more changes to Hooked-in

Joe Pych

The kids have been sick this weekend.  So, this means I have free time for a change (versus taking them to ski training and indoor soccer games).  Using this free time to make changes to Hooked-in. I hope you like them.

Some of the changes:

  • moved all the navigation into a thinner header bar
  • moved all the post a catch, post a video, etc. into the header bar
  • removed some features that I did not think were very useful (did I remove anything that I shouldn't have?)

How do you like the changes?  I'm concerned that I went a little far in cleaning up.  I'm also concerned I made it harder to use by removing the text labels.

Let me know what you think.

Yeah, Joe, I don;t like having to move the cursor around to see what each symbol means. Can you put them back?

Joe, one last thing - can you group the icons by relation? For example, the "start discussion" iconis far from the "forums" icon.

OK, thought of something else. I have a couple of "top secret" spots where I catch some nice fish, and don't want to share the location. Usually, these are small local spots that really couldn't handle any additional fishing pressure, or already get too much.

Since I usually take all my catch photos on my iphone, so by default they include the GPS coordinates - giving away the location. Any way we could get an option that would allow us to choose whether or not to include the EXIF data when we upload our catch photos?

Ideally, we would be able to choose a "default", and then have the option to change from the default if needed for each catch...

I;m always confused at the beginning with any changes. But I'm sure I will adjust. It's such a great web site, I'll be happy.

i would like to see all the leaderboards back seems pointless to have the votes and points without them i know there was some rigging going on but i just overlook those and count the next one in line lol

 I like the personal best too, and the best of each category of fish. I liked going to a fish and being able to go to the biggest of that species.

I hear you (sorry about delay):

  • the leaderboard / personal bests are back (still needs some design TLC, but there)
  • the icon menu is re-ordered ... still not liking it, but want to give it a shot

Let me know what else you have.
