Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Dayum. I was just going to post about this!!! But anyways. The site right now looks I'm be blunt. crappy. You don't have to revert it, but at least make it look like how it used to. except with the SS and stuff. and the chats. But man, I was going to post about it! I mean, objectively. Look at this http://blog.openstudy.com/wpcontent/uploads/2010/08/TopicsOS.png So clean. And modernist. And I'm standing here, thinking... why the downgrade ? And the site isn't even maintained any more. I looked at old blog posts! there used to be prizes on OpenStudy (announcements on the blog showed me that, like finding owlfred's glasses), the team was bigger (I believe, the only one posting now is Preetha). And the redesigns were awesome. New features all the time. What happened ? http://media1.biola.edu/chimes/photos/2010/Sep/27/Openstudy.png I think this is when the site started getting a little worse, a little bit more like how it is today http://www.allmyfaves.com/blog/wpcontent/uploads/2011/06/Openstudy_math.jpg Yep. http://www.blokeish.com/blog/wpcontent/uploads/2011/06/openstudyworldslargeststudygrouphelplearndiscuession.jpg And it even appears that there used to be something called "Achievements". https://s3.amazonaws.com/hackedu/ahievements_openstudy.jpg No idea why they got rid of it along with the addition of the SmartScore. Now, this is just me, browsing pictures of how OpenStudy used to be, reading blog posts. What exactly was the timeline in the design part ? I'm curious. And.... what was Studypad ? http://blogs.cofc.edu/tlt/files/2010/12/openstudy2.jpg BTW don't get me wrong. I love this site. It just seems like a startup team that was AMAZING, brilliant ideas, amazing goals, but is kinda... well, lost it's passion and vigur that startups start with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well @some_someone at that time we had something called levels instead of smartscore , to surpass one level we need to get a particular number of experience points like we do in some games

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well the SS system was introduced to remove some flaws in level system ..like we could randomly give medals to get experience points and hence reach a higher leevel easily ..There were many 100 level users at that time unlike now when satellite is the only one with 100 SS

dumbsearch2

jazy
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I like the original format... especially the colorful SS. (: However, I like the current format as well. Its looks compact and sophisticated, since everything is in the same color theme. Honestly this way it looks more like a quality help site, rather than a social network. I wasn't here at the time of old OS, but I don't think we shouldn't complain about the responses to our suggestions and/or problems. This has nothing to do with the OS format, but with the traffic in the site. There are plenty more users now than there were 1 or 2 years ago. (:

dumbsearch2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2"sophisticated" isn't always best. I don't want them to revert back to the old design, I just don't want them to stop developing this site. There used to seem like there were team members active on the blog that aren't there before... is everyone layed off, or what ? Regarding sophisticated, I love the simplistic, contentcentered, contentnotgradient type of design that Metro instills.
