New Store Launched

Hi Everyone,

Today we launch our new store! This is the first in a series of releases that will revamp the whole of CurseForge and all the sites powered by it. Through this we'll be modernizing the layout and style of the sites as well as addressing the long standing concerns many of our authors have had.

It's important to know that many actions related to points need to be completed from within the new store. Purchasing points, viewing your totals and history, as well as transferring points to other users. Project reward splits are still configured on the current site.

Below you'll find a nice screenshot of the general layout of the new store. We already have a list of improvements for the next iteration. You have my word that they'll be here soon, but please give us your feedback as well. We'd love to know what you guys think.

The new store can be found at store.curseforge.com.

    @Lombra: Go

    The store is but a taste of what's to come. You are correct in hoping for "slick" new looks. ;)

    As for the WowAce vs CurseForge thing, that's a matter of perspective. WowAce as a community predates the rest of CurseForge, and part of the original setup for WowAce has always been strict guidelines, a community focused approach, and only allowing contributions via repositories, not file uploads.

    Could we merge them? Sure. Will we? Perhaps one day, but there are no plans to do so. We really don't want to disturb our communities just to make things a little neater.

    As far as the forums are concerned, I hear ya. That is one of the things we'll be fixing as well. Some of the forums are currently shared between CF and WowAce, and won't be once we migrate those to the new stack.

    Looks great! I always thought Curseforge looked rather dull. Looking forward to the overhaul. Hope it'll be more in line with the slick looks of Curse. (while not making it more confusing by adding cool stuff just for the hell of it)

    I don't suppose this will do away with the whole Curseforge vs. WoWAce disparity? It feels kind of pointless. As far as I've understood it all boils down to a few arbitrary requirements of better following good practices for qualifying for using WoWAce. Why "separate" authors based on their coding experience? The two forums are rather confusing also. Actually the WoWAce forum I understand, because I use it. But the Curseforge forum? Some subforums seems to be directly linked to the WoWAce forum, while others are exclusive to Curseforge, which no one seems to use.

    Just my two heavy cents. Probably not the ideal place for for this kind of discussion, just thought it would be a good time to look at things of such magnitude when doing an overhaul!

    Is there the possibility of showing points on your profile, like the previous system did?

    Other than that, looks like a nice way to unify all of the stores for the various communities, and provides a little more information than it did before on each product.

    Glad to see the revamp! It looks good and is a lot more functional now. I find it will be easier to use.

    Very bad! JavaScript is now required to use the store and to view transactions. Please fix this bug as soon as possible.
