There are a few threads going on about this and I'd like to bring them together here so we can all discuss this redesign in one place. We invite any and all feedback about the new guide design, positive as well as negative! Let's work together to make this great for everyone!

So, what does everyone think of it now that it's up? What do you like, what do you dislike, what would you like to see changed? Please give as much detail as you can about your concerns, so that we can best address them :)

Things that we have already fixed or adjusted;

  • The word "Array" was appearing where the builds should have been for guests
  • Guides with only 1 chapter (wanting to have a custom table of contents) no longer show the automatic table of contents
  • Passive skill is displayed again
  • Odd out of place grey colors on the discussion tab's comments (they were meant to be dark blue, was a bug)
  • Team 1 and team 2 split, and team names, are back in and should be handling all situations properly now
  • TOC is fixed on all guides now, whether there is 1 or many chapters

Things we will be addressing;

  • No build names
  • No stats breakdown (where bonuses are coming from) in the tooltips over statistics box
  • Stats still not 100% accurate (ex. missing masteries)
  • Multiple item builds (yes, we are still planning to do this!)
  • Author's choice for champion image to use next to builds and possibly in toc, either from a list of skins or possibly a custom image

You can review some feedback we have already received and / or addressed in these threads, which are locked and directed here;

The green squares in the skilling order. I don't think they match the colour scheme. But I brought this up before :P Additionally, with the blue background, it is easier to see how the masteries "cut off"; the bottom of the golden outline isn't there. Perhaps something like SoloMid's custom box layout would look nicer.

As I said matt; the green doesn't match. I mean, a girl agrees with me so it has to be true ;)

Table of contents has indeed been removed however it still creates the golden heading saying 'Chapter 1' which is something I'd like to see removed.

I don't see the passive skill displayed tbh. Is that just me?

Ah, thanks. Chapter 1 heading will be removed. The passive skill display is missing due to caching, will fix shortly.

Guides with many chapters, my Annie guide for example, also have no ToC.
To be updated soon!

I was kinda shocked first after seeing the new design.....I don't know, but I really liked the old Design because it differed from the other build-sites like solomid (because now the skills bars kind of remind me of that page).

But on the other side, bringing the comments section to the top was a good idea, but can't it just switch from the build to the comments, like it switches from build to build, or is that too much to realize? Because now the whole page has to reload and it loads a bit too long.

Now it actually looks good after seeing the design on differet builds.

Only points left for me are:
    Green colour of the skillpoints in the levelbars
    Not being able to view the passive of a champion (but I noticed it will be fixed)
    And a general question, not about the new design but: Why are cooldownreductions from masteries not noted in the stats in the beginning of a championbuild?

Yeah, I lost my ToC and all of my headers as well. To be honest though... I think it would be a nice option for the authors to have the ability to toggle the ToC and the Headers individually so that we can place our own banners if we'd like to, but still have the convenience of the built in ToC. This would make it easier on everyone I think and not require others to use a single chapter layout to achieve the look they are going for. Just another idea.

@Paralysekid, masteries are not yet included in stats, it's a known issue even in the old design. We will be adding this soon. Passive is in. Green color we have heard a few complaints and may adjust it :)

@Cubby1313 and Xeronn, the table of contents is now fixed. Guides with one chapter have no toc and no chapter heading, all other guides have it now.

Team 1 and team 2 separations and names are now back in :) For those that relied on this to split up your builds and label your build groups, you can do this once again.

More to come!
