Copy-Paste-a from a topic in Gen Chat... I'll just leave it here :)

 

My only gripes which could well be getting worked on by the ones upstairs

 

  • The Right side of the forum, that void, just looks crap
  • The Respect counter under the avatars, I'm sure we did something similar to that years ago and it was abused to b*ggery
  • Replace that with Join Dates
  • Posts Per Page being 40 is a little too much, there doesn't seem to be a way to change it
  • The Inbuilt Spell Checker on Firefox doesn't work in the reply box, not too sure on other browsers, and I've seen other forums with this software with a spell checker addon for the reply box.  And I liked the spell checker, stopped me looking like a retard.
  • Ninja Edits, the time should be set at 1 minute like the old gaff.
  • People who've viewed your profile... I like to stalk incognito thank you very much. :ph34r:
  • Flags and medals, although the medals/karma will probably be getting reviewed, but I like my flag

However I do like some of the reply features

I like the layout, just cant find my Photo that someone created for me of the Vice City logon screen. I did a search with no luck :( a member made if for me here on the forums and even posted the links.

Personally, I think it was high time for a new update. While the old skin was slightly better, in my opinion, the update was much needed. It is something new and the forum is looking good, overall. Some things still need to be ironed out, but it has all been mentioned before in this very topic. By the way, it still takes a slightly longer time now to load a page; it was very fast before, but it slowed down ever since the black bar on the top of the page was added. GTAF is a lot more stable now, but loading pages takes more time compared to a few months ago.

I have a few suggestions:

 

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.

 

Try scrolling through the funny pic topic, it's dreadful

The Right side of the forum, that void, just looks crap

That can be solved easily via custom CSS:
#gtaf_rightColumn {
display: none !important;
}
And volia, it's gone :p

People who've viewed your profile... I like to stalk incognito thank you very much. :ph34r:

Can't you just simply log in anonymously then? There's such option when signing in. That'll solve the problem.

As said before, keep in mind that everything you see right now was done in about 12 hours. It is still a work in progress. The old forum was an accumulation of 10 years of work. Just give it some time and things will be added, fixed, changed, ect.

I always log in anonymously, but I've just checked your profile do I show in it?

 

EDIT: I've checked it by other means, it doesn't show :)

Nice new parts to the new design, new features and all. Could use some things from the old design too tough. I still cant understand which ones are the new posts or which ones are the old ones, have to see the dates when someone recently posted. Maybe new markers to the threads, so it would be more better to see which have new posts. Also, quotes. They should have a more distinctive box around them. Can't tell a difference between the quote and the text wrote.

Took me a while to spot this one, but on the forum list next to each post is either a dot or a star, the dot should take you to the last unread post, however it may take sometime for your browsing history to build up on this new forum so it may take you to page 1 or 2, but over time it will even out.  The Star is topics you've replied in and again it should take you to the last post read.  If the dot and the star background match the rest of the 'bar' then you've already read the last post and will just need to click the last page number.

That and even respect given anonymously stays anonymous.

That's supposed to be where the forum "rules" header was. Maybe it should be indeed at the top again?

My biggest problem with the forum at the moment, is the lack of spellcheck. Firefox spellcheck doesn't work, and I don't think the forum has any kind of spell check. This issue needs to be fixed!

The work is appreciated but i hate it

 

I'm aware this is WIP but navigation is more complex and slower

 

And no FF spell check support?

I don't know if this was pointed out allready, but I noticed the polls are not in a certain order. Would be great if it could go from highest votes to lowest.

Besides of that, I have nothing special to say. Just need some time to get used.

I don't hate this, but the old look was way better - I got used to it, and it felt like home. And if that's not enough, the forum now runs slower than before... that's never good. :(

As of right now I don't believe there is an icon on/near topics telling us if we made posts in it.

 

In the old layout it was displayed by an envelope(I think it was an envelope right? lol) with a black dot in the middle.

Topics you've replied in have stars next to them, topics you haven't have dots.

 

If the background to the star or dot blends in with the rest of the topic title then you've READ that topic, if it doesn't match and it's a dark background then you've NOT READ it

There is actually, a small star icon denotes topics you've replied in.

Awesome, thanks for explaining that. :^:

 

Perhaps they could make them different colors? Maybe the stars could be gold. :ph34r:

I noticed I have two warnings out of nowhere. They weren't there before. I would have been notified if I had received a warning. Both of them have no notes.

Yeah, that would make things a bit better. However, I think the post-count should not appear next to the username as it could encourage spamming. But the join date and the flag are two things I'd love to see returning.

Anything in your warn log has turned into a "warning", including commendations. It's not counted towards your warn points so you're fine.
