I figured I'll put a thread here to collect feedback on the new forum, and pass it along, since I know people will have opinions.

There needs to be a better separation of quotes and replies. They all look like a jumbled post right now since the background colors are so simlar.

 

@Sparkart

 

 

I doubt this will even be read but **** it.

 

- There needs to be an option to strip images out of sigs but keep text.

 

- Displaying avatars when viewing threads is needed. The last poster to post in the thread should also be stated. 

 

- @'ing somebody should also be brought back.

 

The old forum worked well for everyone. Bring its best features back.

I agree Patster. The avatars and being able to direct a message at someone so they got a notification was nice.

The forum just can't handle level-headed fact-based analysis using the queen's English.  I should have just said that Vanatta double-diggled that foglet Ferguson in blueberry flavoured buttermilk and I'm sure Banham would have agreed.

Like quota is communist

no longer @ people

Having trouble logging in and staying logged in

When I click a thread with new posts I have already read its sending me to the OP rather than the last post

Can no longer see who the last person to post on a thread was

Message when forum was being upgraded was everything would carry over but all likes etc. have been erased

Removing the agree/disagree function wasn't a good idea either

 

That's what I have found in the first 20 mins here

 

Ive also found that when I click the image button the popup was frozen on my screen till I exited the thread. I didn't want to post a picture, was just looking at the feature.

Quote does not work either lol

One feature that I used a lot on the old forums was the "Recent Discussions" button on the main page as a sub category hovering over  the "Forums" button. It was glad to see that it was still there but alas, it doesn't work and brings you just straight to all the forum main categories. I really liked that i could look at all the most recent threads that people were using. Now i have to go through all of the categories to see all the discussions. The UFC main category is the most utilized one and I will probably be there the most but if someone were to post something of interest to me but in a different main category, I will miss it. I refuse to let my OCD force me to check every main category and all the threads every time I log on. Bring back the "Recent Discussions" button!

 

For now and other than that, good job Sparkart. You should have let us know that big changes were coming.

I was going to go in, and all of the upcoming events to the calendar, but I don't have access to add events. Seems that's only an admin thing. :/

I have started to get used to the current layout and some things are better, but I find I am missing the tags more than anything else right now

I have a suggestion, I've noticed when you are on the last page of a long thread, to go back to the OP you have to either go back 2 pages at a time or exit and re-enter. Could it be made so that you just scroll to the top of the page and press the thread title to go back to page one like previously.

This has probably been said already, but BY FAR the most annoying thing is the mobile forum. There's no way to jump to the beginning of a thread, it automatically takes you to the most recent page. So for the forum games for example, if I want to go to the first page of the camps league thread to see how much cash I have, I have to go back page by page and it's just ridiculous when there's like 100 pages in one thread. I also have a problem with staying logged in on mobile and there's also no way to see who has liked your post. The desktop version of the forum is fine with me though.

There's an option on your profile to find threads you started, but I don't think it goes back very far.

Other than that, I guess the search would be the best option, although I've had hit, and miss luck with it.

We should have an ignore function.  Sometimes it's better to put someone on ignore and don't see his posts vs having to see it and perhaps even responding which may escalate to bans which could have been prevented. 

 

I personally don't need this function at the moment but i think some posters may find it useful. 

 

Thanks for reading.

We do. Click your user name in the top right corner, and there's a 'Manage Ignore Prefs' where you can set it to ignore someone. You can even choose what of their's you want to ignore (posts, PMs, signature, and/or chats).

I can't quote post anymore and the quick reply at the bottom of the page with all the buttons for bold, underline, adding pics is completely gone. I barely figured out the only way i can make a post at all is the button on the top right that says "Reply to topic" WTF happened. This stinks.
