Comments on the following newsitem

The new BOINCstats website is here!

As you can see the BOINCstats website has been thoroughly renewed. It's an all new design which plays nicely with mobile phones and tablets. Security is improved, pages and forms are optimized. It's a big change but most pages can be found in the same place as before.

Support for customized languages has been dropped, most were not properly maintained. For those who really need a translated version the build in translation of the browser may do the trick. I found it to be pretty decent for Dutch.

I hope you like it but if you really can't get used to the new design, the old version of BOINCstats can be found at https://classic.boincstats.com, but be aware, that version will no longer be maintained and will receive no updates other than security patches!

Where can I change back to the old design???

Low contrast, no marking for the user`s line, ads in the middle of the lists - I don't see any benefit in the changes.

Side panel opens every time when you move to another page, probably it should remember the last state

So I see some positive and some negative responses to the new layout.

As for the negative ones: Back in march I posted in the forum I was working on a new version of BOINCstats. I posted two more times to report progress. Nobody responded there. That was your chance to influence how the new site would look and work. Last weekend I posted the new site was nearly here, even made it front page news. That was your last chance to stop the release and get some changes done. Three replies, no suggestions.

So, now it's released and now you hate it. OK, that's fine, I can understand not everybody would like it. But instead of complaining, give me some suggestions, things I can improve. But not like this post. Saying it doesn't work without telling me what doesn't work. Or this one, I can't guess from that screenshot what OS and browser were used, I need that information (I can test with nearly all Operating System and browser versions and on 40+ mobile phones)

So, complain all you want, but make it constructive, give me something to work with.

So far......not impressed. Mostly information I have no interest in seeing and can't find information I was using (my detailed user stats). Did I give input before, No. Did I even see the post in the forum, No As a general rule, I do not spend time reading the forums in any the sites related to Boinc as they are most repetitive and generally not informative.

Much better layout. Loads quicker, easier to navigate both on desktop and mobile. Well done Willy. Ignore the Luddites

The user's line in lists isn't highlighted any more and no possibility to highlight other lines in a second color.

Great new design. I was away a wee bit from BOINC stuff, and coming back to this was nice. It was about time for a more modern look!

At first glance, three things I ran into:

Status Schedulers: Bringing back some color might be nice. Not to overdue it, it could be as simple as only displaying the word "Offline" in red (without making "Online" green), and putting a white/red/yellow/green circle in front of the statuses "No data", "No work available", "Not enough work" and "Work available", respectively. I think that would be a minimalistic but visually informative combination of the old & new style.

Hosts: The Host List page has sorting arrows in the rightmost columns (after the Group column and they don't do anything (at least when I try them in the latest Chrome). These are sorting arrows that didn't exist in the old UI and I always wished that I could sort on those columns, so it would be awesome if they actually worked in the new UI!

BAM!: When I click on this menu on the left, it expands, and whatever I click on under it, it correctly stays at the same expansion state. Except, however, if I select My detailed stats, the left side gets reset to Active Projects -> BOINC Combined. Is that a bug or by design? It caught me by surprise.

Thanks, Willy!

Added more color to the scheduler status and the BAM! menu now stays open when you go to your detailed stats.

Thank You! Easier on a quick glance to see what is up/down/etc.

Under "Detailed stats" on the "Chart" tab, is there any way to make the charts 2D as a default? Very slow loading in 3D.

Thanks

Interesting. It took only 4s for them to load for me on my machine. I wonder what is slowing you down. Or, you mean that ~4s is too slow?

WHY??? The new site sucks, nothing of interest is shown or can be found, no personal stats. The old site is 1000% more informative as this AppleDesignSite! Sorry total fail!

Much faster but the design is terrible. Far too small and cramped. The old design was far superior.

The new design really does "suck".

Its fiddly, the menu is bland and colourless.

Items are hard to find unless you know where to look.

The landing page after you log in, is just 100% tragically dismal.

I hope the classic page stays up long enough to outlive this mess.
