Ah, for some reason I remembered that I tried opening @Pixlz on iPad and didn’t see their bio, but I suppose I had a brain glitch.
Quick bug report.
When you click through to a badge it leaves the card up during the transition. It should hide it early. (Firefox Linux)
Discord does an interesting thing for their default user card banner. They use the average flat color from the user’s avatar.
Here is my example of this:
They are not the same, however.
Update: I hit a preset color, causing the colors to not be the same. (my bad)
FYI similar is done in Discourse: in Topic List Previews, although it’s using “Dominant Colour”, not “average”
I suspect Dominant Colour will give better results.
Is this bug being addressed as part of this redesign?
It is a bit upstream from the User Card I know, but causes a significant problem on the User Cards when they clash with Watched Words.
Just to close the loop Nathan:
This is added in the new update:
Add google maps link via site setting to user location
Would be awesome to also have support for OpenStreetMap.
This is added now You can now decide on using either Google Maps or OpenStreetMap in the settings
I think it’s a good redesign overall, but I think it’s important to have badge labels. Being able to distinguish between badges with the same icon at a glance is really important for a quick preview like this. For example, without the label, you can’t tell if this icon:
is a Famous Link, Great Reply, or Great Topic (as they’re configured on our site, YMMV). It’s even worse for the Getting Started category of badges- there are 16 badges that share the exact same icon there, with vastly different implications. It’s important for me as a moderator to be able to see when someone has a badge for reading the guidelines, for instance, but with this new design, that badge looks the same as 15 other highly different badges (including things like First Onebox and New User of the Month)
Please make it optional when you guys add this new user card to the discourse. The old one is much better than this new one and not to say that it adds a weird background color to the card which looks awful. and it does not show anything on the user card no info there.
Overall I don’t like it so would ask you please don’t force this on the discourse when you guys add this to the discourse.
We’d love to know what you like about the old design!
Could you expound on this? I see information when I click on your card and mine as well.
Are you using this on your own forum?
That looks like it’s my theme based on the transparency. We’ve been talking for a while now with all of the issues you have had and I’m not sure how much longer I can help unfortunately because the issues aren’t in the actual theme, rather incompatibilities I can’t seem to find.
Any errors in your console?
I was thinking this could be a theme compatibility issue.
btw, I would like to put my opinion the background color looks unpleasant when it picks the same color as the profile image. it would be better if you put a default background image or something rather than a profile color on the background. and the background should be blurred as this
personally, i really like it. this should be on a site level setting because i see people don’t really like it, but i think it’s great
working fine for me:
This has been low-key bugging me, so after some looking, I found
… which I think does a much better job for this purpose than taking the average. Examples from people’s avatars in this thread:
