Hey guys (and gals),

Today, we are announcing the addition of two long awaited features which are related to guide editing. As some of you may have already noticed, both of these have actually been live since the start of the weekend, so let's get right to explaining how they work, shall we? :)


Purchase Order Notes

The first new feature is the addition of notes to item purchase orders. Authors can use these to add any additional thoughts they have on the purchase orders included in their cheatsheet, which is especially useful for sections which contain situational items. Here's how it works:

In The Guide Editor

While editing a guide, each purchase order now displays a "Notes" box below the selected items. Authors can use this field to add their thoughts before saving/publishing the guide in order for the notes to show up in the cheatsheet (see right).

In the Guide Cheatsheet

Once saved and published, a question mark icon will display in the cheatsheet next to any item purchase order which has additional author notes. Mousing over this icon will show the contents of the "Notes" box to readers. As shown on the image below, BBCode works within these fields as well.

Threats

The second addition are so called Threats, which can be used by an author to provide additional information about specific (lane) matchups and why they are easy or problematic for the god the guide is written for. This feature works as follows:

In The Guide Editor

Next to the "Purchase Order" and "Skill Sequence" tabs in the guide editor, you might have noticed there's a new "Threats" tab. As an author, clicking on this tab will take you to the overview of threats which have been added to your guide.

For every individual threat, there are 5 levels of danger to choose between, ranging from Tiny (1) to Extreme (5). After making a selection, the notes box below it can be used to add an explanation as to why the specific god fits in the selected category.

Additional threats (beyond the first) can be added by using the green + button, while removing an added threat can be done by clicking on the "Delete This Threat" button below the notes box.

In The Guide Cheatsheet

In the guide cheatsheet, threats are shown at the bottom, below the item purchase orders and the skill sequence.

Here, the threat bar has been reversed in order for the largest threats to be shown to readers first. Users can select any of the threat categories in order to few more information regarding the gods which have been placed within them; each of these categories also have a counter above them to notify the reader of how many gods that category contains in total.

The description of the first three gods per threat level are shown by default; if a specific category contains more than 3 gods, the others can be displayed by pressing the "Load More" text at the bottom of the cheatsheet.





While we still plan on improving the design of Threats, we also wanted to make sure you guys had the opportunity to work with these features as soon as possible, so please make sure to leave your feedback below and let us know if you have any questions/concerns! :)

Thanks to Janitsu for the signature!

Lol I thought you were threatening us.

Yay! Best update ever!

Also, should we still add an items chapter now that we have a convenient PO notes feature??
