Arsenal Report v4

Posted by Ix Techau almost 3 years ago · 76 replies

Ok here's the deal: the site is getting a visual makeover and will have a handful of new features added (and some removed). I already have a list of ideas ranging from super cool to super dumb, but before I get started I want to hear your ideas for how we can improve the site.

Best of all: We're giving away THREE Arsenal shirts to participants in this thread, as thanks for getting involved. Home, away, third...your choice. I'll pick two winners based on their suggestions, and then let's do the third one random.

Sounds good? Good. Get started. I'm open to any suggestions, ranging from colour schemes to brand new features to suggestions about removing stuff...really anything. I'm mostly interested in how we can make the Transfer Centre and Injury Room better, as those are our primary features, but again...open to anything.

Here's a summary of (realistic) ideas so far:

  • Lineup/Formation maker (like lineupbuilder and all those, but something that doesn't look like absolute dog shit)
  • Historic kits
  • Countdown timer to next game
  • Arse-O-Pedia (Arsenal encyclopedia)
  • St Totteringham's Day through history
  • Suspensions section
  • Activity based forum karma points (you lose points for not being active)
  • WYSIWYG for posts and comments
  • All-time trophy room
  • Positivity index (perhaps based on #WengerOut trends)
  • Quiz
  • Videos section
  • Transfer Centre: ROI chart
  • Transfer Centre: Countdown timer to transfer window
  • Transfer Centre: Transfer rumours and linked player
  • Injury Room: % of first team squad matches lost to injury, overall and by position
  • Comment previews before posting
  • News feed
  • Injury comparisons between all Premier League clubs

Love it. Was just about to suggest more advanced stats betting goals and assists (passing and shooting accuracy, chances created, tackles, whatever you can get). Some more ideas: * Player ratings by match (either from another site or taking votes from members, which could also link to discussion on the match) and trends as indicators of who is in form based on recent play * Track some stats and playing time or other information for reserves and players on loan so we can get a sense for potential future contributors

Countdown timer. For example, 6 hrs left for the match. Irrespective of the time zone, it will be a canonical indicator of the time when the game starts.

Please remember to stay on topic, refrain from personal attacks, and laugh at Spurs every day.

Dumb question -- what is a 26.4 projection mean? On scale of 1-10, what is a 26.4?

Dumb question -- what is a 26.4 projection mean? On scale of 1-10, what is a 26.4?

Not a dumb question! First step was to get all the data in there, next step is to explain what the Dribble scores mean. Basically, the Dribble fantasy football app assign scores to players for performance. They then make a projected score based on the data available, to make it easier to pick players on match days. There is no upper limit, but I've never seen a player get more than 60-70. Normal is around 20 I think.

App is awesome by the way, check it out: http://drbl.io/arsenal_report

This should bang. Best of luck with coding all those updates.
