That's why I'm happy with this reworked chat. Is there also a sort of PubSub plugin for the XMPP protocol?

Hey NADEO,

Thanks for the preview! Finally some screenshots! It's looking good to say the least!
The blue design (Club Manager, Title Manager , etc ) is looking good.

My suggestions:
- Less transparency in title pages. It will increase readablity.
- Proportions of text and areas could be improved (Too much different font sizes and wrong priorities. I expected other things to be displayed bigger and vice versa)
- Things not properly aligned (example: screenshot#1: video vs first news item. It would look way better if it was on the same height.)
- Days begin with capitals. ( Vectrum club page screenshot )
- You use videos but only support up to 720p? Any specific reason for that? 4K 60fps has actually become a real thing this year and we dont even get HD... Heck... I dont think anyone films in anything lower than HD anymore...

About the chat:
I saw that it's only a conceptual design, but I really hope it wont look like this. You can clearly see some old design elements used in MP2 and MP3 and it's becoming a cocktail of styles. I recommend putting more time and effort into the design.

- Again the proportions are strange. The word 'CHAT' at the top is huge while the green send button is so small. It just does not feel right.
- Sad to see that there is no scroll. (for now?)
- 2 different green circles. ( online status )
- Green circle pixelated. ( online status ) Maybe it's just the screenshot...
- Seems like nobody is using an avatar. I recommend hiding it or at least use a less outdated and smaller placeholder. These avatars are part of the chaos-making.
- The circular notifications are not bad, but I dont like them ( personal ). I would also love to see a small background color difference when I have unread messages of a friend.

It just looks so chaotic and not easy on the eyes. I simply dont know where to look first.



Keep up the good work, NADEO! And get that scrolling fixed! ;)

So Cerovan in my Caravan could look like this?

I really like the new things in maniaplanet! Good job, nadeo! Maybe mp could get a different ingame-design. I think I know, that we still have these dark-blue windows, cuz the website has same elements now...

Maybe it could get a bit more of white and black like in your chat concept. But it's only an idea ^^

that´s not a design, that´s just a template :D

And i hope this will get dark and not white or bright in any way. Same for the tabs, they need some work, they are to big (height) and this rounded border design feels like it´s from the last decade :o

Left side chat looks better but the white body should be a darker gray or a grayish body, would fit much better. Color theme of dominos evidence chat looks ok, could be a think tank for the new design.

Game itself is alright with that blueish colors and if the game fits to those auto generated websites (major design guideline for all maniaplanet services) all is fine, for sure a dank design of icons and buttons etc. is needed.

My wish is that the maniaplanet xmpp is available for xmpp clients like pidgin, that would make discord not needed anymore (ofc there are some things to do like a cloud for images etc.)
