Will we need a certain amount of posts for name changes?

Nice. Are we going to get Tapatalk mobile support too while we're at it?

This version of IPB Supports an inbuilt Mobile Version. Find the link below online list.

Hopefully there's an option to revert to the old layout.  If not, I'll leave the forums after GTA 5 comes out.

 

Also its annoying that I cant use my old avatar because its too big.

I can't handle the update it's horrible! As a few people have said before this place is like my online home. It feels like someone has come round to my house when I was at work and redecorated and said "Oh yeah, forgot to tell you, but we've redecorated your house for you, I hope you like it!"
Cue the overreacting comments, but I honestly have a passion for this forum and GTA. I get attached to inanimate objects, like properly attached. I have a bus ticket from my mum's birthday from about 10 years ago, I have a Phillips head screw, with a little bit of paint on the tip, and it's been in my draw since I was a kid. If I lost either if these or any of the many other items I have sentimental value with I would be distraught. This almost feels like I've had one of my favourite things, my luxuries in life, not taken away but changed. Like when your favourite pub closes down, and re-opens all done up with a fresh lick of paint, new colours, and new staff. Yeah, it's not a dingy pub anymore, but it was my pub. I'm off to the GTA Base forums I think, if it picks up.

Old one better. Just my personal opinion.

 

Here is why:

 

I use to be able to browse the forum with shortcut methods. For example, if I was in the GTA IV forum reading a thread, I can quickly go to the GTA V news section in one click of a button because there is a side bar with all the subcategories to select from. This one, you can't do this. I always have to go back to GTAforums home, then proceed to the subforums that I want to visit.

 

Just my two cents. :)

When looking at a topic, older posts now say last post 2 weeks ago etc. It should go back to the old style where it says the exact date and time. Example:  Tue Sep. 17th 14:32

 

Another thing like others have mentioned is on the right side there is a lot of wasted space. Perhaps expand everyone's posting/reply boxes all the way to the right side. I think it would make things more "concrete looking" if that makes sense.

I'd like to make a suggestion for a new Special BBCode to be added. And Expand/Collapse option. 
I made the suggestion before: Expand/Collapse Option

Couple of things that bother me:

 

- The side-bar on the right of the screen. Please make this collapse-able like the one on the left.

- Posts having a minimum height leaving tons of blank space.

- The unnecessary clutter in the user boxes next to posts. Member groups should be hidden on default except for Mods or Admins. Also, please add options to hide avatars/custom titles/reputation.

 

I don't like all of the social media "Share" options at the bottom of the pages either, but I don't think that's going to be changed.

Still, there is something nice about being able to manage all your forums with one native app.

Should be two little arrows to collapse it.

Heh, I suppose I'm challenged when it comes to learning new things, but I can't seem to find these arrows. Where are they exactly?

ummm....ok....this is not bad.

 

Its a little unique. Don't really understand the number under the avatar thing. I think its respect. 

I would just want the date when you joined under the avatar, but I have a reason why that will never

come back. 

 

Overall it looks nice....weird but nice..

For everybody that's asking - You can still quickly go between sub-forums, just show that ">>" button to the lefthand side of the interface some love.

Yeah they have it for the left one. But there's a sidebar on the right side of the screen that's taking up space as well. It would be nice if that could be made collapsable as well.

Agreed. This to spot the troll in V section lol.

 

Too bad, those member names are actually "hard" to find. You know what I mean, it's just, I had 2 seconds delay to find the username.

One thing you guys need to realise before complaining at the admins is most of the features are already in the software. They were not added by the staff, stuff like the respect system and the twitter-like statuses are part of it.

Oh, I thought you were talking about right side.


Anybody else on the mobile site? Everytime I zoom in everything gets blurry. Anybody else having this problem?

The old one was...2000s like.

That was part of the charm. Most websites have gone to this style years ago. And in doing so, they got more bland.

 

Not saying this site design is bland, but the charm of the older one is gone now. But then again, I doubt this is going to be the final product.

 

Also it doesn't seem that spell check works anymore. Can guys make sure to fix that?

Meh I would have waited to update the site until after GTA V and GTA Online was released. Then I would be gone and many others so there would be less problems.

Click on the symbol next to the eraser symbol, you get a little special BB code pop-up, click 'please select' and you'll be able to add, among many codes, spoiler tags.

 

Or just use [spoiler1]...[/spoiler1] minus the 1
