Welcome to the New Orioles Nation

Welcome to the New Orioles Nation

PostPost #1 by Jordan Tuwiner » December 11th, 2012, 1:34 am

If you are reading this, you've likely noticed that Orioles Nation looks a little bit different. Over the past few days, I have been hard at work on redesigning the site. The previous design was nearly three years old and ON needed a new, fresh look. I put a lot of work into the new design and achieved the following goals:

  • created a design focused on content
  • cleaned up the code in order to have pages load faster
  • added breadcrumbs to make it more clear which page you are on and how you got there

Player Profiles
The player profiles look very similar, but no longer have headings for unnecessary fields. Also, all stats in the player profiles have been updated.You can now sort players in probably too many ways. My favorite ways to browse are by recently added, recently updated, position, school/from, options remaining, MiLB free agent eligible, and Rule 5 eligible. Do you want to know which players are 24 years old? All of the players who are 6' 2"? Players drafted in the 1st round? I know you were interested in the players who weigh 190 lbs. I deleted a number of former players. I simply did not have the time to update their profiles. I did keep some, which you can view here. In the future a player's profile will be kept even if he exits the organization.

Transactions
The new transactions page is much more clear and will be kept up-to-date during the season. You can also browse transactions by team:


More Features
Overall, I think the site is much easier to navigate and looks much nicer. If you find any bugs or see something displaying incorrectly please contact me.
