Before I get to the title subject I have an issue with the posting history


To start off we can only view the last 10 posts we made and the "view context" feature doesn't directly take us to our post only the topic where our post is in (Clicking on the post will take you to the start of the topic rather than directly to the post)


But seriously the old system was 200x better


Old system Pro's:


> A superior design (It felt like home)

> Easy to use navigation

> Posting history was perfect

> Profiles looked way better and was easy to use*

> PM system was perfect

> It was beautiful and had everything you needed

> Faster

> Perfected BB Codes


*When you click on someones username you was taken straight to their profile and everything about them was right there


Old system Con's:


> No name changes (It's not a much needed feature but it's a nice addition on forum boards plus I was aware the ACP was as some put it "Held together with duck tape") but that was the only thing that needed a fix right?


OK so I appreciate Tanks hard work and the fact I'm just a member saying this but i just have to get this off my chest and speak my mind


Sure it's nice and still a work in progress but even when it's complete it will never beat the old school GTAF


Not all change is for the better

It will never be back, but you can still try Almost610's script, it gives old feeling.

While all appeared fine on the old forum, there were severe issues behind the scenes. That said, the new forum is staying, so you best get used to it.
