Moooore scroll issues

  1. The daily reward calendar scrolls with the page instead of staying fixed
  2. Any page with scroll
  3. Chrome 76 64 bit
  4. Scrolling to the top of the page so you can see it

  1. If you scroll down the news section far enough, your tab crashes reproducibly (for me, when I get to mid-2018).
  2. /ucf/news
  3. Firefox 68.0.2
  4. Install ad blocker. Block content from "media.alienwarearena.com/thumb_720x405/". Alternatively, install more RAM (untested). After blocking the thumbnails I can scroll back to May 29th, 2017 (without a crash), at which point the site will not load any older news entries, effectively rendering those inaccessible.

 

 


  1. Link Issue (Daily Quest Link)
  2. Profile Bar with Daily quest on all website :)
  3. Firefox & Chrome last version
  4. Error on Daily Quest Link

<a class="quest-title " href="javscript:void(0);">
               Badge Swap! (Check your My Account personalizations)
           </a>

It's javascript:void(0)

"a" missing on javascript

This is not just only the News section. This is because whole site engine is old Frankenstein monster which devours PC's brains (RAM) on a couple with modern browsers.

For example, you can open Videos section, in Firefox at Windows it will take 500-700 megabytes of RAM (according to Process Explorer's "System commit" which show real RAM usage). Then you will wait. Pass about a hour and those 0.5 GB of used RAM magically becomes 1-4 GB. And do not risk to open web developer's instruments (F12) and leave them for that hour. You can regret this.

There is need of a lot of work for site optimization. For both: front-end and back-end. But this 10yrs redesign touches only style - colors and background images. Not the way site actually works in your browser and definitely not the way servers works.

Don't get me wrong. I think colors are nice. This light one mobile theme is pretty good (aside from temporary bugs). And I'm believe there is dark theme and PC theme on the way. If not, well... I believe people will make it by themselfs. Dark themes are world's trend for last few years, and this trend is on top right now.

Administration, its totally not offense, its just my personal desire of things being better. Hire some actual developer which will bring life to the code and save your money for the site traffic and bring more people by making good UI/UX.

By the way, about wasted traffic. Did you saw that whole notifications info with their data sending over and over again every minute twice. I mean it. Not every 30 seconds. Just twice every 60 seconds. Doubled wasting.

And that redundant front-end engine that compiles JSON data to HTML code. You already have no respect for traffic volume and already compiling this JSON text from database at the server side. Why bother client's browsers to recompile this text from JSON to HTML? That's how works sections like Videos or News. But at the forum opposite picture. whole part which contains messages and page numbers comes as HTML.

And that thing when you need to scroll down to the actual end to make engine just start loading of new bunch of content. This is awful! AJAX should load it BEFORE user will see the end of a page.

By the way, I hate this thing at forum, when you read the page, clicks for the next one, got it, and you need to scroll up manually to read new page from start. Hate this. Even thought about fix it in my own userscript. But I have collected too many such things that need to be fixed at the AWA, so I start to believe that this should be done by full-time paid developer.

And again. I mean no offense to anyone working at the AWA. This is just my private humble opinion as developer.


It seems like persistent notifications are a problem on my end.

I was quoted and it seems like the green number 1 just sticks around despite me seeing the notification, clicking it and going to the post. I have no idea if other types of notifications are a problem though, I'm only seeing a quote notification at the moment.

Latest Firefox, though I don't imagine that matters.

 

 

Other thing I noticed about quote notification which is more of a design problem is that the username of the person who quoted you and the word 'quote' use the same color link and are back to back, so it looks like a single link when it's actually two separate links. Rewording the sentence ('your post was quoted by username' for example) or changing the colors would make it visually more clear that it's in fact two links. 


  1. ctrl + f finds evrything on the profile side bar even when it's hidden : edit: make that both sidebars
  2. All pages
  3. Google Chrome (64-bit) v76.0.3809.100
  4. Press F to pay respect

  1. When the two sidebars are open (profile and nav) closing one closes both
  2. All pages
  3. Google Chrome (64-bit) v76.0.3809.100
  4. Nope

  • Put logout in one of the side bars - just like sign in you should be able to logout from any page

  1. Long titles wreck the Forums
  2. All forum pages
  3. Google Chrome (64-bit) v76.0.3809.100
  4. Don't use long titles (limit titles char num? use ellipsis when it's too long?)

    And don't worry I changed the title after testing

1: Description will come as quotes

You shouldn't be able to open both sidebars.

Same bug.

 

2: The link is not applicable. A bug is everywhere on the site.

 

3: Browser is not applicable. Bug in CSS.

 

4: Workaround: nope. Real fix:

https://eu.alienwarearena.com/themes/alienware_v2/spoutlet/css/main.min.css

line number 704

.overlay {
   position: absolute;

}

should be

   position: fixed;
