Thanks everyone for the feedback.  I have a nice pile of things to improve on the new layout... like.. a lot actually.

I'll give it another update in a week probably..  but yeah I appreciate it.

Part of my fault on here is that I work on a 2560x1440 monitor....  so .. I kind of failed to keep in mind that some people use laptops with much smaller resolutions (my gf for one).. and it looks pretty terrible and non-user-friendly on her laptop.

Thanks for the link psim!

Haha this is my problem daily as well. I was just viewing this on a non-maximized window in the Mac's retina display mode so the resolution was a bit smaller and I could tell there was wrapping going on.

A few suggestions:

The channels tab should be ordered based off of if you're online or not. Also, change the "OFFLINE/LIVE/Username" to a different color because some of the vid captures make it hard as fuck to read the text, or just bold them. Last but nto least, possibly put counters on the Events/Channels tab? If there are 4 channels live, there should be a small glowing "4" on top of the channels tab to show there are other channels. If there are 6 upcoming events, it should do the same thing.

Thanks good ideas...  Yeah styling/UI-design is not my forte...     also, I thought the channels tab was sorted based on who is online or not already...  I know that was a bug in the old design, but I thought I fixed that.  Are live streams still showing lower in the list than offline streams?

I wasn't sure. There is only one person online atm and I remember it being a problem like, 4-5 days ago. I just wanted to post in case no one mentioned it, as I'm in a bit of a rush atm.

Last I checked, yes. some were still showing lower. Sometimes, offline shows up for a user even though its the primary stream with the top viewers (Fish's stream last night was like this).  Wouldn't mind a manual refresh button for each of the four sections.

Tuesday was the 1-year anniversary of http://www.watchl4d.com

I figured i'd post some old screenshots to bring back memories (I doubt anyone cares, but whatevs)

Old Look..


I ended up making a portal where people could make there own watchl4d's.  This was the beginning of a homepage.  ::)


Initial working revision of getting broadcasts/highlights working


Still dealing with the same old prototype layout and trying to weasel in new features...


Trying to figure out a new layout..


Scrapped that and started on what we have today. People hated this initially..


I'm a server-side programmer.  This is me working on all this front-end stuff:



 :P

I've been streaming for a while, now. I'd love to be added to the WatchL4D list. Getting better internet bandwidth the 1st of May, so stream quality should get better, but for now it still looks pretty good, IMO.
