New Updates & New Design

02/03/2020 21:20 Written by HarbourMaster

Dear Passengers & Crew,

I am delighted to announce the following new updates have been pushed live to the chat over the last week:

New Design
We absolutely recognised the need to modernise our community pages and make them mobile/small screen friendly. We did this last week with a BRAND NEW responsive design. We are thrilled to hear the overwhelming amount of positive feedback from you all! Thank you. 

Some Extra Tweaks
Today, 02/03, we release some extra changes to this new design in response to the feedback that you have provided across the rooms, to navigators, or on our social media pages. These changes are as follows:
- The 'Logbook' button at the top has been changed to 'My Page'
- The community page menu's have had the spacing reduced, so more fits on your screen.
- The height of headers in the menu's community pages has been reduced to be a bit more proportionate to the text size.
- The images on 'My Page' are now aligned properly with the title text.
- The padding on tables has been reduced to fit more content in the middle area of the community pages.
- Facebook login is now available from the top menu bar, and easier to see on smaller screens.
- Forgot Password link now appears properly.
- The rank name, as well as the logo, now appears on profiles on smaller screens.
- Some tweaks to improve useage on a mobile device.

If you don't yet see these design changes, it's due to either your own temporary internet files (which you could delete to try and speed up seeing them), or the chat's cache. You'll see them soon enough, things just take some time to catch up.

Addition of 'Other' Genders
- To be more inclusive, additional genders have been added. Any new gender will show the chatter as 'grey' in colour within the chat client.

- Every chatter can change their own gender (Profile > Edit Profile > Edit Information) ONCE only.
- Any additional edits beyond this can only be completed by Chief Navigators & above. 
- It's really important to note that the chat was built 20 years ago, and has only ever been designed for two genders (either one, or the other... boolean if you're a coder). It's been a HUGE amount of work to change this. We're almost there, but it's not perfect right now. We know this, and we're working to make improvements. We thought it was better to bring you the 80% version now, rather than waiting several more months for the perfect version. 

New Rooms
- A new 'LGBT Plus' room has been added and is open to all users aged 18 and over. In the last 48 hours, we've updated the graphics and colours, too. 
- A new 'No Holds Barred' room. Really, it's no holds barred. As long as it's not illegal... crack on. 

Other
- Updated Navigator Rank icons. 
- Updated Hall of Fame rank icon. 


We hope you love the new updates as much as we do. Thank you for continuing to chat with us, and as always, have fun! :)
