Tinami's New Interface
(tm) 11/11/29 10:24
Okay, so a month or 2 ago Tinami changed its user interface.
I do not really feel that the new interface is a great upgrade over the previous one. This is mainly because in the previous overhaul, the upload thumbnail interface is more like a step-by-step sort of process. Now, it is basically machine generated, but we still have the manual control over it. The main problem is manual cropping of the thumbnail is somewhat sluggish and sometimes slow. After you cropped the area of the thumbnail, there is no "confirm" button, and you have to double-click, and the response sometimes is delayed.
Also, I still would have preferred the "Successfully Uploaded" screen, rather than having the "Upload Success" text appearing on the same page. Sometimes it misleads whether the file has been uploaded our not. lol.
Let me know your thoughts on the new revamped UI.

Hi. I am mostly satisfied with TINAMI's new UI.
I feel epsilon version is more refined than delta. Light color scheme, united("user" and "creator")menu, and umm...the monthly cover illustrations are gone.
But still complex a little to me, and often seem to confuse new users too.
So there is such a thread;
* Answer new users' questions
There is not general sitemap on this site, moreover the help pages are scatterd in contents(This is only my opinion).
Now, It is able to regenerate the thumbnail image till it satisfies our requirement. I welcome this point.
(Under earlier version, once the thumbnail is clipped, we couldn't change it.)
I haven't used auto thumnail generator once...
>the response sometimes is delayed.
At least these days I don't think response(of posting) is so slow.
(Of course, your environment will be probably different with mine.
The performance depends on network traffic, the browser, or computer's specs you are using etc..)
My concern is that the servers are down frequently. That's too bad.
If you have not checked the following thread yet, please check it.

Lol, your English is not too bad.
Yeah, I guess you are right. TINAMI is slow since I am in Canada, and my internet connection is not the fastest.
The thumbnail rectification feature for the upload process is a good improvement, in the future, I think we need an "EDIT" thumbnail function when we edit out art submissions.

I join TINAMI late, sometime around the whole chaos lounge fiasco in pixiv last year.
I think the interface is well organized: you can access everything you want and need from that row of menus up there.
Also that create thumbnail function is just plain awesome :D
