New site! New bugs?

delusional - 3rd October 2020

Howdy all, if you've read the recent news (or spotted the visual changes!) you'll have noticed we have a new site!

If you spot anything amiss, or come across any weird bugs, please let me know here. Also if you have any general feedback please feel free to share!

Will you be putting the costumes back into completed/in progress etc? My costume page now is just one looooong list of everything everywhere and I mainly used this to keep track of stuff I’ve done in the past/working on now 😭

Yes! Though not in the same way :)

You'll have noticed we've still got the statuses for in progress / complete etc and we'll be adding a few more highly demanded (*cough*Retired*cough*) options, so that your costume list (and other search pages) can be filtered by these. No ETA to give you I'm afraid, but I promise you it'll be coming :)

Thank you! Just playing with the cosplay icon now; will there ever be the option to have it displayed as it was before too? (I use my mobile a lot and even with the filtered sections it’s just a long list - I loved how the costumes was laid out before with the little thumbnails) if not no worries! :)

We can definitely look into a compact view style of it for smaller screens, but the old way wont be returning I'm afraid. (Square icons just don't scale nicely between device types!)

The costume reorder part of my cosplay pages isn't working.

Hey AlexleStar, can you email support@cosplayisland with where it's breaking, or what device or browser you are using? We can't replicate the issue and it's working for us, so just need to see what's going wrong for you :)

Hi sorry if I have just completely missed it but I can't seem to find the list of people I am following/watching. I can see those who have recently been active in my activity feed but not a complete list. I have looked on my profile and the cosplayers section but no option to bring it up?

Hey Leonie, this was actually removed a long time ago! We're doing an overhaul of your activity feed section, and it'll be included (in a new way) with that :)

The navigation seems to be throwing me off as to where everything is now. I keep getting lost. I think some tweaks might be needed as it's not a very intuitive layout (speaking as an autistic cosplayer).

We've definitely moved a lot around! Is there anything specific that you find either difficult to navigate, or clunky (i.e. missing shortcuts etc). Feel free to pop an email through to support@cosplayisland.co.uk if you'd rather discuss there as well. It's been quite quiet here over the last 2 years (not much cosplay been going on for obvious reasons!) so we're still looking for feedback :D

I think it's mainly that I find having to use two different menus confusing, and the a few of the icons are confusing (eg: the group one implies the chatter, and the dashboard doesn't seem to serve much of a purpose for a dashboard), and the focus on recent uploads seems a bit "in the face." I'd put recent uploads on the side and have the central area for news/new events/showcase (which hasn't been updated in quite some time). There's a lot hidden in the menu at the top left that would be better implemented into the horizontal menu as the "hamburger" line icon is usually a menu icon for mobiles. By all means it should be there, but on the desktop it's a bit of a pain having to navigate the two menus, trying to remember which one takes me to which screen. I just find it a bit of a confusing mess as an autistic individual.

Indeed, things have been dead for a good while due to the pandemic. I think the vibe is still there, but I wonder what means could be implemented to drive up a bit of activity. I'll have a think, but I would say the chatter/forum would be best having its own page with the recent costume comments/updates on the side widget area.
