Here are my suggestions for future updates:

  • spelling check (Yes)
  • a tweeked searching system similar to the previous one(Yes)
  • maybe a few different types of forum skins(Going to happen)
  • post boarders(Ok)
  • change the avatars back to the way they were(Whats wrong with them)
  • show join date so we can identify trolls (Pretty meh about it)
  • bring back the medals (Respect replaces medals, it seems)
  • bring back polls. (Are already back, I believe)

 

- just get rid of post count (Why? Do you feel insecure about your epenis?)

- add time of last post.(Sure why not)

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 :)

HiddenStreet, you must understand that they only got the Essential things transferred. They will be rolling out new updates as time passes :)

I think something they could add is to allow people to see who Respected their post.

 

I got a notification when someone gave me respect.

I like the new forums overall.

 

it's going to take a little while to get used to LOOKING at it.

feels like it's hard to read things after looking at the same font and colors for so long :lol:

 

otherwise a very nice update, feature-wise.

i'd like if the top control panel could follow you as you scroll so you don't have to scroll all the way up to access notification

 

so the two buttons could follow you

Thats going to deter people from making spam topics because now people are going want to make that big number to the left increase to pad their ego

That's smart. Reward people for making appropriate topics and not replying like a dumbass.

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!

For those of you that are still a little skeptic on the new update.

I feel a return of pips, join dates and flags and the removal of the respect system would do a lot to make me feel at home. It may be unusual but I navigated topics by scanning join dates and flag, I'd be able to recognise posters I respected and wished to read quickly this way.

Aside from the these and other visual issues which others have gone into,I am seeing a noticeable improvement in performance on my iPad which is welcome.

I just want GTAF to retain the character which set it apart from other forums. I'm not sure what it was but you'd be hard pressed to find any forum on the Internet with such a large, varied, active and loyal user base as this. More than any other site I can think of this forum has a culture of discussion and community which has kept me coming back for over 6 years and others for much longer. Part of this was thanks to the unique aesthetic, on the new mechanics we are in danger of losing the edge and becoming too similar to a myriad of other forums we sign up to and neglect.

The avatar system doesn't allow real big images. The old system would take a large image(Ex: 900x620) and then crop it down to fit inside the space. It keeps saying 100kb limit which is way too small.

 

Edit: I seemed to have mastered the system. Seems fine now. :beerhat:

actually I have one complaint.

 

the Respect number is weird.

it's a large number under the poster's name and avatar which makes it seem like a postcount or something. so most people show a big fat ZERO. it's actually kind of distracting.

 

also the 'User Group' is listed right below the Respect number.

and since most people are in Members, everyone's going to look like their user bar says "ZERO MEMBERS"

 

that should be changed.

Yes. I've used this for at least three or four years. I hope they can find a way to customize the new interface to have this feature.

First of all, how about creating a username that doesn't contain a spoiler? Or at least wait until the game has released before posting.

Use the PgUp PgDn keys, then. 

 

I like the new design. It provides some polish and the respect+ feature is cool. My only gripe is that transparency isn't working in my avatar. Otherwise, nice work!
