I don't like this new layout much. Instead of displaying useful information like a join date there is instead a very large number that I don't get. Also, why such large avatars? I do however like the higher amount of posts per page and the collapsible sidebar is also handy considering how thin the posts appear on my screen.

 

I can only hope that the design will be tweaked over time for a better experience.

 

EDIT: Sort out the quoting system!

EDIT 2: Flags are missing!

I completely love the new design, so hard to script like this. The problems are the medals and the "preview post" button. They are disabled.

 

Others are just perfect, no doubt :^:

I don't think I'll get used to this, one of the best things about the old one for me was how it looked it was very simple to use.

 

 

Edit: My avatar is gone too!

Can't you bring the old GTAF layout as a skin?

I hope so, this new one is rubbish.

 

They dont even have the little flags under your avatar anymore.

The old layout brought back as a skin and this X above Members thing to be placed somewhere else. Elsewise I kinda like it!

Edit: Accidentally double posted.

I have a few suggestions:

 

1: Display post count instead of the respect when viewing topics. If possible, remove the respect fully in the coming days, or find a workaround of it, because, it's already massively abused...It's gonna get real bad soon once everyone gets used to the V2.

2: Is it possible to revert to the old posts per page number, of 20 posts per page, rather then 50 posts per page as it was now? I'm fine it stays this way, but just asking, it would be nicer. And it take sa while to scroll through pages.

3: Announcements forum? Where. Also, if possible, move "The Network" above GTA V section, or make a separate "announcements" sub-forum above the V section, so everyone can be up to date with frequent changes that are going to be now.

Dont get me wrong, the whole forum change looks kinda cool (like how I can see who recently viewed my profile), but that aside, I fear that it'll become glitchy in the following weeks. Maybe I have to get more used to it, like with youtubes new layout, though.

 

Still, hats off to you all

I agree with these two, especially the second one as it seems to take forever to scroll to the bottom of a page that has alot of posts on it.

 

Also can we make the file size for our avatar/photos bigger than 100kb?

I appricate the work of the Admins and there're a lot new and very helpful and cool functions... but as I post before,

I'm not a fan of the new IPB designs. And I never was. Oldschool is best:

Exactly the old one was very logical and laid lout nicely, this new one seems to be going for design over user friendliness.

The old one was easier to view.

 

I dont see this as an improvement.

When browsing forums, the topics take too much space.

 

And why are all of them bright white? It's not pleasant for the eyes, plus you can't keep track of what topics you've read. (In the old layout they would turn grey once you've read all posts.)

 

EDIT: Ah, I see. I think the blue dot to the left means there are new posts in that topic. Well, this definitely takes some time getting used to.

More of a downgrade than upgrade.

I got a great Phone, but if i use the forum on my Phone its getting really slow and stuff :/

Anyway they should add a option that we can choose between new and old forum layout.

The font of the topic overview is horrible, the rest looks better tbh :catloaf:

No, it's not. Functions has been improved a lot and yes, a lot has been made easier. The only thing everyone is complaing is the design. At least I only can see that.

I really appericate the work of the Admins and I really like some of the functions, and I missed them from other Forums where I (was) mod as well. Maybe some improvments

can be done at the layout but I think it's already great.

It looks great! I've only got one complaint though, I really wish we could see when the person was registered. Like we could before, right next to our posts.

The new layout definitely looks way better and smoother. Now it's time to get used to it.

I like this new style, there is only one complaint and that is: it's difficult to see what has been quoted. It's almost the same colour as the background.
Good job !

I like the new features but I hate the new layout, the bbcodes are messed up, and it's hard to see quoted posts.

Where are the flags? Medals? Why have all of our pictures been reset? The top images looks great but besides that it's just too sterile and generic...

Also what do the numbers under the username mean? Members? Members of what :panic:

Ugh, I don't like how the topic titles look. It's harder to see which ones you've read and replied to.

Maybe I just need to get used to it, but that was my first impression.

 

Edit: YOU CAN MULTIQUOTE NOW! YES! :D

I noticed that as well. I only had an old respect list and some passwords there, but I wish they could have copied them somewhere else for us at least.
