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. :)

 

 

(my reply to the person above) (typing this because the quote didn't seem to work)

 

you can collapse and open the sidebar same sidebar as the old layout notice the 3 arrows (<<<)

 

Thanks for the notification. :)

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?

Yeah, I have this problem with spell check as well. I really hope they fix that.

Can't say I like it, it just doesn't even feel like the same site. Please add a skin option for the old version (or at least something with a similar color scheme).

This really isn't all that much of an upgrade or improvement.

 

It looks tacky, pain in the ass to navigate and it's inconvienant all around whiles trying to browse sections. Sure the forums itself were in need of an update but this is in the complete opposite direction as to where it should be. The previous forums were nice, solid layout, nice to view and easy to navigate. This... this is unappealing.

Spoiler

 

Its the same

[spoiler]Spoiler[/spoiler]

 

I totally forgot about the BBcode way. But there used to be a thing at the top, similar to making your text bold or italic. Is there still a shortcut like that? Or do we have to enter the code manually?

 

Edit: Just seen Raavi's post. 

 

Edit 2: wtf is going on with the white sh*t

Maybe also re-add borders to people's posting boxes. Like the old version. That white line that went around the whole thing.

It'd be awesome if the author of a topic could rename it and also be able to add people who can edit the first post.

For those of you criticising the new layout, please keep in mind that this JUST got updated not too long ago. This will most likely get updated as time progresses just as so many other things do.

This is horrible. GTAForums maintained a real classy and original interface for several years and now we're left with a monotonous type of interface that threw all of its attention onto GTA V rather than the entire GTA series as a whole. Everything looks so bland now. There's no depth to this. And now there's a respect system? We're here to discuss sh*t, not dwindle ourselves into a competition for respect by creating an e-persona that sticks out triumphant and pretentious. Who cares about each other profiles? This is a forum, a hub for constructive discussion; not facebook where we overlook our attention to build up our profile rather than actually socializing, which really is the whole intent of making a facebook.

I miss being on a site where the entire GTA series revolved around it. Now we're all about GTA V. Marrone, this is starting to become like the GTA place..

They didn't removed the posts. They increased the amount of replies for one page.

Look at this, it takes ages to scroll down.
