Feedback for upgrading Basil?
Hey Basilers, hope you're well.
Allergies aside, I love this time of year! How about you?
I'd like to share my thoughts about the possibility of completely revamping BasilMarket so as to encourage more sharing. In short, if you're familiar with BZL I'm considering importing that engine to BasilMarket. Read on for more detail or if you're unfamiliar with BZL.
+ more focus on sharing screens / videos - they no longer require approval as you are encouraged to post as you would on a social media site - big and small achievements, funny stuff, etc.
+ the functionality and user interface are FAR superior and funner
+ your personal profile page is really awesome, check out WatchGintama as an example
+ your profile page has links to a number of external social media profiles if you have them, ie Twitch
+ when you stream on Twitch, a story is auto-created for you to help get you more viewers
+ the guild functionality works!!
+ you can log in / sign up with a variety of different methods (facebook, twitch, etc)
+ custom avatars (not player pic)
+ the PM system is a true live chat / texting experience, unlike the current setup which is more like sending an email
+ forum threads, screens and videos would be imported, ofc
- it's new - some of you are averse to shiny new things, but think of it as a bowl of poutine when you've only ever had french fries w/ ketchup
- avatars are no longer your player pic
Let me know your thoughts, concerns, suggestions!
