Quoting does need to be fixed, since it's not that great. Respect system is fine, nothing to get your knickers in a twist.

 

:orly: says the guy with 108 respect

now we can start a race for 2nd place I guess...

and if it's gta_stu

well then f*ck this place

 

I don't see what my respect number has to do with my opinion. If I had only 1 respect point, I would feel the same way.(ie the respect sytem is fine) Plus I don't have the most, one of the Yardies does. Hell they claim the top 3 or 4 spots!

 

I have only 2 respect points, but I like the respect-system.

 

I have 13 (bad luck number) :p

 

Anyway, I found a temporary replacement for ME tags

The only thing I don't like about the new layout is that it doesn't have that sentimental GTAF feel to it, sentimentality has no place on the internet though so  :colgate:

At least create skins that look like the old ones.

Everything is very narrow. Perhaps making the font size smaller would help. I also dislike the respect system.

I didn't like it at first, but now it's starting to grow on me. The GIF avatars not showing up is a problem, but they might fix it and other than that the new layout doesn't really have any problems that I've seen.

I have to agree. The respect system is a joke. If we're gonna rank users in any way, then use a post rank. I'd rather have spammers than respect spammers who just trade respects after every post their buddy makes. It's absurd that GTAF would only display post count on the users profile due to fear of spam and then just allow a system where anyone can simply click a button to reward another user. A staff-led Karma system would be my solution.

 

As for the new "Reply" menu. I really enjoy it... it's easy to just press Control+B for Bold, Ctrl + U to underline and etc.

Skins as far as I am aware are being worked on. But there are other things that are more important that still need to be done.

Are you telling me that post spammers are better than respect spammers? At least respect spamming just stays as a number, instead of affecting the rest of the forum, unlike post spamming.

The mobile version sucks!a lot of options are gone. And the desktop version is slower then slowpoke. I really hope they fix this. I always use my phone and with the old version i got no problem at all.

Exactly my thoughts :^:

I'm used to the new layout by now, but the site is really slow on my phone. And I don't use the mobile version because of all the missing features. On my pc though, I have zero problems at all :) But, yeah, I almost always use my phone... Hopefully it will get better...

The layout is completely awful.

 

If I want to go to Gaming Chat from here I can't, unless taking a major detour which takes more than three clicks!?!?!?

 

Also, commands which are typed out like IMG rather than an image of an image is much easier to work with. Always disliked other forums with this layout for making posts.

Things are being added all the time. It wont happen over night.

In time it will be much similar to the old lay out, its just a question of getting it all in place.

I keep the left navigation panel open.  It takes the same amount of clicks to get from forum to forum then.

I like giving people respect. If a post makes me smile or laugh or even just impresses me through its eloquence, I like to be able to give that person a thumbs up.

Now, obviously, if you've got people abusing that system and acting as if it actually means something more than a trifling little number, that's an issue - but at its core, I think it's a good way to show appreciation of decent posts.

Pretty much this. While respect systems aren't inherently childish, I think the new system just feeds the common misconception around here that join date=respect.
 
Things I love...
- kept the dark skin (easy on long-term eye health)
- cleaner layout
- user friendly once the side dashboard is enabled.
- MultiQuote feature

- re-added the join date feature
 
Questions...
- How do we know if a topic has been replied in since we've posted?
- How do we know which topics we've posted in?

Questions...

- How do we know if a topic has been replied in since we've posted?

- How do we know which topics we've posted in?

 

Well I find the notifcations and email notifcations frankly crap compared to the old board, as it spams your email as you get a notification of every single post which isn't nice and every topic gets it's own email and it quotes the post in the email, I've only got notifications for PM's and Respect points. 

 

The best thing I find is if you open up the My Content section (click on your username at the top to find it) it lists all the topics you've posted in if you have the optons set as By Content Type  >  Forums, and See this member's > Topics and posts, and then set it to Sort by "Last update time".

 

If there is a new reply to the topic you've posted in then the topic will have a darker band down the left side, if you've read that topic the whole topic bar will be smooth.  Then you just need to click on the Star to open up that topic at the last unread post (note if you've not read the topic since the update then it may take you to page 1 or 2, but this will correct itself going forward).  I personally find that 'middle clicking' so you open it up a new tab works and just keep that My Contents page open all the time, once you've opened up each topic then just click on "Topics and Posts" on the left to refresh the page

Something resembling medals/awards will be put in place at some stage.

 

The old forum was about to rip apart, it would not have stood September 17th. Lets get the release out of the way first, let it settle down and then the Network nerds can start making this place home again.

Since the new layout is still bugging a number of people, I've come up with a pretty full-proof course of action that should suit everyone.

We burn the forums down for the insurance money, but blame it on Ryan, claiming he went mad after moderating the V section for so long. Social services will then arrive to take the kids from V section to a safe, foster home. Once the insurance cheque clears, we buy the raw materials needed to rebuild the site and work together just like in the days of yore.

 

Then, we spend the remainder of our days drinking cocktails and smoking cigars on the porch, watching the sunset.

@OchyGTA - The plan has to work, I'd happily join you organize it ;)

@Waddy - It's nice to hear about a feature similar to the medals coming in at one point.
