    looks Great to me on my computer.
    Good Work!
    best in slot: is the armor, weapon, clothing look, pet, or no pet, jewelry, race, class, skill choices, amount of DPS, and skin color best fit to you and the way you wish to play and makes you feel good and performs what YOU think it should be.

    worst in slot: what you read in zone chat, and forum comment, and forum thread, and you tube video, and live streamer advice, and class rep advice, and guild chat advice, and whisper told you to wear, and use for skill, and dress like, and use for weapon and armor.

    I really like the new news section on the home page. Many more articles accessable right away!

    But I also agree with many of the others here that the header and space below (forums) could be smaller. It just makes getting to the actual content take longer.

    On the home page I don't really like the huge ad for the latest content - currently Morrowind. I know that it's out, I have it, I don't need to be reminded of it everytime. For newcomers it might be good, for others not so much. It would be nice if it could be closed, because this also prevents seeing the interesting stuff right away.

    And the place of the language selection is rather unintuitive. I wouldn't have found it, had I not seen the place in this thread. Mainly, because most pages are very long and the footer is only visible when you are already far to the bottom. Selecting the correct language is something I would want to do right away, not after having looked through all of the page first.
    Maybe place it next to the support link in the header?

    I think it looks slick, but I find the scrolling header a bit intrusive. The way it minimizes as you scroll really bothers me, and it takes up too much of the screen even on a desktop computer. Especially since there's so much empty space!

    is this for your customers, that is we who pay for this, or is it to find more people to hire, or what ever??

    The more I use the forums today.. the more annoyed I am at the delayed loading of the header. Hopefully that fix coming will be lovely.

    Looks pretty nice. You might want to tighten up some of the empty spaces between text and borders, and between text windows, as that is a lot of extra real estate just sort of hanging around.

    That's the fully scrolled up header. It shrinks to something more reasonable when you start scrolling. The fundamental problem is the god-awful jerkiness.

    Big problem with that header tho. It appears EVERY FREAKING PAGE when you go to the next page of one of the sorts, forcing the next page of content down. We just need it to be a full header once.. then stay small.

    Oh.. and WHEN exactly,, will it remember my ID across the links on the top bar? I mean.. I really was born on 01/01/1900 after all....

    I hope the "jerkiness" mentioned previously is referring to the fact that the supposedly "static" top banner bounces around when you're scrolling. It doesn't do it when you click-and-drag the scroll bar, but does with mouse-wheel, page up/page down, and the arrow buttons. That might be browser-specific, as it doesn't seem to be an issue for me on Firefox.

    I think the top navigation,
    GAME ACCOUNT STORE FORUM SUPPORT
    is a bit too small, while the bar underneath (which is different depending on whether you're on the main site, the forums, or the account section) is a bit too big. The text in the lower bar should be a bit smaller than "The Elder Scrolls Online" in the bar above, while the top and bottom padding of the lower bar certainly needs to be reduced.

    Now that I had time to look at the site a bit longer, scrolling seems very laggy. And I get the impression that this is caused by all the things that get enlarged and reduced again - be it the header or any images if you happen to hover over them. This is rather annoying.

    Life Tip for those who think the header is too big:

    Install Adblock (if you haven't already).
    Rightclick the logo and block it.


    This way the huge logo that covers 25% of the screen will not be visible even if you are scrolled all the way up.It also stops the header from jumping.


    Blocking was the first thing I did when I saw this new monstrosity. Honestly ZOS, just get of that logo and we are all happy.

    For uBlock users, go in config and put the following in "My Filters"

    forums.elderscrollsonline.com##.universal-nav

    will remove that monstrosity at the top that takes up half your screen and jumps around like a Khajit on skooma.

    Seriously.. this is a feedback thread. Give them the feedback that the header is too big. We dont need a workaround, just to as many players as possible to tell them its too big and makes the screen jumpy.

    Certainly not. That doesn't fix the problem, it just hides it away.

    Honestly, I don't think that you should follow the trend of having mobile app makers work on websites meant to be viewed on a PC. The entire concept of how to make a well balanced site is different for the two mediums. Please revert or fix what you have for the main site and forums the improperly designed header and footer take up to half of the viewable space on a larger monitor.

    lol, thanks...for some odd reason I didn't think of that. BTW this applies to most of the elements to shrink it down to a manageable size.
