of the screen (i.e. leaderboards, recently played, etc.) like there are currently, because that side of the screen looks lonely in preview.

might add something like that you can always change it in the url bar too http://www.gamesbutler.com/beta/beta/beta/games/7/Shooting&p=12

When does this become permanent?
When is this up and going?
Looks Great Dom cant wait for it to be out
Originally posted by |Random$| TilleWhen is this up and going?

Not sure! I obviously want to get it out as soon as possible, but I've been busy with keeping the site up and running, so many new people as of lately ^_^ which means I need to focus on server stuff so the site doesn't crash

but hopefully the beta will be done by late July, it won't go live right away as I want to test a lot of things

Will there ever be an upgraded post editing mode, because the current version lacks some of the options that creating a post has (i.e. image, bold, and link buttons and preview mode)
