New Forum layout/upgrade

Post by DontBeaWuss » Thu Oct 31, 2019 9:51 pm

Sorry to say but I hate the new Forum look...it's too bright, unless there's a way to change to page colours and, it's difficult to see at a glance latest entries from players.

Not sure why you did this but, for me anyway, it looks more basic than it did before.

I agree, I prefered the old style.

Firefly will not admit a mistake. If they made a change, then they think it is an improvement, regardless of what players actually think.

No idea why it was 'upgraded' in the first place...not many players seemed to use this area anyway and, looking at the entries since the 'upgrade', it seems far fewer players have had anything to contribute to it...what a waste of time and resources.

This format looks more like a reconditioned IRC chat board than a forum. At least put the "Active Topics" selection up top again so that I can find it quickly.

Also please put some text in ALL the selection buttons, most of them just show up as blank squares in my browser. If you are using images on these buttons, then please ensure that the images are from your same domain instead of from some unsecured remote location.

In my opinion, using a horizontal rule to separate different entries for a topic is much more appealing and is easier to keep track of than these ridiculous "Re: ?????" tags

Re: This Format sucks. :)

I really don't mind occasional changes to things, but in the future please ensure that these changes may actually be desired by the rest of us before implementing them. Different or newer is not always better. :)

Hi.

The forums were upgraded to update the forum software and server framework. Due to this, the previous style was incompatible with the latest version, so a new style was selected. This style has all the previous features, and is more streamlined in many areas, particularly for mobile users.

Thanks

Well, can we have a better "new style" forum then please? This is the most unfriendly piece of upgraded boxes I've seen in a looooong time.

And please implement some of Champion's comments because it is really difficult seeing the latest entries without having to spend time and energy looking for latest stuff.

It may be better for mobile users but you've really let non-mobile users down.

From the top-left, use the Quick Links dropdown, and you can view Unread Posts and Active Topics.
