As requested, I am putting my layout feedback in suggestions.

Starting by the fundamental explanations of why there is a problem: [quote name="Amayai" date="2020-06-08 06:59:08" ] (...)From a design perspective, your eye enters the dragon page from the apparel. It's not so bad because it seems constrained to the bottom left area, which is gestalt-wise the least important and memorable, but it's[b] certainly[/b] not more important than the dragon's info (hatchday, length, genes), which got renegated to the bottom row. Apparel is unimportant unless a viewer is specifically looking for a piece's name, and it's redundant to have apparel and the dragon wearing the apparel in the same "most important" row of the profile page. [b]My point: Apparel and dragon info should switch places. The rest of the revamp is absolutely gorgeous. But apparel is not important enough to be the first thing you see in a dragon's page, besides being redundant since the dragon's image is already wearing the apparel.[/b] (...) What bothers me UNQUESTIONABLY is the place of apparel and info. People actively seek for physical info all the time because many times a dragon's genes aren't visible under apparel, and nobody can tell the color names just by looking at them. Physical info is 10x more important than apparel and should be in the first row. Nobody seeks out apparel unless they wanna know the name of a piece, because all apparel is ALREADY VISIBLE on the dragon. Having the info before the dragon also wouldn't bother me because it's not imagetic. There's no colors and stark contrast pulling the attention to that area like the apparel does. That means reading would flow from the dragon name straight to the dragon's top left, as it's the next element with the starkest contrast in the reading flow. Just....... I really hope staff moves apparel to the info row and teh physical info to the top row.

Yes i love that second mockup. I personally think that the familiars should take a step back as well, because they're too close and too distracting from the dragon (im actually considering removing all of the familiars from my hib den dragons. Theyre just too... close)

And adding to that: those squares for apparel need to either look like the ones you show in the second picture or be invisible. Those dotted swuares just look too unfinished. The left/right buttons need to be smaller (and maybe centered around the dragon/not on the bottom as well)

I definitely support, the mockups are gorgeous, and would make it much more visually pleasing,

Yes! It just feels more natural this way

Support definitely. I dont dislike the new layout but switching the info and apparel would make it much nicer imo. Also the second mockup putting the lineage in the middle is a great idea, seeing as we're used to it being there

I love these! I'm adjusting to the new layout, but I would like if we had more customization control over it, and it was a little more streamlined:

- Empty apparel boxes do not show
- Lineage text box centered
- Making Likes a feature you can disable in your options
- Ability to move different boxes (physical info; battle info; etc) around
- Possibly even a "legacy" skin that feels a lot more like the old profile?

I'm sure the team will be taking a lot of feedback into account and will make the adjustments they feel necessary soon enough! Hopefully it becomes something that we can all learn to love! :D

I agree that the apparel should go back where it was. I care infinitely more about the physical info of my dragons than the apparel, especially in my own lair where a lot of them don't even have outfits. It's not like it was hard to find in the first place.
