New Manialink:Home

Post by david_jumper » 17 Jun 2010 19:11

Today i've noticed the new Manialink:Home Page. So what do you think about it?
I can say, that I dont like it, because:
- no categories (like Skins, Avatars, Mods)
- sort by Nation (why? I can't see any use)
- publish manialinks via ManiaPub (Now we have to pay coppers for publishing our manialink...)

So those are the 3 main arguments for me...

One thing that I don't like is that they completely changed
the good old menu to the new one. Just look at it. On the old one you could choose where you want to go (Skins,3D Models itp) And know you can't do any of these things because "Browse World" doesn't work.

I completely don't like the new Page.
I can't find anything there.

Amazed there aren't more complaints about this...

There's no way to browse through anything other than ads (paid by coppers or not, they are still ads). Now, there's no reasonable way to find old useful manialinks like Smurf's styles page, let alone anything else at all not driven by coppers.

Why isn't there at least a 'Browse Manialink Directory' linking to the legacy front page..?

You can find the legacy parts of the old manialink:home by entering the link of each section in the in-game browser as manialink:community, etc. The manialink "rlink" is a kind of manialinks directory, this can be a nice bookmark for your maniahome page. So you have different ways to find manialinks registered in the old system :wink:
To add a server in your favorit list, copy this link in your game’s browser address bar
tmtp://#addfavourite=serverlogin

For direct hosting open to all, write <hide_server>1</hide_server> in the command line and use
tmtp://#join=serverlogin
