My Starcraft 2 Website Project - A closer look

As promised yesterday, I'm going to give you more information about my soon-to-be-launched Starcraft 2 website.

The website is still password protected so you can't access it right now. Therefore I'm not gonna link the URL. However, I'm going to show you pictures.

Please keep in mind we haven't made the final touches yet, so it will look better than that when it's 100% finished.

And since a picture is worth a thousand words, here is 10000 words worth of pictures:

As you can see, the top window will allow you to see all the Top rated Guides, Replays, Users and to quickly access them.

The 4th tab called "New Shields" is a list of guides / replays who got an award, which we call "Shields". You earn them when one of your guides or replay got a lot of positive ratings:

Those shields will always appear next to your avatar when you post guides and comments, not only to show off, but also to provide links to your best contributions to other users.

Shields will also be listed in your user profile page, along with other information:

Creating an account will be easy as pie and only take a few seconds:

You will always be able to track your current XP while logged in, thanks to this little user window on the left side of the screen:

Each new level you gain, you will unlock new avatars, which you can activate in 2 clicks right from the "Manage Account" window from the above picture. Here is how it looks like (click to enlarge the image):

To make sure you don't miss it, you'll get a congratulations notice whenever you level up:

Of course, the website will also offer an advanced replay search and an advanced guide search function:

For the guide writing tool, we really worked hard to provide our guide writers with everything they need:

And finally a last big spoiler. There were only 6 Ranks on wow-pro (Registered Member, Trusted Member, Honored Member, Revered Member, Exalted Member, Moderator), there will be 20 on this new Starcraft 2 Website, here are the ranks and the XP required for each rank:

The website should be up and running before the end of February, hopefully before the beta starts.

I'm really excited about this new project and I'm sure you guys will help me make this new website as great, if not better, as wow-pro.

Stay tuned!

    Haha, I knew someone would pick up on that. Oh well, not that big of a secret anyway ;)

    I'll probably open the website within 10 days.
