There is a side bar. It's just hidden initially.

Click on the arrow I have circled, it should be fairly easy to find. 

 

Interesting, everything is now brutally squished though. I amend my recommendation to "get rid of all that room on the right"

Took me a little while to find out where the side bar was heh. I don't understand the whole respect thing, its not a big deal though. Just one of the things that comes along with a new package. I do like the new area for replying to a topic though.

I concur, the empty space on the right can better be used to stretch the width of posts.

Yes, that's what I'd like to see done. The right side has no purpose. They just need to extend the post boxes all the way to the right and it will look better. I agree that everything looks squished. Everything also kind of feels IN YOUR FACE atm if that makes sense.

Meh, as usual nothing that can't be fixed with some custom css.

 

Good call on the update otherwise, 'twas high time methinks.

 ^ This is what takes up the unnecessary space. I still don't get why we need that to be honest. We already have the bar at the top which links us to gtav.net so I don't see what purpose it serves.

I agree. There's a lot of empty room on the right side. It doesn't look good.

Maybe more ads will show up? GTAF going commercial?

 

Nah, I think they might have reserved it for new modules.

Newer members did not witness the amount of work that was put into the old forums. All the hacks and tweaks are certainly incompatible with the new software. This is a blank slate. And although the relationship between staff, the higher ups, and the user base has changed a lot these past few years — I won't comment on that — I'm sure that we'll see a great amount of quirks, old and new, arrive. It gives us something to look forward to, as a community.

All that banner ad type stuff should stay at the top of the page like the old layout. Hopefully in due time...

What is the deal with the "Respect" button?

You find a topic/reply you like and then you click the "Respect" button instead of making a 'Good Show' reply? Then in your Profile under the Respect Tab all of the Topic/Replies you "Respected" are listed for everyone (who looks) to see and have a good laugh at them... ?

It's a way for people to show just how big their virtual penis is.

Yup, and then posting gifs or pictures is punished because they don't add discussion or point to the thread...

There's something else I don't like, why are all the pictures at the top of GTA V?

It looks like they're putting in more updates as we go along. It looks like some contrast has been added on posts and the avatars have transparency now.

Did they take away the option to add a profile photo like before? Or am I missing something?

No, it's still there. You have to go to your profile and on the upper left of your picture there's a "Change" tab. Another thing that should be changed.

And the last post on the old forums was made by...

 

:)

 

You're Welcome

 

 

My only gripes which could well be getting worked on by the ones upstairs

 

  • The Right side of the forum, that void, just looks crap
  • The Respect counter under the avatars, I'm sure we did something similar to that years ago and it was abused to b*ggery
  • Replace that with Join Dates
  • Not getting Topic Subscription Replies via email, but I'm working on that it may just be me.
  • Posts Per Page being 40 is a little too much, there doesn't seem to be a way to change it
  • The Inbuilt Spell Checker on Firefox doesn't work in the reply box, not too sure on other browsers, and I've seen other forums with this software with a spell checker addon for the reply box.  And I liked the spell checker, stopped me looking like a retard.
  • Ninja Edits, the time should be set at 1 minute like the old gaff.
  • People who've viewed your profile... I like to stalk incognito thank you very much. :ph34r:
  • Flags and medals, although the medals/karma will probably be getting reviewed, but I like my flag

However I do like some of the reply features

Gareth, you should post that in the suggestion topic so it's more likely to be seen. ;)

Yeah on my HTC it's not that great. Topics don't load fast. And scrolling is laggy. We'll see how it goes...

OK good, I'm not the only one that has the site run like sh*t on my phone. Thought it was Rogers f*cking up again.

Yeah, it's disappointing because the old layout ran so smoothly on my phone.(obviously in part because it was older code etc.)

I miss the join dates, but that's about it.  I can't really say if I love it or hate it until I get used to the interface.  Now is too early to tell.
