I haven't read through the past 30 pages, but has anyone asked if there's a way to go back to the old design? Sort of like a skin or something?

I don't like the new update because i can't look someone medal.

What do you mean?
 
When you say "medal" assuming you're talking about the medals we had before GTAForums was upgraded to the latest IP.Board version we had medals on the old skin and on v1.3...though if that's true then you'd be a PBM if I'm not quite mistaken... This assumption is directly from looking at when you joined. (4 days ago)...

Just because someone knows about the old board doesn't make them a PBM, he could of just lurked ;)

But yeah the medals are gone ever since the switch but there's always a chance Tank could bring them back once the main stuff is done :^:

Yes a few people. It is believed some skin may be produced like that in the future.

If you're on Firefox, you can try installing an add-on called Stylish and then installing this theme. It's the closest thing to classic you're going to get. However, I've noticed some oddities with it, like the background spazzing out on long threads.

There's quite a few things left to do, but more skins is definitely on the list.

At first I wasn't fond of the new design although I've gotten used to it now and I quite like it now.

Yeah, it'll be better when additional skins have been made/implemented.

^ Halloween's long gone but I would like to see things like this implemented after the regression bugs are sorted out that have risen due to the upgrade. 

 

Would love to see the old search function back but I understand it'll take a while before Tank re-implements the old custom features.

I know I'm late here, but I've taken some time to get used to it, and I still really dislike this update.  It's too clunky and big, as others have noticed, and I agree that it feels as if V is being shoved down our throats.

 

Where did the medals go?  They were a unique flare around these forums. Are we just binning that completely?

 

The banner does look nice, nonetheless.

I do agree with Panz regarding the medals. I'm sure there's a similar method to award members for their contributions after the update.

While I would love to see the medal system return, it's still not long after the forum update and it's better to do one thing at a time and make sure we are all having an enjoyable experience first.

 

With that said, are the GTAForums Awards 2013 going to be delayed, or are winners going to be awarded differently?

It takes more steps to see new replies to your subscribed topics now. I don't know if email notifications still work (I stopped doing those years ago after getting over 1000 of them), but the list on the left sidebar under all the forums is gone, and for some reason I very rarely get notifications in the top right. Not sure why this is. In general I have to manually visit the forum or topic to see new replies on subscribed threads. Not that annoying, but one removed convenience that doesn't seem to have been talked about.

I finally found how to use the new forums color codes!

 

Still having problems with the search function, half of the time I don't seem to be getting any results. Are the admins are working on it?

I don't know if this is because I'm on Google Chrome or a Mac (laughter ensues) or what, but half the time, I can't even get a typing cursor on the search bar. It just remains the regular pointed mouse cursor until I get a tiny little sweet spot in the white bar.  Otherwise, I can't even use the search function.

Working here on Chrome and Linux Mint. Not going to blame the Mac here, but I'm gonna ask if it works on Safari?

The search bar is working fine here. It doesn't seem to work properly on the 'GTAForums Holidays 2013' skin, due to the moving snow in the background, but it works flawlessly on the regular one. If there problems with the search bar on the top of the page, try to switch skins and/or click on the gear to use the Advanced Search.

I didn't like the new search function in the beginning, either, but it works as good as the old one now, in my opinion. Perhaps, try to use more accurate keywords. What do you want to search for, for example?

Well I want to search for a topic in WD, and I know the exact name, yet it does not display any results. If I separate it, it says the query doesn't match or something. I'm using the normal skin on Windows 8 in Chrome.

Here an example:

 

If i want to search for this specific thread: http://gtaforums.com...ting-vancouver/

 

I would input this:

• Insert title

• Select "All words"

• Select "Search only in titles"

• Select Writers' Discussion in the Find in Forum tab

 

Hit search and you should get the thread you were searching for.

Searching for topics with the search bar is a little tricky, because it searches for posts and topics that contain the keywords you're looking for. I advice you to use the advanced search function, as described above by Raavi, if you want to look for a specific topic.

Andreas, I'm not using the holiday skin.

This is what happens. I'll move my cursor all over that search bar, and a textbox type cursor just won't appear half the time. Sometimes it does, but only if I move my cursor to particular spots. It's pretty odd. Obviously it's not a skin or a Chrome problem, so I have no idea what's going on with it.
