What is most important to you on a character profile ?

What would you like to see, what would you like to be able to do ?


I'm looking to create a cleaner, simpler, more compact profile that can stand up to Wikia and Wikipedia

I would like to be able to add the birthdays because most of the characters out there on this website have birthdays. But they aren't shown on their profile or on the birthday calendar.

Thank you for the suggestion! I'll be sure to simplify that with the new version.


It is currently possible to add a birthday if you follow the correct template and add the birthday using the extra details.

From the edit character page

More and more I'm seeing the "tabs" to be a great hindrance - will be doing away with them in favor of a "Scroll down" approach ( and more edit links ).

Could you enable multi select files on image upload?
It really annoying to add one file at a time when you have to upload multiple image :P

However when I try to add information to the extra details, it says Add to moderation queue. I think it would be better if other people are able to add extra details freely.

I vote no for this
It'll be a real mess if user can freely add extra details without being reviewed

Chart to the left, or chart to the right ... ?

Regarding multiple image uploads, I don't know. To keep hosting costs down, it's really important we do not have a lot of images. I'm not looking to build an image board, plenty of other sites already do an awesome job at that ( with hosting costs 10x ours on average ). xD

One or two images per character is all we need. Like the promotional images found on Getchu.

Making contributions and moderation are things I want to do better at. I'll see if I can roll out a system similar to how we handle images ...

ie) Changes you make are immediately visible to you, but require moderation before they are visible to everyone else.

How would the change affect treasure chests? Currently any available chest you need to scroll down a bit (and sometimes a lot if the banner ad pushes it down farther). I'm not sure if that's intentional or not but it would be nice if treasure chests were slightly easier to click on. I also still haven't figured out if clicking the treasure chest/ rare drop card image itself or the open treasure chest button has a difference for how much (or what) you get from it. Of your 2 designs you showed the information on the left feels more natural to me anyways. I'm just not really sure where the treasure chest would end up once the redesign is done. There is a part of me as well that likes the current design like it is now as it feels unique. But I do think ultimately if the change brings more people to the site then that would be best. I'm just slightly concerned if the change makes it so that it's harder to open the treasure chests.

Here's an example with a treasure chest

Seems like aligning to the left is going to win out. Especially on mobile devices.

I'm sorta splitting this two ways. The top half will be clean presentation with all the info, and the 2nd half will have all the features for members.

Even though we may not know it for all characters, I'd like to be able to see their likes and dislikes, and maybe allowing people to put in a few words to describe their personality?
