no. its pretty easy to find everything and it loads faster than most other websites ( although I haven problem with any other site but GTAF is loaded as soon as I press refresh. instantly)


apart from that I think this is the wrong section for this thread

Forum is simple, easy to use, fast and has a range of skins.

It's perfect, go ahead and lock it Adrian, I figured I'd answer the question anyway.

EDIT: I thought A was going to lock it since it was in the V section.

I like it. An android app would be nice though. My phone browser's bookmark feature will do for now.

I came to these forums from the Bioshock Infinite forums and I must say, this one feels extremely dated and I do dislike the dark colors. The 2k forums also have an autosave feature, so if your internet crashes out you don't lose that giant wall of text you just wrote.

There is no question that this is the most active forum I've ever been on in regards to gaming. It seems like 5 minutes after a topic is posted there is already a full page or two. Love the community here.

Aesthetically, it probably could use an upgrade.

There should be an option; "Yeah, I want an even darker color"

But change is nice as long as its only cosmetic smile.gif

Who ever says no is lying to themselves. This forum can go with a upgrade. Change isn't what we always want but it does make it better. Humans always try to change things. Its in our nature.

They should change the Grayish background though, it's kind of boring if you ask me. Like change it to something about GTA V or something like that.

Let's at least swich it up! It's dark and moody like IV. Make it more lively and bright like V! That would increase the hype even more!

I hope not, Ive been here five years now, and the only change I rember stylistically was a change to the banner to have more GTAIV stuff.

If the whole blue and grey changed Id have to change the skin in the options again, which I only change for X-mas to the X-mas theme.

Dunno I just like it mainly because it's the only forum I've stayed on this long and actively even if the activity is in bouts. (Though GameFAQ's and Gundam Forums are giving it a run for it's money in terms of me being active, mainly because I'm really only active in the V section now a days)

You know you can change the skin of the forum, right? Just go to your account settings and change it.

Speaking of which, I use the GTAVice.com theme icon14.gif

But no, the site is good as it is. If they change it, they'll probably just make it worse

Number one change would be inline image scaling, so big images can't change the width. Click/rollover scaled images to see full size. Everything else is fine and I hate change for change's sake usually.

Can't say I care but I voted no simply because if something isn't broken why try and fix it?

This website has looked the same for 10 years, not likely to change.

Eh, the default skin is fine. Maybe add some GTA V stuff to the top banner of the default skin since it showcases the history of GTA.

I love the layout of GTAForums. It's been going strong for like a decade or something like that, and it's very convenient. Besides, I'm so f*cking tired of websites getting layout changes every few months, and that usually only accomplishes making the website more complicated and difficult to use.

Since I joined here, I believe the only feature that was added was the addition of "Fast Reply", and I was very happy with that. This was added shortly after some hackers took down GTAForums for a while. Some of us retreated to GTAGaming, and many of us praised that site's use of the "fast reply" feature. So, this was recommended by the community after GTAForums was back up.

EDIT: I do like Magic Al's "image scaling" idea though. Also, it would be nice if the left column also scrolled down when you scroll down (to remove the need of having to go back to the top of the page to visit another section of the forums). However, these should be optional since both can probably slow down how fast the pages load (unless the unscaled images are too damn big).
