New format looks great. Much better UI, a lot easier to see what's what.

People will have some trouble getting used to it if they've been using the forums for a while and are used to the old format, but I give you my hardy approval as a professional graphic designer!

What about the old forums were "classy"? The new one is SO much simpler and cleaner looking.

Ok reading through alot of the older post (a day ago and back further) I'm realizing that when you qutoe some one its hard 

to pick up who said what in what quote. Like the topic where zzcool is whining (I mean bringing up a interesting point about pc

gamers and the hatred that he believes they get....calm down zz, just being funny) there is a lot of quotes that are double and 

even triple quotes and its hard to follow. 

 

But the big block format is a little easier to read after a while. But the join date and the medals is something that I already miss.  :*(

Did like 3 or 4 pages just get deleted from this thread? Or am I going crazy?

All of the comments are still here, but the number of posts per page has been doubled to 40.

 

And I hope you like my 6000th post.

Here are my suggestions for future updates:

  • spelling check
  • a tweeked searching system similar to the previous one
  • maybe a few different types of forum skins
  • post boarders
  • change the avatars back to the way they were
  • show join date so we can identify trolls
  • bring back the medals
  • bring back polls.

I really hate that there is no spelling check. I mean what if I make a whole bunch of errors, now I can't correct them. That said I like how you can update the comments without having to reload the page and how you can hover your mouse over a profile and see everything. I love how that annoying "Posts per day" crap was deleted so there would be no more of that "You post too much drama". A few more suggestions:

- just get rid of post count

- add time of last post.

Hey folks,

 

Just wanted to let you know that we are reading all of your feedback, and we are making ongoing changes/updates to what you see right now.

 

Keep in mind that the last version of GTAF was heavily customized over 10+ years. Some of those customizations couldn't be easily ported over. Like you, we're also getting used to the new software and figuring out how different features work.

 

Today's big move was to get the "heavy stuff" taken care of. Many millions of posts and hundreds of thousands of users are a difficult thing to shift around with limited manpower. :) Especially when you're upgrading software that hasn't been touched in a decade.

 

We chose to make the move today because we didn't want to throw people off once GTAV was launched. Now that the messiest part of the move is behind us, we can focus on fixing bugs and making improvements bit-by-bit.

 

Keep the feedback coming. Thanks!

Options to change the skin back to the old one

Yeah, agreed. I wish they could bring back the old look as option.

The topic title font is kind of hard to read. It is okay for singular things with a larger size, like "Reply to this topic". But on the lists of topic titles, where the font size is smaller and there is much more text close together, it gets difficult to read.

  • bring back polls.

Polls are in, they're just incorporated into the new topic wizard. If not, wait for them to be enabled I guess?

Much respect to the Admins. Thanks for reading our feedback. It takes patience to make something great. Rome wasn't built in a day...

It feels like a totally different forum now.

 

Is there any guesstimate of what features may or may not make it over?

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..

You get my respect for that post sir.

 

I like a few of the improvements, like the new quote system, but this respect points thing is just going to create a bunch of ego-maniacs.....and there's already plenty of them here.

Can't say I am a fan of the update, but I suppose I'll get used to it. Kinda sad that I lost my well deserved medal though.

As much as I appreciate the mods took to change up the site, if I must be honest, I'm not a huge fan of the new interface.

 

It's really plain, the text is kind of annoying, I don't like the location of the countdown clock, and plus, no more .gifs? That will kill the hilariousness of the community. Quoting people also looks strange.

 

Oh well, only 10 more days :)
