Card Database Feature Ideas
Here are a few feature ideas for the new Card Database
-Another button next to Printed and Oracle that says and goes to Rulings
-Under Available Formats your should be able to click on the formats for more information about those formats. I would put them in a stack like:
Standard – More Info (Hyperlink)
Brawl – More Info (Hyperlink)
-Suggestions in search if you can’t find what you are looking for.
-Blue text is not hyperlinked and feels like it should be. This might be a great feature to find other creatures with the same type or some feature like that. Same for the set name.
-Past the name of the card, different sections should either have a buffer (Orange line) or be a different color, larger font size, or different font than the other information in that section. Set Occurrences is an example of this.
-The card view portion of the search results page should have a default that can be set from the player’s profile. I only want to see Text-Card but I know others have different preferences.
-The card view portion of the search results page saves the previous view option however the sorting portion does not. This could be a little confusing.
-On the Advanced Search page, the button in the bottom right corner is cool but I did not know to press it. A potential solution to this is to also use this symbol on the simple search as well to keep unity between the two pages.
-In Advanced Search, it would also be helpful to be able to search by text in Rulings.
-In Advanced Search, the clear link should be either larger or a more obnoxious color to standout more as the light blue gets lost against the dark blue.
-Calling this Card Database feels a little weird when Gatherer exists. Perhaps a rebranding of one or both should be considered.
