I have a few suggestions:

 

1: Display post count instead of the respect when viewing topics. If possible, remove the respect fully in the coming days, or find a workaround of it, because, it's already massively abused...It's gonna get real bad soon once everyone gets used to the V2.

2: Is it possible to revert to the old posts per page number, of 20 posts per page, rather then 50 posts per page as it was now? I'm fine it stays this way, but just asking, it would be nicer. And it take sa while to scroll through pages.

3: Announcements forum? Where. Also, if possible, move "The Network" above GTA V section, or make a separate "announcements" sub-forum above the V section, so everyone can be up to date with frequent changes that are going to be now.

I agree with your first point. Respect or like tend to be used to respect or like someone with the same opinion as yours. It doesn't really increase respectful posts. I can also see trolls massively abuse the system just to appear more legit. I can live with the feature though because it could have been worse, a disrespect or unlike button.

 

Your second point is a good idea as an option. I find it easier to browse the threads now on a tablet or phone.

 

I like the new lay-out. The previous lay-out just look rather outdated to my taste. I have no issues reading the quotes either. The text is also more visible on my iPod without being forced to zoom in all the time. And even if I do zoom in it as not blurry. Not sure why it is for some (read one comment in the thread about this).

 

One thing I do dislike is how it is harder to use spoiler tags. I know how to use it but the way it is now is an extra barrier for some forum members. If you can immediately see the option more people will actually use it if it is needed.

Where are the flags? Medals? Why have all of our pictures been reset? The top images looks great but besides that it's just too sterile and generic...

Also what do the numbers under the username mean? Members? Members of what  :panic:

The numbers under your username means your "respect", or "reputation" in the forums.

Now we're starting to see signatures like this:

 

"Hit that "Respect+" button if you thought I was helpful or made you LOL!"

 

It's like the karma system all over again. :lol:

Yes, great work. Honestly I kind of like this better than the old forums. Well the older style. This seems more updated and new, and just feels better.

Great job guys!

First of all, how about creating a username that doesn't contain a spoiler? Or at least wait until the game has released before posting.

If his username contains a spoiler, then you just made me know this. Not he.

 

OT: Old layout > new one.

Please! Please....!

 

Update the font (it's stretched... this is a forum, text/legibility is the main focus).

 

Also remove the glow effect, or at least make it less notorious.

 

We use the forums to read, at least make sure we can read good, stretched fonts are good for headers not for large amounts of text (like the topic's name..one after another).

 

Also, the topic's name (when browsing main forum areas) is too big, before, the topic's list included a lot of topics and it was easy to browse. Now the topics list includes only a few since each topic uses much more height.

 

On mobile... it's completely ok, (at least on the tablet).

It seems that posts per page number is now 30 instead of 50. It would still be nicer if it ends up 20 like it used to be.

Finally GTAF V2, I never thought I would live to see this day :panic: .  Alas I have to confess I am not a big fan of it.  Original GTAF felt special, this new makeover just makes the place look and feel generic.  I should also add that this new design makes it even worse to browse on mobile platforms.

I wouldn't say the makeover looks generic per say. I'd say it looks a lot cleaner. Everyone is entittled to their opinion though.

Yeah I cringed massively at that. It's one of the reasons I stopped using BB Misc, just repwhoring all the time (even if was on 6k). 

 

Couple things I wanted to point out. The site seems to flicker when scrolling, does anyone else get this? I don't know if it's because I'm using Safari on a Mac and it may not be optimised for that.

 

Also, do you get notifications when someone quotes you? I guess I'm about to find out the answer to that one...

It's a respect module. People can give you respect

The old forum looked like it was from the 90's. It almost prevented me from even joining up here.

 

This new look is probably the best looking forum I've ever been on.

Apparently not. I got quoted a few times already and no notification. But for respect I got one.

Agreed, add a post count to it as well and it'll be perfect, instead of the respect thing thats already very abused by many.

If you could bring back post number per page back to what it was as well as remove this respect system, that'd be great.

 

Respect this post if you agree.

What he said. I really don't see the point in a respect system seeing as we have a place in our profile for people we respect.
