Welcome to the new GTAForums. We hope you all like the look. If you have any suggestions or comments, feel free to post them here.

Complaints about missing features or bugs with the new version -

We're working on it. The big focus today, in which Adam and Tank were busting their ass, was to get the core stuff migrated to the new software. Aesthetic changes and fixes will come.

Keep in mind that we've been running a heavily customized version of IPB 1.3 for the last 10+ years... some of those customizations couldn't make the jump.

To put it another way, we just bought a new pair of shoes and still need to break em in.

It's looking neat, guys (and Kirsty), and the new features are very useful too. Nice work you did here.

 

But it's not completely finished yet, right?

It looks good. Hopefully some of the old themes are brought back.

It's going to take me a while to wrap my head around it but it looks pretty nifty.

Maybe too many big shiny graphics... but let's have some fun with it!

 

Is there a guide for the new stuff, IE: respect system?

I feel lost, maybe it's because It's so new. Well, It looks nice, and it has a lot of features that everyone was asking for. Looks great, but confusing.

It's a little bland but overall I guess it's good. Just will take some getting used to, I reckon.

 

As of right now I prefer the old one but as I said, I am sure this is just something that takes some getting used to. Kind of miss how the countdown banner and other such things were at the top of the V section whereas now it's at the side.

 

Also how it used to show someone's join date and other relevant info under their profile picture.

Not bad, options are more simple, the style may take some getting used to, I noticed that previous BBCode on topics isn't working yet, which I'm sure you guys are still playing around with things. Also, yellow links, not a fan of that.. but overall, I'm pleased with it. Not a big big fan of these newer versions but you can't be too upset, from what we had to what we have now.

 

Good job, Admins, Mods and all who've helped. :^:

Sorry, this sucks. Everything is too big, hard to find link. Slow and clunky, especially in mobile devices. Bring back the old layout!

Love the new look, Much more responsive and clean. If I could change one thing though it would be the colors.

You know,I love the idea of a forum update but usually those are supposed to be an upgrade. This was a downgrade to a less nice forum and in my opinion its pretty trashy...

Buuuuttt that doesn't mean its not good and with a little improvement I think it could turn out to be pretty nice

For twelve years, this forum was a living, breathing forums full of originality and an entirely unique feel to it. Today, 9/5/13, is the day this forum begins to die. Why does this forum have to die like everything else has this year? Why did this forum have to follow the "2013 uncreative and overly sized" look. The people who worked on this had one job. One simple, easy job. And that was to keep everything original and unique without killing the experience while allowing newbies and veterans to get around easily. But no. That isn't the case here. What the new GUI is simply put, garbage. Let me explain this;

 

The colors on this site are awful. Everything is extremely bland.  They've changed the site from something that flashed every GTA at you, to something that shoves V down your throat. V isn't the best game ever, nor will it ever be. GTA as a SERIES should be honored, not some flushed out new game that could possibly be the biggest waste of $60.

 

Why? Why did you have to kill the experience? It it really worth it to kill what made the forum something special?

 

This forum has been needing an update, but nothing like this. Sometimes you have to cut off a finger to save the hand, but they cut off the whole arm.

The number below the username is how many "respects" the member has received, right?

 

Edit: yeh, nevermind. It really is.

I might agree but I still like this new look. I'm confused as to where to Announcements section is and where the search function is. I feel stupid. :blush:

It is not so bad actually, but I hope we will be able to use one of the past forum layouts as a theme for this very forum - sometime, later on? Say, is GTAForums still updating? Curious, hah.

The chosen font for the thread titles looks blocky and hard to read.
