We’re very excited to announce that the new chat/game page redesign will be launching soon after almost four months of work. I thought I’d give you guys a sneak peak!
We’ve rebuilt chat from the ground up and it now works quite differently from before, so it’s not just a shiny coat of paint. Some notable new features:
*Reduced lag/faster load times
*Game info (description, instructions, rating, etc) and achievement info as tabs in chat area
*Better chat profile (more info, recent badges displayed)
*Better room changer (integrated into chat area, favorite rooms, rooms organized by language, room descriptions)
*Better PMs (link to PM when you rollover a name, reply link on all PMs received, error messages if you PM someone offline)
*Friends online list integrated into chat
*Developer collaboration (just display to start with, we’ll add revenue share/D icons next)
*Support for non-unicode characters (Chinese, Japanese, Russians, Koreans, Israelis, etc can rejoice)
*The below game area of the chat is also getting a light redesign
