Woo hoo, update on recent changes, issues and our feedback – thanks Chamb & team. :-)
Here’s some more feedback.
-- Missing gift codes / problems with gift codes after launch.
Sadly, this is still not solved, as none of my redeemed
gift codes are listed in my account. I’d like them back, please.
Also, I (and I believe others too) would appreciate if some sorting options were added, like unredeemed on top and redeemed at the bottom, hide/ unhide redeemed ones, etc.
-- Marking titles as owned.
[…] Right now, in our opinion, we have what is the best possible solution, as by greying out products that you own we're taking them out of the spotlight rather than making them more prominent.
Ah, yes, the site was in desperate need of more grey, thanks. :-P
If I may, the problem with using only one colour to define multiple things is that there comes a point that one runs out of options on how to do things with different shades. This appears to be one of those cases. Please take a look at the first three screenshots I’ve attached, It goes without saying that I prefer my way from GOG’s way, and perhaps I'm not alone in this. ;-)
-- Marking titles as wishlisted.
The lovely heart is back and it's more visible than it was before.
With respect, seriously? More visible than before? Take a look at the fourth screenshot – it looks like it’s part of the game’s title, how does this qualify as more visible?
And the heart is mourning now that you’ve drained all colour out of it.
Not to mention that it’s not clickable, i.e. one can’t toggle it on or off.
-- Wishlist option improvements.
Great news! :-)
-- Our biggest next step is the brand new My Account section.
The plan is not only to fix all the issues that the current My Account has, but also introduce some of the requested features - like additional options to filter titles, full orders history, improvements to messages, and much more. As this is a pretty big task, we are not ready to announce any dates yet.
Not sure if I should be excited or scared, but here’s a big request – please, don’t
replace my eyesight friendly black shelf with one of yet another shade of washed out grey! Please, don’t!!
And while you’re at fixing account issues, allow me to remind you of the following:
- I'm hiding a game that I don't even own, due to a bug that put it into my library after purchasing the DLC for that game while forgetting to tick the gifting box.
- It’s basically impossible to move titles around in manual since the site revamp. This here
is actually a neat idea I’d make use of.
- New games are placed at random spots in random rows.
- The “NEW & UPDATED” tab in list view is broken.
- Games that are part of a series that have only one single game page don’t link to it.
- Right-clicking on a game title to open its page, causes the product details to close (shelf).
- The counter of games is only visible when one has at least one update.
-- Galaxy Client
(obviously) as well as many other smaller and bigger things that we believe you will love as much as we do.
In danger of sounding like a broken record, please incorporate the functionality and features of the current GOG Downloader, and make the Galaxy modular so that one can use only this portion of it.
-- We are also slowly starting work on a new support section.
Colour me curious. :-)
-- Bringing back your avatar to the top menu.
More great news! :-D
-- Constant improvements and fine tuning based on your feedback.
So keep posting about the things that bother you, and we will be looking at how to improve them / solve the issues.
I will once again suggest that you take a good look at least at the Barefoot Essentials
script by y and the [url=http://www.an-ovel.com/pages/magog.php]MaGog
search engine by mrkgnao
. You’ll find a great deal of features and usability that your users appreciate and want.
Also take a look at the scripts and styles by community members (such as ChrisSD and Eli) mentioned in the GOGWiki page “GOG Known Issues
The minimum would be:
- Fix the issue with inconsistent/ mixed secure and insecure connections (https/ http), as shmerl
also pointed out.
- Offer an option to make that top bar stick and not stalk us around.
- Move the currency switch to the top of the pages, it being in the footer was a terrible idea.
- Improve the search filters – the price filter is in desperate need of more options, as discussed multiple times, most recently here
; the company filter is a mess, 59 pages of randomly listed companies, please list companies alphabetical and offer a dynamic way to chose a company/
- Rework the functionality of the page discussed here
- Reintroduce the dates of reviews as well as sorting them.
And since we're on the subject, what about the things I've mentioned here
I don’t dare hope that the grey invasion will be lifted, put please think about it. The Announcements’ pages in particular are now extremely dull and depressing with all that grey and black font.
And I don’t dare ask if any improvements will be done to the forums, like a truly usable search function. At the very least, please fix the bug that takes one to the bottom of the page whenever they post – I’m already pretty sick of having that grey void followed by the tall footer shoved into my face every time I post.
Hey this should probably be stickied, so everyone notices it. Just another thought :P
It's rather pointless, as the stickies are only listed on the first page like ordinary threads for some time now.
EDIT: typo, formatting and an addition.
EDIT2: New addition with link to issues when not logged in and not allowing cookies.
EDIT3: One more addition to existing the account issues.
EDIT: More additions. :-)
