I agree. NUMA's going through so many facelifts that sooner or later we'll just start calling it "Jocelyn Wildenstein" and treat it like a constant design contest.

It's the first design change in two years. Though personally, I preferred the original, when it was at notdot.net, to the current.

If anyone wants to take a shot at the underlying issues with NUMA instead of just fucking around with the aesthetics endlessly, I do have a copy of the source code from around early '09. I can't imagine that it's change a huge amount.

So far nothing anywhere near as good as the current design has been made. I vote we keep the same design and focus on changing numa's operating style - such as the 'authors with simiar taste' thing, stacked comments - that are editable, the ability to send private messages to people on numa, etc.

Techno first design is the best ! The palette is near to N colours but darker, it's excellent.
Maybe put golds at the place of the ninjas for the rating, it's more logic.
I also like Inspired first compotition.

I know this is not in the design of the site but I've ever dream of a Top Rated list of all time. By Top Rated i mean a combination of more rated and best rated with a kind of score for each maps. But how calcul this score ? Is a 10 ratings 5/5 better than a 20 ratings 4/5 ?
And a "time" search like:
- Only maps from this day.
- Only maps from the last week.
- Only maps from the last month.
- Only maps from the last year.
So if you want to play good new races you search "maps from the last month, race, best rated".

That used to exist, but has since been removed. I doubt it will return, given that people have actively decided that is was unneccesary. :/

That actually never existed. Top Rated was listed from the Top Rated map to the Lowest Rated map. You could sort by rates and date submitted and such but it was never separated by time frame, like how Lion described. I've been an advocate for staggered Top Rated systems much like how deviantART organizes their Top Rated uploads.

T3chno's first mock-up is the best. Is the redesign going to fix glitches? Such as thumbnails and incorrect map integers on the user profile?

I'm not quite sure why this is even happening. Numa's design is great it just needs the functionality fixed/built upon.

And while I appreciate r_t's initiative, this is much more a community decision and shouldn't be directed on the whim of the current admin.

Besides, I've not seen any design yet that does as well as the current. Most of those submitted are too stylised, they'll piss people off as much as they'll make people happy. The current design is slick and subdued, it's why it works so well.

PS - what NUMA needs desperately, imo:

Ability to edit/delete/preview news posts.
Ability to preview reviews.
Ability for moderators to delete/edit reviews if need be.

Moderation queue fixed.
Featured queue fixed (and fail-safe to ensure it doesn't break the same way again)
Search function fixed.
Thumbnails fixed.

Broken profiles and authors map list errors fixed.

Next x maps added to the top of the page.

Archive for news posts so we can browse backwards.

Properly integrate Sidke's favourite authors plug-in.

I'll add more if I think of them.

I agree with you on most of these except the featured maps queue. People were lazy when they had a queue and they are not as lazy without a queue. I would propose integrating a calendar that you can maybe select a date from and add a Review to be posted on that date. Otherwise we'll end up with Reviewers looking at the queue and going, "Oh, hey, there's a lot, I don't need to check this for 2 weeks" and then 2 weeks later we've had the same map up for days.

NUMA ROULETTE. You can't go to another map until you have rated and commented on the current one.

Here was my concept before I became bored and realized others could do it better.

This.

At least having it as a feature would be awesome.


I want this. 9/10 maps get pretty much ignored.
