I see the join date was added back under the avatar area.

 

Didn't even notice until you pointed it out. I see some people would like the flags back and i cant say that i miss them as its something i never really payed attention to before. However if they were to return then that would be fine aswell.

 

I don't really see the point in flags, some users didn't even display their country flag before. Also, you can just look at someones profile to see their location.

 

 

Yeah i agree, i dont really care if the flags return. Some people didn't even use the flag from the country they were from as they didn't want people knowing what country they lived in or they liked the look of a different flag so they used that etc. You have to remember though that not everyone updates there profile to say were they are from, so looking at peoples profiles doesn't always tell you either.

 

Well, to be honest, I don't really know why the Location of a member matters to others either. But anyway, like I said, I couldn't care less whether the feature returned

Can they fix the reply system?

Nearly every time I write something on laptop and iPad, it doesn't send!

Plus, I can't see emoticons on iPad.

I like the new layout but I don't like that the banner is all V, this is GTAForums not GTAVForums so I think the banner should be the same as it used to be with V fit in somewhere, I also hate the new logo and the 3 protags behind it. All the rest is good though :3

Things are getting more familiar everyday. Now, if only there was a way to at least "turn off" respect if it's not going to be removed.

On the mobile version, can we get a link / button at the bottom of a topic that takes us back to the forum the topic is in? I understand i can press back on my phone but that doesnt refresh the forum, i dont think.

Also, i cant find next/last page links in topics. Dont the next/prev links refer to topics?

Everything just seems so familiar.

Well, both are running off IP.Board so the similarity should be expected.

Ugly site.  It now looks like someone let the 90's in and it crapped all over the living room.  Oh well!

Just burn the forums down, blame it on Ryan, and use the insurance money to make a whole new forum software. You didn't hear it from me... :ph34r:

I've also noticed you cannot view banned members profiles, that's pretty cool I guess.

Yep, thank god. Updates are coming, and making the site better. There are just a few things that need to be fixed, and the site should be fine, IMO.

This is such a downgrade from the old site it's unbelievable.
There was always talk of all new features being added with a new version of the forums and this actually has less.  :panic:

Right. So the 'respect' numbers are now hidden, join date's back below avatar, and spell check's working. 

 

Cool, but don't forget these suggestions though:

 

 

Can the black bar up top follow as we scroll up/down? So it'd be easy to see notifications and access our settings. 

 

Maybe add shortcuts to 'book marked' topics as well on the black bar.

 

Oh and make the notifications update in real-time, that'd be great.

 

and to add, the sidebar should follow us up/down as well. Eliminates the need to scroll up, or just make the pages go back to 20 posts per page.

 

edit: Whoops, just realized if you click the arrow on the left, it takes you to the top :p

I have Firefox and spelling check still isn't working.

Not sure how the overall progress is going, but an announcement regarding Tables would be nice.

In what way does this upgrade have less features? There's a few things that need sorting/fixing, but this upgrade adds a decade's worth of updates & modern features to this board.

It still requires some tweaking, but [table] tags should work now.  No [tableb], just [table].

Nice work on the updates. The only other real suggestions I want to make are:

 

* Change the "Like This" graphic to suit the default skin

* Give the emoticons a separate box so you don't need to the "show all" or scroll through them

* Bring the pips/flags back

 

I'm getting used to the new look though. :^:

Yup, this upgrade did add a lot more features, good and bad ones lol.

But one feature I miss, is member photos. Yeah there is a thread for that in gen chat, but it was nice seeing some photos in profiles (I'm weird), even though not a lot of people used this feature.

I guess I should just use my photo as my avatar maybe?

Anywho, I'm used to this new layout now, and I like most of the new features.

Just struggling with the compatibility for my phone, because a lot of stuff don't work or even show up...
