Wait does that mean were going to loose our SMART SCORE? If we don't I agree :) @help123please.

why move backwards ?As years progress the layout also changes bringing us a better openstudy ! I like the current layout :)
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Dayum. 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/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Topics-OS.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/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Openstudy_math.jpg Yep. http://www.blokeish.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/open-study-worlds-largest-study-group-help-learn-discuession.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.

Now that i think about it, I LOVE THIS SITE AS IT IS NOW! :)

Well the layout right now is more clean, than how it used to be in some of the screenshots provided by @dumbsearch2.
anonymous

And i think its more organized.

thats what I am also pointing at

Yeah I also liked the studypads, even though i wasn't here when that happened, but it sounds great!

@dumbsearch2 I have used these old interfaces .But I like the current interface more

The ones that look crappy are these http://www.allmyfaves.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Openstudy_math.jpg http://www.blokeish.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/open-study-worlds-largest-study-group-help-learn-discuession.jpg Because that's when OpenStudy was turning into what it was now, design-wise.

@AravindG what was the XP
AravindG

that one ^^ ..the top users were the ones with most medals/questions answered and they had a special colour around them and their rank near them
anonymous

YEAH , that is what i like the COLORS :)
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
I wonder... how many redesigns did openstudy go through ? like, timeline ? or screenshots for each in order ?
AravindG
  • AravindG
well @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
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
BTW is that top users screenshot from these ? http://www.blokeish.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/open-study-worlds-largest-study-group-help-learn-discuession.jpg
dumbsearch2

from this design ? http://www.blokeish.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/open-study-worlds-largest-study-group-help-learn-discuession.jpg

@AravindG but now we have SS and we never know when we are going to increase lol.
AravindG
  • AravindG
@dumbsearch2 I am not sure we had many interfaces
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Personally, I think that was when openstudy was getting how it was now. Much prefer. http://blog.openstudy.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Topics-OS.png
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
and http://blogs.cofc.edu/tlt/files/2010/12/openstudy2.jpg
AravindG
  • AravindG
ya you are right ...
AravindG
  • AravindG
well 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
  • dumbsearch2
really ? I thought that 100 didn't even exist! I thought they just made an exception for satelite because he contributed so much!:P
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah true true @AravindG and i guess that is good though.
AravindG
  • AravindG
lols @dumbsearch2
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Nah. I'm serious. Salelite is the ONLY one with 100
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah he is.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
YES. The changes in the SS were great. I just prefered some of the designs. And studypad. and acheivements. and teh good stuf
AravindG
  • AravindG
infact we didnt have message system at all :)
AravindG
  • AravindG
those good ol days :)

I regret not having snapshots of old OS with me now :/
toxicsugar22
  • toxicsugar22
look at my question I posted it
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
there a lot of them online I found a couple, which I posted here :)
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Interesting. I guess they didn't want this to become like a socila nteowrk through PMs. Kinda like stackoverflow
AravindG
  • AravindG
but I agree to one satement @dumbsearch2 they had very good feedback response and fast implementations here .Infact some of my suggestions were taken and implemented in 1-2 days !
tyteen4a03
  • tyteen4a03
I would like the original layout with the smartscore color.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I 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. (:
anonymous
  • anonymous
Doesn't matter. I don't see a big difference.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
"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, content-centered, content-not-gradient type of design that Metro instills.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
"Honestly this way it looks more like a quality help site, rather than a social network. " Um. No. Back then, there weren't all these social nonsense, like the chatting and PMs.
AravindG
  • AravindG
@dumbcow wouldnt it be better if you posted about it separately ?
AravindG
  • AravindG
I mean about the developing part
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
whos dumbcow ?
AravindG
  • AravindG
its a user .Why did you ask ?
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
or is dumbcow refering to me ? If so, that's extremely rude!
AravindG
  • AravindG
oops sorry I mentioned the wrong person ..it was to you @dumbsearch2
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
theres no one named dumbcow on this thread .-.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
the design IS developed. I don't understand, it's all related. You develop design. Duh ?
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
And the old design looks kinda like the StackOverflow/StackExchange network, hardly social network-ish.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Let me rephrase what I said: not sophisticated and not a social network site. I meant it has defined design, unlike a blog. Its simple, yet easy and clear to use... its organized. (:
AravindG
  • AravindG
well then continue :)
AravindG
  • AravindG
so basically you want the site to resemble stack overflow ?
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
no. I don't.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
I just wish they woudn't stop developing this site. And no need to be rude, there is such a thing called "inspiration"!
AravindG
  • AravindG
then ?
AravindG
  • AravindG
:)
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
And metro does not apply to specific site. It's a design concept, a way of designing. It's centered on content, instead of flashing gradients.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
And no need to be rude!
AravindG
  • AravindG
who became rude ?
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
I love the originzation. Just on a study website, I could see a content-oriented design like Metro working quite well.
dumbsearch2
  • dumbsearch2
Was I rude ?? You called me dumbcow! And you started saying mean stuff to me!! .-. I'm just suggesting something, I love this site too! Geez!
AravindG
