Gamersyde

After months of (not) work, the whole Gamersyde team is finally giving everyone early access to the new version of the site, for the low low price of nothing. 100% designed by Fafat (thanks thanks thanks so much), compatible with desktop, tablets and smartphones, with both light and dark themes, this third version is exactly what we hoped it would be when we launched the project so many years ago. If you want to test it, please go to this link and use publicbeta with finally as the password. You can then use your own account to log in on the site of course! If you find an issue, please let us know on the bugs/suggestion forum. Our goal is to go in production before the end of the month.

Un grand merci aussi à Captaintarass pour sa modernisation du forum.

Bitrate is the same. Can you link me to a non working video? Do you get an error?

Somehow it looks less compressed to me even though it's the same player as on the old site, weird.
Any video at the latest Days gone post, all blank and can't select the stream quality below. It worked fine when I first checked, tried to clear cache but nothing. It's in Chrome, working in Edge though. Probably something is wrong at my end.
Other videos in older posts are working fine, interesting :D

People have been reporting it for a a while on the French side. It seems to be random, though I'm not sure.

Hi,

Great work on the site, it looks very good and fresh. Just a few questions:

- Will we be able to select where we want those very big thumbnails at the top or not? Or at least move them to the bottom?

- Do you plan on adding a search function for the Forums?

- A cool feature that I don't see in allmost any site would be to have the latest 5-10 comments - combined from all news - visible on the front page, this way you wouldn't need to go into a news article to see the most recent ones. Optional, of course.

- Will the site have a native Dark Theme option? I use the "Dark Background and Light Text" extension with Firefox and when it's enabled, the white background becomes dark with white text and it works perfectly with the site. Just mentioning in case that info is of any help to you.

- Do you plan on doing anything with the shoutbox? I tried logging in with the above username and password, as well as mine and it didn't work, so I can't see if there's a shoutbox or not.

- Will you allow the old design for people who prefer it? I plan on using the new design, but options are always great if it's not costly or troublesome.

- What will happen with the Community section? Will those videos be deleted or archived to be accessed in some other way?

I understand some of these changes would require a lot of work, just asking because some things will require some adjustment. I'm fine since I can adjust the site with Firefox's Web Developer tools and some extensions, but maybe they're something to think about in the future.

PS. I found a bug with the current site, where if you go to the Off-Topic section on the Forums, if you aren't logged in, it shows everything normally, however if you're logged in, it only shows the first thread. I tested with the other sections both in English and in French and they all work fine, it only happens in the Off-Topic section and the bug happens in both language versions.

No plan for that.
- Do you plan on adding a search function for the Forums?
Yeah I'll put it back at some point.
- A cool feature that I don't see in allmost any site would be to have the latest 5-10 comments - combined from all news - visible on the front page, this way you wouldn't need to go into a news article to see the most recent ones. Optional, of course.
Actually we had it before in the v2, but removed it due to performance issues.
- Will the site have a native Dark Theme option? I use the "Dark Background and Light Text" extension with Firefox and when it's enabled, the white background becomes dark with white text and it works perfectly with the site. Just mentioning in case that info is of any help to you.
It's already there. Look at the gear icon at the top right of the site :)
- Do you plan on doing anything with the shoutbox? I tried logging in with the above username and password, as well as mine and it didn't work, so I can't see if there's a shoutbox or not.
Shoutbox is there, you should be able to connect with your own account.
- Will you allow the old design for people who prefer it? I plan on using the new design, but options are always great if it's not costly or troublesome.
V2 won't stay, the v3 code base is quite different and having both would mean twice the work.
- What will happen with the Community section? Will those videos be deleted or archived to be accessed in some other way?
It will be gone when v2 disappears for good. We can't afford keeping the servers up just for archives.

Thanks for the reply.

Sorry I missed some things. Found the Dark Theme and was able to log in. Site looks great, new yet familiar.

However, the images display screen is freaking AMAZING!!!!!

Thank you so much for that, all the options from staying in the same window, transparency, using keyboard's arrow keys, the mouse dragging function, clicking the arrows on the sides, the slide show, the zoom and the thumbnails really help making seeing images much more smoother, fast and easier.

Thanks a lot for all the hardwork. :D

My only note is the big boxes at the top, would be nice to collapse that section or make it less prominent but as i say, just a note.

Overall, fantastic upgrade. Congrats and thanks.

Really slick overall. Great work all!

I think my only minor nit is the introduction of pure white panels vs the light grays of the old palette (more contrast isn't always necessary). The favicon looks a bit rough as well but I'm assuming that's the look you're going for.
