Site Redesign

Wednesday, June 10, 2009 11:49 AM

Lots of new stuff in the last month.  Probably the most obvious one is the visual redesign.  I didn't want to launch the site looking like a carbon copy of Zoji, so I've been tinkering with the appearance for...longer than I care to admit (these creative-type things take a lot of iteration before I end up with something I'm happy with).

 

I was aiming for something a little more modern-looking, in a centered, single-page format (unlike Zoji's 2-part, left-aligned style).  I picked red as the primary color element because of the logo, but I thought the light blue from Zoji's blue color scheme complimented it nicely so I kept it.  Anyway, let me know what you think!

 

Also new: the domain!  The site was far enough along that I thought it was time to move it from its test domain to its public domain: bluffave.com.

 

Let's see, what else is new...

 

  • An observer mode so people not logged into the site can watch a game in progress
  • Crash recovery:
    • If the server goes down while you're in a cash game, all the money you have on the table is credited to your bankroll
    • If the server goes down while you're in a tournament, the remaining tournament prize pool is distributed amongst all the remaining players
  • Viewing the full leaderboard for a group
  • Group player winnings can now be edited
  • A setting to allow non group members to post to a group's forum.  This allows the Support group to be used as a forum for user questions, help requests, suggestions, feedback, etc.
