We want to thank everyone for making their voices heard and appreciate your patience while we make sure to tackle the feedback as thoughtfully and thoroughly as we can.

In lieu of this I want to stress while I absolutely love seeing all the various layout ideas that people come up with, the goal of this particular mock-up is to stay as close to the current version as possible while adding quality of life / design improvements.

People are absolutely still allowed to post other designs and suggestions, there is always room for improvement after all and I'm happy to link other ideas since this has more or less become a megathread at this point. But please do keep this in mind. ♥

The closer the layout remains to the current version the more likely it is to be implemented.

I will save that rage
for when we meet again.

Totally supporting this. The new layout has good idea behind it, but it feels too cluttered and very straining/claustrophobic imo.

@Melralis Thank you so much for the ping![emoji=guardian star size=1] I absolutely support this in so many ways.

Thank you so much for the ping! I absolutely support this in so many ways.
I've said it once and I don't mind saying it again. I completely agree with your suggestion and think it would be way more visually appealing.

I posted positively in the announcement thread, but I really want the dragon info next to the dragon. I screenshot my exalts to enter in spreadsheets later and shrinking the page is going to be very annoying.

Also upon reflection, everyone is right about the dotted lines.

If they moved apparel down and made the second section toggleable, it would also give a lot of people who have asked to be able to collapse dragon lineage what they want.

Thank you for your concise, well-illustrated suggestion!

I like this, although I'd much rather see the top row go back to being only two coulmns tbh. It's so crowded now -- my dragons feel like they're almost an afterthought. The arrow buttons could definitely be smaller. :o

Would it be possible to move the apparel down to the center of the second row and add a toggle between apparel and battle stones, just to free up some space?

I also hate the dotted lines. ><;; I'm sorry, I'm complaining a lot, this is just making my head hurt to look at all of this. I love clean interfaces and negative space. This is...not clean.

Remove them ugly boxes pleaseeeeeee. Don't mind what happens to the apparel box, could take it or leave it where it is. But the dotted lines when there is no something bother me enormously.

110% support from me! Especially with the info and apparel being swapped. An absolutely unnecessary change imo.

I like this suggestion! Especially the sections below the dragon being collapsible/toggleable - all of my dragons have extensive bios, and I’d like the option to hide the other sections to make the bio more prominent.
