Two New Features: Customize Your Profile and Rankings Snapshot

Last night we moved a couple of new features to the production site. One of the new features we already announced in a separate news article (~ the rankings), but two others have not been introduced yet. The first feature is to customize your own profile. You can add a short description, highlight your partners and achievements and give yourself a custom tag. The second feature is the rankings snapshot. You can use this to share any ranking at HWBOT easily on your prefered social networking platform (forum, social media).

In below two videos we go over the feature details. Test them out and let us know any feedback!

Did some test restyling http://hwbot.org/user/i.nfrar.ed/
So far no problems, except selectors by property don't work, e.g. header[role="banner"], or any other kind of declaration with double QUOTEs.
It needs to be with single QUOTEs, otherwise they get escaped.

If you give us a screenshot, then it could be done.

Which year is rev 2: http://web.archive.org/web/20080430102826/http://www.hwbot.org/ ?

Christian Ney says:

Nice profile page Ivan :)

GENiEBEN says:

Almost identical with what I had in mind, nice taste Infra :) Yes, that's rev2.

Belgium Massman says:

Hmm ... maybe we have to reconsider the CSS customization. It makes the site look very unprofessional and messy.

GENiEBEN says:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Australia JJJC says:

Translation: People have found the visibility;hidden setting in CSS and are hiding our advertisements :p

Belgium richba5tard says:

Haha, yes Ivans page is cool but it will get us into trouble with the peeps actually paying for this site. Chances are high we will have to limit the customization to a different background / color scheme than full css control. Sorry guys. :(

Canada Vinster says:

haha, that's awesome.

Maybe just stick to a text box with BB code and also set a limit with maximum amount of caracters/lines.

So it will only be possible to change the background to troll-face repeated across the page. Cool :p

If you're going to limit it, then just expose some color variables (less, sass), but that won't be cool anymore. Better remove that option at all if it's going to be limited. In the end it will eventually get to the point where pages look like the ones on myspace - black background, electric green text, comic sans font, etc.

That's fine as well, just don't gimp it too much. I think there should also be a 'Team CSS profile' saved somewhere, with the choice of selecting it if you're part of that team.

Just tried the snapshot feature and it kind of looks strange: http://snap.hwbot.org/2014/07/06/48587f2e736f27a811009b78a6b38995459d6ef9.png I also tried a different submission and it doesnt look stretched there. No idea why. http://snap.hwbot.org/2014/07/06/a2bc65b1dc243f40ca5b55cd9b849571cbc1a537.png
