I don't like how the side bar is gone. That was how I navigated the forums since it felt like a quick click away. Now I have to go back and make like 2-3 clicks to get to the section :D

The small arrows to the left bring the side bar back.

I like it. It seems familiar and sleeker.

 

It could be a bit more familiar though, by adding flags, join dates and some kind of subtle background that resembles the old one.

Everything is to big and bland looking, and what are all these pop up menus for? I liked my old skin I was using to. I hope there is an option to change back to the older layout because this is to confusing and kind of ugly for me

I don't believe the .gif avatars are completely gone.

 

They just need to be under 100kb... but I haven't tried to use one so I wouldn't know.

Thanks for putting in the time and effort guys.

 

One thing I noticed - When browsing the "V" section and I click on "GTA Online" there is no link to go back to "GTA V" up top, i.e. GTA Forums >>  GTA V >>  News, like there used to be, it only leads back to "Multiplayer".

I honestly hate this new layout, if there was a way to have it an option to switch back to the old layout. That would be awesome

Guess I'll need a bit until I can... get it in my head.

I'm still not a fan of the IPB and I also think tablets are looking awful. At least the one I've seen like the in Screenshot fun thread

or in my German learning thread.

 

Anyway, otherways, Admins (and mods and all others) made a great job here. :^:

 

Edit: the new write box may have no more BB-Tags but it's more complicated imo.

Exspcially because it doesn't safe colors... or sometimes it does. And then I can change it :/

This is what annoys me right now.

They seriously need to improve the avatar system. Seriously that is stupid. We have Graven, GunWrath and others making these wonderful gif avatars and yet they're "too big" to use. -____- I still can't use my avatar:

Just resize it...that's what I did with mine.

Something missing from the Respect+ button, it needs to make this sound when you press it:

Suggestions:

 

1. Bring back a way to use the classic layout. Optimize the banner for classic layout to have GTAV stuff in it.

 

2. For the new layout, change the blues back to the old layouts dark blue color.

 

3. Change the font style for the way threads look. It's very unpleasing on the eyes and makes it hard to read. You can also consider giving us an option to switch through various layouts and color schemes, along with font styles.

 

4. The layout doesn't fit the browser size. I have my browser, for example, in window mode and it only takes up half my screen. The GTAForums logo on the top doesn't fit to that size, it only shows me the full logo if I put my browser in fullscreen mode. I think you need to fix that.

Oh no no... I mean tablets like them: http://gtaforums.com...entry1062931156

If you scroll a bit down you can see it... it's look awful.

ok now that I've had some time to look around a little more...

 

there's no Joined Date next to anyone's name.

I kinda liked knowing when someone joined at a glance.

 

  • Respect number should be made smaller
  • Joined Date should be added
  • avatars should allow for transparency like signatures
  • avatars should allow for GIF's (within a certain size limit)
  • signature limits should be a little smaller; instead of 500 x 150 the limit should be something like 600 x 100
  • default posts per page should be 20 or 30; 50 posts per page is too many

don't get me wrong. most of the changes are nice.

but some of the changes feel like a step backwards, not forwards.

For computer i'm pretty much used to it, but getting used to it on my phone will take a lot longer.
What do the stars on our profile mean?

They're still making adjustments to the website, just wait a few weeks.

If you go on a member name... a little window will pop up. Then you can see it.

Don't make Xx100 ... that's too less for a signature mate.

GIF's would be cool for that ass bounce thing xD

Respect number should be removed... me no got respected :(

Loving it actually! Was a surprise to wake up to this new layout after being used to the old one for so many years.

 

One thing I miss though is the flags under the avatars, kind of removes your identity like that. Will it be implemented again?

All in all I like it, so far.

I will say the right side of my screen on my laptop seems like wasted space. I think text boxes should format a little wider on PC for 16x9 screen ratio.

 

Great on smart phone though, bit too vertical the layout on PC. Be more efficient if the forum had better fit to screen properties.

 

That's my two cents.

 

And firefox spell check doesn't work here. I could see that being a big issue for some.
