Version 3 Beta
The long teased redesign can now be previewed by all users. Before you do, know that you'll need a modern browser: Internet Explorer 9, Safari 5, Firefox 4, or the latest version of Chrome. If you're sure you're ready, head over to your Preferences
page and scroll down to where it says "Theme" and select the Version 3 Beta theme. You can change back to the old theme at any time.
New Xbox Live & PSN Widgets (updated)
Also new on the Preferences page, Xbox Live Gamertag and PlayStation Network ID settings will enable any future Xbox- or PlayStation-related features, as well as provide data to the new "Xbox Live" and "PlayStation Network" widgets you can add to your profile page
(or login page). This will display your Gamer Pictures, GamerScore, Trophies, and recently played games. Jose's page
has examples of both.
In recent weeks, many other updates have rolled out silently (mentioned only in the Suggestions forum thread
), including: user comment history on user pages; clickable links to afformentioned comment history and Miis now display in those very same comments; user image gallery pages are now paginated; private messages now inform of new comments on your uploads; there's a brand new "Upload" page with support for 3DS-made Miis; some long-standing comment editing bugs have been resolved; support for foreign language characters in comments has been fixed; and controversially, the user Mii pages have been paginated. We're working on a further revamped solution for the user Mii pages, and will resolve the issues reported soon.
New Artist Profiles
It's been a long time coming, but there are now new Mii artist profiles: dizzy boy
and King Galaxy
, two long-standing members and heavy contributors. The community voted, and we all thank them for sharing their artistic visions with us over the years. Congratulations to them both. If there's an artist you feel deserves the spotlight, click on the "Vote for Artist" button on their Mii Portfolio.
Version 3 Beta Notes
If you have any technical problems (not relating to visual bugs) with the new layout, please be sure to report them
If you'd like to see your original artwork used in the headers and footers of GamerCreated.com, simply upload your work to the Images section and send me a private message
with links to your artwork. I'll review your submissions, and if any fit the criteria they will be taken into consideration.
There may be some visual inconsistencies on some pages of the site. We are aware of these issues and will patch them before Version 3 is taken out of "Beta" status later in March for the release of the 3DS.
Thanks for the support, now let's see those 3DS Miis next month!
